Shiny Pokemon GO event today: Cranidos, Shieldon, Dialga, Porygon

Starting today, the 23rd of July, 2021, Pokemon GO has an event running courtesy of the Ultra Unlock series during Pokemon GO Fest 2021. The first event is Ultra Unlock Part 1: Time, and it runs from today until August 3, 2021, at 8PM local time. The idea here is that Pokemon from what appear to be "various eras" will pop up in the wild, in raid battles, and in 7km eggs. That means we've got everything from Omanyte (ancient, very old), to Porygon (super futuristic).

iPadOS 14.7 released a day after iOS: What’s new?

The iPad version of the "14.7" update post-Beta was released today, right around a day after its iOS equivalent. The software operating systems known as iOS and iPadOS are different, each of them different based on their intended device family, so it shouldn't seem unreasonable that they wouldn't always be released at the same time. But given the release schedule of iOS and iPadOS versions so far, and the fact that they have the same software version number, it's odd to see their release dates differ.

Android 12 emoji updates fix some obvious pain points

Google made a set of emoji ready for all platforms in their collection, including but not limited to apps like Gmail and YouTube, as well as operating systems like Android and Chrome OS.
