Android 9 Pie is here so when will your Android phone get it? Here are some dates

Chances are that your Android phone will not get the Android 9 Pie. The state of Android version updates continues to be a mess and Android p doesn’t change it. But at the same time, there are certain Android users who will get to taste the Pie on their existing phones. Yes, the numbers of these users isn’t relatively high. But they exist and you are one of them if you happen to use any of the following phones.

Image result for Android 9 Pie is here so when will your Android phone get it? Here are some dates

If you have a Pixel phone: If you have a Google Pixel phone – either first generation or the second generation – your phone will get the Android 9 Pie update in the coming days. Chances are that if you have the Google Pixel 2 XL, you will get it either today or in another day or two. If you have the Pixel 2, then too you should expect the Android 9 Pie on your phone this week. The users of Pixel and and the Pixel XL, the phones launched in 2016, should get the Android 9 Pie in a week or two.

If you have the Essential phone: This was never launched in India, this Essential phone made by company started by Android creator Andy Rubin. But if by any chance you happen to own the Essential phone, you must have already got the Android 9 Pie. The Essential was part of the Android P beta programme and once Google released the final version of the Android 9 Pie, Essential too pushed it out to its users.

If you have the OnePlus 6: Given how quickly Essential has rolled out the Android 9 Pie – same day when it was launched by Google – we will not be surprised if the Android 9 Pie lands up on OnePlus 6 within a month. Unlike the Essential phone, the OnePlus 6 probably requires a bit of work on its android and hence OnePlus 6 engineers may take a few weeks to finalise the Android 9 Pie update. But OnePlus 6 was also part of the Android P beta programme so expect to see the Android 9 Pie on its very soon. Officially Google says that Android 9 Pie should come on the OnePlus 6 by the end of November 30 but that date is Google and OnePlus playing safe. We expect it to come sooner.

If you have Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 8 Sirocco: These are Android One phones and they were also part of the Android P beta programme. The date for these three Nokia phones is also the end of Fall, which is end of November 30. But again. expect to see Android 9 Pie on these phones sooner, probably with a month or two from now.

Other phones that will get Android 9 Pie fast: By fast here we mean within couple of months or so. There were some there phones part of the Android P beta programme. Oppo R15 was there and so was the Vivo X21, which is available in India. Same for the Sony Xperia XZ2, which too recently went on sale in India. These phones too hope to get Android 9 Pie update by December.

If you have a high-end Samsung phone: No Samsung phone was part of the Android P beta programme but Samsung usually brings the Android version update to its latest and greatest fairly fast. This means you can expect the Android 9 Pie, of course modified by Samsung with its own user interface and features, on Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9 Plus, the Galaxy Note 9 – launching on August 9 – by the end of this year.

If you have an Android One phone: Select Android One phones will also get the Android 9 Pie update, and that too possibly by the end of this year. For example, Xiaomi is already on record saying that the Mi A1 will get the Android 9 Pie update. And if Mi A1 will get it, then the Mi A2 that launches on August 8 in India will definitely get it. Some of the new Nokia Android One phones will also get the Android 9 pie update.

If you have OnePlus 5T and OnePlus 5: The Android P beta is already available for these phones directly from OnePlus, and chances are that a month or so after the OnePlus 6 gets the Android 9 Pie, the OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 5 will also get it. This means expect the Android 9 Key on these two phones by the end of this year.

What about the rest: The rest will most likely remain stuck on whatever version of Android they have right now. And even if Android 9 Pie comes to these millions of phones, it will come very late. As we said in the beginning, the state of Android updates is a mess.

Jio Giving Users Free 2GB Data per Day With New Jio Digital Pack

Reliance Jio, the newest operator in the Indian telecom scene, has released a new add-on pack for its prepaid subscribers that gives 2GB of additional daily 4G data over and above the existing Jio pack that the user has subscribed to. Visible in the MyJio app automatically, this add-on pack is currently rolling out for select subscribers, eligibility for which is currently unknown. Also, the Jio digital pack does not come with any additional calling or SMS benefits, which will remain same as the one offered in the existing base pack. A Jio representative confirmed to Gadgets 360 that add-on is valid only until July 31, 2018.

With the Digital Pack active, if a Jio user is availing the Rs. 399 prepaid pack which offers 1.5GB 4G data per day, for 84 days, then the they will get a total of 3.5GB 4G data per day. However, considering the validity of the pack is only up to July 31, it is rendered mostly unusable. Comments on a report by Telecom Talk however say that the pack will expire on August 2 for some users, not July 31.

Earlier this month, Reliance Jio rolled out its Jio Phone Monsoon Hungama offer as part of which users can exchange their existing features phones and purchase the Jio Phone at a price of just Rs. 501, which is also a full refundable security deposit. However, six months worth recharge of the custom Rs. 99 prepaid pack is required to avail this deal. The exchange offer, thus, mandates a payment of Rs. 1,095 (Rs. 501 + Rs. 594) to be able to purchase the Jio Phone. To recall, the new Rs. 99 Jio Phone recharge comes with 0.5GB 4G data per day, unlimited voice calls, and 300 SMS messages, with a validity of 28 days.

Apple offers free repair of its devices for flood-hit Japanese users

TOKYO: Apple will help the flood-affected Japanese people by undertaking free repair of iPhones, iPads, iPods, Mac computers, Apple Watches and Apple’s displays damaged in the torrential rains that hit the western part of the country earlier this month.

If the gadgets were impaired directly by the rain disasters and still fixable, individual users can apply for the free service, The Japan Times reported on Monday.

The Cupertino, California-headquartered tech giant plans to accept requests for free repair of its products until the end of September.

The offer is only for individual users, not for companies or stores using Apple devices for their businesses.

The users also must be residents of municipalities being supported by the central government under the Disaster Relief Act, the report said.

The torrential rain in western Japan caused disasters including floods and mudslides and killed at least 224 people, according to Kyodo News.

Thousands of people were still being evacuated as of last week.

OnePlus 3, 3T get final OxygenOS open beta build, improves app drawer and camera app

Last month, OnePlus confirmed that both the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T will get their last open beta build update in the first week of July. OnePlus is living up to its words. Starting today, OnePlus is pushing the final open beta builds for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T. For the OnePlus 3, this is the Open Beta 39, while for the 3T its Beta 30. The stable build of the software update will be rolled out by the end of this month.

It is important to note this is a beta update and hence may not be as stable as the official OTA update. “Please keep in mind that this is beta software. These builds are sometimes not as stable as our official OTAs generally are. By installing this update, you accept the potential risks,” OnePlus noted in a blogpost.

According to OnePlus, the latest open beta builds bring significant changes to the app drawer, camera app, and audio setup of both the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T. The update brings improvement to the search tags of the app drawer. It also brings adds “New installs” category tag in the app drawer and improves app list for hidden space and toolbox.

In addition, the new OxygenOS update optimizes switching between front and rear camera. This means, with the new update, it will be easy for users to switch between the back and selfie camera, unlike before. The transition between the cameras will be smooth now.

The software update also adds the capability to scrub/seek through AAC audio file timelines, OnePlus said.

OnePlus 3 and 3T users who have their phones running on the latest Open Beta will receive the software update automatically via an OTA. While users who are not in beta can download the full ROM from here. Before downloading the ROM, ensure to wipe full data before updating from stable to open beta. “Once you migrate to the Beta path, you will continue to receive Open Beta OTAs. You will no longer receive the regular Official Stable OTAs.”

“Please note that this is the last open beta for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, we will provide a stable version of OnePlus 3/3T for beta testers to migrate back to stable version of OxygenOS later this month to ensure beta testers will receive regular Android security patch update and so on,” said Manu J, Staff Member, Beta Program and Dev Relations of OnePlus.

BSNL offers ‘most economic’ broadband plan with 20GB data per day at Rs 491

The state-owned telecommunication company, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL), took to Twitter to roll out the self-professed ‘most economic broadband’ plan in the country at Rs 491. It will offer 20GB data per day for 30 days at 20 Mbps. Subscribers will also gain access to unlimited voice calls to any network. NK Mehta, a member on BSNL’s board, said, “BSNL is committed to offer high quality, most affordable and data services which meets everyone’s expectations.” BSNL’s plan 491 is already available across their customer service centers, franchises, and retailers.

Addressing Reliance Industries 41st Annual General Meeting, today, Isha Ambani, daughter of Mukesh Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Industries, announced the launch of Jio GigaFiber, its optical fiber-based broadband service. It will be rolled out in 1,100 cities of India on 15th August and will provide broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps.

Since the introduction of Reliance Jio two years ago, the nation has witnessed an ongoing tariff war between major mobile carriers. Idea and Vodafone have also initiated a merger to take on the competition from incumbents. Now, with Jio entering the broadband space, the war might shift from mobile to broadband segment; and BSNL, with its latest offerings, might possibly be playing a forehand to stay ahead in the game.

 In June, BSNL introduced two new FTTH (Fiber to the Home) plans at Rs 777 and Rs 1,277. The Rs 777 plan offers 500 GB monthly data at 50 Mbps, while the Rs 1277 plan offers 750 GB monthly data at 100 Mbps.

Despite BSNL and Bharti Airtel being the current leaders in India’s broadband market, they face angst about their customers switching to JioGigaFiber once it is made commercially available. This might not be an unjust supposition, given Jio’s track record of disrupting markets.

Apple is making some changes to how passwords work with the release of iOS 12, offering new capabilities that make it easier to create and use strong passwords, help you make sure that your passwords are unique, and even giving a helping hand that will make third-party password managers like 1Password and LastPass better able to integrate with the system.

The changes coming to how passwords are handled in iOS are meant to make your digital life more secure and more convenient. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect.

Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac (sadly, no public beta for the Apple Watch). While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That’s why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final release.

  • Automatic strong passwords
  • Password reuse auditing
  • Security code AutoFill
  • Password sharing
  • Password Manager API

Automatic strong passwords

Apple has offered strong, automatic password suggestions in iOS for some time now, generating suggestions when users created new login credentials in Safari. iOS 12 takes it a step further. Instead of just suggesting a strong password, iOS will create a password, then present you with two options: use Apple’s password or create your own. If you choose to use Apple’s, the password created by iOS is automatically stored securely in iCloud Keychain and synced across your devices without you ever having to see it. These passwords will be filled automatically when logging into the corresponding service. The goal is to make strong password creation simple and secure.

What’s more, iOS will be able to do this outside of Safari, too. When you sign up for an account within an app in iOS 12, the same password creation process will present itself there, as well. Developers will be able to customize this process to an extent. If their app or service has certain password requirements (excluding particular symbols, including both a number and a capital letter, etc.), developers can tell iOS, and those requirements will be taken into account when the system generates the strong password.

If you ever need to get to one of these passwords, you can always ask Siri. But don’t worry, Siri won’t go blurting your password out. You’ll need to authenticate with your device, and then you’ll be taken to your password list, which you would normally find under Settings > Passwords & Accounts > Website & App Passwords.

Password reuse auditing

Building on the theme of better user security, iOS will also warn you if you reuse a password across multiple websites and apps. You can find and edit the offending login credentials like this:

  1. Open Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap Passwords & Accounts.
  3. Scroll through your passwords and tap on one with a triangular warning symbol.
  4. Tap Change Password on Website to be taken to the relevant website to change your credentials.

Security code AutoFill

SMS is a popular way for companies to deliver one-time codes to users that have two-step verification turned on for logging into their accounts. While currently, you might need to flip between the Messages app and the app to which you’re logging in in order to get that code, iOS 12 lets you stay where you are. When you receive an authentication code in a text message, iOS will find it automatically and place it in the QuickType bar of the keyboard, just as though you were getting a suggestion for a word to type.

Password sharing

With iOS 12, macOS Mojave, and tvOS 12, you’ll be able to share passwords with you nearby Apple devices. This is especially useful with the Apple TV, which doesn’t have access to iCloud Keychain like iPhones, iPads, and Macs do. When logging into an app, you’ll receive a notification on your iPhone or iPad from your Apple TV, which you can tap to bring up a password entry field. Your iOS device’s QuickType keyboard will then offer to let you AutoFill your login credentials on your Apple TV, for instance, with just a tap. It works like this:

  1. Open your app on Apple TV.
  2. Select the email address field on the login page.
  3. Tap the Keyboard and Password AutoFill notification on your iPhone or iPad.
  4. Tap the credentials that pop up on the QuickType keyboard bar.
  5. Tap the key icon on the QuickType keyboard bar if the credentials didn’t pop up on their own.
  6. Search for the relevant login information.
  7. Tap the login information that you want to use. Your username/email address and password will then populate the correct fields on your Apple TV app.
  8. Select the Login or equivalent button on your Apple TV.

This is made possible by one of the coolest little tricks I’ve seen from Apple in recent memory. With tvOS 12, the Siri Remote that comes with the 4th-generation Apple TV and the Apple TV 4K can act as a locator, finding nearby iOS devices on which to offer an AutoFill request. Because it’s proximity-based, you shouldn’t get these requests on all of you devices, just those that are closest to your remote.

Password Manager API

This is pretty cool. While iCloud Keychain is great for many, some people, myself included, prefer third-party password managers like 1Password and LastPass. And with iOS 12, Apple is making it easier to use those apps by providing a new Password AutoFill extension. With this extension, developers will be able to offer their stored login credentials in the QuickType bar on the iOS keyboard in both Safari and third-party apps, just like Apple does now with iCloud keychain when you’re logging in somewhere.

So instead of having to tap the share button, tap the 1Password extension button, authenticate, and tap on or find the relevant login credentials in order to use 1Password, I should just be able to tap once on my credentials that appear right above the keyboard, just as though they were a part of the system on my iPhone or iPad.

New Gmail launches for everyone in July

The big Gmail redesign is slated to arrive for everyone next month, Google announced Monday.

At this point the new Gmail, which Google first unveiled in April, is an Early Adopter Program. If you’re interested in checking it out before July’s general availability launch, just head over to Gmail on your computer, click Settings in the top right corner, then select “Try the new Gmail.” If you change your mind, you can click Settings, then “Go back to classic Gmail.”

“Approximately eight weeks after the GA announcement in July, any users who haven’t yet been transitioned to the new Gmail will be automatically migrated to the new experience,” Google wrote in a blog post. “They’ll have the option to opt out of the new Gmail for an additional four weeks.”

Twelve weeks after the general availability rollout (so at some point in October), Google will remove the opt-out option. At that time, “any users who’ve opted out of the new Gmail will be automatically migrated to the new experience, with no option to opt out,” the Web giant said. Meanwhile, those who have already transitioned to the new Gmail will no longer be able to opt out.

The new Gmail, perhaps most notably, features confidential mode, which lets you set an expiration date on your email, so it disappears after a certain amount of time and the recipient sees an “email has expired” message instead.

The redesigned interface lets you hover over a message in your inbox to quickly archive, delete, mark it as read, or snooze it for a set amount of time. An artificial intelligence-powered “nudging” feature can help you manage your email by suggesting you respond to a message that’s been sitting in your inbox for a few days. Plus, Google also bolstered Gmail’s offline capabilities, letting you search, write, respond, delete, or archive up to 90 days of messages without an active connection.
