HTC U12+ is finally getting Android 9 Pie a year later

It used to be that having a close relationship with Google had perks when it comes to getting dibs on Android releases. That obviously isn't the case anymore if HTC is any indication.

Windows 10 Preview can automatically restart some apps at startup

Computers today are super powerful and yet at times they can also be frustratingly simple-minded. Truth be told, you really need to tell them what to do or, at the very least, have software that lets you do so. Sometimes even something as simple as starting up the same apps after you restart the computer is something that doesn't come naturally to some operating systems. Actually just one operating system. Thankfully, it seems that Windows 10 is finally catching up with that in next year's major update.

That isn't HMD Global's main market anyway but it still has at least one, maybe even two, Nokia phones that could try to make a case for flagships. The Nokia 7.2 was at least rumored to have a new design and even three cameras, both of which have now been confirmed by an unexpected source.

Your Titanium Apple Card might need a screen protector

Your Titanium Apple Card might need a screen protector

But also unlike most in the credit card market, its focus on privacy and simplicity is reflected in the card's nondescript exterior. That plain white design, however, may have come at the price of longevity and reliability, requiring a lot of care to keep it looking pristine and clean.
