Apple previewed iOS 12 for iPhones and iPads earlier today, that brings faster performance, improved responsiveness and a handful of brand new features like Group FaceTime, Memoji and much more.

During its 2018 Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose, California on Monday local time, Apple showcased tools aimed at helping iPhone users kick the habit of constantly checking their devices, with new software that discourages phone use. The new features will be a part of their iOS 12 operating system update.

First off, there's Do Not Disturb During Bedtime, which hides all notifications. As is now tradition, the company showed off the latest version of iOS at the event (iOS 12), delivering plenty of new features to the platform. There are underlying changes to the camera app to also make taking pictures faster. This will give you a weekly activity summary that details how you used your iPhone or iPad for the week-how much time you're spending on your device, what apps you're using the most, how often per hour you're picking up your phone, which apps are sending the most notifications, and more.

Users can then set time usage limits per app, giving them a notification if they reach a daily time usage limit.

The prime minister has told President Trump that new USA steel and aluminium tariffs are "unjustified and deeply disappointing".

Shortly after talking about its new iPhone capabilities to restrict attention, Apple turned to the Watch, and demonstrated new features that let a user view web content on their wrist, all while competing against friends in workouts on a stationary bike.

Plus, Apple Watch will get new Pride bands and a Pride watch face.

Yet Apple made it clear it also hopes to make its devices and services even more alluring - and potentially irresistible - by creating new avenues for its digital assistant, Siri, to serve as a backup brain for users.

All of this, however, is a great thing - both for Apple and for its users. The description below the new toggle is similarly vague, elaborating that, "In addition to continuously learning how you look, Face ID can recognize an alternative appearance".

The woman was "terrified" and "locked herself in a bathroom so she could contact Janet", Randy told ET's Kevin Frazier . Their son was born in January 2017, just four months before the couple announced their split.

Apple is trying to cut the number of software bugs with this year's upgrade.

Apple is bringing some classic iOS apps to its desktop, including News, Voice Memos, Stocks and Home. Going forward, any new notifications will be grouped by app and appear in a numbered stack on the lock screen. Like with Samsung's AR Emoji, users will soon be able to customize characters to look like them.

The update includes support for multi-player AR games, additional features for the Siri digital assistant, and new ways to search for photos, block notifications and conduct FaceTime video conference calls.

That's because two big features are coming to iOS 12: tongue detection on Animoji and personalized Memoji. All Messages threads will have a native link to FaceTime, be it one-on-one or group chat. Federighi credits the boost in performance for older devices to iOS's tight integration with its A-series chips that power all of the devices that support iOS 12.
