Apple announces anti-addiction features for iPhones

05 Juin 2018

The operating systems themselves won't be available to the general public until the Fall, but Apple announced an earlier public beta program for eager iPhone, iPad and Mac users. But for now, look for Apple to continue to push the Watch as a health and fitness device and introduce new features.

We really want to stress that Siri Shortcuts look like the killer feature for iOS 12. It isn't simply the system elements like the dock and window chrome that are going dark, Apple's native apps now plug into the dark theme as well as apps which are built with the latest MacOS APIs in mind. Some apps, like the core phone-calling function and education programs, can be available at all times.

This one has been a long time coming. iOS users may have access to the best games and apps, but all of those can load the phone with notifications that become a true hassle to sort through.

With iOS 12, Siri will be able to automate your work routine, becoming an AI-powered business assistant that can help professionals achieve more efficiency and productivity. Finally. Yes. This is not a drill. It can also automatically detect the size of photos in a frame. You will also be woken up to a new screen that gives you a summary of your day.

Do Not Disturb During Bedtime will limit notifications you see at night time, so it isn't a barrage of information. These new features, available later this month as part of the iOS 12 public beta, include Activity Reports, App Limits and new Do Not Disturb and Notifications controls created to help customers reduce interruptions and manage screen time for themselves and their families. Family Sharing is supported too, so parents can control how their children use their phone.

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. As the name suggests, this app can be used to measure objects around you. Kind of like Snapchat.

FaceTime also gets an upgrade, adding the ability to have a group video chats with up to 32 friends. Plus, you'll be able to spice things up with Animoji and Memoji during these FaceTime conversations.

But arguably the most interesting addition to watchOS 5 is a feature called Walkie-Talkie that lets you send voice memos to other Apple Watch users. All powered by on-device machine learning.

The company also will allow broader use of in-app voice controls, which it had limited to a handful of apps, such as PayPal and Uber. These include new "competitions" within the Activity app, letting you challenge buddies to fitness duels and earn badges.

"Here Apple is allowing users to see when tracking is enabled on a website - actually being able to visually see that with a prompt is breaking new ground". At WWDC it released details of ARKit 2, a set of tools for developers to create AR experiences for their apps. You might, for instance, tap on an image in a news article to view the object in an interactive 3D environment. Adobe says it will support the format in its Adobe Creative Cloud products. It's called Measure, and it's an augmented reality tool that lets you measure pretty much anything. It now has a new Browse section and on the iPad, there's a new sidebar to make browsing around in the app easier.
