Google's Gmail controversy is everything people hate about Silicon Valley

  Google's Gmail controversy is everything people hate about Silicon Valley Developers blaming you for not knowing about data collection is why it’s so hard to trust tech right now.Don't like how Facebook shares your data with third-party developers? Too bad, it's right there in the privacy policy. How about how Twitter tracks your activity across websites? The company spelled that out in its data policy. (What? You didn't bother reading it?) And maybe you were upset when you learned last year that Unroll.Me was selling information taken from your email inbox. The company's CEO found that "heartbreaking," but that's how businesses make money from a free service.

After roughly nine months since Apple’s full-screen iPhone X hit the market, Google has at last updated its Inbox email app to support the device. In a 144MB update pushed out on the App Store today, Google says Inbox now supports Apple’s pricier iPhone variant, with little else by way of changes in the update text.

Effectively, this update just removes the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen so it more naturally fits the iPhone X’s display, with its funky 19.5:9 aspect ratio. For months now, users have been complaining about the lack of support, and Google acknowledged it was working on it back in April following the Gmail redesign.

This isn’t all about Google listening to users who’ve been clamoring for edge-to-edge support for Inbox for months. Rather, it’s likely that the company is abiding by Apple’s new iOS 11 requirement, effective this month, that “all iOS app updates submitted to the App Store must be built with the iOS 11 SDK and must support the Super Retina display of iPhone X.” Still, it’s nice to see the iOS version of Inbox get the love it deserves, even if its still missing key features like an “all inboxes” view, which it has on Android.

How To Free Up Space On Your iPhone .
iOS. So you’re running out of space on your iPhone. Perhaps you’ve been unable to download that new movie you purchased to your device because there’s no room. Maybe your iPhone has popped up the dreaded “Storage Almost Full” warning. However you were notified that you were running low on space is irrelevant: Your iPhone is filling up and you should probably look into that sooner, when it’s less critical to do so, than at a later point when you really need to do something and can’t.
