Apple has released the new iOS 12.4 update to the public just recently. Much like prior updates, this new iOS update also introduces some new features for the Apple smartphone. Improvements on the migration tool and other features have been found so far.

Improved Migration Tool

The new iOS update makes it easier for users to transfer their files from older iPhones to their current devices. The whole feature is a wireless process which makes it convenient as long as the connection is made.

Better Apple News+

Proving true to Apple’s plan to push out more services, improvements to the Apple News+ app is also found in the iOS 12.4 update. All magazine issues installed in the device can be found in the My Magazines section. Clearing magazines is also possible through simply clearing the history.

Walkie-Talkie App fix

Prior to this update, the Walkie-Talkie app in Apple Watch devices was discovered to be operational even though it was disabled. The problem would allow eavesdropping which could be a breach of privacy for its owners. Users can now rely on this app once more as Apple confirms that it’s already fixed.

No Apple Card

Among the new services that Apple is introducing, the Apple Card service was supposed to be found in the iOS 12.4 update. The Apple Card is the company’s own credit card service which can be used through the iOS device itself. For now, we’ll have to wait for Apple to announce new details to know when will this service be available soon.

As of now, Apple has yet to announce any details with any of their upcoming services and devices to be released. Many of their announced apps are scheduled for release this late 2019. Fans will have to wait until September and the latter months of the year to see all of them released.

In other news, Apple has also released the beta of the macOS Catalina. While the beta offers new features to the Mac computers, it also has a chance to make files unreadable due to not supporting 32-bit apps and files anymore.
