Pixel Tablet may get 64-bit Android OS

Published

In 2023, Google plans to bring the Pixel Tablet to the market, but the announcement is expected in the current. And yet, judging by some reports, the new tablet will come with 64-bit software. This means that it will not be able to run 32-bit applications.

This is indicated by a find made by Esper senior editor Mishaal Rahman. He revealed that Google is testing a 64-bit build of Android 13 on a device codenamed Tangor, which is believed to be the Pixel Tablet.

Since mid-2019, Google has required developers to include 64-bit support for software packages that are published to the Play Store. Thus, the company is smoothly preparing the ground for the transition to a 64-bit OS. It is noted that the latest or regularly supported applications and games in the Play Store should work on such a system without problems. Questions may arise only if you run old or not adapted programs.

As for the reasons for moving to 64-bit, the end of support for 32-bit applications will reduce the size of the codebase, speed up work, and may reduce the memory consumption of applications.

At the same time, there are still smartphones and tablets with 32-bit processors on the market. It is not yet clear whether the company will wait for their natural obsolescence or not.

Earlier, Mishaal Rahman said that Xiaomi proposed blocking the ability to install APK files from third-party sources.

Today, Elon Musk presented a prototype of the Optimus robot – it already walks and sends air hearts to everyone. And after the official part of the event, the head of Tesla wrote the following verbatim on Twitter: “Of course, there will be a Catwoman version of our robot Optimus“.

The cyberpunk we deserve?  Twitter users were enthusiastic about the announcement of Elon Musk's robot

An interesting statement was received with enthusiasm – the message received over 60 thousand likes, despite the fact that this is just a one-line announcement. Twitter users joke that through the efforts of Tesla, single men will finally be able to get a robot girlfriend.

When the robo-version of Catwoman will appear, it is not reported. Actually, Optimus itself is not yet ready: during the announcement, Musk noted that “there is still a lot of work to be done to improve Optimus and test it“. According to his forecasts, the robot will be perfect in 5-10 years. “I think Optimus will be incredible in five or 10 years, mind blowing“, – he said.

The robot will use Tesla-designed components, including a battery that sits on its torso, a chip system, and actuators to control its limbs. At the same time, the autopilot system, which is used on Tesla electric vehicles, will be installed in it. According to Musk, Optimus will cost “probably less than 20 thousand dollars“. Let’s hope the company doesn’t jack up the price of the Catwoman robot.

“iPhone 13 Pro Max battery is draining like crazy. Apple needs to do something about this.” A common problem in iOS 16 has not gone away

iPhone 13 Pro Max battery is draining like crazy Apple

There were many bugs in iOS 16, and Apple has already released two updates that fixed some of them. However, widespread reports of rapid battery drain continue to appear on various forums.

The 9to5Mac resource published the results of a survey on iOS 16 battery life. 14,000 people took part in the survey, of which 63% of respondents reported that battery life in iOS 16 has become noticeably worse.

“iPhone 13 Pro Max battery is draining like crazy.  Apple needs to do something about this.

Here are some user reviews:

  • My iPhone 12 battery life literally halved after I installed iOS16. I fully charge twice a day, which is completely unproductive. Apple definitely needs to do something about this.
  • Like many others, the battery in my iPhone 13 Pro suddenly began to melt before our eyes. Before the update, the battery lasted a whole day (06:30-22:00) and I still had about 20% left. And now I have to charge the battery in the middle of the day, while using my smartphone as before.
  • Previously, my iPhone 12 Pro battery lasted all day without fail. Usually more than 10% remained at bedtime. I estimate that battery usage has increased by about 30%. Even a new battery won’t give me a whole day of use. There really is a problem here that Apple needs to fix.
  • iPhone 13 Pro Max battery is draining like crazy. Working time has dropped from 11-12 hours to only 7 hours. It drains very quickly when I use Facetime. I know it takes a few days for the phone to go back to normal, but it’s been almost a week now. I’m thinking of going back to 15.7.

iOS 15.5 users who have not yet updated to iOS 16 can install iOS 15.7, which includes security updates.
