Apple To Add RCS Support To iPhones In Next Year

Published

on


With the intention of bringing iPhones into line with the majority of Android devices, Apple has revealed that it intends to incorporate support for the RCS (Rich Communication Services) messaging standard. According to a statement from an Apple representative that 9to5Mac obtained, RCS (Rich Communication Services) compatibility for the iPhone will start rolling out next year. The assertion is that, subsequent to the existing GSM Association standard, Apple plans to incorporate support for RCS Universal Profile. It was also reported that the corporation claimed that the new technology would be more compatible than SMS or MMS and that it would function in tandem with iMessage.

Authorities and rivals like Samsung and Google are putting pressure on Apple to make this decision. It also coincides with the growing maturity of RCS as a platform. Several iMessage-style features, including read receipts and typing indications, will be added to communications between iPhone and Android users with the RCS functionality, which will be available as a software update for iPhone models. The updated protocol will also allow users to send and receive high-resolution images and movies between Android and iPhone devices. Apple promises to collaborate with GSMA members to find ways to enhance the RCS protocols even further.

Google’s Open Approach to Android Market Prioritized Growth Over Profits

Apple stated that it will not add any kind of proprietary end-to-end encryption to RCS. Its main objective is to make the RCS standard better. Also, Apple has confirmed that users will be able to exchange locations within a text thread. The firm also disclosed the fact that iMessage would not be available on Android-based systems. RCS operates via mobile data and Wi-Fi, in contrast to SMS. But Apple stated again that iMessage employs Advanced Data Protection, which provides a more sophisticated end-to-end encryption than RCS.

Additionally, Apple stated that green bubbles will stand in for RCS communications, while blue bubbles will continue to represent iMessages. On the other hand, Samsung offers RCS functionality for all of its current phone models via the Samsung Messages and Google Messages applications.

In reference to Apple’s move, Google opened up, Everyone deserves to communicate with each other in ways that are modern and secure, no matter what phone they have. That’s why we have worked closely with the mobile industry to accelerate the adoption of RCS, and we’re happy to see Apple take their first step today by coming on board to embrace RCS. We welcome Apple’s participation in our ongoing work with GSMA to evolve RCS and make messaging more equitable and secure, and we look forward to working with them to implement this on iOS in a way that works well for everyone.”

Samsung appears close to introducing its sixth-generation foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Galaxy Z Fold 6, in July at the Galaxy Unpacked Event. Now the Galaxy Z Fold 6 is spotted on the Geekbench database. Let’s take a closer look at the detailed information. 

Although the Galaxy Z Flip 6 is already spotted on the Geekbench database, Now, luckily, in development, its sibling’s forthcoming Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 smartphone appeared on the Geekbench 6.3.0 benchmark database with the model number SM-F956U. 

The last letter ‘U’ in the model number points to the fact that this mode refers to a variant for the US market. It scored 1,964 points in the single-core round of the test and 6,619 points in the multi-core round. The listing reveals the existence of an octa-core processor with the codename pineapple, a 1+3+2+2 core configuration, and an Adreno 750 GPU. Apart from these, one chief core is clocked at 3.40 GHz, and the remaining three performance cores are at 3.15 GHz. 

This points out that Samsung could power the forthcoming Galaxy foldable with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3processor. The Geekbench database suggests that the Galaxy Z Fold 6 will arrive with 12GB of RAM and Android 14. However, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 already appeared on the 3C certification website, which suggested support for 25W fast charging, and now it is expected that this device will also visit other certification websites soon.

Samsung Prioritizes Faster Charging in 2024 Smartphones

Published

By


The first quarter of 2024 is already over; during this interval, Samsung has introduced several Galaxy smartphones of particular belonging, such as the flagship Galaxy S24 series, the Galaxy A55 and Galaxy A35, the mid-range ones, the Galaxy A15 and Galaxy F15, the budgetable ones, and many more. But the fact is, after being the latest smartphones, they have a lack of ‘charging speed.’ 

Undoubtedly, Samsung is leading the tech industry with its top-notch features, design, and larger batteries, as compared to other Android manufacturers, but despite all this, it has a massive lack of charging speed. Samsung usually attaches larger batteries to its Galaxy smartphones to enhance the users’ non-stop-using experience. But a larger battery isn’t worth it unless it has a good charging speed. 

On the other hand, Chinese manufacturers are equipping their smartphones with charging speeds north of 100W, whereas 45W is the maximum speed you can get on Galaxy smartphones. However, even 45W charging is quite rare among Galaxy phones. Samsung has launched most of the Galaxy devices in the last couple of years, including the flagship with support for 25W. 

Here we are making things easy for you if you are looking to buy a Galaxy smartphone that debuted in 2024 with the support of 45W charging speed by mentioning a list of devices: 


The list is quite short, even considering that the Galaxy F55, M55, and C55 are just rebranded variants of the same smartphone for different regions. Now Samsung is setting up to launch its next-generation foldable devices, the Galaxy Z Fold 6 and Galaxy Z Flip 6, in July, but it is yet to be confirmed whether these devices will get a boost in charging speeds from 25W or not.
