Apple Unveils iOS 12 at the WWDC. Here’s What’s New

June 05 23:00 2018

9to5Mac first noticed the update when combing through the iOS 12 beta, where one can find new settings for Face ID that allow users to “Set Up an Alternative Appearance“.

“Apps beg us to use our phone when we should be doing something else”, Craig Federighi, the company’s senior vice president of software engineering, said at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose, California.

In addition to the new privacy measures, Apple also introduced new features that will encourage users to limit the amount of time they spend on their phones.

Do Not Disturb is gaining new options in iOS 12 that’ll let you have DND automatically end based on a specific time or when you leave a certain location.

Parents will also be able to see these stats for their children and set limits on usage as a result. The update, which includes a host of new features, will track your screen time, with an eye on improving user health and wellbeing.

Virtual assistant Siri has also been made more powerful through the new Shortcuts feature. All-in-all, grouped notifications should greatly consolidate your notifications center and save time in responding to/deleting them as they come in. The format will also get support in Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite of apps for professional photographers, videographers and designers.

After debuting with the iPhone X a year ago, Apple is updating Animoji in a big way with iOS 12.

“We think this is going to be helpful for many people, but especially for some kids”, said Federighi while unveiling the app. With Shortcuts, you can make it easy for Siri to perform actions in other apps that you want quick access to.

Apple wasn’t just talking privacy features at WWDC, though the event lacked some of its usual spark because there was no major hardware announcement-no phones, no watches, just software.

Apple CEO Tim Cook kicked off proceedings by announcing that it has paid out $100 billion to developers since the App Store’s inception a decade ago.

There’s also a new version of Apple’s mobile operating system coming out this fall. We will update this post as more information becomes available. If you’re in an unwieldly group chat, you can start a FaceTime directly from Messages so you can argue with family members over video. Joining the current roster will be a ghost, tiger, koala, and T-rex.

New group-calling capabilities for FaceTime were unveiled, meaning up to 32 people will be able to take part at a time.

Just after announcing iOS 12 at WWDC 2018, Apple is announcing a whole bunch of updates for its macOS platform with macOS Mojave. In Safari, enhanced Intelligent Tracking Prevention helps block social media “Like” or “Share” buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without permission. You can now search for your favourite channels, news sources, and more.

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.
