It may finally be time to buy a new phone.according to 91mobiles According to the discovery, Google will prohibit Android 2.3.7 (Gingerbread) or earlier models from logging in to its app services from September 27. Although this has no effect on logging in through the web, if you want to use the built-in app to receive messages or view maps, you need Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) or Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) or higher models. okay. In a letter sent to users, Google stated that protecting user privacy was the main reason for making this decision, but did not further explain where there is a risk of privacy leakage in Android versions prior to 2.3.7.

Even if the mobile phones purchased at that time are still available, it should be quite difficult to run modern services. Having said that, it’s quite rare for Google to make it clear that it will terminate support for the basic functions of the old Android system. It may be considered that Google has set a 10-year limit for Android support. If it exceeds the limit, it does not guarantee the integrity of the function. Right?
