Apple to introduce new privacy features for devices

Apple iPhone WWDC 2018 iOS 12

As with all Apple software updates, enhanced privacy and security remain a top priority in iOS 12.

Also look for iOS performance improvements, more ways to use NFC technology, some redesigned basic apps like Stocks, and most importantly, Animoji news.

Apps will now open 40 percent faster and the camera function will also be quicker to access.

Primarily aimed at "doubling down on performance", iOS 12 will be officially available on all the same devices as its predecessor.

ARKit 2 enables developers to create the most innovative AR apps for the world's largest AR platform, with new tools to integrate shared experiences, persistent AR experiences tied to a specific location, object detection and image tracking, making AR apps even more dynamic.

Measure: A new ARKit app that lets users easily measure things in real world, kind of like the MeasureKit app. As part of all this, there is a new Shortcuts app by Apple. Siri has been struggling to keep up with the ever-improving Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. With Siri Shortcuts, users will be able to build their own commands with any application. Siri can even automatically suggest shortcuts every day based on your habits. Apple also added several more animojis like a ghost, koala, tiger and T.rex.

Trump says he wasn't warned in 2016 about Russia threats. He was
Lawmakers demanded the briefing following reports that a government informant approached Trump campaign officials. I can't think of any major case I handled in 20 years where there was not someone willing to provide information.

Apple's software engineering head Craig Federighi said the company will make it "dramatically more difficult" for data companies to track individual users.

For people who want to take more control over their app usage, App Limits will let them set limits on the amount of time they spend in certain apps. One of the new features is the ability to turn on "Do Not Disturb" during bedtime.

We'll be reporting on the event, known as WWDC, from the San Jose McEnery Convention Center, starting with a keynote presentation featuring chief executive Tim Cook at 1 p.m. ET. During that time, app notifications will be blocked from showing up on the home screen.

Apple will group notifications so that they no longer appear one by one. iMessage, for example, will stick together as one notification that you can remove at once-rather than forcing a user to swipe notifications away one at a time. For instance, a new "Reading now" section will show you where you were left off.

Unlike Facebook and Google, Apple's business doesn't depend on gathering data to sell ads (though it does collect user data for ads in places like the App Store).

Apple updated the Photos app so you can do multiple search terms and get suggestions for multiple search terms. At the time, Apple said it was working on "new features and enhancements" to address the concerns, and in March it added a new webpage to educate parents about existing controls. More details can be found in our iOS 12 post.
