Data Privacy Bill Withdrawn In India, New Law Expected To Come

India’s information technology minister on Wednesday withdrew a data protection bill which was first proposed in 2019 and alarmed big tech companies.

A government notice stated New Delhi was taking the decision as a parliamentary panel’s review of the bill had suggested 81 amendments, leading to the need for a new “comprehensive legal framework”.

The privacy bill was designed to protect Indian citizens and establish a so-called data protection authority, but it had raised concerns among Big Tech giants that it could increase their compliance burden and data storage requirements. Companies including Facebook and Twitter have for years been concerned with India’s proposed tighter regulations for the technology sector, which have often strained relations between New Delhi and Washington.

India says such regulations are needed to safeguard the data and privacy of citizens.

Apple Likely To Delay Release Of iPadOS 16, Here’s Why

Apple is reportedly planning to delay the launch of the next generation of iPadOS by some time, according to a new report.

A report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman has said that Apple may be planning to delay the iPadOS 16 launch till October 2022, due to an issue with the new Stage Manager feature on iPadOS 16. According to the report, the Stage Manager feature, which has the option to offer a more Mac-like multi-window experience on an iPad is still under development.

The delay is said to be caused partly due to the implementation of the Stage Manager as Apple is still working to fix the bugs. The delay will allow Apple more time to work on the bugs and fix them.
