Apple WWDC unveils software upgrades that push AR & AI

The newest version will be named Mojave, after the Mojave Desert in California.

In iOS 12, the Photos app will now display search suggestions when a user is looking for a specific picture, based on things that appear in the photo, including cars, dogs and flowers.

Group FaceTime calls are also being introduced with iOS 12. This identifies your device to Apple when it pings their update servers and lets them know the device is registered to receive beta versions of iOS 12. However, Apple users typically upgrade to new software releases more quickly than Android users, exposing them to Apple's latest apps and services, which generate revenue for the iPhone maker as well as app developers. This will be helpful at the beginning of a new lease, when trying to measure out your new place or decide what furniture to buy.

Apple announced a whole slew of new features for iPhone iOS 12 and the Apple Watch OS 5 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on Monday.

Parents will also be able to set restrictions on times of day, limiting access during school or bedtime. A new AR development kit introduces a multiplayer mode for AR games, improved face tracking, and 3-D object detection.

The following clip shows you how you can create a Siri Shortcut using Workflow to play a favorite playlist on Spotify.

If you're looking to update macOS 10.14 Mojave you'll notice that the Software Update tool is no longer where it once was.

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. Roku has supported Atmos via the Vudu app for more than a year.

The new store includes a ratings and review API, and new apps - such as Office 365 from Microsoft.

Speaking to the crowded halls of the San Jose Convention Centre, Apple confirmed a series of new features and also outright denied it was planning to combine macOS with iOS-following persistent rumors.
