Apple's new phone software speeds up older devices

Apple iPhone WWDC 2018 iOS 12

More than 6,000 developers from around the world are attending the five-day event. The company is also expected to focus more on bug fixes and security improvements than new features with iOS 12.

When will iOS 12 be available? The upcoming ARKit 2 should provide developers with tools for object detection, image tracking, and creating shared AR experiences. The Alphabet Inc. company has a new Dashboard for Android phones that lets people monitor how long they're using other apps and reminds them to take a break.

A newly-designed Apple Books app, for ebooks and audiobooks.

Apple's Siri voice assistant avoids a lot of the splashy headlines about privacy issues that Amazon's Alexa and the Google Assistant seem to generate. So rather than asking Siri to open up the Tile app, for example, you can just say, "Siri, I lost my keys" and the digital assistant will automatically ring your Tile. There's a "For You" tab now that features effects suggestions, and also, Sharing hints for sharing pics with people photographed alongside you.

Animoji: There are four new Animojis: a new tiger, koala, t-rex, and your own Animoji: Memoji.

China general slams 'irresponsible comments' on S. China Sea
Airstrips have already been constructed, and in May, China landed nuclear capable bombers on contested islands in the area. Last week the US withdrew an invitation for Beijing to participate the exercise known as Rim of the Pacific.

We're set to hear the first official word of iOS 12, watchOS 5, macOS 10.14 and much more, so scroll down below to find out how you can watch and learn about this first. One of the new features is the ability to turn on "Do Not Disturb" during bedtime. This will include information on how much time you've spent on Twitter or iMessage, as well as what apps are sending you the most notifications. If you don't allow that access, Facebook won't be able to track your browsing activities online-even if you're signed into Facebook while browsing.

"For iOS 12, we are doubling down on performance", Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, said in the opening keynote of Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, Calif. Screen Time would also allow parents to limit access to some apps and websites.

So if you want to watch from home, you've potentially got more ways than ever before. "They beg us to use their apps".

App Limits: You can now limit your app usage, but you can ignore the limit if you want to. That most certainly is the case here as iOS 12 is mostly about improving the user-experience.

CarPlay is getting third-party navigation support.

Wildwood Police Release Body Cam Footage Of Controversial Beach Arrest
The newly-released 9-minute clip begins with cops administering a breathalyzer to Weinman, which she appears to pass. After a back and forth between Weinman and the officer, she refuses to give the officer her whole name.

Next up at the WWDC Keynote was a preview of the new tvOS 12 operating system. 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. Apple TV 4K gets Dolby Atmos support with the new update, which is obvious a big deal.

"Later this year, customers in almost 50 million households will have access to live channels and tens of thousands of on-demand programs via an all-new Spectrum TV app on their Apple TV 4K, iPhone and iPad, seamlessly integrated with Siri and the Apple TV App", the company said in a release.

"We are bringing all these protections to both Mojave and iOS 12", he added. However, even when the mode is turned off, it will present a deprecation alert to the user.

"Dark Mode brings a dramatic new look to macOS that puts your content front and center", said Federighi.

Voice memos is coming on iPad, too.

Federal Bureau of Investigation urging people to reboot routers, due to malware threat
The malware reportedly targets several manufacturers and network-attacked storage ( NAS) devices by at least one manufacturer. This software is nasty, able to collect data travelling over the router and even killing the device if so desired.

Reports suggest that Apple will also expand the functionality of the iPhone X's facial recognition system, which now only serves to unlock the phone and allow mobile payments. Meant for developers, the five-day event is also a chance for consumers and investors to learn about what the company is working on and its strategy for the future.
