Apple today unveiled new features coming in iOS 12 that are meant to protect its users' digital wellbeing. "We first introduced parental controls for iPhone in 2008, and our team has worked thoughtfully over the years to add features to help parents manage their children's content".
The new Gmail web interface has been available for over a month now, but it's still in preview and it's an opt-in affair. "They'll have the option to opt out of the new Gmail for an additional four weeks". This can house Google Calendar, Google Keep and Google Tasks all in an easily-accessed bar. However, the roadmap makes it apparent that Google doesn't want to waste time or split its user base.
This wouldn't have been put there by accident and it seems way too coincidental for it to be referring to a new vehicle game, but wait, there's more. Interactive Games to unveil something related to the stealth-action franchise on June 7, 2018, which will be just a few short days from now.
Microsoft even runs an Insider program for Mac users to test new capabilities before they roll out to everyone else. The Mac App Store is a ghost town of limited selection and Apple customers have long complained that some Mac apps get short shrift.
But Apple says the update will be compatible with Apple Watch Series 1 or later. For all else, watchOS 5 will come for all Apple Watch models after those very first ones, so at least that's good. Third-party apps will be able to play background audio, you'll be able to customize the control center, you can add an air quality rating to your watch face, or add your student ID card to the watch.
In this post, you'll find all of the biggest announcements from WWDC 2018 in one place.
