Everything You Need To Know From Apple’s WWDC 2018 Keynote

All about software At WWDC 2018, Apple lays out its vision for the future of the iPhone

An App Limits feature will let you limit how much you use an app in a single day, and iOS 12 will send you alerts when you're near that limit.

The iPhone's Do Not Disturb feature will be enhanced, including new options that will automatically end Do Not Disturb based on a specified time or location. Facebook acknowledged that over the years device makers like Apple, Samsung and Blackberry were able to build versions of the social network for their mobile devices.

The plans, which aim to improve digital well-being, include a new feature called Screen Time.

Other features inlude "limit distraction" which would turn-off lock screen notifications at bedtimes to avoid "getting spun up" by prompts when perhaps one just wants to check the time.

The new gesture bodes well for Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup which will comprise of three new iPhones, with all of them lacking a home button and featuring Face ID.

iOS 11 required users swipe up from the bottom, and then long press on the app they want to close. Adobe will also be participating, supporting Lightroom Creative Cloud in the store.

Set for full release this fall, the company's mobile operating system is now in developer preview, with a public beta expected later this month.

iOS 12 now allows you to create custom animoji, too-sort of like Nintendo's Miis.

Apple held its World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) keynote yesterday, giving people a taste of updates to come on Apple devices.




New exercises are now also recognised by the Watch, including yoga and hiking, while a Walkie-Talkie app will allow users to speak to each other through their watch.

Apple Inc. said it will combine the different software systems underpinning iPhone and Mac apps, creating a larger, more-attractive ecosystem for millions of developers. In iOS 12, animoji have tongue detection.

A big part of iOS 12 is Apple's focus on performance for older devices. It also supports Animoji, apparently, in case you and your coworkers feel the need to turn your conference calls into something far more ridiculous than they should be.

Apple also rolled out group video chat sessions with up to 32 users, putting it in direct competition with companies such as Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO.O) and Microsoft Corp's (MSFT.O) Skype.

Apple's next macOS will be named Mojave, after the desert in California.

Also updated in iOS 12 is Apple's proprietary Books app, which will include an all-new "Reading Now" section, an updated e-books storefront with new advanced search and an all-new section for audiobooks.

These buttons can track users around the internet, as can some comment widgets, which Apple is also blocking in the update. No specific release date has been set yet save for a rough timeframe in the fall where it will most likely be released alongside the new iPhones.

You'll notice when finding an initial point from which to measure, the app will suggest a place with a larger/bolder white dot and haptic feedback.
