What’s Your Favorite iOS 12 Feature?

With it, iPhones users can see how much time they're spending on their phones and for what. But this year, don't expect news about new gadgets. What is clear is that Apple is banking on users becoming more interested in AR experiences. This is paired with another useful feature in iOS 12 called Shortcuts.

San Jose: To help parents manage screen time for their kids, Apple has announced new tools built into iOS 12 that will let them take control of the time children spend interacting with iPhones and iPads.

Apple is also launching a new framework for its tvOS operating system called 'TVUIKit' that aims to make creating user interfaces for Apple TV apps an easier process for developers.

There's also "App Limits", which will allow you to limit usage to certain apps by setting a time limit and and receive alerts when that time is nearly up. "Ultimately, Apple might be able to sell more phones by telling people, "Our phones come with these structures that allow you to not spend so much time on your phone'". Although they don't have to have their child's device present, it's also possible to do so if it is, of course. Matt Moss attended this year's edition of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference as a scholarship student, and had a chance to test out Apple's iOS 12 developer beta.

The app switcher now allows you to swipe apps away without the need to hold down on them first.

The Nationals had been some of the Capitals' biggest cheerleaders during the championship run, donning "ALLCAPS" shirts and hats. The Nationals - who are now first in the NL East - are hosting the San Francisco Giants for a three-game series this weekend.

Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering, commented on the wide-ranging update.

Apple is adding a "For You" tab to the Photos app that will show memories, as well as produce sharing suggestions.

The new tools will be available with iOS 12 this fall (between September and December), said Apple.

This iOS 12 software update includes new extras such as new interactive Memojis characters, improved security and the ability to have a group video chat with up to 32 friends via FaceTime.

All in all, Apple fans are going to be happy with the new updates because it's from Apple and they really are cool. We can't know if and how Apple plans to expand on the feature, but it's there to help with lighter hearing issues.
