Android 10 and the 3 ways for your phone to get it

Over the past 24 hours (or so) Google's released Android 10 in multiple formats for download. Users can access this system the standard way, downloading a software update to their phone through their Settings screen.

Gmail on iPhones, iPads finally lets you block images in emails

Gmail on iPhones, iPads finally lets you block images in emails

iOS isn't Google's preferred mobile platform but, in order to keep users from going outside of its ecosystem, it naturally has to play ball.

That may make sense on YouTube and on Google searches but now the tech giant will be bringing that capability to an almost unexpected avenue: videos on listings in the Google Play Store starting this month.

Huawei Mate 30 launch announced, Google Play fate still unknown

Everyone's getting ready for IFA 2019 that's set to commence in less than a week. But as has been the trend in the recent years, the big players have mostly shied away from making their most important announcements at that event. Samsung, for example, already launched the Galaxy Note 10 series last month. Huawei, in contrast, is apparently preferring to put its own event once the IFA dust has settled.
