Samsung cutting back, Apple’s "always on" display and Snapchat shared memories
There’s word that Samsung may be cutting way back on production. A new report from South Korea claims the world’s leading smartphone maker plans to decrease output this year by 30-million units. Pandemic related slumping sales and supply chain shortages are partially to blame.
The next iPhone is expected to come with an "always-on" display mode. It may rely on the same technology used in newer Apple Watches, allowing low-powered screens to display limited information, even when locked.
And Snapchat is rolling out a new feature making it easier for users to share memories. With the new "shared stories" feature users included in the group can add their friends as well. As with all Snapchat stories, "memories" are automatically deleted after 24 hours.
