The redesigned Google Calendar for web is infinitely prettier

Image
Google launched a redesigned version of Google Calendar on the web today. The calendar looks way more modern with larger date icons, updated colors, and cleaner event boxes. It basically looks more like the mobile application.
As for functionality, Google focuses on improvements for business users. Admins can now add details about conference rooms, so employees know how large they are, whether they're wheelchair accessible, and whether they have AV equipment. People can also link to spreadsheets, documents, and presentations in their calendar invites so attendees can open them directly from the "event detail" view. You can get an idea of that here:
Google Google also incorporated a bunch of smaller changes that might be impactful if you're in your calendar a lot or often coordinate with other people. Users can now view multiple calendars on the "day" view, for easier comparison and booking. They can also hover over participants' names to view thei…

Microsoft's Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is here and ready to download. The software giant first started testing its Fall Creators Update back in April, and now all Windows 10 users will be able to experience the improvements today. Just like previous updates, Microsoft is rolling it out in stages, and you can check whether it's available for your own PC from Windows Update. If your device is eligible then it will start downloading in the background, and a prompt will appear to schedule a time to install.

iOS 11 Update Now Available For iPhones And iPads

Image
About a week ago Apple confirmed that the iOS 11 update would be released on the 19th of September, and sure enough it has. For those who own compatible iOS devices, you will be pleased to learn that the update will be available for download today, so you can wait for your iOS device to prompt you, or you can go to your phone's Settings -> General -> Software Update and try and pull it manually.
However if you don't see it yet, you might have to wait since we expect that the rollout to all the markets around the world could take a while, so maybe give it a couple of hours and try again, but regardless its availability is still set for today. iOS 11 is the latest iOS update for iPhones and iPads and is the successor to last year's iOS 10.
It will introduce a bunch of new features, such as a redesigned Control Center, a redesigned App Store, a new file manager (finally) that will allow iOS users to better manage their files, and there's even a new Do Not D…

Apple Releases iTunes 12.7 With Major Changes, Including No Built-In App Store

Image
In a day filled with surprises, Apple has shocked us once again with the release of iTunes 12.7, which entirely revamps the iTunes App. The new iTunes is designed to focus solely on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts, and audiobooks, which means there is no built-in App Store.


The App Store has been entirely eliminated in iTunes 12.7, as has the ringtones section of iTunes. Internet Radio is now part of Music, and iTunes U has been folded into Podcasts, as Apple announced in late August.


Apps can now only be downloaded on an iOS device using an iOS device, and the same goes for ringtones. In addition to the removal of the App Store, today's update adds support for syncing iOS 11 devices and includes support for new Apple Music features that allow you to follow friends and see what they're listening to.
