The keynote kicks off at 10am PT (10:30 pm IST). Following the release of iOS 11 and the #BatteryGate controversy, Apple is focusing on performance improvements with iOS 12 on older devices. It says Safari will also prevents advertisers from collecting characteristics specific to each user's mobile device so they can't identify your device and retarget ads to users. The latest Apple software allows users to control the time spent on the applications.
One major focus of iOS 12 will be on performance. These tools will become available to developers sometime in 2019, though Apple already used internal versions of these tools to bring iOS apps like Apple News and Stocks to macOS Mojave. The new "Digital Health" features will appear in iOS 12 settings, according to a recent Bloomberg report. With a new Discovery tab, a lovely new UI, and more, the upgrade will make finding your new favorite apps more intuitive than ever before. The refreshed interface is said to include a "Reading Now" tab as well. "It's an arms race and I believe Apple may be winning". Apple announced a new AR file format, USDZ, that big creative-software companies like Adobe are supporting, and a new AR-driven app called Measure.
Universal apps make a lot of sense for Apple - after all, the company has pitched the iPad Pro as a laptop replacement. Of course, AR apps like these have been available in the App Store, but this is built-in to Apple's growing catalog of preinstalled apps.
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. Support for Apple Podcasts is coming with watchOS 5, too, letting you automatically sync new episodes to your watch. But he then went on to show how iOS apps will be easier to run on Macs.
"Mass-deployment of fingerprinting protection is a game-changer for privacy engineering, and for users", said Dr Lukasz Olejnik, independent security and privacy researcher and consultant. With iOS 12 you can create your own customizable character to mimic your own appearance.
macOS Mojave Touted as the world's most advanced desktop operating system, macOSMojave comes with new features for professionals and home users.
Augmented reality (AR) continues to be a big focus for Apple. Among the upgrades include WebKit, so you can look at web pages on the watch, a Walkie-Talkie function that's fairly self-explanatory, automatic sensing of workouts, and a pilot test at several universities of an "identity card" feature that will allow access to certain buildings.
