Company X (formerly Twitter) Elon Musk was again at the center of the scandal. This time connected not with the virtual, but with the real world. A new sign with a new logo has recently appeared at the company’s headquarters. It turned out that in fact it was installed illegally.
San Francisco authorities say changing letters or symbols on buildings or installing new signage on top of buildings requires special permission, both for safety reasons and to “match the historical character of the building.” The former Twitter did not receive such permission.
As a result, the city authorities initiated an investigation and filed a complaint.
Xiaomi Pad 5 and Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro tablets will receive MIUI 15 – this is good news. But there is also bad
The XiaomiUI resource, which tracks the release of firmware for various Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco devices, shared details about software support for the Xiaomi Pad 5 and Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro tablet computers. There are two news here: good and bad.
The good news is that the devices of the line (and there are three of them – Xiaomi Pad 5, Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 5G and Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro WiFi) will receive MIUI 15, but the bad news is that this firmware will be based on Android 13, and not Android 14. Thus, the release of MIUI 15 will be the last major software update for these models.
Support will be cut: WhatsApp will soon stop working on a number of smartphones. What to do
The team of the popular WhatsApp messenger announced upcoming changes for users of older smartphone models. WhatsApp may stop working on their devices in a month.
The updated WhatsApp support page states:
Starting October 24, 2023, only Android OS version 5.0 and higher will be supported.
Thus, by October 24, WhatsApp users should update the OS version on their smartphone, and if Android 5.0 or a newer version is not supported, think about changing the device. After “Day X”, all WhatsApp services will become unavailable on devices.
As the thematic resource 91mobiles notes, the list of smartphones that will soon lose WhatsApp support includes the following models:
- Samsung Galaxy Note2
- Samsung Galaxy S2
- Samsung Galaxy Nexus
- Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
- HTC One
- HTC Desire HD
- HTC Sensation
- LG Optimus 2X
- Nexus 7
- LG Optimus G Pro
- HTC One
- Sony Xperia Z
- Sony Xperia S2
- Sony Ericsson Xperia Arc3
- Motorola Xoom
- Motorola Droid Razr
The current stable version of WhatsApp requires a device running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (2012 OS version) or later. As for the iPhone, so far the support information on the WhatsApp website has not changed – iOS 12 or later is required for operation.
The battery life of the iPhone 15 Pro Max is better than that of its main Android competitors, but not by much
Among the new iPhone 15, the most autonomous, as we already know, was not the iPhone 15 Pro Max, but it took second place. Now, as Apple’s best solution at the moment, it has been compared with other flagships on the market.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, Pixel 7 Pro, OnePlus 11, Xiaomi 13 Ultra took part in the battle against the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max was also taken for greater effect.
The first to drop out of the race was the Pixel 7 Pro, as having the most power-hungry platform. The device worked for 8 hours 13 minutes. OnePlus 11 was the second to give in, but the gap from the outsider turned out to be very large: the Chinese device worked for 9 hours and 48 minutes. The iPhone 14 Pro Max lasted literally a little longer: 9 hours 59 minutes.
The Xiaomi 13 Ultra worked for exactly 10 hours, the Samsung flagship worked 27 minutes longer, and the iPhone 15 Pro Max took first place with a result of 10 hours and 31 minutes.
Of course, all autonomy tests are carried out differently, so the results may differ, although not radically. But we can state that, firstly, Apple’s flagship is better again this year, and secondly, its advantage over some competitors is not particularly significant.
