What WWDC announcements will have the biggest financial impact for Apple?

The "Do Not Disturb While Driving" setting will automatically silence incoming texts and notifications while an iPhone is connected to a auto via Bluetooth or cable, the tech giant announced Monday. The add-on will send out an automated reply to people who text you while you're driving to inform them that you will answer them once you reach your destination.

Battery life is advertised at 10 hours, and iOS 11 is packed with several new iPad features such as a new Dock for finding your favorite and recently used apps and files. That's an important component for situations where, say, you're taking some form of public transportation, or are simply a passenger in someone else's vehicle.

It also bolsters the belief among many industry observers that Apple will build new augmented-reality features into its coming 10th-anniversary edition iPhone, and eventually develop glasses that relay information about the world so people can view maps or restaurant menus without pulling out a device.

The iPhone screen will also be locked to prevent drivers from using many of their apps while driving.


For the first time, Apple also said it will support virtual reality and argument reality platforms for developers on its Mac computers in the next generation operating system. The main feature of the tablet is the system of ProMotion, ensure the update rate of images with frequency of 120 Hz.

What Siri learns on one device is synced across all devices, but this is still private thanks to end-to-end encryption, Apple says. In addition to a voice that sounds more natural, machine learning lets Siri learn about you to anticipate what you want and when.

It takes only an average of three seconds after a driver's mind is taken off the road for a road accident to occur - reading a text message while driving successfully distracts a driver for a minimum of five seconds. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2015 there was approximately 391,000 traffic accidents and approximately 3,477 deaths as a result of distracted driving. In the event of an emergency, the mode can be tuned for what Apple referred to as "special contacts". "When you are driving you don't need to be responding to these kind of messages".

Yesterday was Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), where the company unveils its latest software and hardware developments.


For the 5,300 developers that got to see iOS 11 unveiled in the flesh in California, Cook's assertion is probably not too far from the truth.

Files is an all-new app that is the file manager we've been clamouring for since the iPad first came out. There are the number of updates including the iOS 11, macOS high Sierra, tvOS 11 and watchOS4.

You can really maximize your storage in iOS by carefully watching your apps and how much they save.
