New iPhone feature to block texts while driving

Apple is making a push into VR with updates to macOS and new graphics chips in its iMacs. That's the same price the new 13-inch MacBook Pro will be starting at, too.

There's not a whole pile of information up presently, however, the name of the application and its symbol strongly recommend that Apple's arrangements of highlight some sort of local file manager app in iOS 11.

That lends itself nicely to the new Multitasking features available for iPad in iOS 11. It means you will be able to keep more photos and videos on your device.

As you might expect from a keynote that stretched well past two hours, iOS 11 was allocated a fair amount of stage time.

WatchOS 4 offers new workouts like high-intensity interval training, personalized notifications to help you stay motivated, and the option to have your playlists start as soon as you begin a workout.

Apple has extended support for its Apple Pencil stylus across the operating system so you can interact with the pencil and take notes wherever you are.

The iPhone maker is also trying to make Apple Music more social. The long-rumoured 10.5-inch iPad Pro finally made an appearance at WWDC, replacing the outgoing 9.7-inch version. Yet it isn't as bulky as the 12.9-inch model.

The old Apple ad schtick said "there's an app for that".

For its part, Google has launched its Tango AR platform and the Google Lens app, while Microsoft (MSFT) is developing augmented reality glasses. The lawsuit said that despite filing a patent in 2014 on a safety feature to block the use of FaceTime by drivers, Apple had failed to implement it.

One interpretation is that Apple isn't going after competing voice assistants but the midrange, wireless multi-room speaker market; the domain of companies like Sonos, Bose, and Logitech.

Developers who want to dive straight in to the hundreds of new features in iOS 11 can do so here.

What new features does iOS 11 have?

Drivers will still be able to use Apple CarPlay, of course, in cars that are equipped with it. Apple CarPlay is a auto interface specifically created to allow drivers to hear and respond to text messages using voice commands and to safely use other iPhone features while driving. Another feature of this app will be to display the files on one's other iOS devices, iCloud Drive, and also on third-party apps like Dropbox. Amazon, for example, sold more than 11 million Echo devices from mid-2015 to December 1, 2016, according to estimates from Morgan Stanley analysts, who calculated statistics from before the latest holiday season. As an added bonus, developers who have integrated Siri into their apps will now get support for more categories, including to-do-lists or reminders, banking and apps that use QR codes. The company hopes to usher in a new standard for mobile productivity, including support for emerging technologies like augmented reality.

Apple's virtual assistant Siri has been given a makeover with iOS 11. Apple recommends you do not install this version unless you are genuinely a developer as it's still buggy and unstable software. While the iPhone 5 and 5c are slow by modern standards, the issue isn't RAM or raw performance, it's the ability (or lack thereof) to run 64-bit apps and programs. It is availble in Silver, Gold, Space Gray and Rose Gold in 64GB, 256GB and 512GB storage capacities. It will be available for both iPhone and iPads users.
