Nexus 7 2016 Android N Update Rumoured For Google

While the Huawei made Nexus 6P has had a few reported technical problems, on the whole, it seems, many people are quite happy with both Google’s 2015 Nexus offerings, which also includes the LG-made Nexus 5X. So despite a few foibles Google will, allegedly, bring Huawei back for another go inside 2016. That’s one set of rumours anyway, but as is often the case with these things, there are multiple voices suggesting a range of other possibilities, including HTC, LG, and Motorola, amongst others.


The very earliest rumours we heard suggested that rather than working on another Nexus 6 model (or perhaps as well as?) Huawei is being drafted in to re-boot another member of Google’s existing Nexus family – the Nexus 7 tablet.

The last two generations of Nexus 7 proved pretty popular with consumers, but for a while Google reined in its tablet efforts: it didn’t reboot the popular Nexus 10, and we haven’t heard murmurings of a new Nexus 7 or Nexus 10 for a good long while. With tablet sales declinging across the board, in a way this move away from tablets was an understandable one, but for whatever reason, it seems, Google may be considering another crack at the space.

The word comes via AndroidHeadlines, which claims the new tablet will be launched next year as a Nexus 7 (2016), and it’ll be made by Huawei. Of course, it’s worth pointing out that the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P were rumoured as the Nexus 5 (2015) and Nexus 6 (2015) respectively, but Google seems to have changed its naming convention. We discovered via the comments of Google engineers post-launch that the ‘X’ and ‘P’ monikers were very deliberately chosen to signify the place of each device in the Nexus range (‘X’ being the core of the ‘Nexus’ brand, and ‘P’ being ‘Premium’), so it seems quite likely to us that Google will come up with something similar for the 2016 Nexus 7 edition.

In other Nexus-based news, word on the street suggests HTC has been commissioned by Google to build its 2016 Nexus handsets. Nothing has been announced officially just yet by either Google or HTC, so this is very much a rumour as of right now.

News of the collaboration came via China’s Weibo network and is one of the first slices of news we’ve heard about Google’s 2016 Nexus handsets. There will be two handsets — one with a 5in display, the other a 5.5in setup — and both will run Android N.

The original Nexus 7 set the tablet market alight and jump-started consumer interest in more affordable tablet solutions. The Nexus 7 proved that you didn’t need to spend BIG BUCKS to get a decent tablet experience and, because it launched the same year as the awesome Nexus 4, the slate did an excellent job of promoting the virtues of going pure Android with a Nexus device, giving users a choice of both tablet and smartphone.

Back in 2012 the Nexus 7 was selling like hot cakes. As per CNET’s report from the era, Asus reported that sales kicked off at around 500,000 a month, which then went up to 600, the 700K before topping out at close to a million unit sales per month during the third quarter of 2012. Similarly, Apple sold around 14 million iPads during the same quarter. Still, though, one million shipments a month is pretty damn good for a budget Android tablet.

Amazon and a whole host of other firms followed suit, but it was the Nexus 7 that predominantly stole the hearts and minds of consumers. It was deadly cheap and packed with great specs and hardware. I remember testing it in 2012 and being blown away by just how good it was — it ran Max Payne without breaking sweat and stock Android looked simply sublime running on its large 7in display. The Nexus 7 was the first Android tablet I ever fell in love with.

AH’s source claims the project is “already on the way” and may be launched at 2016’s Google I/O conference, which would probably be somewhere between June-August if previous years are any indicator.

Sadly there’s not much more to go on at the moment, but we can make a few educated guesses. For starters it will, of course, feature a 7in display (thanks Captain Obvious), and it’ll likely be either the debut device or one of several devices running a fresh new build of Android; we’d be looking at Android N by this point, and while the version numbers are less predictable it could well be Android 7.0.

“Android N will bring a polished split-screen mode for tablets and smartphones alike,” says Android Pit, “making yet another third-party addition a core part of stock Android, just like Battery Saver in Lollipop and fingerprint support in Marshmallow. The reason it has taken Google this long to bring split-screen is down to two factors: Google must optimise the function for all screen sizes, definitions and densities; Google must make the feature universal so all applications, not just a few, work in split screen.”

We will also apparently get our first look at Google’s merger of ChromeOS and Android at this year’s Google I/O event. Neither platform is being killed, however, and the two will work together seamlessly as part of one another. We have a piece about the Galaxy S6 which speculates about the possibility of what’s possible with handsets running 6GB of RAM and modern CPUS when joined up with dummy laptops.

“Chrome is essentially being folded into Android,” says The Verge, “because Android has emerged as the dominant operating system by quite a long stretch. Combining the two operating systems means setting up Android to run on laptops and desktop computers, which would require big changes, as well as supporting the Google Play Store. Chromebooks will reportedly receive a new name to reflect the new OS.”

As for the confectionary name? Nougat? Nutella? Your guess is as good as ours.

In terms of specs and hardware the Nexus 7 2016 will likely be a largely different beast to what came before. Inside we could see a Snapdragon 810 CPU — Huawei seems to be the only OEM that can tame it —, 3GB of RAM and updated wireless radios, like support for 4G and improved Wi-Fi connectivity.

A QHD panel could make an appearance as well, though this could be rather contentious — Google will want to keep the price low, so concessions will have to be made. BUT, seeing as this is largely a device for consuming media you’d think Google would make cuts elsewhere (RAM, imaging, CPU and radios).

Personally, I’d be happy with a great display and middle of the road specs: all I use my tablet for is browsing the web and watching movies in bed, so I don’t need the latest and greatest hardware inside it. That way you keep the core Nexus 7 experience whilst adding a couple of new features but all the while keeping the price nice and competitive.

We would hope, however, that Google does follow up on the also Huawei-made Nexus 6P with its premium metal build by offering something similar on the Nexus 7 (2016). Stay tuned as there’s sure to be more rumours forthcoming and we’ll update accordingly as and when.

How to upgrade to iOS 9 The complete guide

With today’s release of iOS 9, Apple has introduced a number of exciting new features. From the stylish News app to side-by-side multitasking on the iPad, iOS 9 is a must-have update for anyone with a device running the previous release. Ready to make the jump? Here’s how.


First off, back up everything. The update process should leave all of your data intact, but there’s always a chance that something bad could happen. Whether you’re backing up to your computer or iCloud, just make sure your important files are securely resting on some other device.

Next, you’ll need to decide how you want to update your device. You can upgrade directly on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, but those of us with 16GB models might have a difficult time squeezing enough space to successfully store the update file. Alternately, you can plug your device into a Mac or PC running iTunes, and perform the update from there. The method is completely up to you — just follow the applicable guide below.

Update on your iOS device


1. Launch the Settings app

From your home screen, find your Settings app, and tap on the icon. Once launched, tap on the “General” button.


2. Go to “Software Update”

From the “General” screen, tap the “Software Update” button.


3. Download and install the update

On this screen, you should be notified that a new version of iOS is available. Tap “Download and Install,” and follow the instructions. This process will take a while, so make sure you have plenty of battery life before jumping in. Being plugged into a wall outlet or computer would be even better.


4. Finish up

Once the OS update has finished installing, you’ll be given a “Hello” screen, and then told that the update is complete. Follow the instructions, and enter your passwords when prompted. You’re now ready to use iOS 9.

Update with iTunes


1. Plug in, and launch iTunes

When you launch iTunes with your iOS device plugged into your Mac or PC, you should see this dialog box. Click “Download and Update” to begin the process. Your device will be backed up, and the OS update will begin to download.


2. Push the update to your device

Once the download has completed, you’ll be presented with another dialog. When you’re ready to go, press the “Update” button. This will definitely take some time, so expect to leave your iOS device plugged in for a long while. Whatever you do, don’t interrupt the process.


3. Finish up

Once your device reboots, you’ll be greeted with a “Hello” screen. Swipe away, follow the instructions, and you’re ready to enjoy all that iOS 9 has to offer.

Microsoft Office 2016 update for Windows on September 22

Microsoft Corp. It seems that Apple’s iOS is not the only one to receive an Office update this month. Microsoft announced a couple of days ago the launch date of the long-anticipated Office update on Windows.


When will it be available?

Office 22 will be available on September 22, while Office customers with volume licensing agreements will be able to download the software on October 1.

Plenty of new features!

The new update includes some rather minor, but worth mentioning new features with the most notable of them all being the ability of a document to be co-edited by several users in real time from the desktop app and the sync of files to OneDrive in the cloud.

A few dark and colourful theme options have been added by Microsoft, while the Excel app now includes some new charts.

Furthermore, Microsoft is adding a couple of new tools to Office 2016, the Data Loss Prevention and Multi-factor Authentication.

What’s more interesting is that the Public Preview version of Office 2016 has been available since March, so Microsoft had enough time to receive some feedback and work on the users’ suggestions.

According to those, the company stated that it will provide a new update model called “Current Branch for Business,” which will offer three cumulative feature updates per year while continuing to offer monthly security updates.

But besides all the above, what would particularly be interesting to see, is the cross-platform approach that Microsoft is working on with its new Office software.

Let’s not forget that Office 2016 for Mac was previously released in July, which was the first time the company officially confirmed rumours about the standalone version in September for DOWNLOAD.

HTC One M9 gets Android 5.1 Lollipop and Stagefright fix

If you own an HTC One M9 purchased from Verizon, you’ll be happy to hear that an update is finally headed your way. We’re talking about the one incorporating Android 5.1 Lollipop – and this is something that’s already been rolled out in many parts of the world, as well as to One M9 units sold by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.


And now it’s Verizon’s turn to release it. There are a couple of added goodies in there too, perhaps to try and make up for the delay in some way.

Mo Versy Say: HTC One (M9) Verizon customers! Received approval for L5.1 which will OTA out tomorrow. Includes Stagefright fix,Band 3 & 7 enabled -roaming

According to Mo Versi, HTC’s VP of Product Management, the ugly Stagefright vulnerability has been fixed in the new software. Furthermore, you’ll also get support for LTE bands 3 and 7 (1800 MHz and 2600 MHz) when roaming, so your phone will be able to connect to even more high-speed networks abroad.

The update will start rolling out over-the-air today, but as usual do expect it to take a while for it to reach all the devices out there. If you’re impatient you can keep checking for its availability by going to the appropriate section of your Settings menu.

iTunes 12.2 update indicates new Gold

iTunes 12.2 update indicates new gold, dark blue, dark pink iPod nano, touch + shuffle colors.

Apple could be preparing to refresh its aging iPod lineup with new colors, according to a new image found inside of yesterday’s iTunes 12.2 update for Apple Music. With the new update, when a user plugs in an iPod for the first time, the above image showcasing a dark blue iPod touch, a gold iPod nano, and a dark pink iPod shuffle appear. None of those iPod color options currently exist, indicating that Apple could be preparing to refresh its line with those richer tones. Interestingly, the Touch lacks a hole for the camera loop.


It is possible that the image is simply a Photoshop error, which would not be unprecedented, but our look into the previous version of iTunes, version 12.1.2, indicates that the image is actually new, which means that it was intentionally designed. There is currently no indication as to if and when Apple is planning to release new iPod colors, but we are told that iPod nano and touch stock at Apple Stores is currently seeing some temporary shortages.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge Update Android Lollipop

Before the Galaxy S6 edge brought its curvaceous edginess to the fore, Samsung dabbled in rounded-off displays with the Galaxy Note Edge. It’s a device that owners are crazy about, and in our own review, we enjoyed almost every aspect aside from the high price. With a number of smartphones currently getting their Android Lollipop updates, the Note Edge is also joining in the fun, with Verizon now rolling out the OTA of version 5.0.


Coinciding with the release of Android 5.1 for the Motorola DROID Turbo on Verizon, Android 5.0 for the Note Edge adds improved notifications, general performance tweaks, and of course, the Material Design makeover. With US Cellular and T-Mobile having already rolled Lollipop out for the Galaxy Note Edge quite a while ago now, it’s good to see that Verizon has finally got to it.

The new update is version N915VVRU2BOF2, and should be making its way over the air as we speak. If you haven’t already gotten the notification, it could take a couple of days, so you may have to sit on your hands for just a little longer.

With a boatload of great features including a quad-HD display, slick design, impressive processor and an equally strong camera, the Galaxy Note Edge is unquestionably a great device. Like the S6 edge, however, it doesn’t come cheap, and with stiff competition from Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus upon its release last year, probably doesn’t get the recognition that it deserves.

HTC Desire Eye Desire 816 Start Receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop Update

HTC on Tuesday announced the start of the rollout of the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the HTC Desire Eye, alongside the HTC Desire 816.

The announcement came via HTC UK’s Twitter handle, which stated “We are proud to announce that we are rolling out #Lollipop for Desire Eye and 816 smartphones from today. Enjoy!”


A report from earlier this week, had claimed the HTC One (E8) and HTC Butterfly 2 were also receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update alongside the Desire Eye, but so far, there is no official word about a Lollipop update rollout for those phones. The Taiwanese smartphone maker also did not provide a changelog for the Desire Eye and Desire 816.

However, certain changes that are evident in Android 5.0 Lollipop include the new more colourful and animation-filled Material Design UI along with several under-the-hood improvements resulting in better battery usage, faster opening of apps because of ART (Android Run Time) and more.

While HTC failed to mention the size of the update, LlabTooFer, a tipster earlier this week stated that Desire Eye’s Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update will weigh 1008.9MB (ROM 2.19.709.1). The tipster added that HTC with certain models will be skipping bundling Sense 7.0 UI (debuted on the HTC One M9) with the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update, and will instead roll out the new UI to those phones with Android 5.1 Lollipop.

The tipster also claimed the HTC Desire Eye along with the One (M8), One M8s and Butterfly 2 will be receiving the latest Sense 7.0 UI, along with select other smartphones.

HTC last week started issuing a system software update that claims to fix issues with the rear camera of the HTC One M9. As per the report, HTC One M9 seems to be taking better photos in both bright and low-light conditions, both indoors and outdoors, with sharper images, less noise and wash-outs, and more vibrant colours after the update.

Android 5.2 Lollipop Update Appears on Nexus 5

News is like rubbing salt on wounds of the people who are still waiting for the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. Couple of weeks ago, devices like Nexus, Moto G and Android One were spotted running on the Android 5.1 Lollipop.


Today an alleged picture of the Android 5.2 Lollipop build has been spotted running on Nexus 5.

This leak has been spotted on the website Geekbench. A few day ago, Android One devices were spotted in Malaysia running on Android 5.1 Lollipop. This mystery build of 5.2 Lollipop is shown on the website along with the benchmark results and specifications of the device.

What could this Android 5.2 Lollipop build mean

It is a known fact that Nexus devices are the first to get any Android update and Android 5.1 Lollipop still hasn’t been rolled out to everyone. The existence of a 5.2 build can’t be denied and it’s possible that the Android 5.1 Lollipop update could be skipped to facilitate the release of Android 5.2 Lollipop update. The 5.2 build is still a mystery but I hope to see some major changes in the update.

It should be noted that according to Google’s own data, Android 5.0 Lollipop is running only on 1.6% of Android devices.
