Google Home Needs to Establish Itself Apart from the Echo

The Echo had a two-year market presence before Google Home launched. The two-year gap is quite a challenge for Google Home. But, Google Home is unveiling updates that may as well establish the brand apart from the Echo.

How to Get Automatic Updates in iOS 12

iOS 12 comes with a new feature that makes it very easy for your iPhone to stay up to date. The best thing is this feature is turned on by default in iOS 12—no other action is necessary from your side to get software updates the minute Apple makes them available.
