New Qualcomm processor

In addition to the new smartphone, Apple is preparing to introduce the first official repair center for its products in Russia.

Spring package and its consequences
State Duma deputy Irina Yarovaya previously proposed a number of amendments to anti-terrorism laws, according to which mobile operators and owners of instant messengers are required to keep the fact of the transmission of messages and media files up to 3 years using Russian equipment , and the contents of messages and files up to six months. Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the "Spring Law" , after which he immediately entered into force.
Referring to the new amendments to the laws, the "Russian authorities" seized the servers of the first foreign VPN provider in Russia without any warning, which is why this VPN service - Private Internet Access - ceases its operations and leaves the Russian market.
