When ARKit first came out with iOS 11 last year, we saw a slew of measurement apps. Apps to map out your entire house, and apps to measure an object or just to measure the distance between point A and point B. But clearly, none of the apps were good enough because Apple is bringing its own AR Measure app in iOS 12. And it’s going to be pre-installed on every iPhone that’s updated to iOS 12.
How to use iPhone and iPad
A day after Apple released the first public beta of iOS 12, it was released the first public beta of macOS Mojave as well. The final release of the OS is scheduled for release later this year and Apple is doing a public beta test to ensure its free from bugs before its final release.
Three weeks after initially unveiling the first developer beta of iOS 12, Apple has released the first public beta of the OS. The public beta release is essentially the second developer beta of iOS 12 which Apple had released last week. While installing a developer beta on your iPhone or iPad requires an Apple developer account which is paid, there’s no such requirement for installing the public beta release.
Last week, Apple launched a repair program for the butterfly keyboard of the MacBook and MacBook Pro thereby perhaps acknowledging that the keyboards have an inherent design flaw and are simply not as reliable as the previous non-butterfly keyboards.
Apple has introduced a number of handy little features in macOS Mojave. One such feature is Stacks which helps in keeping your cluttered desktop clean by automatically organizing your shortcuts and files.
Screenshots are great for sharing moments such as your high score in a game, a scene from a video, conversations on social networks, and even report bugs.
When the iPad, iPad Pro, iPad Air or iPad mini is acting up or when you encounter a bug, your first instinct is usually to force restart your iPad. This nifty trick takes care of small bugs in the operating system (everything from battery issues to UI bugs).
One of the features on our iOS 12 wishlist was Lock screen widgets. Especially, a weather widget. We didn’t ask for a whole system of third-party interactive widgets. A simple Apple Watch style complications system would have been enough. We didn’t see any of that. But Apple did give us a weather widget. Well, sort of.
macOS Mojave is arguably the biggest update to the OS in the last few years. After releasing relatively minor macOS updates over the last few years, Apple has gone all out with Mojave and introduced a ton of new features withy it. One such feature is Dark mode which has long been requested by Mac users.
The iPhone X brought about some major changes to how an iPhone usually works. Apart from ditching the home button, Apple completely switched to a gesture-based navigation system on the handset as well. It also slightly tweaked the functionality of the App Switcher which in turn made closing apps on the handset difficult.
