The week in apps: Apple’s new App Store, Google Maps extra help, and more essentials – Mashable

Apple’s new update has decided to finally include GIF into its usability. Hilarious that it took so long, or is it a relief for customers that a company that is supposed to be up to date has allowed their consumers to join loved ones in their community to play with their GIFs to their heart’s content?

Key Takeaways:

  • Apple announced a flurry of new updates and improvements to their products at WWDC at the beginning of the week.
  • One big new feature coming with the iOS 11 update that’s being rolled out in the fall is a brand new App Store.
  • The Today tab will become the homepage of the app, with info everyday on the newest and most popular apps. The Apps tab will show the other apps available and Game will show games (pretty self-explanatory).

“Google Chrome stepped up its game this week. With Version 58.0.0, users are now able to manage in-progress downloads, more easily clear browsing history, and long-press a link to open it in a new Chrome tab.”
