It didn’t happen right away, but sometimes better late than never is just the way to go. For Google Maps users out there with an iPhone X, the wait is over.
A lawsuit has been filed in the London High Court against Google for allegedly tracking Safari users by exploiting a loophole in the browser. Safari blocks all cookies by default. However, Google managed to circumvent Safari and make it seem like an invisible form was filled, allowing the browser to store the cookies on a user’s iPhone.

An update to the official Google app on iOS brings a handy feature on board.

Google Opinion Rewards has been available on Android since quite some time. This service allows users to earn quick bucks by taking short surveys on a wide range of topics, mostly related to apps or your favorite TV shows, movies etc. Well, this service is now making its way to iOS, allowing customers to earn up to $1 per survey. Since the surveys are short, they can be taken practically anywhere and won’t take more than 30 seconds of your time in most cases. Surveys aren’t sent frequently, however, and you might have to wait days or even weeks between surveys.
