The Samsung Galaxy S21 may feature a voice unlock option using Bixby

If past Samsung launches are anything to go by, then we should be seeing the Galaxy S21 debut within the next few months. As the release date approaches, we are continuing to learn more and more about Samsung’s upcoming flagship. For example, last week we learned that the S21 Ultra will get support for the S Pen and the Note series may be discontinued.Now, a new tidbit leaked out about Samsung adding a feature to unlock the phone using a Bixby biometric voice option. The news comes from SamMobile and it’s rather sparse on the details, except that it is expected to be included in Samsung’s latest version of One UI. For the uninitiated, One UI is the name of Samsung’s software skin over Android, and the Galaxy S21 is expected to launch with version 3.1.That would make the Galaxy S21 the first phone to run One UI 3.1, and it also means that the voice unlock feature could later come to other Samsung phones after they receive the software update.Samsung has toyed with utilizing this feature in the past with Bixby having options to wake up your device and take commands. There was even a way to set a voice password, however, both of these are no longer available in Bixby. Perhaps the feature was pulled over security concerns, if so, I hope Samsung has made some improvements.There is a lot of questions surrounding the new Bixby biometric voice option. We still don’t know when it will launch, if other phones will get it, how secure it will be, if it will work with a face mask, and so on. However, we do know that it will be on the Galaxy S21 for starters and it’s possible it could trickle down to more devices with the One UI 3.1 update.

iOS application development for businesses: A step towards the future

Since the advent of the Internet, there have emerged explicit advancements in the technological arena. People all over the globe are developing a sort of dependency on various innovations in their daily lives. The mobile phone is one such creation. In conjunction with Internet resources, smartphones have become somewhat of an everyday necessity. In the current day and age, we use apps to shop, study, protect our homes and assets, and travel. This has brought about the necessity for businesses to embrace the mobile app trend to stay afloat in the industry.Millions of people globally currently use iOS supported devices such as iPhones, iPads, and iPods. Users for its customer-oriented apps prefer the operating system model from Apple Inc. To take advantage of this market opportunity and consumer trend, you can consider developing an iOS app to reach the target audience within the iOS pool. However, before we delve into the fundamentals of iOS app development to boost your enterprise, let’s first understand what this operating system is and how you can utilize it to benefit your company.So, What is iOS?iOS is an operating system that was designed and developed by Apple Inc. It is the second most widely installed mobile operating system globally, falling slightly short of the Android OS. Application development based on iOS technology is utilized worldwide as a viable strategy to expand businesses and grow brands. More and more people are outsourcing solutions from custom app developers in Los Angeles to create apps made available to the public through the Apple App Store. But why is this? Read on to find out why.iOS App DevelopmentIn recent years, there has been an exponential increase in the prevalent use of iOS supported smartphones. Therefore, the value of mobile phone apps can no longer be overlooked.The development of mobile apps on iOS is enabled by the iOS SDK (Software Development Kit), which comes in multiple types. Each offers different and unique capabilities, functionalities, and tools to make each one compatible with a specific hardware platform and operating system.There exist two main categories in the iOS app development landscape. Differences arise in the basic concept of development and development tools.Native iOS app developmentNative iOS applications are written and run using development tools and programming languages like Xcode. Mac OS X is the only operating system that is supported to develop a native iOS app. Some development tools can be obtained free of charge; you may have to pay for others. They each come with step-by-step guidelines for developers that advise on the development process from coding to creating the storyboard and installing view and navigation controls to develop a native iOS application.Hybrid iOS app developmentApps created under the umbrella of the hybrid iOS technology blend elements of native apps and various web applications like JavaScript and HTML. Hybrid application developers create apps by writing code in one programming language for use in multiple mobile platforms.Hybrid vs. Native Apps: Which Is Better For Businesses?Native apps provide exceptional performance, data protection and are easy to understand. A significant downside is that developers use a distributed codebase to write, which require frequent maintenance. In the long run, this consumes more time and funds.On the other hand, hybrid apps are written on a single code. They are easier to maintain in the long run. The short development times enables one to create multiple apps within the same timeframe. Additionally, they guarantee consistency with the same user interface (UI) across platforms. However, hybrid apps have bounded efficiency and require a steady internet connection at all times.Tip For ThoughtWhether you opt for a native or hybrid app, ensure you choose the technology that best suits your business’s development goals. Always have your audience in mind. After all, they are the main reason behind the app’s development. A viable plan that lays out the whole iOS mobile app development process will help you create, validate, and launch your company’s app with success.EDITOR NOTE: This is a promoted post and should not be viewed as an editorial endorsement.

Microsoft is working on a way to run Android apps on Windows computers

Ever since Microsoft threw in the towel with Windows Phone, it has been busy trying to gain a foothold with Android. Over the years, we’ve seen the tech giant release apps for the platform, as well as purchasing some of the most popular Android apps such as Swiftkey.More recently, we’ve seen Microsoft work on ways to integrate Android into Windows with its Your Phone app. By using the app on your computer and Android phone, it allows you to mirror what’s on the screen, make and receive calls, run apps, and transfer files.Now, it seems Microsoft is ready to take it a step further by adding support for Android apps on your Windows PC with Project Latte. That doesn’t mean you’ll be able to fire up the Play Store on your Windows machine and install apps or grab APK files and run them on your computer.Developers will have to do some work to make the apps compatible, but Microsoft is trying to make it as easy as possible by using an Android layer running over the top of the Windows Subsystem for Linux. In theory, this should make it easier for developers to add Windows support to their Android apps. Afterward, the app will need to be submitted to the Microsoft Store where you’ll be able to download and install it on your Windows PC.Considering the apps will be running on hardware that hasn’t been certified by Google, there won’t be any support for apps that rely on Google Play Services. So don’t expect to run any Google apps, and developers will have to spend time removing any Google Play Service dependencies.I’d caution you over getting too excited though. If you’ve ever used Android apps on a Chromebook before, then you know the experience is lacking. I’ve run into issues with apps refusing to work, crashes, and features that are downright broken. If Google can’t get Android apps to run properly on its own OS, then support on Windows could be even worse.At this time, Project Latte is expected to launch in the fall of 2021. Of course, that’s just a projected date, and software development is rather infamous for its delays. However, that’s generally for the best, because it gives developers time to ensure the software works properly, or at the very least, squash some bugs before release.
