The OG App remains on the Play Store, for now
Apple said to be targeting 90 million handsets by the end of 2022
Russia's largest social network has 75 million monthly users
Why it matters: Apple has removed Russia's Facebook competitor, VKontakte, from the App Store globally, a move prompted by new UK sanctions. It's one of several apps from VK, Russia's second-largest internet company, to have been dropped from the store, and the country is demanding an explanation.
More issues for Apple to fix
In a nutshell: Bugs in new phones are something that's become a common problem for consumers. The iPhone 14 Pro seems to suffer from quite a few of them, the latest of which include random restarts and cellular connectivity issues.

Is Apple's tech too cutting-edge for some apps?
In a nutshell: As with previous Apple handsets, one of the highlights of the iPhone 14 Pro is its cutting-edge camera tech. But it appears that owners are encountering major issues when using the phone's snapper via third-party apps such as Instagram and Snapchat: the camera is shaking and making very concerning noises.
Mainly just bug fixes for the iPhone 14 Pro Max camera
Why it matters: The average price of an in-app purchase (IAP) on the Apple App Store has increased by a whopping 40% year-over-year in July, compared to a more modest rise of 9% on the Google Play Store. App intelligence firm Apptopia believes this is largely due to privacy changes from Apple.
The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will debut on Friday, and the first reviews are already out and they're pretty positive. Both feature a new 48MP camera sensor, satellite SOS and crash detection, but the key difference you'll notice is the new "Dynamic Island" that includes many software touches.
Highly anticipated: Apple's latest operating systems for the iPhone and Apple Watch are now readily available. Of course, you don't have to buy a new Apple device to enjoy most of the features on either new system software. However, keep in mind that, as always, compatibility is limited. For iPhone users, iOS 16 supports iPhone 8 and later. Apple Watch customers need to have a Series 4 or newer for watchOS 9.
