Here's Everything Coming With iOS 12

First up, it launched the Google Family Link app previous year, which lets parents lock their child's device, set screen time limits, and approve/reject Play Store downloads.

Those features also carry over to a child's device that is linked to your iCloud account through Apple's Family Sharing feature.

The plans, which aim to improve digital well-being, include a new feature called Screen Time.

The new software will let iPhone customers track their activity by day, week or month and see which apps they are using most, and even set a limit on how much they can use their phone.

Virtual assistant Siri has also been made more powerful through the new Shortcuts feature.

In taking aim at Facebook, Apple has explicitly signalled that it is against ad-based tracking across the web and that it's willing to do something about it. Federighi says the snooping warning, which will be present in Apple's Safari browser on iPhone, iPad and Mac, will target Like buttons, share buttons and comment fields that are added to websites from third-parties. The system will break down the time you spend using each app, how often you unlock the device, and what apps are pinging you with notifications. There will also be a tongue detection feature that will make the Animoji more expressive.

Set for full release this fall, the company's mobile operating system is now in developer preview, with a public beta expected later this month. Federighi explained that iOS 12 will essentially tell your iPhone's chip to ramp up speed a lot faster to open an app compared to previous versions of iOS, which ramp up chip speed at a more gradual pace. iOS 12 will also tell your iPhone's chip to ramp down its speed more quickly when it's not needed to save battery life, too.

What's new in iOS 12?

Apple wasn't just talking privacy features at WWDC, though the event lacked some of its usual spark because there was no major hardware announcement-no phones, no watches, just software.

Apple is now worth a staggering $945 billion, driven in part by solid sales for the iPhone 8 and X, particularly in China and Japan, as well as a spike in revenue from its App Store. Even better, Safari will warn users when they reuse the same password at multiple sites.

Apple also rolled out new tools for augmented reality, saying users would be able to share worlds in games, for instance.

There are four new animated emoji characters that respond to your facial expressions: ghost, koala, tiger and a T-rex.

Apple also unveiled an app called "Measure" that measures boxes and other objects in the real world by pointing the camera at them. Other iOS favorites, such as FaceTime and Animoji, will also undergo transformations alongside key updates to the Do Not Disturb function. She will order your coffee using the mobile order feature in a coffeehouse app, start navigation directions and play the podcast you want. You can now search for your favourite channels, news sources, and more.
