New iPhone feature to block texts while driving

This means that phones and tablets running Apple's 32-bit A6 (and earlier) chip like the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C and the fourth generation iPad won't be able to use iOS 11. This opens up a two-way wireless communication between the Watch and the corresponding gym equipment so that the Watch can track the user's workout more accurately, according to Apple Insider.

Apple conventionally announces its latest software updates at WWDC and this year is no exception.

High Sierra "comes with updates to Safari that help block site trackers and autoplaying videos" and "new photo-editing tools like curves", reports The Verge. The documentation page for iOS 11 beta shows that the updated software adds support for Core NFC, which is described as "a new framework for reading Near Field Communications tags and data in NFC Data Exchange Format".

HomePod uses spatial awareness to sense its location in a room and automatically adjust the audio to sound best in any room (that's a Sonos feature too called TruePlay).

While most technology heavyweights such as Facebook are investing heavily in virtual reality, Apple CEO Tim Cook believes augmented reality (AR) will be a bigger opportunity than VR. The entire point of developers having the software is to test it out with their apps, so you might find that some of your apps become unusable or that you lose information.

Apple in iOS 11 has allowed users to use the one-handed keyboard which could minimise the keyboard to be used single-handedly as seen in GBoard.

The new "Do Not Disturb While Driving" feature will go into effect six months after Bethany and James Modisette sued Apple for failing to provide the iPhone safety feature that it patented in 2014.
