Apple angered the developers. The apple brand has announced that it is modifying the rules of the App Store. Thus, an application becomes obsolete if it has not been updated for three years and if it has not reached a certain number of downloads. Apple explains that this decision is motivated by a goal of improving the store. A policy which is not new, but which is becoming more restrictive and worries developers, particularly independent ones. However, they will be notified by the Cupertino company and will have 90 days to perform an update, compared to 30 days previously. Over the past six years, Apple has removed more than 2.8 million apps from its store.
Meta continues its turn. Facebook’s parent company is betting heavily on the metaverse and is about to launch a new virtual reality headset. A premium device that could sell for well over $1000. It will also provide an augmented reality experience through external cameras. Finally, the machine will be able to follow your eyes and facial movements thanks to a battery of sensors. In addition to virtual reality, it is also possible to enjoy augmented reality. And… a virtual office, because this headset will not necessarily be dedicated to entertainment, but to professional life.
