Apple Takes On Distracted Driving With New Feature

Jun 07, 2017, 14:18

The point of a public beta is to find bugs developers have not yet uncovered, so if you have an older iOS device you can afford to upgrade with possibly buggy software, this is an interesting side project for iOS fans. This is especially important if you want to make sure Apple isn't downgrading a feature you use every day or changing how it works dramatically. Apple hosted its WWDC keynote Monday, detailing highlight features on iOS 11, just weeks after Google hosted the keynote for its I/O conference, where it detailed highlight features for Android O. There is a brand new App Store on iOS 11 which includes Today tab where you can discover new app and story about the developer. Here are some of those areas which iOS 11 will bring forward a new experience with iOS 11. Airport and indoor maps are also new additions that will sure enrich the Maps utility with iOS 11. The official release is coming this fall as a free update for the iPhone 5s and newer, iPad mini 2 and newer, 5th generation iPad, iPad Air, iPad Pro, and sixth generation iPod touch.

We already know that some of the new iOS 11 features will not come to all of these devices.

Apple said increasing driver focus is the aim of the development, which will be included in the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 11, in the autumn. Apple claims it will be the "largest AR platform in the world", thanks to its user base of hundreds of millions of iPhone and iPad users.

"While Apple could be applauded for taking this first step we should not lose sight of the fact that drivers using the iPhone are involved in thousands of crashes", Feldman told HuffPost.

Apple has been making devices with 64-bit processors rather than 32-bit processors since 2013, when it introduced them with the iPhone 5S and the iPad Air.

You should probably be thinking about getting some new apps too.

The Apple Pay app is also now available as an app within the draw in Messages. This allows you to keep all of your iMessage and Text conversations in sync across your devices using iCloud. It's also the place where you can customize your favorite apps and see those apps you've used the most - including those on iPhone and Mac when applicable.
