Another day, another trio of popular and / or prominent applications in the App Store is receiving interesting updates. Shall we take a look at them?
NBA 2K Mobile Basketball
If you followed the presentation of the new iPad Pro on Apple’s most recent keynote, you certainly remember the phrase, indeed repeated later, that tablets have a graphic power similar to that of Xbox One S. To demonstrate the statement, Apple showed in the event a game update NBA 2K Mobile Basketball running on the device. This update is now available.
The mechanics of the game remain the same and allow you to participate in local or online matches of 5 × 5 players, incorporating more than 400 NBA figures and training your character towards the stardom of the basketball world. It is unclear whether the new graphics “comparable to video game consoles” will be exclusive to the new iPad Pro or will also reach other devices – the game is compatible with iPhone 6s and higher, iPad Air 2, iPads of fifth and sixth generations, and iPad mini 4, in addition to all versions of the iPad Pro.
NBA 2K Mobile Basketball is available for free on the App Store, with in-app purchases that unlock all its features.
Following the wave of photos with blurred and / or discolored backgrounds, the Google Photos for iOS is currently receiving an update – which was already available on Android since last month, it is worth noting – that allows the adjustment of these visual vignettes in your images later.
Starting today, you can have more control over your portrait photos. Use our new depth editor to adjust the background blur and change the focus in just a few taps.

Starting today, you can have more control over your portrait photos. Use our new depth editor to adjust the background blur and change the focus in just a few taps. It works with portrait photos taken on the Pixel 2, Pixel 3 and some Motorola phones, such as the Moto G6.
THE tweet above is when the feature came to Android; on iOS, it works with all iPhones with Portrait Mode – that is, iPhones 7 Plus, 8 Plus, X, XR, XS and XS Max. You can adjust how blurred the background of your photo is, touch somewhere to define the focus location and still use the black and white background feature (which Apple does not offer).
Google Photos for iOS can be downloaded and updated for free on the App Store.
We already talked here about the RAW Power, a powerful raw photo editor for iOS and macOS. Now, the developers of Gentlemen Coders have released a good update for applications on both platforms.
On iOS, the application has been updated with support for the screens of the new iPad Pro and several new tools – the main one being the ability to edit / process photos in batches, so you can apply adjustment to multiple images in a single action. New adjustments are also available, such as chromatic aberration, perspective and black and white.
In macOS, the app also gained batch processing tools and new adjustments; slider controls for light and depth also give the user more power when defining the final look of their photos. We also have support for tabs and macOS Mojave Dark Mode.
RAW Power for iOS costs $ 11 with in-app purchases that unlock extra features; the version for macOS, in turn, costs R $ 103 already complete. Updates are free for those who have previously purchased apps.
