As much as many of us would like to have the latest and greatest smartphone technology, the increasing cost of smartphones these days means that even upgrading every other year is still a bit too pricey to do so. This means that there are many out there who are probably holding onto much older devices.
It has been about two years since Samsung launched the Galaxy S8 handsets, and the good news for owners of the device is that if you were worried that Samsung had forgotten about you, it seems that they haven’t. According to a report from SamMobile, it appears that the company has started the rollout of the Android 9.0 Pie update for users in Germany.
If you’re the owner of the Razer Phone 2 and are wondering where the Android 9.0 Pie update for your phone is, not to worry because it looks like it should be released in the next week or so. This is according to Razer who announced that the Android Pie update will be issued to the Razer Phone 2 starting on the 27th of February.
Some Android manufacturers like to make a big deal when they release a major OS update for their devices. Motorola doesn’t really do that. It rolls out the updates quietly and just confirms their impending arrival by uploading the changelog on its official support website. It has now done that for the Moto G6.
The problem with Android updates is that unless you own a Pixel handset, if and when the latest Android update is released for your device is really anyone’s guess. Some manufacturers are faster than others, but once again it isn’t exactly predictable. However HMD Global wants to take out some of the guesswork involved.
There are many reasons why users will want to change their DNS. A good reason is privacy where using another DNS could prevent your ISP from tracking what you are doing. Another reason is that it allows users to bypass certain blocks or restrictions that their ISP might have in place, like access to certain websites.
If you’re a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 owner who might have been feeling a little bummed that there was no Android Pie update for you in 2018, not to worry because it looks like Samsung is pretty eager at kickstarting 2019 with some good news. According to reports, it appears that the stable version of Android 9.0 Pie is being rolled out to Galaxy Note 9 owners starting in Germany.
lg g7The LG G7 was released earlier this year, although unlike some other 2018 smartphones, it has yet to receive its Android 9.0 Pie update. However the good news is that LG G7 owners might not have to wait much longer because according to LG Korea (via GSMArena), it seems that the handset is set to receive its Android Pie update in the first quarter of 2019.
When it comes to Android updates, most companies would generally prefer to focus on their latest flagship smartphones, so it can be a bit worrying if you use an older handset and are wondering whether or not an update will make its way to you. Thankfully for OnePlus 5 and 5T owners, it seems that the latest Android update is now making its way to handsets.
In 2016 Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 7, but unfortunately due to battery issues, there were widespread reports of the phone exploding and catching on fire, leading to Samsung recalling all models. The company then decided to fix the issue and re-release the handset as the “Fan Edition”.
If you’re the owner of a Samsung flagship device and you’re wondering when the Android Pie update will be arriving for your phone, especially in the face of other manufacturers such as Essential who have already released the Android 9.0 update to their handset, wonder no more as Samsung has confirmed the release schedule for the Galaxy S9 and S9+.
So we know that OnePlus has promised that they will be bringing the Android 9.0 Pie update to its eligible phones. Some devices have since received the update, but unfortunately for older devices like the OnePlus 3, 3T, 5, and 5T, it seems that the update has been delayed due to additional work that is needed to be done.
One of the frustrating things experienced by law enforcement officials and agencies is trying to get into the phone of a suspect. This is because companies such as Apple and Google have made it so that only the users themselves know the passwords to their phones (assuming they use one), so even if they wanted to, they couldn’t unlock devices remotely.
Say what you will about Apple’s iOS system and its services, but if there is one area that Apple excels in, it would be its iCloud system which does a fantastic and seamless job of backing up user data to the cloud, syncing it, and restoring it when the user buys a new device. Thankfully for Android users, it seems like Google is testing something similar for Android 9.0 Pie.
