Addicted to Your iPhone? Apple Screen Time Will Tell You

Representational image

While Federighi said that improving speed and other performance was Apple's major focus with iOS 12, he announced a handful of interesting new apps and features that will be available with the upgrade.

Apple also showcased a new system that makes it more hard to gather information about users as they browse across the web.

iOS 12 will also dynamically increase the performance on the CPU as needed and then reduce it when it isn't in order to preserve battery life. In normal situations, app launches are 40 percent faster, the keyboard pops up 50 percent faster, and opening the camera happens up to 70 percent faster than before.

Apple is gearing up for a huge iOS 12 update!

Notifications: You now have greater control over notifications, so they can be delivered quietly directly to the Notification Center. Finally. Yes. This is not a drill.

Do Not Disturb has been updated so that it can be disabled at certain times, locations, or after certain actions. iOS 12 also gives users more options on how they can manage notifications so that they can be delivered quietly or turned off completely. With Android Dashboard, coming soon, Android users will be able to see their daily phone usage, how often different apps are used, and how many notifications they receive in a day. Family Sharing is supported too, so parents can control how their children use their phone. The Animoji characters which first debuted with the iPhone X launch will expand with a ghost, koala, tiger, and tyrannosaurus rex. You can make your own personal emoji, customize the look, the skin, the hairstyle, your outfit, and so much more. A new AR development kit introduces a multiplayer mode for AR games, improved face tracking, and 3-D object detection. Kind of like Snapchat. "Group FaceTime", as it's called, will support up to 32 users in the same conversation. Both can be used in FaceTime and Messages where they can be coupled with a set of new effects and filters. It's very easy to use - as easy the App Store for iOS apps is on the iPhone - and uses all the same credentials. All powered by on-device machine learning.

Shortcuts can also help Siri act as a business assistant throughout your day.

Apple, led by CEO Tim Cook, is taking a swipe at ubiquitous "share" buttons created by Facebook and others to track your behavior online regardless of whether you click on them. There will also be grouped notifications, which means no more WhatsApp notifications overloading your phone's lock screen. Working in conjunction with Pixar, Apple has developed USDZ, which is a new file format for AR content.

News has a new sidebar on the iPad. You can now search for your favourite channels, news sources, and more.

The biggest Mac news at the keynote was that macOS Mojave would bring with it a completely redesigned App Store, which looks a lot like the one seen on iPhones.

Apple of course unveiled a brand new version of its Apple Watch operating system, watchOS 5.

iOS 12 seems like a meaningful step forward for the operating system. The new "Digital Health" features will appear in iOS 12 settings, according to a recent Bloomberg report.

iOS 12 will be available in public beta later in June, and will be generally available in the fall.
