All the important new stuff Apple revealed at WWDC 2018
Speed through the WWDC 2018 keynote with sketchnotes
  • It is always exciting to capture the WWDC keynote in sketchnotes, and this year we filled up four pages with drawings showcasing the biggest new features coming in iOS 12, macOS Mojave and watchOS 5.
iOS 12 definitely speeds up your iPhone
  • Side-by-side comparisons between iOS 12 beta 1 and version 11.4 show clear speed improvements.
Apple’s Craig Federighi explains how iOS apps will work on macOS
How iOS 12’s smartest features put users firmly back in control
  • If any other company had introduced Screen Time, the new system-wide toolset for limiting phone distractions, then it would (rightly) be dismissed as a gimmick, a sop to the increasing worries about phone addiction. But as is typical of Apple, Screen Time looks like it took a lot of work to get just right.
iOS 12 makes iPhones immune to ‘brute force’ unlocking
  • The just-released beta of iOS 12 can be set to partially deactivate the Lightning port after an iPhone hasn’t been used for an hour. This is a clear attempt to make useless the unlocking tools employed by law enforcement (or thieves).
Face ID in iOS 12 recognizes two different faces
  • The first iOS 12 developer beta debuted after today’s WWDC keynote. Intrepid souls who’ve already installed this early version on their iPhone X noticed that Face ID can be trained to recognize more than one person.
