Reminder: this was an “s” year for the iPhone. Bryan Chaffin and Jeff Gamet discuss what this means, and how iPhone XS is a solid “nuts and bolts” update. They also look at some listener feedback about headphone jacks, and discuss whether or not Siri Shortcuts will be a thing.
The iPhone and iPad’s accessibility features offer a sort of “dark mode” that’ll invert the colors on your screen without messing with images and other media. It’s awesome for those who have trouble viewing iOS devices using the default color scheme, but it’s also handy to make your screen less bright in the dark!
The update will feature the ability to search for songs by lyrics, set multiple named timers, make and receive phone calls, Find My iPhone, and use Siri Shortcuts.
iOS 12 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch will officially launch on Monday, September 17th as a free upgrade for compatible devices.
