Android 11 Developer Preview 4 Released, Beta Updates Delayed

25th February 2021
"The Beta Launch Show’ on June 3 to introduce new features for Android 11."

Android 11 beta release has been delayed to next month. Google has released the Android 11 Developer Preview 4, and has updated its rollout roadmap to announce that the beta updates have been postponed. The first Android beta update will be released in June, instead of the planned May release. Google is hosting an event called ‘Android 11: The Beta Launch Show' on June 3 to introduce new features for Android 11. The event will begin at 11 am ET (8.45 pm NST) and will be held online. It will detail all the new features and tweaks coming with the next big software update.

With Google I/O cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the company is looking to host this online show to introduce the Android 11 to the world. The ‘Android 11: The Beta Show' trailer has been released, and apart from outlining the software update, Google has teased that it will introduce a ‘host of other things' as well. On June 3, Google will unveil Android 11 features related to connectivity, control, safety, security, productivity, and accessibility.

As mentioned, the ‘Android 11: The Beta Launch Show' will begin at 11 am ET (8.45 pm NST) and end at 12 pm ET (9.45 pm NST). This one-hour event will also include a Q&A session with Google's Android VP, Engineering, Dave Burke and Senior Director of Product Management, Stephanie Cuthbertson. To ask questions during this session, users can tweet their queries with the hashtag #AskAndroid.

While the trailer mostly talks about Android 11 beta release, it also hints at an upcoming phone launch alongside, and if we were to speculate, it could be the mid-year Pixel 4a. The video trailer suggests that the event will see the launch other things as well, and then shows a picture of a phone on a newspaper cutting. 

Google has also dropped the fourth Android 11 developer preview for Pixel phones. Google was meant to end its developer preview releases in April and start with beta releases in May, but that has been now been postponed. The tech giant has delayed the launch of Android 11 beta updates to June. The first Android 11 beta is now slated to roll out on June 3, soon after the launch. The Android 11 Beta 2 is listed to now launch in July, while the Android 11 Beta 3 will be released in August. Google pegs the final release of Android 11 to be sometime in Q3 2020.

The Android 11 Developer Preview 4 is an incremental update for stability and performance to help developers plan final testing and releases. Pixel phone users on the Developer Preview 3 will receive Android 11 Developer Preview 4 over-the-air (OTA). The builds for all Pixel phones are also listed on the download page. Because this is an early build, it may be prone to several bugs.

Apple Releases iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1

27th February 2021
"Apple has released iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1 to all supported devices."

Today Apple has released iOS 13.6.1 and iPadOS 13.6.1 to all supported devices. As the small increment in versioning implies, this build is all about fixing issues, and doesn't bring any new features to the table. Still, that doesn't mean you shouldn't install the update as soon as possible.

After all, it promises to get rid of green tint on some displays, which was caused by a thermal management issue, apparently. It also fixes an issue which disabled Exposure Notifications for some users.

Additionally, an issue that prevented unneeded system data files from being automatically deleted when storage got low has been addressed, which should be especially useful for owners of older iPhones and iPads with not a lot of storage space available to begin with.

The iOS 13.6.1 update is a 110MB download, and should be ready for install right away if you check for it through Settings > General > Software Update. You may have already been notified about it.

This is likely to be among the last updates to iOS 13, seeing as how iOS 14 is due to be released this fall - and probably as soon as next month, if we go by Apple's timelines in years past.
