Programming language Python in VS Code: New Jupyter extension supports R and Julia

Microsoft has released a new version of the Python language extension for its Visual Studio Code (VS Code) code editor that breaks out its Jupyter Notebooks functionality into a distinct VS Code extension, and has hired Python’s creator, Guido van Rossum. 

Python these days is a top-two programming language and is even more popular than Java, the widely used software that Oracle gained after its 2008 acquisition of Sun Microsystems.   

Python’s popularity is also borne out by downloads of the Python extension for Microsoft’s VS Code, one of the most popular code editors on the market. 

The ascent of Python is attributable to data science and machine learning, but it’s also a critical language for back-end system automation and scripting. It’s popular because it’s easy to learn, allowing non-developers to use the language.

iPhone 12 supports iOS updates over 5G, but users might need to manually activate feature

An Apple support document published this week notes iPhone 12 series handsets support 5G downloads of iOS updates, though some users might need to manually enable the feature.

Apple outlined the capabilities of iPhone 12 series 5G data modes in a support document published Tuesday.

Users benefit from high-quality FaceTime calls, high-definition video and audio, and iOS updates over cellular with Allow More Data. In addition, third-party apps are unleashed to use more cellular data for “enhanced experiences.” This setting is automatically selected as iPhone’s default with certain unlimited-data plans on a carrier-by-barrier basis.

Apple states that the Standard data mode, which enables automatic updates
