Since the end of last year, Microsoft has begun to diligently get rid of the multimedia platform Adobe Flash: this year there was even a special update that removes Flash from Windows 10. And now the classic Edge browser will suffer the same fate.
Microsoft said it would end support for it on March 9, with no security updates from that date. Well, Microsoft wants to completely get rid of the classic Edge next month: on April 13, an update will be released that will replace the classic Edge with a new one – on the Chromium engine. It will replace the old Edge in all versions of Windows 10, but Windows 7 and Windows 8 are not participating in this old Edge replacement program.
iOS 16 and iPhone 14 will bring with them a huge amount of advertising
For mobile phone makers, embedding ads into software is a big money-maker. Apple has stepped up its efforts to place marketing ads on its software, including iOS 16, according to Bloomberg.
The company has tested adding sponsored content to search results in the Maps app as well as in the App Store. Advertisements may also appear in Apple’s book and podcast business. Reportedly, Apple aims to triple the annual revenue from this part.
The source confirms that users will see a lot more ads with the release of iOS 16 and iPhone 14 this year. This behavior by Apple is not unexpected, since many competitors from the Android camp have been moving in this direction for a long time.
The average selling price of the iPhone 14 series is expected to rise by around 15%. The presentation of the new line will take place in September.
Apple demanded to remove animated emoji from Telegram
After the release of a major Telegram update, the creator of the messenger, Pavel Durov, explained why Apple delayed the release of the iOS version of the application for a long time. It turns out that the company was embarrassed by the animated emoji that debuted in the messenger.
After extensive media coverage of my previous post, Apple responded to us with a demand to reduce the functionality of the upcoming Telegram update by removing Telemoji, improved versions of the standard emoji in vector format with animation. This is a puzzling move on Apple’s part, as Telemoji will create a whole new dimension for its low-res static emoji and greatly enrich their ecosystem. But in the long run, this is a boon for Telegram – now we will make Telemoji even more unique and recognizable. In addition, we’ve included 10 other emoji sets in today’s update. Along with the ability for any user to upload their own.
Animated emoji, which debuted in Telegram’s latest update, are aimed primarily at the messenger’s Premium subscribers. And users of the free version can only admire them in chats and publish them in Favorites. Some emoji can be interactive – in chats they respond to mouse clicks or touches on the touch screen. In addition, Premium users have the opportunity to block the sending of voice and video messages to themselves, as well as to give a subscription as a gift.
An Apple representative contacted 9to5Mac with more information about the Telegram update. Some of the new Telegram emojis have the same wording as Apple’s branded emojis. Third party developers cannot create applications that “similar to an existing Apple product”. As per App Store guidelines 5.2.5. Apple explicitly states in the same rule that this includes a ban on copying Apple’s emoji design.
Android 12 is inferior in popularity to Android 11, Android 10 and even Android 9
The latest Android distribution data from Google shows that Android 11 (Android R) currently has the largest user base. About 27% of users remain on this operating system.
Next come Android 10 (Android Q) with a score of 18.8% and Android 9 (Android P), which occupies 14.5% of the market. Although Android 12 (Android S) is almost a year old, this operating system only ranks fourth with a score of 13.5%. That is, today, among active Android devices, only one in eight uses Android 12.
Perhaps thanks to IoT devices and car head units, the Android 4.x operating system, launched more than 10 years ago, still maintains its user base and occupies 1.2% of the market.
The release of Android 13 should take place in September this year, and the first smartphones with this OS should be the Google Pixel 7, which will be released in October.
