Quick skills you can build in Apple devices, apps & browsers



Tip #12 - 06/07/24



AS IF my life wasn’t already made better, easier and more fun with all my Apple devices and software, I was utterly glued to the TV watching the nearly 2-hour rollout of Apple's upcoming iOS 18 and MacOS Sequoia, and now I can’t wait to explore and utilize these creative and ground-breaking additions all of their operating systems!


Apple is set to make quite the splash with a slew of new features that will either revolutionize your digital life or, at the very least, give you something to brag about to your Android-using friends.


For iOS 18, Apple is finally bringing interactive widgets to the home screen, allowing you to do more than just stare at tiny, static boxes. Imagine controlling your smart home devices, replying to messages, and even getting live sports updates without ever opening an app. In a bid to make multitasking even smoother, the new iOS will also introduce a dynamic island, expanding and contracting based on your activity, providing a seamless and intuitive user experience.


Meanwhile, MacOS Sequoia is here to make sure your laptop feels like it's from the future (or at least like it’s not five years old). The new Continuity features will make your Apple ecosystem tighter than a drum, allowing for effortless transitions between your devices. Start an email on your iPhone and finish it on your MacBook without a hitch. The MacOS update also promises enhanced privacy features, because, let’s face it, we all need more of that. There’s also a brand-new Safari overhaul, promising even faster browsing and better battery life, because who doesn't want to eke out a few more minutes of screen time before the inevitable search for a charger?

There are too many more sizzles to talk about, but stay tuned for next week when we talk about the ‘elephant in the room’ Apple Intelligence (AI for the rest of us)
