Students will be able to access OWLcards through Apple Watch and iPhone

Apple also may introduce new ways to help people manage their health and assist apps in the use of augmented reality

With iOS 12, Apple says Safari will prevent share buttons and widgets on website from tracking users without their permission. Apple's virtual assistant Siri will also make suggestions for notification settings based on which alerts people act upon.

Screen Time will offer daily and weekly activity reports that reveal the amount of time spent in individual apps and how often a device is picked up, among other things, USA Today said.

Google announced similar features for its new Android P operating system at its I/O developers conference last month.

New MacOS Mojave and iOS 12 software to be released later this year will also make it harder to use trackers to create "unique fingerprints" by gleaning data about devices being used, according to Federighi. Apple's senior vice-president of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, said that there would be greater protection for users against developers that want to collect and use their data. Parents will be able to set app allowances for their children. What's your favorite new feature?

Whale dies after swallowing 80 plastic bags
A whale in southern Thailand died after swallowing 80 plastic bags , the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources said. An autopsy found another 80 bags and other plastic items weighing eight kg in the whale's stomach.

Apple also said it would start to restrict the data shared online from a device that can be used to identify it - such as the plug-ins and other system configuration features which can be used to single out a device as belonging to a certain user - a process known as fingerprinting.

The announcement is Apple's most significant counter yet to Facebook's data collection practices, and comes after years in which Apple executives have criticized Facebook as reckless with user privacy. It's called Measure, and it's an augmented reality tool that lets you measure pretty much anything. And Apple is serious about its AR efforts. The new macOS brings enhanced security feature on Safari Browser which will block tracking websites like Facebook and other websites, these websites use to track users data and those data were sold for researching goal. Instead of having to sift through a dozen Facebook notifications when a dozen people reply to a post, for example, a user could choose to receive just one notification.

"Now, if you do want to interact with [a plugin] or one of these apps tries to access this information, you get a [pop-up notice] and you can decide to keep your information private", Federighi said. The watch will also automatically detect workouts without having to launch the fitness app.

Reports suggest that Apple will also expand the functionality of the iPhone X's facial recognition system, which now only serves to unlock the phone and allow mobile payments.
