App Store Connect allows developers to manage their applicants, view sales reports, access app analytics, invite users to test apps with TestFlight, get performance insights, and much more.
Developers are already playing around with how the functionality could work in the iOS 12 beta release, though without official Spotify app support things are still a bit rough. The HomePod has previously only given users Siri controls to bring up songs with Apple Music.
This new tab combines Memories and iCloud Shared Albums so you can have all your favourites in one place.
It will suggest that you share photos with a friend if they appear in a photo and then prompts the friend to share photos with you if you appear in their photos. The new feature that seems to be receiving the most ire, however, is group FaceTime video calls.
On the surface, the two companies are taking very similar approaches with the tools they're offering to present information to users. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.
Apple caught serious flack late previous year when people noticed that it was sometimes slowing down the processing speed of some old iPhones.
There's a new preview screen that shows users where they last left off in an eBook, as well as a new store that "makes browsing through eBooks and audiobooks better than ever".
That's unprecedented for Apple or any other smartphone maker.
Detailed Activity Reports show the total time spent in each app, usage across categories of apps, how many notifications are received and how often a person picks up their iOS device. There's also an App Limits tool, which enables users to set themselves a limit for individual applications.
Also in iOS, a new Do Not Disturb function can impose a black sleep screen on your iPhone, lest your sleep be distracted by middle-of-the-night notifications. Apple's virtual assistant Siri will also make suggestions for notification settings based on which alerts people act upon.
Group FaceTime calls are also being introduced with iOS 12.
When an ad tracks a user through those "like" buttons, for example, Apple devices will ask users whether they want to allow the tracking to happen.
This means that people with older iPhones will get some (though not necessarily all) of the new features included in iOS 12.
