Of course announced was its next-generation much anticipated and predicted mobile software iOS 12. The new system will work on a range of products that date back to 2013. Next, he put a picture on the table, and the app gave him the dimensions of the rectangle - flawless for framing, for example, but probably also possible with tables or other rectangular furnishings. Amazon, by contrast, was much more open to controlling apps with its Alexa assistant.

What the new Suggestions feature looks like.

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.

The announcement was made during the 2018 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) event in San Jose, California, which also included other new features and updates coming to iOS 12.

Other features inlude "limit distraction" which would turn-off lock screen notifications at bedtimes to avoid "getting spun up" by prompts when perhaps one just wants to check the time.

During a presentation of the new Safari web browser, Apple software chief Craig Federighi revealed that the "like" and "share" buttons on Facebook can now be used to track online activity "whether you click on them or not", the BBC reports. The app uses a series of notifications to let kids know when their time is about to expire.

"We have never been about maximizing the number of times you pick [the device] up, the number of hours that you use it", Cook told NPR.

Apple also may introduce new ways to help people manage their health and assist apps in the use of augmented reality - the blending of digital images and information with a physical setting through the camera. The division's revenue surged by 31 percent from the previous year in Apple's most recent quarter. The shortcuts "appear based on whether you typically do those activities at those times", Lynch explained.

Apple also brought in the next AR software toolbox for developers. And, Adobe apps are going to support USDZ.

There are a bunch of other incoming iOS 12 features that Apple didn't talk about on stage at WWDC. The iOS 12 beta for the iPad shows that it comes with support for gesture controls that are similar to the iPhone X. The beta software also changes the location of the time/date and the battery/network icons on top of the screen.

"What we did was we integrated the ability to share in the operating system, make it simple to share a photo and that sort of thing", Cook added.

The collaboration software players have no need to fret about FaceTime just yet - Apple would need screen sharing, integrated chat and recording to really be business ready - but for the average meeting Apple's Group FaceTime may be good enough.
