Microsoft let it be known almost in passing that its Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming will be rolling out to web browsers in the next few weeks. That includes Safari, which will become Xbox Cloud Gaming's gate pass into iPhones and iPads, something Stadia has yet to achieve.

Apple WebKit vulnerability remains open on iOS and macOS

Bugs in software aren't exactly out of the ordinary, even bugs that can compromise the security of a system. Of course, those get fixed eventually but some bugs are time-sensitive and their patches need to be rolled out as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, one security researcher points out that Apple may not see one such vulnerability as an urgent matter as it hasn't rolled out a fix to iOS and macOS that would plug up a WebKit bug that not only causes Safari to crash but also leaves a door open for attackers to exploit.

Google Stadia makes its long-awaited iOS debut: How to get streaming

Google Stadia makes its long-awaited iOS debut: How to get streaming

Last month, Google said that it was testing an iOS implementation of Google Stadia. At one point in the past, we thought we'd never see Stadia come to iOS, as restrictive App Store rules made launching a game streaming service technically possible but realistically challenging. Thankfully, the iOS version of Stadia sidesteps the App Store entirely, launching as a Safari webapp instead.

iOS 14 Safari to get built-in translation, better Apple Pencil support

iOS 14 Safari to get built-in translation, better Apple Pencil support

The Internet has made the world a smaller place but, unless you've taken time to learn multiple languages, chances are you'll come across pages that are incomprehensible to you. Translation tools and browser add-ons do exist, of course, but, in typical Apple fashion, Safari will soon have the ability to translate a page without requiring an extra package or, worse, exposing your data to third parties or even Apple itself.

iOS 13 Safari’s Safe Browsing reportedly sending some data to Tencent

The Web has become a bigger place and, at the same time, has also become more dangerous.

One such feature is called Safe Browsing and has become enabled by default in iOS 13 with every little warning beforehand. Now it turns out that this feature is sending some information, particularly IP addresses to Google and to Chinese Internet giant Tencent.

Apple Safari to have tracking protection that could break some sites

Apple Safari to have tracking protection that could break some sites

Web browsers, particularly Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, have lately taken stronger actions against unscrupulous, not to mention potentially illegal, tracking by websites and third parties. Curiously silent is one browser maker who has painted itself as the champion of privacy in the modern digital and tech world. Apple, however, was simply waiting for the right moment to announce its own new policy against the misuse of tracking and cookies. But while it might be the harshest and strictest policy among web browsers, it could also be one of those that breaks the Internet the most for users.
