The team of the popular messenger WhatsApp, part of the Facebook company, has begun preparations to end support for older versions of the iPhone.
As the thematic resource WABetaInfo noted, in the fresh beta version of WhatsApp for iOS, support for the iOS 9 operating system has disappeared.
Note that the last reduction in mobile support from WhatsApp took place in February 2020. Then the WhatsApp application stopped working on smartphones with the Android operating system version 2.3.7 and older, as well as iOS 8 and older.
The stable version of WhatsApp has no new restrictions yet. Apparently, the end of support for iOS 9 in the stable version of WhatsApp will be officially announced later. As reported now in the Help on the WhatsApp website, the app is still supported on Android 4.0.3 or later, iOS 9 or later, and KaiOS 2.5.1 or later.
“There are a lot of technical problems that we are slowly coping with.” Evgeny Kaspersky spoke about a branded secure smartphone, which does not yet have a camera and performance problems
On the sidelines of the Army-2022 forum, Kaspersky Lab CEO Evgeny Kaspersky announced that the company is finalizing the functionality of its hack-proof mobile phone to work with critical infrastructure.
“We wrote everything from scratch, so we still need to finish it. Camera does not work. We do, but it takes time. Plus performance – there is still work to make it work at the same speed that we are used to. There are a lot of technical problems that we are slowly coping with. When we show it and say it’s ready, I don’t know“Kaspersky said.
According to him, the device will be something between a regular smartphone and a push-button phone. “However, we do not consider it as a replacement for a regular smartphone. Still, this is more for working with critical infrastructure. … Modernity requires that infrastructure can be managed remotely. Therefore, a device is required that will be guaranteed unhackable. Therefore, we are making a device that will have a fairly limited functionality. There will be no App Store, there will be no chips that everyone loves on smartphones, but it will be a thing that can be safely controlled by a conditional turbine“Kaspersky added.
For the first time, Kaspersky announced work on creating smartphones under its own brand with protection against hackers in December 2020, then it was assumed that they would appear in 2021.
Folding smartphones Samsung Galaxy Z actively poach users of other brands. Also, buyers of such devices are more loyal.
Samsung has once again confirmed that it has big plans for the foldable smartphone market.
The head of the mobile division said that foldable Galaxy Z smartphones attract new customers three times more often than the flagship Galaxy S models. In this case, we mean users who previously owned smartphones from other brands, that is, Samsung foldable smartphones attract people who have not previously chosen regular smartphones Samsung.
The company also says that the Galaxy Z lineup does an excellent job of maintaining loyalty: these smartphones have a corresponding rate of 10% higher than the Galaxy S.
Given all this, the claim that by 2025 Galaxy Z smartphones will outsell the Galaxy S line does not seem like something strange.
The iPhone 14 Pro Max feels like a brick, and the 48-megapixel camera shoots worse at night than the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Appeared the first review of the upcoming updates Apple
An unknown source’s impressions of using the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have appeared on the Web.
The information was shared by insider LeaksApplePro, who, among other things, shared the correct images of the iPhone 13 before the announcement last year. The insider does not disclose who exactly shared his impressions, but this is not so important.
So, the new shape of the notch in the screen does not affect the user experience. Physically, the new notch is smaller than the current one, but it works pretty much the same. That is, apparently, Apple has not figured out how to effectively use the freed up screen area.
The new camera also has nuances. The source says that during the day the new 48-megapixel sensor turns out to be the best among smartphone cameras, but at night everything is not so good, and the same iPhone 13 Pro takes better pictures and less noisy. But Apple may well fix this with a software update.
The source also says that according to his feelings, autonomy has grown by a couple of hours, but he can’t say for sure. But the speakers definitely got better.
The screens of new products are about the same as in the current generation, as well as the huge mass of the top model. The source writes that the iPhone 14 Pro Max feels like a brick.
