Apple will present its new software platforms tomorrow, June 7, at the opening of WWDC 2021. Meanwhile, information about upcoming updates continues to accumulate on the network.
This time, enthusiasts have found mentions of new features for the new Apple Watch, which will become part of the watchOS 8 platform, in developer code on the App Store.
In particular, a completely new Mind application is mentioned, which will become available not only on smartwatches, but also on the iPhone. Presumably, this app will help you monitor your mental health and will include meditation, breathing exercises and relaxing music.
There are also indications of separate applications Tips (Tips) and Contact (Contacts), created specifically for smartwatches. Another potential innovation is the extension of the FindMy (Locator) function on the watch. If watchOS now only allows you to find friends, then in the future it is possible to search for AirTag beacons.
Apple has already announced that WWDC 2021 will kick off on June 7th. It is on this day that the announcement of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 is expected, as well as macOS 12, tvOS 15 and watchOS 8.
Popular Action Launcher Android skin gets more free features
Action Launcher is a fairly popular shell for the Android operating system among paid ones. The developers have released Action Launcher v50, which has many more free features for those who do not want to pay for such features.
The app has gone through a lot of improvements over the years to keep up with some of the key improvements made by Google. However, in recent times there has been more and more criticism that the free basic version had a minimum number of features.
The Action Launcher’s implementation of the Freemium system has historically been terrible. We pushed people too aggressively to buy the Plus upgrade, which turned off so many people, and the app was hardly interesting for non-paying users.
Action Launcher v50 is suitable for everyone whether you pay or not. The new version offers an improved search engine that uses the Pixel Launcher. Action search gives you the best results on the web and on your device, as well as some action launcher settings that can be toggled right from the home screen.
In addition to action search and other free features, the action launcher’s own settings are changed. The app adds a settings search bar as well as shortcuts to recently changed settings.
