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.
This year, Apple has already announced iOS 12 and major augmented reality updates.
A standout improvement coming to iOS 12 is upgrades to its augmented reality functionality.
Apple is bringing some classic iOS apps to its desktop, including News, Voice Memos, Stocks and Home.
An activity report will now let you see how much you use of an app each day.
Measure: A new ARKit app that lets users easily measure things in real world, kind of like the MeasureKit app. When Photos detects other people in your pictures, it can suggest you share them with those people. Like the iOS App Store, which was redesigned previous year, the new Mac App Store celebrates apps, games and developers with an all-new Discover tab featuring compelling stories, in-depth interviews, helpful tips, collections of must-have apps and more.
An example is saying "where are my keys" to have an app open which locates your vehicle keys. It then shuts the app off, until users change the setting, executive Craig Federighi said Monday on stage at Apple's annual developers conference.
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.
As people speak, they are presented as tiles.
The UI is getting a complete redesign, with a new discovery tab to find editorial content around Mac apps, including stories and collections. "During the day when you're using the app, you can receive a helpful notification, letting you know time is nearly up". Shortcuts are available on iPhone and iPad, though any shortcuts you create will be available on the HomePod and Apple Watch as well.
Parents can also set limits, using "Allowances" to allow their children ertain amounts of time on their devices. Pressing on a notification, you can tune how often you'll get them in the future from the app that sent it. Notifications are now grouped by type, app or topic. Users will be able to customize their appearance down to freckles, skin tone and accessories. "Houseparty for Mac makes lightweight group video chat accessible to more users than ever before", said Ben Rubin, co-founder and CEO of Houseparty. Those effects are accessible behind a star icon in FaceTime, and include filters, text overlays, sticker packs, iPhone X's Animoji, and the new animated avatars called Memoji that Apple is introducing in iOS 12. It also integrates with iMessage, so you can invite others in a group to join your call right from iMessage.
Other digital wellbeing features to launch with iOS 12 include enhancements to the "do not disturb" feature, including a bedtime mode that dims the display and hides all notifications from the lock screen until prompted in the morning.
The technology giant has unveiled new features in its web browser Safari that will block Like and Share buttons that can be used by social media platforms to monitor web users.
