The 6 Biggest New iPhone Features Apple Just Announced

The 6 Biggest New iPhone Features Apple Just Announced

Apple unveiled new steps to make it hard for advertisers to distinguish among users, building on its effort, begun a year ago, to prevent such tracking.

Another example is if Siri detects you are running late for a meeting, it will suggest that you message the person who is hosting the meeting. Instead of just being able to turn it on and off, you'll be able to set automatically set end times for Do Not Disturb.

A redesigned Voice Memos application for the iPhone that's also coming to the iPad for the first time.

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, said in a press release, "We are excited to usher in a new era for the Mac App Store with a lovely new look, unique editorial content and emphasis on human curation that complements the ways people are using their Macs today". And finally, watchOS 5 will introduce a new Walkie-Talkie feature, which the company called "an entirely new way to communicate with voice and just a tap of the wrist".

Apple didn't go into details about the improved facial tracking during the reveal, but the announcement implies that ARKit 2 includes improved facial detection algorithms. During that time, app notifications will be blocked from showing up on the home screen. The only setback in our mind is Android and Google's AR Core at this point - AR Core is only available on a subset of Android devices (list) and on a number of "supported" devices it works worse than ARKit does on iPhones (we are not iOS fanboys, but we do give credit where credit is due).

In a similar vein, parental controls are also expected to receive a boost. The 2.0 version of the software will apparently allow for multiplayer experiences for the first time, giving multiple users the ability to view the same virtual object.

Next up from the rumour-mill is that the build will be equipped with a fresh batch of Animoji, which could be baked into FaceTime.

Meanwhile, Larry Kudlow, White House chief economic advisor, characterized the G7 pushback as "more of a family quarrel". As per the age-old practice, the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases the jobs report on the first Friday of every month.

And that underscores a paradox: Apple is introducing features to limit iPhone use at the same time it is encouraging more use by building in more useful features.

Apple on Monday announced a new app to allow users to get reports on how much their kids are using particular apps on their iPhones and iPads.

Sure, it doesn't sound as exciting as a complete overhaul - but based on the current unpredictable state of iOS, prioritising performance is the right thing to do.

Check back for updates. The new software will be make iOS devices faster and more responsive, he said. Millions of Apple fans around the world tuned in to Apple's live stream of the event because they couldn't wait to see what Apple has in store for its various software platforms in 2018.
