The upcoming version, Android N, is going to stop ransomware from resetting a device's password, claims security firm Symantec.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Google surprised the tech community when they released the Android N Developer Preview a couple months before Google I/O, their annual developer conference.
One of Android N's headline features is a new split-screen mode that lets you run two apps side by side.
Android N's split-screen mode asks apps to deal with being resized on the fly.
In the first release of Android M, the split-screen mode wouldn't show up in the settings until a line in the build.prop file was changed from "ro.build.type=user" to "ro.build.type=userdebug." Sadly, that trick doesn't work for Android N's freeform window mode.
As far as we can tell, making this feature work would require rooting Android N, pulling the framework-res.apk, decompiling it, opening "framework-res/res/values/bools.xml," changing the "config_freeformWindowManagement" setting from "false" to "true," recompiling it, pushing it to a device, and praying it boots.
Therefore, any update to Android is a major development and unexpectedly Google launched (http://www.ibtimes.com/android-n-google-releases-software-update-split-screen-support-it-plays-catch-ios-2333835) a preview of Android N , the latest version, on Wednesday. It provides a glimpse at what features users can expect in the coming 12 months.
Google said there will be five preview builds before the final version of Android N is released in the third quarter of 2016.
The move is also designed to get Android N to manufacturers like Samsung, LG and Sony faster and speed up the update cycle, something which has plagued the operating system for years.
Google is offering two ways to download the Android N preview.
India, April 18 -- The next version of Android, Android N, may have added capabilities for VR.
