On this Monday, Apple updates its suit of iWork apps for both macOS and iOS devices, along with other software update releases (e.g. iOS 12 and Safari 12).
One of the most remarkable features introduced in the new iWork suit for iOS 12 devices is that all the three apps (Keynote, Numbers, and Pages) now support Siri Shortcuts, which means iOS 12 users can open any of these apps via Siri.
Safari 12, the latest version of Apple’s web browser, has been available to download for users running macOS 10.12.6 Sierra and macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra. This update introduces a range of new features and security improvements, and it will be installed by default in the macOS Mojave 10.14, which will come out on September 24th. So, should you update to Safari 12? Let’s see what new things it will bring to you:
How do you get and install an needed app on your Mac? Will you go to the Mac App Store or the vendor’s website? Apple always boast that its App Store is a safe place to download apps, as it will review the uploaded apps to prevent potential harmful apps from being published there. However, recent news shows that Mac App Store may not be as safe as you think: some popular Mac apps have been caught circumventing protections supposedly provided by the App Store and invading users’ privacy.
On last Friday a few security researchers revealed their findings independently that a bunch of Mac App Store apps are employing dubious tactics to monitor users’ computer activities, like silently spying on the browser history, which obviously violates Apple’s guidelines. By far, more apps are found to be in the suspicious list.
