Microsoft Search taps your personal results to battle Google

Today Microsoft Search was introduced - or re-introduced - with an eye on searching everywhere, in all things, at all times.

iPhone XS, XS Max LTE speed tests show massive gains

Some might not think of the iPhone XS, particularly the smaller one, as a big step forward in terms of design but it’s hard to deny that it’s a massive leap in terms of the things that you don’t see. For one, there’s the new A12 Bionic processor. But there’s one more that even more invisible but palpably felt the moment you start streaming videos.

While that is in the past, there are still other parts of Apple’s ecosystem that remain closed off to other players unless they’re to concede some ground to Apple. One of those is CarPlay, which can only use Apple Maps for its navigation. That’s changing in iOS 12 and now Google Maps has a beta that reveals just what it had to do to get in.
