How to Watch Apple's WWDC Keynote This Evening

Apple may allow third-party developers to create apps that work seamlessly on both iOS and macOS platforms. In other words, iOS will now be context-aware about the way it notifies you. The privacy uproar is also good timing for Apple, as it distracted people from its own scandal over slowing down phones with older batteries to prevent sudden shutdowns. The latest version of Google's mobile operating system, Android P, also comes with an "app dashboard" which allows users to set time limits on individual apps as well as a wind-down mode before bedtime that stops notifications and turns the screen to greyscale. It'll tell you how often you pick up your phone, which apps send you the most notifications and so on. The new "Digital Health" features will appear in iOS 12 settings, according to a recent Bloomberg report. Expect to see Apple announce improvements and new functionality for Siri.

"We know, this is something that can help families achieve the right balance for them", Federighi said.

Apple also rolled out group video chat sessions with up to 32 users, putting it in direct competition with companies such as Cisco Systems Inc CSCO.O and Microsoft Corp's MSFT.O Skype. In a test comparing the performance of iOS 11.4 and iOS 12 on its iPhone 6 Plus (a device launched in 2014), Apple claims that the camera app launched up to 70% faster in the newer version. That is part of an overall internal effort to bring the experience of building apps for macOS and iOS closer together. The upcoming ARKit 2 should provide developers with tools for object detection, image tracking, and creating shared AR experiences. Those who prefer to communicate with their own face instead of cartoon versions of it might appreciate the introduction of group calls to FaceTime.

FaceTime has also been integrated into Messages, so a group message can be turned into a group FaceTime call.

Finally, there's Apple TV which may be about to get support for Dolby Atmos and a host of new applications and content. 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. Users will also be able to search by business or place names, or even events such as a concert.

The News app is updated with new Browse section, where you can browse by different topics. Multiple reports have suggested Apple is testing a new redesigned iBooks app that will focus on curation.

Carplay will now let you pick which app you use for navigation.
