But the game studio is now saying Apple has given Epic an “indefinite extension” on supporting “Sign In with Apple” for Epic Games accounts.
Epic is still recommending that users “prepare your accounts” for a potential removal of “Sign In with Apple,” however, and continues to promote an explainer on its site showing how to change your login...

If you currently use “Sign In with Apple” for your Epic account, Epic says you’ll need to update your account with new login credentials before September 11th to retain access. Epic has put together a guide on how to make that update if you need to do so. Epic also says that it may be able to recover your account manually after the “Sign in with Apple” option goes away, but you’ll have to contact the studio directly.

Apple on Tuesday released iOS 13.7, adding support for a new exposure notification system for powering COVID-19 tracking.

This native support was expected, as it was announced when the exposure notification API — developed collaboratively between Apple and Google — was revealed in April. But at the time, we didn’t know exactly when it would arrive.

You can turn on Google Chrome's "dark mode" to make browsing easier on your eyes and conserve battery on your device.
Windows, Mac, and iPhone devices have their own dark mode settings, which will make Google Chrome open in dark mode when activated. Only Android allows you to update Google Chrome from directly within Chrome's settings.
You can also install an extension or theme that will let you put Google Chrome into dark mode on your own, or browse Chrome in "incognito mode."

Dark mode is all the rage nowadays, and it seems like every app has it. After all, browsing in dark mode is both easier on the eyes, and lets the content of every website stand out more.
However, making Google Chrome go into dark mode isn't as easy as some other apps. On most devices, there's no switch you can flip, or box you can check off.
Instead, to use dark mode in Chrome, you'll have to either edit your device's settings, download an extension or theme, or browse in incognito mode.
Here's how to do all of these, and start browsing in dark mode in Chrome on your Mac, PC, iPhone, or Android.

How to turn on dark mode in Google Chrome using an extension or theme
One of the best things about Google Chrome is that if you find a feature it's missing, there's a good chance you can add that feature yourself with an extension or theme.
There are several extensions and many themes that will make Google Chrome display in dark mode. To find them, you'll need to head to the Google Chrome Web Store and search for "dark mode."
Once you do, you have a lot of options. Here are some examples.
The extension "Dark Theme for Chrome" will give you a button that, when clicked, will change the colors on any webpage so white becomes black, black becomes white, and more. You can change the exact colors at any time.
"Material Incognito Dark Theme" will immediately darken your toolbars, but won't change anything on the websites you browse. You can edit your themes whenever you like.
Search for the extension or theme you like best.
