OREANDA-NEWS. On November 30, 2021, a post was published on the social networks of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, stating that Ukraine will conduct a population census with the support of Apple.

“Ukraine will become the second country in the world to conduct a population census in cooperation with Apple. We are proud of our joint projects with such a technology giant. We continue to build a digital state, "Zelensky's post says.

The Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine and Apple have signed a Memorandum of Cooperation, according to which the company will assist Ukraine in conducting the population census in 2023.

Thus, Ukraine will become the second country after the United States, which Apple will help to conduct a population census. Assistance will be provided in the form of equipment and special software provided for rent. Also, together with Apple, a project will be developed to improve digital literacy of Ukrainians.

“For us, one of the main priorities is to digitalize all public services, the work of public authorities,” Zelensky said.

The American company Apple has requested permission from Russia to increase the allowable communication power in the 6 GHz range in short-range devices. As Izvestia reports, this is due to plans to launch a new function - wireless data transmission using UWB (Ultra-Wide Band) technology.

According to the source, if the staff of the commission agree with the arguments of Apple, then they will have to change their own decision from 2007, indicating the new permissible radiation power for gadgets in Russia.

UWB technology has already been implemented in iPhone 11, 12 and 13, but is not yet available in Russia. According to the materials of the commission, the relevant departments, including the power ones, have already agreed to increase the power at the indicated frequencies.
