The password itself is crappy. It’s a fundamentally flawed mechanism for securing our accounts and data that should have died long ago. That means poorly crafted passwords are doubly bad. But with the release of iOS 12 and recent updates to Android, truly terrible passwords—your 123456, facebookpassw0rd, or dEadP3tsnAme—have lost all reason to exist.

It's iOS 12 launch day, which means that it's finally out of beta and onto your iPhone and iPad. It brings a slew of new features with it, including the ability to measure objects in Augmented Reality.
Unsurprisingly, people on the internet jumped on the dick jokes immediately. But be warned -- if you're going to use the Measure app to get a read on your dong, it may not be that accurate.
Happy iOS 12 day, everybody—after being announced back in June, the final version of Apple’s mobile OS gets pushed out to eager iPhone and iPad users across the world today. You’ll need an iPhone 5C or newer or a 2013 iPad or newer (anything that could run iOS 11, essentially), and when you’ve got the software installed, here’s everything you can do.
Get hyped, people. We're less than 24 hours away from Apple's Day 2018! It's the time of year when Tim Cook takes to the Steve Jobs Theatre stage to announce a fresh batch of iPhones for people to throw their hard earned dollars at.
Considering all the leaks and rumours flying around this year, anticipation is unsurprisingly high.
But new phones won't be the only thing on the agenda. Here's what we're anticipating.
In a little less than a week a horde of rabid souls will cram into the Steve Jobs Theatre on the Apple campus in Cupertino to watch Tim Cook and friends announce... something. As it’s September it’s safe to assume that something will include an iPhone. But what kind of iPhones and what other gadgets might Apple have in store?
Software updates are exciting. I keep telling my friends this, and when they get behind on their updates, I’m all, “Hey, you’re missing out on good stuff!” This is part of the reason why I’m sometimes the guy who downloads beta versions of software. The bugs are annoying, but hey, the features are better.
This approach recently backfired on me with macOS and iOS 12. Unexpectedly, I think the resulting disaster made me a better computer user.
The public beta version of Apple's newest mobile operating system, iOS 12, is now out in the wild, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it to find out whether Apple had really fixed the most annoying thing about using the iPhone X - screenshots - as we expected it would when the developer beta became available last month.
Both Google and Apple have started the long tease ahead of new software updates in Spring, with Android P and iOS 12 now available to users who are brave enough to take the plunge (and have a developer account, in Apple's case). So which beta software looks most promising and gets us most excited? Here's how they stack up.
Among the blizzard of news bits from Apple's WWDC, a much-anticipated feature has returned to the beta for iOS 12: A mode for keeping the FBI and other snoopers out of your phone. The feature has come and gone in the past, but it's looking more real and better than ever this time around. Still, I'll believe it when it's actually live.
You may have heard that there's a new version of iOS on the way, bringing with it Group FaceTime and a bunch of other cool stuff. Each iOS update ushers in more new features than Apple can cover in a keynote though, so we took a dive into the first iOS 12 developer preview to see what else is coming down the line.
If you hoped that Tim Cook would surprise the world and introduce some new Apple hardware at this year's WWDC keynote, you must feel sorely disappointed. But if you get all hot and bothered by attractive and useful macOS upgrades, you are in luck. The annual developer conference is off to an interesting start with a long list of little things that will make using Apple products a lot better.
At WWDC Apple debuted the next version of its iOS operating system, iOS 12. After dealing with issue after issue in iOS 11 for the past year, the company's shied away from a visual overhaul, opting to fix what ails the OS and add some features that, while not revolutionary, are welcome additions to iOS 12 (and hopefully mean fewer bugs in the long run).
You know what's about to go down, don't you? No? Well get ready to charge your iPhone, empty your wallet, and renew your developer account, because Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference is right around the corner. This year, WWDC 2018 runs Monday, June 4 to Friday, June 8 local time at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. The keynote kicks the whole thing off at 3AM AEST (1AM AWST) Tuesday morning.
It looks like iOS 12 won't be as flashy or fun as Apple originally wanted it to be. Following months of embarrassing bugs and performance issues, the company is reportedly pushing some features originally slated for this year's iOS 12 update back to 2019. Engineers will be focusing on quality and reliability instead.
