The official release date of the Android OS 7 Nougat is October 2016. In the new version, the developers paid a lot of attention to the security of user data. For example, now File-based encryption is used, instead of the block level encryption. So, Android can better isolate all user data and files.
In addition, the backup system is improved, now more settings will be saved. Such as application permissions, settings of a mobile access point and Wi-Fi connection points.
Another important change was the emergence of the ability to change the size of interface elements, and not just the font size. For people with poor eyesight, this will be great news.
In the Android Nougat firmware notification bar and panel are changed too. When you have Android 7.0 firmware, you don’t need to pull notification bar down to turn on the Wi-Fi, because the most used Android notification bar icons of tools are available on the main panel. There is also the button to open the full list of tools in the mobile notification bar, where you can add as much tools, as you need.
Android Nougat firmware changes affected Clear button design, but its functions and locations are the same. The rest of notification bar options are same as Android M notification bar. You also have opportunity to choose between stock and custom Android notification bar versions.
