iPhone Feature Request: Copy ‘Skip Lock Screen’ feature from Google’s Pixel 4

Face Unlock on Google’s Pixel 4 is less secure than the iPhone’s Face ID, but it does have one feature I’d like to see Apple copy: Skip Lock Screen.

Copying that would be perfectly fair, as Google has recently confirmed that it will be copying at least part of Face ID’s Require Attention feature…


The Pixel 4 will copy Require AttentionLike Apple’s iPhone X, XS, and 11, Google’s new flagship Pixel 4 smartphone can unlock by recognizing your face. However, the company quickly came under fire when it was revealed that the device can be unlocked even when the owner is asleep, simply by someone else holding it up to their face.

With iPhones, there is a Requires Attention toggle. When this is on, your iPhone will only unlock if your eyes are open and you are actually looking at the screen. Google has now said that it plans to copy at least the first part of this requirement.

Google this evening confirmed to The Verge that it’s “been working on an option for users to require their eyes to be ope…

Making phone calls using Your Phone on Windows 10 [video]

Microsoft nailed down a partnership with Samsung to bring calling functionality to the Your Phone app with the Galaxy Note 10, but the feature should soon also be available to all Android devices.

Twitter user Ajith confirmed that the Your Phone app with calls and dialer support is working with his Realme 3 Pro phone.

The screenshots indicate that the Windows 10 app's settings page will allow users to toggle on the ability to "allow this app to make and manage calls from my phone".



At the Galaxy Note 10 launch last month, Samsung and Microsoft said Note 10 users would be able to use the Phone screen feature to mirror their phone screens on their Windows 10 PCs and use their PC keyboards, mouse, and touchscreens to interact directly with their phone apps.

Microsoft has been the deployment of Windows 10 in the form of waves, such as a free upgrade to Windows 8 and Windows 7 users. Although it is difficult to compare the exact figures between Windows 10 and Windows 8, Microsoft "sold" 40 million licenses of Windows 8 a month after its debut. Microsoft took six months to reach 100 million licenses of Windows 8, and it is evident that the free Windows 10 it is clearly superior to adoption rates.

How to install Windows 10 Technical Preview Now

Prior to installation
There are a couple of caveats to keep in mind before doing anything:

Backup your data first! Not that you had no excuse not anyway, but make sure to back up your data before upgrading if you have something that can not be recovered. Or even if it does not. Just do a backup.You will not be able to use the recovery partition to downgrade. If you have a recovery partition on the system, which will no longer be able to restore your computer to the Windows version you had before.Recovery will support external Rollback. As is expected, since it has a recovery partition, you need a floppy or USB with Windows 8 (or more) on it to go back to how things were, if you do not like or can not use Windows 10.
Microsoft As mentioned several times, this is a pre-release software and is expected to be very buggy and crash-prone probably. It is not recommended that you install this on your computer at work or anything that needs daily use. We will show you how to install it on a sp…
