Apple is announcing a number of tech salvos, designed to beef up the company’s main arsenal. The latest moves will target all four major platforms, namely the iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. The tech giant’s latest iOS update will target privacy and security. The upcoming software will limit Accelerator and Gyroscope Access in its Apple Safari, the company’s web browser.

According to Apple Insider, advertising companies are getting worried about this latest action, which allows Safari users to block websites requesting access to the device’s motion sensor.

Apple has come under fire from various ad agencies after the release of this huge update. However, the Cupertino-based company explains that they’re doing this for privacy reasons, for the protection of their users.

In addition, the latest update also introduces a new Motion and Orientation Access features. This new addition can be found in the Safari’s Setting under the Privacy & Security category. Toggled off by default, the new Motion, and Orientation Access features must be turned on first by the user in order for websites to access the precious motion sensor data from the device’s gyroscope and accelerator.

Announces some changes on macOS

The tech giant this week released the second beta of an upcoming macOS Mojave 10.14.4 update to the developers’ community. The release of the second beta followed the release of the first macOS Mojave 10.14.4 update, which was introduced to the public two weeks ago.

As mentioned by the tech-focused website MacRumors, the latest update macOS Mojave 10.14.4 beta can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism under the System Preferences. But before the user can download this update they need to install first the proper profile from Apple’s Developer Center.

This latest beta update also brings Apple News to Canadian Mac users, allowing the Canadians to access news stories in both French and English languages. The latest beta update also added support for Safari AutoFill using Apple TouchID and automatic dark mode themes in Apple Safari web browser.

The new macOS Mojave 10.14.4 will likely remain in beta stage for the next couple of days as Apple continues its painstaking work in refining features and addressing bugs. Once the task has been completed, the new macOS will be released alongside tvOS 12.2, watchOS 5.2 and iOS 12.2, the website reported.

Beef up watchOS platform

The tech giant has finally released to the developers’ world the second beta of the company’s upcoming watchOS 5.2 update. The move followed the release of the first watchOS 5.2 beta, which was released just two weeks ago. To get and install this latest update, the Apple Watch will need to have at least 50 percent battery power. It also must be placed on the charger and within range of the iPhone device. Users will learn more about the new features when they visit the Apple iOS blog site.

Released the second beta of the upcoming tvOS 12.2 update

The tech giant’s salvo continues with the release of the second beta of the company’s upcoming tvOS 12.2 updates. As mentioned in the company’s iOS blog site, the new beta release has been designed for the fourth and fifth-generation of Apple TV models. The new beta update will be able to pair with iOS 12.2 allowing a user to ask the digital assistant Siri to play specific media on the Apple TV from any iOS-powered device. The features reportedly work on both music and TV contents.

There are not many new features added to this new beta release. The company hasn’t yet provided release notes for the tvOS beta update. Blasting News will update this story once additional features are announced to the public. Stay tuned for more Apple updates.
