Flutter, Google’s vision for cross-OS app-making, hits Release Preview 1

Google has let Flutter Release Preview 1 into the wild, giving developers the chance to get to grips wth its cross-platform mobile SDK for apps that run just as happily on iOS as they do on Android. The goal, Google says, is straightforward: it makes more sense for developers to build a single app and then have that automatically export in versions for iPhone and Android, especially as new platforms come down the pipe.

Inching closer to its massive Fall rollout, Apple released the second developer beta of all of its four operating systems. Of course, most of the new features have already been revealed at WWDC earlier this month so there are few surprises here, if any. That said, it’s still reassuring to see those promised features come to life and hopefully remain there as developers help hunt bugs and iron out the kinks.

Siri is about to leave Alexa, Google Assistant in the dust

At WWDC earlier this month, Apple showed it still had some fight left. It introduced Siri Shortcuts and, more than just catching up with third-party integration, it’s going to change the game that will hopefully make smart assistant even smarter. But probably not before it shames its rivals.

Apple has very strict rules for what apps are allowed on its iOS app store. One of those is that the app shouldn't offer its own marketplace, be it for other apps or even digital content. That is the reality that Amazon has faced with its Kindle app and that is the same reality Valve will now have to face. That is, if it wants its Steam Link game streaming app to be allowed back into the App Store for good.

Cops, hackers claim to have defeated iOS 12 USB Restricted Mode

Apple and authorities play a non-ending game of cat and mouse (we leave you to decide which is which) when it comes to iPhones. Apple closes security holes and makes it harder for anyone to compromise an iPhone or an iPad. Law enforcement, on the other hand, are constantly looking for ways to break into encrypted devices in the name of justice. The latter group now has a helping hand in the form of forensic hackers like Grayshift who say that they have already found a way around Apple’s upcoming security feature.
