All eyes are set on WWDC 2018, here’s how it’s serving the purpose!
The conference is not a one day affair and it is going to run from 4th to 8th June 2018. Normally, Apple tries its best to keep the newannouncements and evolvements under wraps, seemingly because the software is mostly created internally unlike the hardware. And, the best example of this is the iPhone, whose hardware is manufactured outside the States using several third-party suppliers (though Apple keeps a strict eye on the similarity and quality).
However, this time, it is believed that in the midst all the criticism making rounds, Apple will intend to fix the irksome bugs and other problems instead of creating a buzz with some of the new launches.
However, being the10th anniversary of the App Store, just a year after the first ever iPhone was developed, people were anticipating something remarkable in the app store. From the inception of the App store in 2008, it has grown to more than two million various sorts and varieties of mobile applications.A few engineers have been pretty open about their efforts and the problems to make a living off of just developing applications. But there’s clearly no doubt about the fact that an completely new economy has bred from the mobile software, plus, a vibrant generation of iPhone adopters has come of age embracing the apps and the application developers who have got the capacity to keep them staring down at the iPhones.
It is also expected that Apple might put up a show of the software features whichevidently offer users more control over theiPhone usage, as per some of the reports. However, there have been a setback for the anticipators as Apple might have just decided to step back from executing a few of its original strategies to reshape its mobile software. Plus, Apple is also expecting to come with an evolved Siri, and an improved and enhanced digital assistant tools. Though, they have been trying to up their game when it comes to Siri, but now the users are expecting something groundbreaking.
On the opening day of the conference, Apple showcased new controls for restricting the amount of time the users spend on the devices as the organizationanswers thecriticism as per which the Apple devices are rapidly becoming more and more addictive and distracting.
The new controls introduced by the iPhone app development company enables the consumers to easily set “Do Not Disturb” modes on the iPhoneslike during night or even while attending important meetings. When the user will activate the ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode, the applications will be stopped from distracting the user. Apple has introduced some features that enable the users to fetch reports which include the amount of time they spend on the mobile applicationsalso the apps on which they spend most part of their time. The users get the option to set limits on certain applications as well. In fact, the new add-ons also allow the parents to set certain controls for their children as well.
A few of the controls are just sameto the ones which were unveiled by Google sometime back, during the unveiling of plans to make the phones go into “shush” mode when they are placed face down, and the screens showing just the greyscale colors late at night.
Amongst the host of fresh updates, a few updates aimed at activity and health monitoring were also expected. And, the users were treated with a few offerings. As, Apple Watches will now be able to easily track the activities like hiking, yoga etc. and even enablehe user to challenge his/her friends for exercise competitions.
Some of the new features revealed by Apple will not be integrated immediately, but they will reach the users soon. The main objective of these updates is to make the Apple devices more useful as well as more powerful. However, one of the most anticipated topics of research is the unveiling of the new iPhone software, the much-awaited, iOS 12. It is expected to hit the market in the month of September following the introductionsof the latest iPhones, for instance.
