Kelly Guimont and Dave Hamilton join Jeff Gamet at Apple’s 2018 Worldwide Developer Conference to look at iOS 12 and macOS Mojave 10.14 password management, device compatibility, and also Shortcuts and Workflow.
The launch of iOS 12 beta this week indicates that we’ll see more than a simple performance upgrade to the iPad this year, with several changes pointing to a new design that looks a lot more like the iPhone X, including Face ID, no home button, and a notch.
Automatic updates may soon be available to iPhone and iPad users as part of iOS 12, enabling system and security updates to install without user intervention. But the risks of having your iPhone unexpectedly unavailable may mean that this will be an exclusively opt-in feature.
SAN JOSE – With the addition of Do Not Disturb, greater Notifications controls, and Screen Time, Apple is giving users the ability to better manage their mobile time. Parents can also use Screen Time to give their kids time allowances.
Passwords on iOS 12 are receiving some enhancements. This includes iOS’s built-in password manager, and third-party password managers.
Apple’s acquisition of Workflow last year now makes sense, because the Workflow app is now called Shortcuts.
SAN JOSE – The next major update for the company’s mobile platform focused on Siri skills, performance, improved communication, enhanced augmented reality tools, and addiction controls.
Dave Hamilton and Jeff Gamet share their reactions to the 2018 Worldwide Developer Conference keynote presentation where Apple showed off iOS 12, watchOS 5, tvOS 12, and macOS Mojave 10.14.
The iOS 12 Photos app has a couple of new features centered around searching and sharing. Here is what’s new.
It’s now called Apple Books, and it has plenty of new features that should keep readers happy.
Apple is planning on bringing landscape orientation support to Face ID in iOS 12, which sure sounds like a feature for an iPad that unlocks using your face instead of your fingerprint.
Andrew Orr and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to talk about end-to-end encryption in Twitter direct messages, plus what the possibility of landscape-orientation Face ID in iOS 12 means for the iPad.
The folks at iupdateos have made a great iOS 12 concept video with all kinds of features we might hope to see in the real deal. It includes group FaceTime calls with an interface that works, and demonstrations of a Dark Mode interface that looks great. it also shows a great dynamic wallpaper I wish Apple would bring to iOS. I’d love for my Lock Screen to be dynamic. Another nice feature are Lock Screen complications. The one thing about the Notch on iPhone X I don’t like is that I can’t see whether I set my alarm from the Lock Screen. There’s one more thing I love about this video and that’s how well it’s done. The folks who made it did a terrific job. What do you think?
Andrew talked to developer and author Erica Sadun, James Thomson of TLA Systems, and Paul Kafasis of Rogue Amoeba Software.
Bryan Chaffin and Andrew Orr join Jeff Gamet to share their thoughts on Apple’s plans for iOS 12, plus they discuss the debate surrounding iPhone X sales.
Don’t look for a long list of big new features in iOS 12 because Apple is focusing on performance and reliability improvements this year.
