WWDC 2018: Apple TV 4K gets new features and screensavers with tvOS 12

Apple has previewed tvOS 12, the latest operating system for its Apple TV media box.

With tvOS 12, users can securely AutoFill passwords from iPhone and iPad to Apple TV to easily sign in to Apple TV apps. Additionally, the Apple TV Remote will be automatically added to Control Centre on iPhone or iPad for Apple TV users, giving users quicker access to Apple TV controls.

These aerial screen savers will also be more interactive, allowing viewers to see the location information and swipe between dozens of beautiful aerials.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
