iOS 11 developer Beta 2 went live a few hours ago and, naturally, devoted Apple fans are rolling up their sleeves and digging right in. The update introduces a plethora of optimizations and bug fixes (as well as the inevitable emergence of new bugs), but also a few visible tweaks and additions to existing features.
One would think that having an important announcement such as the launch of a flagship smartphone in just a few days, will prevent OnePlus from focusing on any other activities that will consume resource of any kind.
When it comes to software updates for its high-end OnePlus 3 and 3T, the Chinese company is almost relentless. We reported earlier this week about an important update that was released by OnePlus, and now it looks like another one is making its way to both smartphones.
However, unlike the previous update that brought a couple of new features …
The newest stable version of Chrome for Android dropped in the Google Play last week, so it makes sense for Google to start working on the next iteration.
Chrome 60 is now available for download in the beta channel and brings lots of new features and improvements into the mix. The most important seems to be the addition of a new search widget that includes a shortcut allowing users to search Chrome using their voice.
Google has also improved the way the browser loads fonts on different websites. Usually, Chrome delays rendering text until the used font is available, which means that …
In the past few years, Nova Launcher has successfully positioned itself as Android customization geeks’ default launcher choice, thanks to its ever-increasing set of features. And with its most recent stable release, version number 5.2, that list grew once again with several new additions.
Sony has been working on the Xperia Home for a few years now, but the application was only available to those who enrolled in the beta. The good news is starting today, anyone with access to Google Play Store will be able to download the Sony Xperia Home.
The app is still in beta, but at least you’ll now have a quickest and fastest way to download and install it on your smartphone. Along with the release of the Xperia Home launcher in the Google Play Store, Sony also made it available to additional Xperia smartphones.
The Xperia Home was exclusive to Sony’s high-end smartphones, but …
Apple has released to developers today, the second beta version of watchOS 3.2.3. If you’re not a registered developer, you will have to wait for Apple to push out the final version of the build. Because it is impossible to downgrade software on the Apple Watch, Apple allows beta versions of watchOS to be made available to developers only. The last new release for consumers, watchOS 3.2.2, was released two weeks ago.
The first beta of watchOS 3.2.3, which was seeded to developers just a week ago, contained no new features of note, or even bug fixes. This probably indicates that the new beta …
The first day of I/O was very fruitful for Google, as the search giant had quite a few announcements for Android fans. Android Go, Expeditions, Smart Reply for Gmail are just some of the new stuff that we’ve already reported about recently, but we’re expecting new announcements later today.
For those who can’t wait for the final Android O release, Google had something else prepared. An updated version of Android O Developer Preview is now available for download.
If you’ve already installed the first Android O Dev Preview, then the OTA image should be automatically …
The OnePlus 3 and 3T are the only smartphones that the Chinese company keeps updating in the last couple of months. Either you’re running HydrogenOS or OxygenOS, the updates are coming almost on a monthly basis on both devices.
The latest update is aimed at Chinese customers running HydrogenOS on their OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones. The newest beta version of the ROM is all about fixing issues, and the changelog is similar in both cases.
Once among the most popular Android launchers, Apex Launcher had been left unattended for the last two years, but that’s about to change as developers announced last month they will start updating the app soon.
However, before launching new updates to Apex Launcher, the developer want users feedback, which is why they plan to kick off a beta program that will allow them to test new features and improvements before they go live in the Google Play store.
Those who wish to join the beta program should know that the beta version of Apex Launcher will replace …
We are getting closer to the introduction of Android O. Google has shut down the Android Nougat beta program that allowed subscribers to get early access to new versions of Android Nougat. Android O, which the consensus expects to be named Android Oreo, will probably be unveiled between May 17th and May 19th during Google I/O. Anyone still using the Android Nougat beta program should have automatically received the last publicly released version of the OS.
As far as developers are concerned, the Android O Developer Preview started officially on March 21st; it will end some time in this year’s …
