Apple hits hard on privacy, Memoji in new iOS update

Apple has announced the latest major version of macOS, named Mojave, at its WWDC 2018 event this week.

Apple claims that apps now open 40% faster, and the camera app will launch 70% more quickly than it used to in iOS 11.

Group FaceTime calls are also being introduced with iOS 12.

The Messages app in iOS 12 isn't receiving a ton of new features or changes.

First, Apple News is coming to macOS Mojave, so I can check that off on my wish list. Something that would end up circumventing Apple's rule of taking 30% of all in-app sales revenue.

If you really can't wait, make sure you back-up your iPhone fully and use a smartphone that isn't your main device.

Music-streaming companies like Spotify will soon be able to let users utilize Siri controls to play music through their apps thanks to Apple's newly-announced Siri Shortcuts feature in iOS 12.

Along with announcements like finally adding Dolby Atmos support, zero sign-on and new aerial backgrounds, Apple is also bringing a new password autofill feature to tvOS 12, the operating system that powers the tech giant's 4th-generation Apple TV and Apple TV 4K.

The updates come after Apple faced backlash from investors and iPhone users over concerns about its devices becoming increasingly addictive and distracting for children.

The new feature, called Screen Time, will allow parents to monitor the amount of time their children spend on specific apps and to set limits on iPhones and iPads.

You can create your own animojis or "Memojis" and customize it completely. Do Not Disturb will show just the clock time, suppressing the usual flurry of notifications that can pull you in at a glance.

Apple has wasted little time in adjusting its rules to allow Valve's Steam Link app to appear on the App Store.

Apple held its annual Worldwide Developers' Conference on Monday in San Jose, California, unveiling new updates to its operating system, customizable Animoji, new fitness features and more. Apple has added several simple actions users can perform without having to leave Finder, such as rotating and cropping photos.
