Last week in tech: iOS 12, Screentime, and everything else Apple announced at WWDC 2018

The Keynote at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers conference gives us a look into the year ahead when it comes to Apple software. This year’s event gave us a look at what’s next for the iPhones, iPads, and Macs we already have in our pockets and on our desks. There were a ton of new announcements in the presentation which went well past its typical two-hour run time. Luckily, we watched the whole thing and have you covered.

The best way to catch up on all the Apple stuff is to check out the latest episode of our podcast. You can check it out in the player embedded above, subscribe on iTunes, add us on Stitcher, or follow us on SoundCloud.

There’s also a full rundown here of all the new announcements about iOS 12, MacOS Mojave, WatchOS 5, and more. Even if you’re not an Apple fan, this new stuff will probably affect your smartphone and laptop usage in the next 12 months, so go check it out.

Here are some of the other stories you may have missed last week.

Microsoft bought GitHub for $7.5 billion

MICROSOFT BUILT GITHUB

Consider this a wedding invitation. You missed the wedding. It was last week.

Microsoft.

Stealing even a little bit of Apple’s thunder on a keynote day is a tricky thing, but Microsoft did so by scooping up GitHub. The site is a web repository that stores and tracks developers’ code as they make changes to it. It’s an open-source platform, which allows for collaboration between coders. Judging by some of Microsoft’s previous acquisitions like Minecraft and LinkedIn, there’s hope that the company will let the service run as it has while offering some improved support.
