IOS 12 Could Introduce Automatic System Updates

  • This is what macOS 10.14 looks like probably

The addition of these features was previously leaked by Bloomberg, but the details on how they worked wasn't yet known. This new ability has been in plans since Apple acquired a firm called workflow which has brought this feature to iOS 12.

Apple also seems to be enhancing the way the technology works as the company highlights in the release note for iOS 12 that Face ID will now continuously learn about how you look in order to increase the success rate of identifying you by recognizing alternative appearances.

"It will become dramatically more hard for data companies to identify your device and track you", Federighi said.

Apple's new controls will expand on the "Do Not Disturb" options on the iPhone and iPad. Be warned though, this does mean you can blow through your monthly minute allowance six times as fast if you really push it... Siri also got a small upgrade.

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.

This new feature allows up to 32 people to be part of a video chat at the same time. In case you're still using an iPhone 7 or older, animoji are animated characters such as a panda bear, cat, bunny, pig and unicorn. And you can also see which apps are sending you the most notifications.

Reports in the USA also suggest Apple could introduce a tool to help users better manage their time on their devices as part of efforts to improve digital well-being.

The 31 new countries Apple will launch the software in this summer include Bulgaria, Bahrain, Cyprus, Estonia, Iceland, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Qatar, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, and Peru.

New animojis have been added with "tongue detection feature". However, there is still no option to close all apps at once.

Screen Time will now be tied to an account, meaning that parents will be able to restrict and block out certain apps from being used on several devices, such as your kids' phone and iPad. This feature works with Family Sharing. Apple says the primary focus this time around was on speed and performance.

New data protections require apps to get user permission before using the Mac camera and microphone or accessing personal data like user Mail history and Messages database.

For example, Facebook earlier in 2018 changed how its News Feed operates to reduce users' time spent on the site in favor of wellbeing.

Last month Google unveiled a similar tool - soon to launch for its Android operating system - which will enable users to monitor how often they use their phone.
