Another reason to expect a USB-C iPhone next year
Highly anticipated: The Made by Google launch event starts on October 6 at 10 am ET. The company should announce a slew of new products, including the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro phones, the Pixel Watch, and some new additions to its Nest smart home portfolio.
TL;DR: The coming energy crisis could bring mobile Internet to a halt in many European countries. Plans are being considered to weather the storm, but Europe would likely suffer from its own success in bringing reliable electricity to its citizens.

The OG App remains on the Play Store, for now
Intel's Unison app could allow Apple-like phone-to-PC connectivity between Windows, Android, and iOS
Something to look forward to: Users with Macs and Apple mobile devices have enjoyed a range of connectivity features between those products for years --AirDrop, Handoff, Universal Clipboard, and AirPlay are just a few. Intel recently unveiled software seeking to build similar bridges between Windows PCs and phones running iOS and Android.
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.

In context: It's a sad fact that many women on social media will have unintentionally viewed an unsolicited nude photo in their DMs at some point.

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.
Support for 3.5GHz on AT&T narrows
Forward-looking: 5G wireless networks are still in their infancy but that isn't stopping leading mobile experts from exploring what comes next. LG has demonstrated the wireless transmission and reception of 6G terahertz (THz) data over a distance of 320 meters outdoors. The feat took place at the Fraunhofer HHI in Berlin, Germany, on September 7 at a frequency range of 155 to 175 GHz.
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.
Launching this October for around $160
