    One of the most anticipated features in the new iPhones of 2018 was Dual SIM support which has been a common feature in most Android smartphones. This feature was leaked in the iOS code base quite a while back, but got unveiled with excellent detail in the Apple keynote. Dual SIM was a feature which was limited to entry level or mid-tier smartphones until recent times when manufacturers like Huawei, Samsung, LG, OnePlus have been including Dual-SIM support even in their flagship smartphones. The Need for Dual SIM Why would I want to use 2 SIM cards or phone numbers in a single device?  Users in India and other similar countries use more than one SIM for better connectivity or more attractive tariffs. In markets like US or Europe, Dual SIM phones are a rare breed and every time I travel to these countries, consumers I meet are shocked that such functionality exists and would love to have a single device for work and personal use. Apple is going after this audience who are looking to carry a single smartphone either for business or travel needs. The Apple approach to 2 SIM cards This is not the first time Apple is doing something in ...

    Apple introduced gestures based navigation system with iPhone X last year in September, Android device manufacturers didn’t want to remain behind in the race and so various OEMs started adopting the trend earlier this year and enabled gestures based navigation on taller devices with 18:9 aspect ratio to make single hand operation more comfortable.

    Chrome has been updated to V70 beta as the V69 is finally stable. This beta is not as big as the previous version but has security-focused features. Chrome 67 for desktop has added web authentications which will allow sites to use fingerprint or a Bluetooth key as the sole login method. This API is now enabled by default on Android. From now when you visit a site that supports web authentication Chrome will prompt you to use a security key. Google says that fingerprints will also work. Though there are many ways for web pages to read barcodes, or identify faces with the help of machine learning, since they have an effect on performance, Google is adding its own shape detection functionality to Chrome. The Shape Detection API is present in Chrome 70 as an "origin trial," meaning it's not ready for widespread use. The API can detect three types of objects in images; faces, barcodes, and text. However, for now, compatibility varies from platform to platform, because this requires the host operating system to have the proper object detection APIs. Furthermore, the Transport Layer Security, or TLS, is the protocol that allows data to be transferred over the internet securely. Chrome 70 includes support for version 1.3 ...

    It is a known fact that Google is said to be working on a censored search engine in China. Now according to a new report, the company has built a prototype of a censored search engine for China linking users’ searches to their personal phone numbers, making it easier for the Chinese government to monitor people’s queries. The search engine is codenamed Dragonfly. It is designed for Android devices and would remove content deemed sensitive by China’s ruling Communist Party regime, such as information about political dissidents, free speech, democracy, human rights, and peaceful protest. Google compiled a censorship blacklist that included terms such as “human rights,” “student protest,” and “Nobel Prize” in Mandarin. Concerns from groups say that beyond the censorship, user data stored by Google on the Chinese mainland could be accessible to Chinese authorities, who routinely target political activists and journalists. The search engine would be operated as part of a “joint venture” partnership with a company based in mainland China. Furthermore, the venture would have the ability to update the search term blacklists. This raises new questions about whether Google executives in the U.S. would be able to maintain effective control and oversight over the censorship. That doesn't end here, a list of seven employees said to have quit ...
