With iOS 12, Apple says updates won't slow your iPhone anymore

Some of the other changes and new features that Apple has introduced in iOS 12 include new Animoji options which introduces the koala, tiger, ghost, and T. rex. Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, unveiled iOS 12, the latest version of the software powering the iPhone and iPad. iOS 12 should be available later this year as a free update compatible with the same range of devices that can run iOS 11. However, Apple users typically upgrade to new software releases more quickly than Android users, exposing them to Apple's latest apps and services, which generate revenue for the iPhone maker as well as app developers.

Along similar lines, the iPhone's Do Not Disturb will now let users mute incoming notifications overnight, for an hour, or while at a specific location. You can now also group notifications with iOS 12. Yes. Apple said Siri will suggest to call people if your calendar knows it is their birthday, or remind you to turn off notifications when you're at the movies.

It was a significant moment, then, when Apple declared that its Safari browser on Mac would include new privacy features to stop users from being tracked - and demonstrated the feature by showing Facebook on screen. Many Apple iPhone X users have been complaining that Face ID's single face support is limiting.

Apple on Monday previewed new controls for limiting how much time customers spend on their devices as the company tackles criticism that its devices are becoming increasingly addictive and distracting. First up, it launched the Google Family Link app past year, which lets parents lock their child's device, set screen time limits, and approve/reject Play Store downloads. Apple plans to instead send out generic data to such collectors, making a user's device look just like any other Apple device.

And the Apple Watch's new operating system continues Apple's quest to make it a teeny little phone.

Meanwhile in January, two of Apple's major shareholders, Jana Partners LLC and the California State Teachers' Retirement System, who own a $US2 billion stake in Apple, published an open letter asking the company to address the issue of phone addiction among children. Even though it isn't as big as one would have expected, key new features such as notification group, shortcuts for iOS, search on Photos, and all the digital health features make up for an update that seems quite promising. It will be possible to group notifications from same app into one notification and customise notifications from the lock screen. You'll also be able to dismiss them as a group.

FaceTime will soon be able to support video chats with up to 32 people.

Another AR addition is new app Measure.

At WWDC 2018, Apple announced updates to iOS 12 that will make Siri a better business assistant via app Shortcuts.

Using the new Siri Shortcuts app, iPhone owners can build customized actions for Siri to perform upon hearing a given command.

iOS 12 will be available in public beta later in June, and will be generally available in the fall. Dark mode will be optimal for viewing your computer in a dark room or at night, but it can also be useful for editing photos or other creative projects.
