Officially ended in Adobe Flash. As previously announced, Adobe has confirmed that it will no longer provide support for Flash Player after December 31, 2020, and will prevent Flash content from running in Flash Player from January 12, 2021.
For many years, this kind of text has been shrouded at the end of Adobe Flash. As early as 2017, Adobe announced plans to abandon support for the Flash plug-in by the end of 2020, and is now fulfilling this promise.
As Adobe has been working hard to reduce Flash in the past three years, Apple’s message is consistent. The company emphasized on its WebKit blog when Adobe announced that the transition of Apple users from Flash began in 201
Apple users have been experiencing the web without Flash. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch have never supported Flash. For Mac, the transition from Flash started in 2010, when Flash was no longer pre-installed. Today, if a user installs Flash, it stays off by default. Safari requires explicit approval from each website before running the Flash plugin.
But, of course, since Steve Jobs famously published his “Thoughts on Flash” article in 2010 to address the main criticism of the iPhone at the time, the relationship between Apple and Adobe in Flash has been tense. for many years. And iPad as a substitute for computers.
I want to jot down some of our thoughts on Adobe Flash products so that customers and critics can better understand why we don’t allow Flash on iPhone, iPod and iPad. Adobe believes that our decision is mainly driven by business-they say we want to protect our App Store-but in fact this is based on technical issues. Adobe claims that we are a closed system, and Flash is open, but in fact the opposite is true.
In the letter, Jobs complained about Flash’s many defects, including defects in reliability, safety, battery life and performance. Although Adobe was arguing about Jobs’ claims at the time, Apple never introduced Flash to the iPhone and iPad, and Flash began to collapse shortly thereafter.
Adobe has a website dedicated to providing information about the Flash life cycle plan, stating that users should immediately uninstall Flash from their computers to “help protect their systems.”
Since Adobe will no longer support Flash Player after December 31, 2020, and Adobe will prevent Flash content from running in Flash Player from January 12, 2021, Adobe strongly recommends that all users uninstall Flash Player immediately to help protect Its system. Some users may continue to see reminders from Adobe asking to uninstall Flash Player from their systems.
