The developers of the most repairable smartphone in the world, Fairphone 2, have released a long-awaited software update with the latest version of Android for the phone.
Fairphone modular smartphones are not well known. However, it was Fairphone 2 and Fairphone 3 that were able to get 10 points out of 10 possible on the iFixit maintainability scale. No other smartphone has been able to achieve this. Thus, Fairphone 2 and Fairphone 3 can still be considered the most maintainable smartphones in the world.
Debuted at the end of 2015, Fairphone 2 originally ran Android 5. Now Android 9 Pie is available to users. Of course, Android 9 Pie isn’t the newest version of the OS either, but it’s noticeably better than the lack of updates.
This delay is due to the main feature of Fairphone 2. Adapting Android 9 Pie to the modular structure was not easy at all.
A total of 115,000 Fairphone 2 smartphones have been sold worldwide since their release five years ago. For FairPhone 3 and 3+ models, the developers have promised to release Android 11 in the second half of 2021.
The iPhone 14 Max is still listed on Apple’s website. It was renamed to iPhone 14 Plus at the last moment
Apple introduced a total of four iPhone 14 series smartphones this year, including the iPhone 14 Plus, which is scheduled for release on October 7th. The last smartphone with the Plus prefix was the iPhone 8 Plus, released in 2017.
However, before the Apple conference, there was a lot of information that this 6.7-inch model is called the iPhone 14 Max. Now there is new evidence that the smartphone was called that. A Dutch tech blog found that there are at least two places in iPhone support documents, including Apple’s official website, where the iPhone 14 Plus is referred to as the iPhone 14 Max. This indicates that the commercial name iPhone 14 Plus was chosen at the last moment, while Apple did not have time to remove all references to the iPhone 14 Max.
Judging by the sales of the iPhone 14, as well as the level of pre-orders for the iPhone 14 Plus, the new model could end up being the most unsuccessful large Apple smartphone ever.

“The Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the best smartphone in Samsung’s history.” The new flagship will not be completely similar to its predecessor
The well-known insider Ice Universe, who regularly shares exclusive information about the latest in the mobile industry, made a loud statement about the yet unannounced Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra smartphone.
Overall, I think the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the best smartphone Samsung has ever made.
This seems strange, given that the first renders show that the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra is virtually indistinguishable from its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. However, Ice Universe has reasons for such a statement. He provided comparison images of Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.
As for the chin and curved screen, the Galaxy S23 Ultra is less curved and closer to a flat screen.
This insider was the first to accurately talk about the new trend of smartphones with waterfall screens, the notch in the iPhone X, the new design of the iPhone 14, and Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor. Exclusive information about new products is leaked to him by sources in the research and development department of the South Korean giant.
The iPhone 14 Pro was completely destroyed, but the cameras remained intact. The blogger tested the smartphone for durability with a blender
What happens if you put the new iPhone 14 Pro in a blender and turn it on? The author of the TechRex channel decided to check this. You can see the results of this experiment in the video below.
The smartphone, of course, could not stand such a test and was completely destroyed very quickly. Moreover, the blender itself suffered in the process: its bowl burst.
But what is interesting is that the cameras of the smartphone were not affected. The glass around the lenses, of course, did not survive the loads, but the cameras themselves remained intact and did not even get scratches.
