Apple Is Trying To Make Your iPhone Less Addictive

Apple knows this (as do its investors), and today it announced three digital-health centric features coming to iPhones and iPads as part of the company's next big mobile OS update, iOS 12.

Currently, Twitter offers news notifications , for those who want to be kept up-to-date on what’s happening around the world. Now the company is expanding on that with personalized updates. This could offer a better option for all those people — including me

Twitter says it may send you a personalized push notification if an event is happening that it believes you ’ll be interested in. Twitter wants to make it easier to find newsworthy Tweets. And any time the words “ news ” and “social network” are within a thousand miles of each other, you have to wonder

Currently, Twitter offers news notifications, for those who want to be kept up-to-date on what’s happening around the world. Now the company is expanding on that with personalized updates. This could offer a better option for all those people — including me — who have opted out of news updates due to them cluttering up their phones with stuff they don’t find interesting.

These notifications would ping you with news based on the kinds of accounts you follow and things you tweet about. Tapping on one will take you to a curated page with related tweets and video on the topic, same as if you found the story on your Explore tab.

Apple introduces the A.I. phone

  Apple introduces the A.I. phone At Apple's WWDC 2018 - an event some said would be boring this year with its software-only focus and lack of new MacBooks and iPads - the company announced what may be its most important operating system update to date, with the introduction of iOS 12. Through a series of Siri enhancements and features, Apple is turning its iPhone into a highly personalized device, powered by its Siri A.I. This "new A.I. iPhone" - which, to be clear, is your same ol' iPhone running a new mobile OS - will understand where you are, what you're doing, and what you need to know right then and there.

It also sent the news , as a notification , to my mentions tab inside the Twitter app. These alerts are personalized , which means you won’t necessarily get the same news push that other users get. It’s obvious to understand why Twitter is using these notifications : It wants to drive user engagement in

The mobile app can send you notifications based on your interests, like the NBA or World Cup. That's why you have the ability to opt out of the new personalized and event news notifications . It'll be up to you to decide how much news you want to consume.

Similarly, you’ll also see curated events on the top of your timeline. These “Happening Now” panels are already used for live sports, but now Twitter is expanding that to include the same personalized news it proposes to notify you about: “At the top of your timeline, you’ll see news that’s relevant to you along with the surrounding Tweets and videos.”

More updates, to roll out in the coming months, put further emphasis on the site’s news credentials. Twitter is also updating its Explore tab to include topics instead of just content type — meaning you could potentially sort your tweets by entertainment, science…dare I hope for a “tech” tab?

At the moment, the greatest drawback of the basic Twitter timeline is the inability to sort tweets into different categories. If you follow certain accounts for news, and some for gossip, and others for humor, then it all gets jumbled together into a big tweet stew. That’s always been both a source of charm and mild frustration. But if the new Explore tab is actually in-depth enough, it’ll be more relevant for most users.

Personalized news notifications will roll out in the coming weeks, while the new Explore tab and Happening Now tweets will roll out in the coming months.

Facebook's Memories is a dedicated spot for nostalgia .
Facebook's On This Day and other nostalgia-driven posts are helpful for reminding you of moments from years past, but they eventually drift out of your News Feed. As you might expect, you can control which moments appear in Memories, so you don't have to relive the pain associated with an ex or the loss of a family member.
