India’s New Indigenous Operation System BharOS
IIT Madras incubated firm J and K Operations has introduced the indigenous BharOS operating system. The new BharOS will be available for commercial off-the handsets. The new operating system is meant for privacy and security and has no default apps (NDA). It has no default app which means it won’t require users to use any pre-installed apps.
It will help users get more control over the app permissions when there are no more pre-installed apps and they can only provide the apps with data access permissions if they trust them.
The BharOS developers have announced that this new operating system can benefit the country’s 100 crore mobile users. They are also claiming that the OS has been designed to provide a more secure experience to the users.
Professor V . Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras, said “BharOS Service is a Mobile Operating System built on a foundation of trust, with a focus on providing users more freedom, control, and flexibility to choose and use only the apps that fit their needs. This innovative system promises to revolutionize the way users think about security and privacy on their mobile devices” during a press conference.
The new BharOS will also provide native over-the-air updates (NOTA), which will be automatically downloaded and installed on the device without the requirement of any manual work. The NOTA process will ensure the devices running BharOS have the latest updates and security patches.
