12:27 PMApple takes Walkie Talkie back to the Apple Watch
Apple is today taking off programming refreshes crosswise over iOS, watchOS, and the HomePod as it gets ready for a lot greater discharges with new highlights coming this fall. The iOS 12.4 discharge presents another "iPhone relocation" alternative that "acquaints the capacity with remotely move information and move straightforwardly from an old iPhone to another iPhone during arrangement," as indicated by the update discharge notes.
Apple has just offered a remote exchange choice between iOS gadgets, however it depends on iCloud for pretty much everything. The new strategy moves a great deal of substance — application information, gadget settings, photographs, and so on — straightforwardly from iPhone to iPhone. Applications should in any case be downloaded from the App Store after the relocation step is finished, nonetheless.
One huge thing is that passwords are currently incorporated into the information moved from an old iPhone to the upgraded one. Already, passwords weren't spared as a major aspect of iCloud reinforcements for security and protection reasons. There was an alternative to scramble a gadget reinforcement with iTunes to store passwords, however Apple likely needed to think of another choice that didn't require a PC being included.
iOS 12.4 also improves Apple News Plus browsing by making it easier to access all participating publications (including newspapers like The Wall Street Journal) at the top of the News Plus section.
Apple says today’s updates include a security fix that reenables the Walkie Talkie feature on the Apple Watch, which was briefly taken offline after a vulnerability was discovered that had the potential to allow someone to secretly listen in on another person’s iPhone without consent; Apple said it hasn’t seen any indication that anyone took advantage of the exploit before it was reported. The latest watchOS update — version 5.3 — also further expands support for the Apple Watch’s EKG feature and irregular heartbeat detection to Canada and Singapore.
And last, Apple says its HomePod smart speaker should now work in Japan and Taiwan.
Beta versions of iOS 12.4 contained underlying support for Apple’s upcoming credit card, the Apple Card, which is due for release sometime over the summer. The Apple Card website still remains unchanged, so Apple isn’t ready to accept applications for the card, which it’s bringing to market as a joint effort with Goldman Sachs. The company has allowed its own employees to apply for and begin testing the card, which includes perks like no fees, daily cash back on Apple and Apple Pay purchases, and a laser-etched physical card made from titanium that can be used wherever contactless payments aren’t yet accepted.
