We have already had the official launch of the three operating systems – iOS 12, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12, as well as the release of the Shortcuts app. Now, let’s list some updates from Apple apps that are also popping up today.
Although macOS Mojave will only be released in a week (on 9/24), Apple has already launched today for users of macOS High Sierra and macOS Sierra the Safari 12.
The upgrade to Safari 12 is recommended for all users and contains privacy, compatibility and security improvements. This update:
- Adds the ability to view website icons in tabs;
- Automatically suggest and fill in a unique and strong password when creating an account or changing a password;
- Flag passwords reused in Safari Preferences;
- Adds compatibility for allowing or blocking pop-ups on specific websites;
- Prevents integrated content and social media buttons from crawling between sites without permission;
- To suppress ad redirection, it reduces advertisers’ ability to uniquely identify Mac devices;
- Automatically disables Safari extensions that negatively affect browsing performance;
- To improve security, only old Safari extensions that have been reviewed by Apple are supported;
- To improve security, only compatibility with most NPAPI plug-ins has been discontinued.
That’s right, much of Safari’s new features in Mojave are now available without even having to update macOS.
