Learn to code for iOS 12 and join this giveaway to win the new iPhone XS

This iPhone XS could be yours for *free.* (Well okay, not this one exactly, but you know what we mean.)

The hype surrounding the hotly-anticipated iOS 12 has simmered down a bit, but only because it's finally been released and people are too busy tinkering with their iPhones to tweet. (We're guessing.)


Unlike the previous iOS updates, tech critics and casual users are touting iOS 12 as the fastest yet, and get this — even on older phones. Yup, after what seemed like an eternity, it looks to be that the iPhone slowdown fiasco is finally over.


This only means that developers can use this moment as an opportunity to ramp up on app development and take advantage of the enhanced speed and feature upgrades of the new operating system. If you want to get in on the frenzy, these training bundles will help you get familiarized with iOS 12 update so you can start writing your own apps:

Led by top-rated instructor Rob Percival, this 167-lecture course will guide you through the essentials like Swift 4 and Xcode 10 and help you develop practical skills by letting you build several projects for iOS 12, including clones of Uber and Instagram. You'll explore programming fundamentals like variables, arrays, and loops, and dive into iOS 12's AR features with ARKit. Even if you have no idea what those terms are and have never written a line of code before, the easy-to-follow lessons could very well help you become a programming master.

The Essential iOS 12 Development Bundle

Not only does this learning suite arm you with the skills to develop programs for the iPhone, but it will also teach you how to create apps for watchOS *and* macOS. There are also courses dedicated to UX/UI design, so you can make your apps look beautiful, functional, and user-friendly. After you've finished the training, you'll have all the tools needed to craft apps for different Apple platforms from scratch.
You didn't think we'd let you build an app meant for iOS 12 and not give you the chance to test it on the newest iPhone now did you? We're not rude.


Head on over to the Mashable Shop, enter your email address, sign up, and you're in the running to get your hands on the latest Apple device — AKA the 512GB iPhone XS in Space Gray. If you want to earn more chances of winning, there's a referral link you can share with your friends, family, colleagues, and your next door neighbor you haven't spoken to in years. And when they sign up using your link, you’ll get extra entries. You have until Nov. 27. Go get after it.

Yes, the LG V40 really has five cameras

The LG V40: Three cameras on the back, two on the front.

It's official: LG's upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG V40, has three cameras on the back and two on the front.

Though the official announcement of the phone is due Oct. 3, the company revealed some details about the phone — including photos and a video — on its Korean website


Interestingly, although the cameras are featured prominently in all these promo materials, LG hasn't revealed their specs. 

What we did find out, though, is the size of the phone's screen: It'll be 6.4 inches. The phone will be the same width as its 6-inch predecessor, the LG V30; the company claims it increased the screen size within the same form factor by reducing the size of the bezels.  The phone will be available in three colors: gray, red, and blue, and we get a glimpse of all three in the promo video (above). LG says it sandblasted the phone's rear glass to achieve a "silky feel," hence all the references to softnes…

Google Gboard test makes finding a relevant GIF even faster

The whole point of Google's Gboard is to help you find relevant items without leaving your phone's keyboard, but how do you know there's something useful available while you're casually typing away? You might get a clue soon enough. Android Police has learned that Google is testing a smarter Gboard search feature that changes the distinctive "G" button when there's a relevant GIF, info or sticker search for what you're typing. Punch in "works for me" and you may see a sticker icon, while typing a famous name may show a magnifying glass to indicate that there's an info card. Tap the button and you'll search for the material without having to retype a thing. Google appears to have been testing this Gboard update since July and might not roll out the feature soon (or at all). However, the test recently widened to include more users. If Google likes the feature, it might just be a matter of time before the keyboard is smart enough to ha…

This audacious curved-screen wearable has a gaudy camera

Just as Google is making Wear OS feel less like a smartphone system squeezed onto a watch, ZTE spinoff Nubia wants to slap a full phone on your wrist. At IFA 2018, the company unveiled a prototype device called the Nubia-A, which it's touting as a "wearable smartphone". That, to me, means smartwatch, but given the way companies like Apple, Google and Qualcomm seem to be moving away from wrist-worn smartphone wannabes, my definition might be inaccurate soon. Feast your eyes on this fascinating oddity, though you might want to avoid looking directly at the monstrous onboard camera.


Meet the Nubia-a "wearable smartphone" | 16 Photos



Wacky as the idea of the Nubia-A sounds, it's at least intriguing as proof that a curved screen can work, at least based on what I saw at its booth. It's Nubia's proprietary Flex display and was bright, colorful and easy to read, even at spots where it was bending around the model wrist. I wasn't allowed to touch the de…
