Apple adds 'tongue detection,' so now you can sext with Animoji

Apple iOS 12

"In iOS 12, we wanted to make an easy way to experience AR across the [eco] system, and to do that we got together with some of the greatest minds in 3D, at Pixar", Apple senior vice president Craig Federighi said.

"Data companies are clever and relentless", Mr. Federighi said, adding that it will become "dramatically more difficult" for firms to track users through their devices.

Apple showcased a big update to Animojis today, adding a human look called Memoji alongside tongue detection on the silly iPhone X animals.

The most interesting element of Apple's digital health push is that it will provide you a dashboard and activity report, dubbed Reports, that summarizes time spent on the phone, apps and how often per hour you pick up your device.

Apple's decision to introduce tools to help people use their smartphones less should come as no surprise, according to an industry analyst.

■ Apple is also planning an update to ARKit, its platform for developers to build augmented-reality experiences on iPhones and iPads, which it announced past year.

Parents will find the new features inside the Screen Time section in the Settings section of their iOS devices.

In addition you can now hard press the Do Not Disturb button and set a time limit for how long you want to remain incommunicado during the day.

Apple's privacy and security updates are part of a calculated move to prioritize long-term customer loyalty over shorter-term metrics such as engagement, said Horace Dediu, an Apple analyst with Asymco.

As a whole, the Digital Health initiative seeks to make smartphone usage more intentional, and less recreational. The new file format will be supported natively by Adobe in Creative Cloud. What remains to be seen is whether there is enough of a compelling reason for someone to use AR, even if it's built into everyday apps. In that context, Google and Apple's new tools to help wean users off their device dependence can be seen as a kind of moral response to a growing societal problem. Apple's also introducing multiplayer gaming with augmented reality, so several people could be looking at the same augmented reality object from different angles. Were you expecting more improvements from Apple?

Apple will encourage users to share photos with their friends by suggesting such opportunities in a new "for you" tab. Before, Apple had limited third-party access to a handful of categories, such as messaging, while excluding competitors to Apple's Music service, for instance.

This update also brings Grouped Notifications, at long last. Next year, Apple will open up this capability to its developers.

Apple says iOS 12 won't slow down your older phone.
