    Apple only released iOS 12 to the general public yesterday, but seemingly no one takes time off at the iOS development HQ. The first decimal-point upgrade to iOS 12, iOS 12.1, is available for beta testing right now.
    We're still sifting through the changelog to see what new features this will bring, but it's quite possibly something to do with the release of the new iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max.

  • Apple's new iOS 12 software fixes the most annoying part of the iPhone X

    Apple's new iOS 12 software fixes the most annoying part of the iPhone X

    2 monthes ago - By Business Insider

    Apple's new iOS 12 software fixes the most annoying thing about the iPhone X - the fact that its design encourages you to take random screenshots of the lock screen.
    If the phone is locked and the screen is off, the iPhone X will no longer take a screenshot. Your camera roll will be spared all the random captures you make when you're just trying to unlock the phone.
    I've been using iOS 12 for months and this fix works great.
    You can get iOS 12 now as a free download.
    Generally speaking, I like - not love - my iPhone X. But it didn't take long after I got it before I ran into a niggling...

  • 10 awesome hidden features you need to try in iOS 12

    10 awesome hidden features you need to try in iOS 12

    2 monthes ago - By TheBoyGeniusReport

    Apple on Monday finally released iOS 12 to the public after three months of beta testing with developers and eager early adopters who signed up for the public beta. There were definitely a few bumps in the road along the way, like one beta release that completely killed GPS navigation in every single maps app for a week. For the most part, however, the iOS 12 beta period has been smooth sailing compared to previous years. Of course, that makes a lot of sense since iOS 12 is sort of like a turbocharged bug fix release for iOS 11. Sure there are plenty of new features to be found, but the...

    Google updates its Play Books iOS app at the same time as Apple's iBooks update in iOS 12

    2 monthes ago - By The Verge

    Google has released an update for the Play Books app on iOS , bringing an updated design that's “brighter, cleaner, and easier to use,” via AllThingsD .
    It's not a major update, feature-wise, but the new design should make navigating, reading, and listening to your books more enjoyable. It's certainly nice for anyone who buys their ebooks and audiobooks from Google's online store. But it's the timing that seems more significant: the update came out just hours after Apple launched iOS 12, which also offers an updated design for its own Apple iBooks app.
