Apple announces anti-addiction features for iPhones

  • Apple's Face Time gets a huge upgrade video conferencing with up to 32 people

Apple will encourage users to share photos with their friends by suggesting such opportunities in a new "for you" tab. Introduced was the next version of its mobile phone software iOS 12 and desktop MacOS Mojave.

Along with this screen health feature iOS 12 could bring new messaging options, better controls in the camera app, extra Animojis and improved customisation.

The keynote is also at the end of this article for those who wish to see all the features demonstrated at the WWDC 2018. One of those experiences will allow users to play the same AR game together while looking at the same landscape while on separate devices, a feature that we had heard about ahead of WWDC. "Ultimately, Apple might be able to sell more phones by telling people, "Our phones come with these structures that allow you to not spend so much time on your phone'".

The performance boost comes from the way iOS 12 communicates with the chip inside older iPhones.

This includes a new dynamic user interface which shows all callers in a group FaceTime video call as tiles which adjust in size and position, depending on who is talking. On iOS 12, up to 32 people will be able to call into a FaceTime chat, which is probably unnecessary, but also pretty awesome.

Virtual assistant Siri has also been made more powerful through the new Shortcuts feature.

With iOS 12, notifications are now grouped by app, removing the never-ending list of notifications that greeted me each morning. But Apple clearly needs you to use your phone - it's what its core business is built upon.




The new search functionality will use image recognition to find or group photos by recognising events, actions, and genres.

With Measure, you can measure objects or walls around you thanks to some new augmented reality tools from Apple. Apple is also looking to teach its users about AR with a new app, Measure.

Check out all the new features for Apple iOS 12 here. Those avatars can actually look like you in iOS12 as well.

Screen Time will offer daily and weekly activity reports that reveal the amount of time spent in individual apps and how often a device is picked up, among other things, USA Today said.

Secondly, iOS 12 and Safari is going to make it much, much harder for third parties to track you across the internet. A new tool called Shortcuts makes it a far more customizable tool, allowing you to record custom prompts for Siri that let you use third-party apps, and Apple has opened up Siri to more third-party use in general, something that was sorely needed. It will give a time breakdown of how and when their phone was used as well as a report on the number of notifications received.

Apple's new-found empathy to children's iPhone addiction comes after a 2016 report by U.S. social agency Influence Central revealed the difficulty parents have in navigating phone ownership among children. The company said its Safari web browser for both Macs and iPhones will keep users from being tracked without their permission by websites that use "like" or "share" buttons from social media companies.
