In case you missed it, earlier this week Apple announced the latest updates and features to its software at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC 2018) in California.

Anyone can easily see how much time they are spending on their device each day including how many times you actually pick it up to check it.

Apple says Safari will prevent share buttons and widgets on websites from tracking users without their permission.

A new discovery reveals that Siri will be able to control streaming apps in iOS 12, other than Apple Music, thanks to help from Shortcuts.

Apple has wasted little time in adjusting its rules to allow Valve's Steam Link app to appear on the App Store.

There's also "App Limits", which will allow you to limit usage to certain apps by setting a time limit and and receive alerts when that time is nearly up.

Also, there will be more control options for parents, which will allow them to make decisions regarding their children's usage of the phone.

At this point it is unclear whether Back to My Mac will make a return to macOS Mojave in a future beta release or if this is the end of a feature that has been around for some years but has dwindled in popularity. You can also get a feel for the software's performance on your phone or tablet, an intriguing proposition for those of you struggling on iOS 11.

In a response to The Sun, Shift said that they are not having any pleasure in going after Apple and also said that Apple can keep the logo if they wish, but has to compensate them for redesigning a new logo for themselves.

Apple said its popular FaceTime service can now include up to 32 people in a video call.

Using the functionality, you'll be able to assign specific words or phrases to open up and control specific apps. So, all the features of iOS 12 along with security upgrades will be available on the five-year old iPhone 5S as well.

However, the new iOS 12 will not be available until September, when Apple will announce the new iPhones at its press event. Tell us your concerns and things you are most excited about in the comment section below.
