Summer is here, and so are the announcements by Google and Apple about the new features in forthcoming versions of mobile operating systems. Google announced the upcoming features in Android Q in their I/O 2019 event. Apple announced its new features coming in iOS 13 in Worldwide Developers Conference 2019. In this newsletter, we will summarize the upcoming features of the world's two most popular mobile operating systems.
Mobile adoption trends change, just like the seasons in a year. Spring of 2019 brings a new change in these trends. In this newsletter, we bring to you the latest figures of market usage of smartphones, tablets, vendors, and operating systems. We have compared their trends of usage being followed in the US market versus rest of the world. Mobile testing engineering teams will find this comparison statistics helpful in devising the device-testing matrix for planning the release of their products across the globe.
Winter is here and so is the time to stay most of the time indoor, glued to mobile and tablet screens and experience new releases of mobile operating systems Android 9 and iOS 12 that got released in the market during Fall season. As users get more opportunity to access new features and so do new questions come. In this newsletter, we’d love to highlight one such question, What is Mobile Accessibility? How do we perform Mobile Accessibility testing?
Fall is here and so does the season of new releases of mobile operating systems. Google released a new Android version 9, named as Pie and Apple released a new iOS version 12. These new versions of operating systems have come up with improvements in key areas of simplicity, digital wellbeing, intelligence, privacy, and security. In this newsletter, we highlight major features of both operating systems and bring you the latest news of mobile engineering space.
Mobile adoption trends change with every season. Summer of 2018 brings a new change in these trends. In this newsletter, we bring to you the latest figures of market usage of phones, tablets, vendors, operating systems and have compared their usage trends being followed in the markets of the United States versus rest of the World. Software Engineering teams will find this comparison statistics helpful in devising the device testing matrix for planning the releases of their products across the globe.
New Year brings an opportunity for Engineering teams to update their OS/Platform/Device testing matrix as per market usage trends. Fall 2017 had witnessed releases of newer versions of Apple and Android operating systems. As a result, Winter 2018 is witnessing a shift in usage trends of Smartphones. In this newsletter, we bring to you the latest trends in market usage of Smartphone Operating Systems, their manufacturers and information about newer releases of Mobile engineering tools.
During this Fall 2017, world will witness the release of newer versions of iOS and Android operating systems. Communities have started debating who will be better - iOS or Android? It will be the 10th anniversary of the original iPhone and Apple wants to make it a hit. Android is now a mature OS and is capable to hang with any OS we put it up against. The changes coming in Android O are not revolutionary changes, but rather incremental improvements. In this newsletter, we have highlighted major features of both operating systems and bring you the latest news in Mobile engineering space.
Data has become an essential part of every industry, organization and individual. With the advent of social media, the data is growing exponentially and needs to be managed so that it can be stored and retrieved quickly for faster processing. Here, 'Big Data' is a term used to identify the datasets that cannot be processed using traditional computing techniques. New technologies are required to store unstructured large datasets and processing methods. In this newsletter, we bring you the concepts that help us to understand the tools/techniques used to manage Big Data so that you can employ the right kind of tool as per your testing requirements.
Device fragmentation is a key factor in designing the scope of device matrix for QA plan. Mobile app engineering teams keep a continuous watch on the market trends for this purpose. QASource's Mobile QA Group analyzed market statistics from various sources: Statista, IDC, comScore, Gartner and identified suggestions in this quarter's Mobicast newsletter. Hope you find these suggestions helpful in deciding what can be an ideal device matrix for your QA plan. We welcome your inputs to these knowledge updates and would be happy to take this as a continuous discussion to help our software engineering community.
In Mobile app development, one of the key challenge is creating and maintaining cross-platform mobile apps in a cost-effective manner. This challenge may continue to exist in this new year 2017. QASource Mobile QA Group went window shopping this New Year and has identified an A-Z options of Cross-Platform Mobile App Development Tools that may trend in the year 2017.
