Weekly Issue #28
WWDC 21 full roundup, Android 12 beta 2 and lot more iOS, Android and Cross Platform mobile development content.
The week has been going great with plenty of announcements from WWDC 21. I really loved all the new features in iOS, macOS and iPad OS. But as an honest user, I think I would use only these features in my day-to-day flow:
Focus feature throughout the Apple ecosystem.
Redesigned Safari Tabs
Live Text in Photos
App Library and Widgets on Home Screen on iPadOS
Airplay to Mac
Low power mode on macOS.
Let's talk a bit about Android. Google have released Android 12 beta 2 which includes much needed Privacy Dashboard, Mic and Camera indicators, Microphone & Camera toggles, Clipboard read notification and more intuitive connectivity experience. Read more about Android 12 beta 2 here. It's good to see everyone is moving towards more privacy.
