How to back up and prepare your iPhone prior to installing iOS 13

iOS 13 adds a dark mode to your iPhone, and much more. 

You don't have to have one of Apple's new iPhone 11s to get iOS 13. On Thursday, Apple will release iOS 13 for iPhone and iPod Touch owners. The software update brings with it plenty of new features, including a dedicated dark mode, a new swipe keyboard and a revamped Photos app (complete with video editing tools). But before you anxiously begin tapping that update button, there are a few things you should do on your iPhone to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible. 

You don't want to be one of those people posting on Facebook that iOS 13 lost your contacts and you need phone numbers -- there's no reason for that to happen in 2019. 

Take a few minutes right now and do some fall cleaning, then create a backup of your iPhone; just in case. Then after you've done all of that, install iOS 13

Firefox Launches Browser-Based VPN: How to Try It Now

Mozilla is publicly beta-testing its own browser-based VPN-like service, and if you're a U.S. resident, you can get in on the action.

The service, officially called the Firefox Private Network, is free to use (for now) to anyone based in the United States with a Firefox account and the desktop Firefox browser (Windows, Mac or Linux). To try it out, go to https://private-network.firefox.com/ and install the browser extension.

The Firefox Private Network is not a true VPN, and to its credit, Firefox doesn't call it one. The service will encrypt only the web traffic handled by the Firefox browser on your desktop. Unlike true VPN services, it won't secure the data handled by other internet-facing applications such as email clients, Spotify or online games.

Nor will the service let you watch streaming video from overseas, as it doesn't let you choose from which country to appear to be connecting to online services. We logged onto Netflix while connected the Firefox Private Network, but got just the regular old U.S. version of the streaming service.

Facebook's dating service is launching in the US

The company said that its matchmaking service, Dating, is finally launching in the United States on Thursday, more than a year after the company first announced the feature.

If that sounds unusually slow for the company that once famously had the motto "move fast and break things," you're right.

"We've been really slow, actually, with this rollout," Charmaine Hung, a product manager at Facebook Dating, told CNN Business. "We really wanted to make sure we got it right because dating is so personal."

The US is now the 20th country to have access to Dating. The feature allows anyone with a Facebook account who is 18 or older to set up a dating profile from within the Facebook mobile app.

Facebook's decision to move into the dating space may strike some as brazen or tone deaf. For more than a year, the social media company has come under fire for its data privacy practices, most notably with the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Now Facebook is asking users to trust it with one of the most intimate activities they do online: search for love.
