Android Q will gradually begin to limit programs based on Android 6.0 development
The higher the Android version used by users, the more comprehensive and safer the natural features, and of course the same is true for most developers.
However, no matter which platform the developer is reluctant to use the new API interface, there are some particular reasons for using the old interface naturally.
The initial build of the Android Q version begins to build:
Google has previously released the official version of Android P and provides code for vendor adaptation, and the new version of Android Q has been made sense now.
The code for Android Q version includes the system check API version; if the API version of the application call is too low, it will directly pop up the window warning.
In the Android P version, there is a similar API version detection work, but the Android P version only limits the API interface based on Android 1.6.
Why developers are reluctant to use the new interface:
As the article at the beginning of the article says that the new API interface provides richer functionality and is more secure, why are developers reluctant to use the new interface?
Because with the construction of the Android API, Google began to tighten the various permissions, the previous loose treatment caused the current Android experience is not good.
For example, the version API after Android 6.0 has stricter control over permissions, so some developers are reluctant to use the new version if they want more permissions.
Google is about to check out the old app:
Currently available apps for the Google App Store must be based on Android 8.0+, but previously developed apps don’t have this limitation yet.
However, Google said that it would start checking the old version of the app from November this year. If it does not release a new version based on Android 8.0+, Google will remove it.
Until the Android Q version is around August next year, every old version of the app will pop up a window warning every time you open the browser to remind developers and users to update.
