Apple wants to replace your tape measures with an iPhone

Melba Vasquez | 05 June, 2018, 17:18

In the same vein, Apple is bringing more of its iOS apps to the mac.

Well-known developer Steve Troughton-Smith stumbled across a 30-second preview video on Apple's servers that shows Xcode 10, the next version of Apple's IDE for developing iPhone and Mac apps, running on macOS 10.14.

We'll be keeping a close eye on how well iOS 12 performs on devices, new and old, as we get closer to the fall (likely September) public release.

That's because two big features are coming to iOS 12: tongue detection on Animoji and personalized Memoji. According to Apple, iOS 12 has been optimized to launch the Camera 70% faster, reveal the keyboard 50% faster, and to make apps launch twice as fast. With iOS 12, Apple is finally bringing support for third-party navigation apps to CarPlay as well. Some apps, like the core phone-calling function and education programs, can be available at all times.

Siri will also provide new suggestions, such as prompting a user to turn on Do Not Disturb on their phone when entering a movie. So if your device was compatible with iOS 11, it will also be compatible with iOS 12. You will also be woken up to a new screen that gives you a summary of your day. Also included is a Downtime feature that'll block notifications from apps and let parents block apps from being used during a set period of time.

App Limits: You can now limit your app usage, but you can ignore the limit if you want to.

What's new for the iPhone and iPad in iOS 12? You can make your own personal emoji, customize the look, the skin, the hairstyle, your outfit, and so much more. In fact, several of the new apps in macOS Mojave will use the system. Kind of like Snapchat.

FaceTime: Group calls. Up to 32 people. FaceTime is now also integrated into the Messages app so you can start a Group FaceTime right from a group you had in your Messages app. Apple is adding new animals (and a ghost) to the Animoji feature, which is only available to iPhone X users. All powered by on-device machine learning.

The company broadened the ways that developers could work with Siri, allowing more in-app use. Siri can even automatically suggest shortcuts every day based on your habits.

Apple says Safari will prevent share buttons and widgets on websites from tracking users without their permission.

Apple also announced ARKit 2 for developing more immersive AR experiences, including shared experiences. You might, for instance, tap on an image in a news article to view the object in an interactive 3D environment. With Measure, you can measure objects or walls around you thanks to some new augmented reality tools from Apple. Will be natively supported on Adobe Creative Cloud, too. You can now search for your favourite channels, news sources, and more. Great New Apps The Mac App Store already offers the largest catalog of Mac apps and even more great apps are joining. Last month, Google unveiled a "digital well-being" initiative at its I/O developers' conference, including new features for Android smartphones that make it easier to activate no-distraction modes and get feedback about excessive app use.

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

This is a really neat feature for power users who want to get the most out of their phones, but we'll see how popular it is with the mainstream crowd who might find it too hard or time-consuming to set up.
