As usual, whenever Apple releases updates to its core software (iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS), it also releases a new version of Xcode, which focuses on app development.

In addition, the app gained second-generation Touch Bar support (from the 16-inch MacBook Pro, with its separate Esc key and Touch ID) to simulate interactive keyboard animations.

Adobe Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom: Edit Photos app icon

Adobe has announced that Lightroom for iOS is gaining a new feature that allows the user import photos directly to the app on iPhones and iPads. The news had been released last month, but only now has been definitively deployed in the application.

So when you connect a Lightning to SD or Lightning to USB 3.0 adapter to iPhone (or a USB-C card reader to iPad), you can import RAW files directly into Lightroom without having to make an extra copy in the Photos app. from iOS which cost time and of course storage. Once imported directly into Lightroom, images can be edited immediately and saved to Creative Cloud on all your connected devices in your Adobe account.

In addition, the app has also gained new export features and enhancements for shared albums. With advanced export options, you can now select file type, pixel dimensions, compression, watermark, and an option to export multiple files simultaneously, among others.

Google Chrome

Google Chrome app icon

The Mountain View giant's browser has been updated on both mobile and notebook / desktop platforms with a very interesting new feature: credential leak check.

If it finds that your identity has been leaked, the browser will immediately suggest that you change your password on all sites where it was used. The feature was first introduced as an extension of Google earlier this year; shortly thereafter, she integrated Google's password manager and is now a native Chrome feature.

The desktop version also gained another very important security feature: protection against phishing In real time. Previously, Chrome had a 30-minute window between each scan, which caused multiple sites to pass the browser filter; With the update, users will be notified with even more emphasis on malicious websites.

In addition, Chrome now also protects your passwords even if the browser sync feature is disabled. Still thinking about your security, it now better displays profile information on devices shared by more than one person, helping users not save information to the wrong account. According to the company, the change is only visual and does not interfere with synchronization settings.

TV Time

TV Time app icon: Follow Series & Movie

The tool for organizing TV Time movies and series has also been recently updated but changes are more static than functional. So now the app automatically syncs between Light and Dark Mode according to iPhone / iPad settings.

To enable / disable the option, just open the app and go to: Profile Settings App. If you want to disable auto sync, you can select one of the two themes as default.

For those interested, we recently made a video showing all the details of the app:

Personally, I can leave the house without my National Driver's License (CNH) if I have my iPhone. The Digital Traffic Wallet app is a very simple tool and can be very important to save you in a moment of need. But it was time for the app to get a makeover, and that's exactly what the Federal Data Processing Service (Serpro) did with the app.

Digital Traffic Wallet

In addition to a very intuitive new design, the app has gained a new "Notifications" section where the user can check some important information about your wallet and / or vehicle (if you are in a supported state to include CRLV data), such as recall it's the CNH maturity.

The option was already being used on iPhones and iPads, but has now expanded to all compatible devices.

Mac Drafts

As such, Drafts for Mac now includes the following action groups: Basic, Editing, Remarking, Tools, and Processing. There is also action for Drafts, by which you can find a repository of add-ons to further integrate with other apps.
