Apple and Google panic! U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee approves antitrust bill

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee approved an antitrust bill targeting tech giants on Thursday, bringing the bill one step closer to consideration by the full Senate.

The bill, co-sponsored by Minnesota Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar and Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, passed the committee 16-6 to protect digital Competition, which would prohibit tech giants from offering an advantage to their own products, services or lines of business on their platforms, would directly affect related businesses of Apple, Google, Amazon and Meta.
The act came about because these tech giants often use their dominant position on the Internet to enhance their competitiveness. Some smaller technology companies are dissatisfied with this. They believe that these giants with large platforms use unfair business practices to maintain their dominant position, which is not conducive to orderly competition in the market and is suspected of being a monopoly.

In response to this bill, the above-mentioned technology giants will naturally not sit still. Apple has warned relevant lawmakers in a letter that once the bill is passed, Apple will have to open the App Store to third parties, which will pose a potential threat to the privacy and security of Apple users. Not long ago, Apple CEO Tim Cook and Google CEO Sundar Pichai were personally involved in lobbying senators who claimed the bill would harm American innovation and ultimately consumers.

Apple will stop iOS 14 security updates in response to low iOS 15 update rate

We have previously reported that after the official release of iOS 15, Apple still retains the security updates for iOS 14, which means that if users are unwilling to use the new iOS 15, they can continue to use iOS 14 and get normal security. Guaranteed, but not using some new features or meaningless updates. However, judging from the recent news, it may not be very friendly to this part of the “system nail households”.

Apple said today that the company will stop security updates related to iOS 14. If users choose to continue to use iOS 14, there may be risks of use. Apple hopes that users will update to iOS 15 as soon as possible. Apple had previously issued a statement in September last year, saying that it would allow iOS 14 users to “continue to use it for a period of time”, which now seems to be about four months to expire.
It can be known that since the update rate of iOS 15 is much lower than expected, it has dropped a lot from iOS 13 to iOS 14. Apple doesn’t have much to do about this. They believe that the main reason is that because iOS 14 still has version updates, it is a good idea to stop security updates to the system to prompt users to update as soon as possible.
The current update rate of iOS 15 is only 72%, which is much lower than the adoption rate of previous iOS versions, so it is inevitable for Apple to terminate the update of iOS 14, but for users, it may be a loss of some control over their own devices.

The words “50MP” in the camera area indicate that the phone’s main camera has 50 million pixels. On the front of the phone, the machine is equipped with a water drop screen, the three borders are narrow, and the lower border is not flattering. In addition, the front camera of this phone has a large “footprint”, which is very eye-catching and hard to ignore.

The appearance of the TCL 30+ is not much different from the TCL 30. It is also a rear-mounted three-camera with a “big-eyed cute” design. The main camera has a pixel of 50 million. The front is also designed with a water drop screen, and the lower frame is wider. Both phones are equipped with side fingerprint unlocking, which reflects that the positioning may not be very high.
Apart from the appearance, there is currently no more information on the TCL 30 and TCL 30+ phones online. But now that there have been leaks about the two new phones, it is believed that the two phones should be released soon.
