9 hidden iOS 13 features you need to know about

TwitterFacebook

iOS 13 is going to be a whale of an update, available for free this fall for iPhone SE, 6S, and newer models. It comes with much heralded features like a system-wide dark mode, redesigned Photos app, new Memoji customizations, and more. 

But as with previous versions of iOS, the software update also has a whole bunch of lesser-known features that aren’t as flashy but are greatly welcome. Here are the eight we’re most excited for — and one that we wish Apple would take back.

Tesla owners, prepare to be entertained.

First up is the game Cuphead, which Tesla announced earlier this month as an addition to the gaming options…

TwitterFacebook

Byton was the darling of CES last year, showing off its never-ending dashboard screen and other touchscreens on practically every surface of the Chinese’s company first all-electric car, the M-Byte. Now we know that nearly all designs from the prototype car will actually be made, including that massive 48-inch end-to-end screen up front.

This week Byton showed an interior glimpse into the final design of the cars as the first electric SUVs are made in China. The $45,000-starting-price car…

Mike Bithell can’t believe he’s making the ‘John Wick’ prequel game either

TwitterFacebook

“‘Well, you wouldn’t do a third-person shooter because it’d be kind of boring, and it wouldn’t let you think like John Wick. You’d have to make something where it’s about thinking. So, I guess it’s like a strategy game?’” 

Leaving a movie theater with games producer and friend Ben Andac, indie developer Mike Bithell pitched an off-the-cuff premise for a combat game. It would be a tactical puzzler, possibly turn-based, dedicated to unpacking the marvelous mind of Bithell’s favorite on-screen…

Netflix’s ‘Always Be My Maybe’ is a victory for authentic representation

TwitterFacebook

As Mashable’s Proma Khosla noted in her review of Netflix’s Always Be My Maybe, it might be a wonderful thing to live in a world so inclusive that an Asian-American-lead rom-com supported by a staff of powerful women isn’t doomed to withstand endless questions on inequality and discrimination for the entirety of its press tour.

And yet, here we are. 

In spite of promising data from the 2018 box office, the average film is still far from diverse on-screen, and even less inclusive

TwitterFacebook

Vehicular commuters who rely on Google Maps just got a useful new feature.

Or, to be more precise, more of them in more places got a useful new feature. Google has begun rolling out speed limit and speed camera indicators in Google Maps. The feature is available in at least 40 countries around the world now, according to TechCrunch.

The idea is pretty simple: If you’re driving on a road with Google Maps open, it’ll display the speed limit in a corner of the screen. It’ll also let you know…
