Apple's iOS 11 To Feature 'Do Not Disturb While Driving' Mode

It was a huge day for Apple fans and the tech community.

At WWDC 2017, we got a taste of how excited Cook is about augmented reality.

iOS 11 as you can imagine was the star of the show as it is every year.

At Monday's Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose, California, Apple introduced its next-gen operating system: iOS 11. "First, a new iPad Pro with thinner bezels housing a 10.5" display, 120Hz refresh rate, better pen tracking, and, of course, eventually it'll get iOS 11 with a lot of iPad-specific improvements.

Another, generally clear section inside the App Store was seen by a designer. The App Store has gotten a complete overhaul. These giants are battling over still-emerging fields that are expected to turn into technological gold mines, much the way personal computers and smartphones became moneymaking machines in previous decades.

These experiences, while impressive, aren't unique to Apple, but the company believes it's uniquely positioned to help create them on a scale we haven't seen before.

Control Center has a new look that's receiving mixed reviews.

The new "Do not disturb while driving" mode seems to be Apple's solution to this problem. "Only time will tell if the new Siri can compete with Google's knowledge graph or Amazon's natural voice processing but the installed base of iOS and Apple's scope for integration is a considerable advantage". They're solid, but far from revolutionary. This feature will be rolled out with iOS 11 later this year. It's not necessarily a bad thing.

Unlike those other smart speakers, Apple is positioning the HomePod primarily as a way to listen to and discover new songs and artists. Most users won't know at all what this is, but they'll feel it.

Devices will 64-bit processors work faster than 32-bit devices as they can do more calculations.

Has 2017's event been the biggest?

Apple is also starting to phase out 32-bit support for the Mac, telling developers at WWDC that Mac OS High Sierra would be the last to have 32-bit capability "without compromises". Maybe I'm just not getting it. Another Safari feature will stop video from automatically playing on websites. Notes has tables, FaceTime has Live Photo support for capturing moments, and iCloud supports shared family storage. It's down to one pane rather than three, and you're able to customize settings and buttons to whatever you want.

Apple had plenty of other announcements.

Apple Music is also improved with new Friends features. Do you have a story for The Sun Online news team?
