In Android 11 system, Google added an auto reset permission feature for apps. This feature is intended for applications that have been dormant for several months. Usually, these dormant apps can still run in the background, consuming user space and data. The auto-reset feature turns off these dormant apps so that they no longer run in the background. The auto-reset permissions feature has always been unique to devices running Android 11. However, according to the official Android blog, Google will bring this function to older devices with Android 6.0 and above.
From December, if your smartphone or tablet is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above, and you can access the app and google services, then it will support app auto reset permissions. This feature will be enabled for any app that targets / supports Android 11. For older apps that do not support Android 11, users can manually enable this feature through device settings.
However, there are a few exceptions to the usability of this feature. If users expect an app to run in the background without interacting with the app, developers can ask the user to prevent the system from resetting their app’s permissions. The main use cases are listed here.
Android 5G AP phone back-end test shipments to drop in Q4
There is currently a decline in demand for chips from smartphone makers in mainland China. As a result, packaging and testing factories in the Taiwan region predict that AP back-end test deliveries for 5G Android phones will decrease. This decline will take place mainly in the quarter of 2021. For MediaTek, its demand for testing 5G access points using the 7nm process in the fourth quarter will drop by 10-20%. According to previous reports, vendors of related chips may reduce their shipments slightly during the quarter.
Due to the previous large-scale storage, cellphone suppliers in mainland China still have enough inventory of 5G access points. The sales outlook for the fourth quarter is still uncertain. However, the Apple iPhone 13 series is likely to gain further momentum in the market. The packaging and testing factory may still get new 5G AP testing orders, but it may have to wait until the first quarter of next year at the earliest.
In fact, according to MediaTek’s previous estimates, despite strong support from TSMC’s foundry, starting in Q2 2021, shipments of mid-to-high-end 5G access points made on its 7/6nm node will decrease. slightly from quarter to quarter. Sources say Qualcomm’s order shipments from TSMC have started to increase significantly, but its fourth quarter orders from Samsung Electronics are expected to be lower than in the second quarter.
