How Apple plans to simplify porting iOS apps to macOS

WWDC 2018

Gaming in AR is getting a big update in iOS 12 with ARKit 2.0.

Other new features include parental controls to limit the time children spend in apps, as well as which apps they can use.

Details of the iOS 12 software update - available later this month in public beta form - were announced Monday at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC18, at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Apple is also launching a new framework for its tvOS operating system called 'TVUIKit' that aims to make creating user interfaces for Apple TV apps an easier process for developers.

Apple and Pixar collaborated for development of this new file format.

The iPhone X's Animoji feature gained a few new characters, but all of the attention is on a new feature called Memoji.

Kate Spade's Husband Reportedly Wanted A Divorce, Sending Her Into Depression
The couple sold their last stake in the brand in 2006 to focus on raising their daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade. Spade was found dead in NY earlier Tuesday in what authorities said was an apparent suicide.

"This year we're shutting that down", he said, adding that people can interact with these features if they choose to, but they won't be tracked by default on an Apple computer if they use the native Safari browser on the next version of its desktop operating system, macOS Mojave. When you begin building a desktop version of your iOS app in Xcode, certain aspects will translated automatically.

The Photos app in iOS 12 will take photo face recognition a step further by making suggestions on who you might want to share the photos with, depending on the subject.

Other new features have also been added to the default macOS app Finder, but unless you're a photography nut, you won't really notice the new previewing and photo management features. You'll also be able to set time limits for apps.

A major upgrade for the Apple Watch software, WatchOS, is also expected to be announced. Apple explains that the new OS will tell the device's chip to speed up application opening more efficiently than it did with iOS 11.

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. That way, whenever you activate your iPhone's screen to see what time it is, it won't show you all of the notifications that end up distracting you when you should be sleeping. This has been a strong focus area for Apple's rival Samsung, and may even hint that Apple has some kind of headset in the works for release later this year - though it certainly didn't say so.
