The case was an attempt to bring legal action against Google over claims that it collected the sensitive data of over 4 million iPhone users.
Apple has a cool mini website to show off the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Just load it up in Safari or Chrome on your mobile phone and you can spin the new iPhone models around by tilting your display. Phone specs pop up as the iPhones twirl around so you can learn more about them, plus you can choose which model you’re looking at, and the phone color, too. It’s a pretty cool was to explore the iPhone XS and XS Max.
A web-based CSS iPhone hack has the ability to crash and restart your phone with just a few lines of code, exploiting weaknesses in WebKit.
Google Chrome has a nifty way to reset a lot of its options to their defaults, from what your startup page is to your enabled extensions. This is incredibly helpful if you’ve managed to get some adware installed within that browser! We’ve got the cleanup details in today’s Quick Tip.

The other day I wrote about a keyboard shortcut you can use to scroll in macOS apps. That key combo does work in Safari, but there is an additional combination you can use.
Do you have it when a website’s form blocks Safari’s autocomplete or autofill? Or sites that block control-click access to ordinary Mac services? Or—and why for the love of anything remotely holy or sane—copy/paste? Why on earth do you think it’s OK to stop me from copy/pasting? Like, when you use 1Password to make a 24 character password, but the site won’t let you paste it in for the confirmation field? I saw that one yesterday and about blew a gasket! ::pounds desk in righteous fury:: OK, I’m taking a deep breath, because developer Jeff Johnson has solved this with a Safari Extension called StopTheMadness [via Daring Fireball]. It re-enables all the normal Mac services in Safari, and you control which services you want on a site-by-site-basis if you wish. It’s $5 on the Mac App Store. I bought it immediately.
