Not all developers out there want your birth certificate and bathing schedule, but enough have proven themselves less than scrupulous over the years, so anything Apple and Google do to help users limit data collection and location tracking is always welcome. In fact, come September, iOS 11 will force app developers to provide the full range of location permissions, not just the on or off you get now.

Forget the HomePod or the latest version of iOS. The big news out of WWDC was related to something that Apple, and most consumers, don't really care about: Virtual Reality. In between Kaby Lake refreshes and Siri voice demos, Tim Cook announced a wide range of software and hardware changes that will finally bring VR to macOS, and that's pretty damn surprising because Tim Cook himself is on record as giving exactly zero damns about VR.
Apple packed a bunch of cool new features into the new iOS 11 update coming later this year, but it's possible none of those are cooler than a simple screen capturing tool that makes it easier than ever to record videos of your iPhone in use.
The crowd cheered in California this morning, when Apple announced HomePod, a new smart speaker armed with Siri, the company's virtual assistant. Minutes later, an image of the product appeared on Apple's website and, well, holy crap, it looks just like HAL 9000! Is Apple screwing with us?
After years of delay, Amazon and Apple have finally reached an agreement to bring the Amazon Prime video app to Apple TV set-top-boxes everywhere. Apple CEO Tim Cook made the announcement today at the company's annual developer conference WWDC 2017.
If you're someone who's constantly talking to Siri on your phone, you might be shocked by some of the big changes coming to the digital assistant. Today at Apple's annual developer conference, the company announced a bunch of upgrades and tweaks that will be coming to Siri later this year with the launch of iOS 11. There's an assortment of big changes being made to the artificially intelligent helper, so let's dive right in.
If you're curious about what the 10th Anniversary iPhone might look like this spring, then there might be some hints in the new iPad Pro. The most enduring iPhone rumours suggest that Apple is coming for the bezel, and the new iPad might just be a precursor to that massacre. Apple has killed the 9.7-inch iPad, but announced a new 10.5-inch iPad, that will have the same footprint with a lot less bezel.
Can you believe Apple's iOS is 11 iterations old already? It seems like just yesterday we were excited about the prospect of an app store, or the ability to select and copy text. At today's WWDC keynote, Apple revealed a host of updates and upgrades to iOS, including many longtime requested features.
Apple's big developer conference, WWDC, is usually not the place for hardware updates, but as Tim Cook said at the beginning of WWDC 2017, "This is the biggest WWDC ever." To that end, Apple announced upgrades to nearly every single product in its computer line up, and thoroughly screwed over every single person who bought a MacBook Pro back in November.
In addition to updated iMacs, MacBooks and MacBook Pros, today at Apple's WWDC conference the company unveiled its new high-end workstation called the iMac Pro, featuring the same all-in-one design, but packed with enough power to make this the most powerful Mac computer to date, claims Apple.
On Tuesday, Apple's annual developer conference, WWDC, kicks off, and that means we will soon learn more about the company's newest and most exciting products. This year, the event runs from June 5 to June 9 (June 6 to June 10 in Australia) and is expected to serve as the launching point for major updates to iOS and macOS, as well as some new hardware.
