Apple iOS 12 updates show changing mobile industry focus

2 monthes ago   |   By Tech Radar

The software upgrades announced by Apple at the Worldwide Developers Conference in many ways epitomised the ongoing shift in the mobile market. When the first 3G and 4G networks were being envisioned, the modern smartphone was barely a consideration. Indeed, the concept of a smartphone at all was limited to some curiosity Nokia handsets and whatever Microsoft's mobile division was working on at any given moment. The advent of the iPhone in 2007 (and the Android devices that have competed with it) changed everything. Over the past decade, operators have looked to handset manufacturers to...

Apple Music Artist Profiles Get Redesign in iOS 12 Beta With Enlarged Portraits and Shuffle All 'Play' Button

2 monthes ago   |   By Mac Rumors

Apple didn't touch upon Apple Music at all during its WWDC keynote yesterday, leaving any potential new details about the streaming music service to be discovered by early beta testers of iOS 12. For now, it appears that Apple Music remains largely the same between iOS 11 and iOS 12, but some Redditors have discovered at least one update for artists and their profile pages in the Music app on iPhone.
With the update, artist profiles now have larger images that take up half of the screen on iPhone. Under the image is the artist's name, accompanied by a new play button. According to users on...

IOS 12 Allows for Multiple Face ID Users on a Single iPhone X

IOS 12 Allows for Multiple Face ID Users on a Single iPhone X

2 monthes ago   |   By Mac Rumors

The iOS 12 beta appears to support adding a second face to the Face ID feature, allowing a second person to unlock an iPhone X without entering the passcode. This was discovered and later confirmed by multiple users on Reddit.
Ever since the iPhone X was released last September, Apple's Face ID authentication system has been restricted to recognizing a single person's face to unlock the iPhone X. Though iOS is ostensibly designed as a single-user operating system, this restriction has frustrated some users who wish to allow their partner or other family member to unlock their phone for...

IOS 12 Beta Lets Apple Music Subscribers Search for Some Songs Using Lyric Phrases

2 monthes ago   |   By Mac Rumors

A Reddit user has discovered that the first beta of iOS 12 includes a Music app feature that allows Apple Music subscribers to search for songs using lyric phrases.
As the image below shows, using the search phrase "Loving you isn't the right thing to do" - the first lines of Fleetwood Mac's "You Can Go Your Own Way" - successfully returns the relevant song, and quotes the lyrical phrase in the single's entry in the results.
MacRumors can confirm that the lyric search does work, but seemingly not yet for all songs with lyrics in the Apple Music archive. Several beta testers on Reddit also...

2 monthes ago   |   By Mac Rumors

As more users sign onto the first beta for Apple's iOS 12, new discoveries are quickly being made, with the latest centering upon a simple but highly useful new gesture for iPhone X owners.
Currently, when you hold up the iPhone X and Face ID fails, you either have to lower it and raise it again, or press the side button to put the iPhone to sleep and wake it up through another side button press or tapping the display. Both of these methods will reactivate a Face ID scan.
