Apple's summer Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), the annual event when the company typically provides important updates and unveils new product and operating system details, sometimes also surfaces surprising innovations. They've also gone after Apple, trying to tell them to find ways to stop people from spending their entire lives in their phones, and it sounds like it'll be complying with iOS 12. Although it's interesting news, let's hope for a couple of demonstrations that will better help us understand the full scope of this new feature. And in March, an advocacy group also urged Apple to implement new iOS features that would help combat an increasing "smartphone addiction epidemic".
One of the most notable changes in iOS 11 was the control center.
WWDC lasts five days, and iMore will be on the ground finding out everything you need to know about official launches and possibly getting some top secret information that no one is supposed to know (we promise to share any news that we get).
Nothing else is known about the Digital Health feature at the moment, but it seems like a step in the right direction. The most substantial leak that we've got hold off is an alleged display panel for said design language could seep down to the smallest iPhone lineup. The Cupertino-based tech giant may give a makeover to Siri among its consumer-facing updates. Apple is also said to be working on a redesigned iPad Pro with Face ID facial recognition technology, but that's "also expected later".
Smart assistants have evolved over the past few years. Siri is offered only on the iPhone, iPad and Mac users. This is according to a Bloomberg report, which suggests that this might be motivated by the fact that iOS has received a lot more attention and iteration from Apple than MacOS.
There might be news of Apple TV becoming a more fully-featured streaming service, including original series and films fresh from cinema screens. As noted in January, the company chose to hold back on larger updates to its operating systems this year to focus on bug fixes and performance improvements, resulting in a fairly tame-sounding slate of WWDC announcements.
There are other rumours around WWDC 2018 as well.
