Closure of almost all Xiaomi Stores in France

Xiaomi’s stores have almost all closed their doors suddenly in France. Don’t panic for the Chinese brand, which is still doing well in France. On the other hand, the service provider who managed its Xiaomi Store was the subject of a receivership.

The future of a dozen employees is uncertain. Also note that the store on the Champs-Élysées in Paris remains open. This is not affected, because it is managed by another provider.

TikTok has security issues on the iPhone

On iOS, the thorny subject of in-app browsers is gaining momentum. It is found that TikTok can read user passwords through this and, more generally, have access to a large amount of personal data. A developer has shown the extent of this worrying problem.

A date for the Apple keynote and the iPhone 14

Without mentioning the iPhone 14 (obviously), Apple finally reveals when they will be announced. The apple has indeed distributed its invitation cards for the next keynote to be held on September 7.

Apple Watch Series 8 and possibly AirPods Pro 2 are also expected to be announced.
