Apple’s Memoji brings an animated you to your iPhone

  • At WWDC 2018, Apple lays out its vision for the future of the iPhone

Below we have outlined all of the new features that you can expect from the upcoming iOS 12 operating system due out in the fall. iOS 12 will be available on iPhone 5s and later, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad 5th generation, iPad 6th generation, iPad mini 2 and later and iPod touch 6th generation. Apple doesn't collect personal data from Maps or its voice-enabled Siri digital assistant to use for advertising, limiting the amount of personal user information the company can leverage.

Animoji, Apple's cute animated animal personas are back and upgraded in iOS 12 on iPhone, with new creatures like koala and T-rex added, among others.

The company has introduced new options for the Do Not Disturb mode, greater control over notifications, and a Screen Time feature, which lets you see how much you use your phone and apps, and set limits.

Apple's been sort of lagging behind when it comes to user control over notifications. The company says it is shutting down that tracking through its Safari browser in an update to Mac and iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads. She will order your coffee using the mobile order feature in a coffeehouse app, start navigation directions and play the podcast you want. Parents can also set and manage these time limits for their kids' devices from their phone and create app "allowances" for children.

Companies like Adobe are adopting the USDZ format to work with its Creative Cloud platform, which includes apps like Photoshop and Dimension.

If you have an iPhone do you welcome these changes?
