HarmonyOS 2.0, Huawei’s new operating system, seems to be a big hit in China. It has already surpassed the 10 million user mark, also referred to as active devices. The company has opted to celebrate the anniversary with a somewhat interesting-looking cake, as you can see above. By the way, the TWS headphones, watch, smartphone, and television are all edible components of the cake.
While the adoption of the new brand has been rapid, it’s important to know that HarmonyOS isn’t a single operating system; rather, it appears to serve as an umbrella brand for Huawei’s various operating systems as well as its Internet-of-Things products.

Which Devices Support HarmonyOS 2?
In China, the HarmonyOS 2 update is currently available for the Mate 40 series, P40 series, Mate 30 series, and MatePad Pro. The closed beta for the P30 series, Honor 30, and V30 will be available later this month, with public beta following in July.
It will be fascinating to watch how the company manages the move to HarmonyOS on non-Chinese devices. Following a solid start, the number of devices using the new OS will continue to increase in the future. By the end of the year, Huawei expects to have 360 million active devices running HarmonyOS and 1.2 million developers developing apps for its platforms.
Richard Yu, the CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, has said earlier that the company is switching about 100 of its products worldwide to the new operating system. Including tablets like the MatePad Pro. It’s a significant change from Huawei’s earlier phones, which ran an open-source version of Android. Now Huawei’s own services will substitute Google software, which the company has been unable to use due to US sanctions.
