Apple reveals iOS 12 - The big upgrades

Share

Here's a look at some of the standouts from Apple's WWDC. Of course, some people have things like jobs and other pesky obligations that might prevent them from focusing on an Apple event for several hours.

Apple is also including more robust "Stop Looking At Your Phone" features, such as an upgrade to "Do Not Disturb" mode that shuts off all notifications at bedtime. The company said the operating system would work on the same devices as iOS 11, a range of products that date back to 2013. Does the next version of macOS pack any exciting and innovative features? Though little is known about watchOS 5 and tvOS 12.

The Photos app will look nearly the same, but a number of changes under the hood should make searching within the app much more powerful. Read on for answers to all those questions and more from WWDC 2018.

Apple also discussed privacy in announcing its new macOS Mojave.

iOS 12 Beta 1 is available for developers - or anyone else who is keen to take a look - to download via the Apple Developer Program portal. Check out all of the details right here in our earlier coverage.

Apple even demonstrated that ARKit could reveal the interior of a physical set and apply animations to make it come alive within the virtual scene.

The inclusion of ARKit 2 means there's a lot of potential for augmented reality apps. At the time, Apple said it was working on "new features and enhancements" to address the concerns, and in March it added a new webpage to educate parents about existing controls.

What are his key strengths? "He has the ability and mentality to play at the highest level in a number of positions ". The 24-year-old had been heavily linked with Liverpool's Premier League rivals Manchester United since last season.

Siri has always been one of the most broken experiences on iOS.

First, Apple is beefing up its Do Not Disturb features.

The Photos app has a new search function, and the camera benefits from new Animoji and personalized Memoji characters, as well as filters. There is a new Shortcuts app to help you create all shortcuts involving various apps. That improved iPhone SE you were looking forward to? There is one new feature we definitely need to highlight here though: automatic workout detection. And will Apple dive further into its own original video programming?

Apple, kicking off its annual developers conference, announced that coming versions of software powering iPhone and Mac computers will block the use of so-called "cookies" from "like" buttons that can follow people from one website to another.

Voice Memos is now available on iPad and adds iCloud support to sync recordings and edits across devices.

However, this is targeted primarily towards developers at the conference since it features a complete timetable of the talks and seminars. In iOS 12, Siri will be able to give suggestions based on past user activities - such as ordering coffee before a morning commute - and add Siri shortcuts in either a new Shortcuts app or in specific partnered apps.
