Many Apple iPhone X users have been complaining that Face ID's single face support is limiting. For Apple, it is easy to push software updates because it makes its own software and devices. A demo from Lego showed how the new tools can add digital overlays to scans of physical Lego structures.

App Usage allows each person to see how much time they're spending on each app.

A new setting, "App Limits" will help people decide how many hours they should spend on their phone every day.

Downtime is another tool for parents that will allow them to partially disable their child's device for a period of time, like bedtime or school. Expect some new AR demos, too. This will basically turn your phone into a ruler. Surprisingly, the logo of the startup, called Shift, also has a similar looking shape, which resembles Shortcuts.

There are a lot of iOS 12 features that Apple didn't talk about on stage yesterday but are noteworthy. So, all the features of iOS 12 along with security upgrades will be available on the five-year old iPhone 5S as well.




The company said its Safari web browser for both Macs and iPhones would protect users from being tracked without their permission by websites that use "like" or "share" buttons from social media companies.

The real meat and bones of Apple's phone addiction features is what they're calling ScreenTime, which comes with a whole host of features, including "Reports". This is a feature I'd like to see in a future update. All Messages threads will have a native link to FaceTime, be it one-on-one or group chat.

MacOS Mojave will be fully available in the coming months for Macs introduced in mid-2012 or later, plus 2010 and 2012 Mac Pro models with recommended Metal-capable graphics cards. But that's not all. The application can measure items around you by just pointing the camera at it. Nicole is a financial reporter, focusing on technology, national security, and policing.
