Galaxy S10 updates with fancy Note 10 camera features

This morning Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 users both got a software upgrade to their camera. The upgrade comes via the official Camera app for Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus - which is weird.

Windows 10 20H1 will make the Bluetooth pairing process faster

Microsoft already made it know not to expect big new features in the Windows 10 update later this year. That will be focused on polishing the user experience and fixing bugs.

Windows 10 updates continue giving users headaches

Windows 10 updates continue giving users headaches

Things don't look to good for a company that's supposedly cleaning up its update act. Microsoft has stated that it's taking a break from making big feature changes this year to give way to fixing bugs and polishing features.

Windows 10 May 2020 will carry a better Cortana experience for more users

Currently dubbed the 19H2 update based on when it's expected to roll out, the next Windows 10 feature release will be a more somber affair, focusing on polish and stability to address the growing number of complaints users have about the OS. That does also means that next year's first major release, a.k.a.

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. That'll work so long as they've got one of the few phones that work with the update thus far.
