CEO Tim Cook took the stage in San Jose, California, on Monday at its annual World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) to preview new software features for the iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch.

Apple's new Screentime app will allow users to see detailed reports about how often they use their iPhone and which apps they use most frequently.

The App Limits features give people the opportunity to set specific time limits on apps as well. And while some would argue this is perhaps an issue best left for parents to feud over, Apple still rose to the occasion and introduced a trio of new utilities in iOS 12 created to help curb device usage.

Apple's proprietary Stocks app for iPhone will also be coming to iPad with iOS 12 featuring an all-new format and design on the bigger screen.

To start, Do Not Disturb at Bedtime is a new feature created to help iPhone users unwind before bed, and works by taking whatever notifications are now awaiting your review and hiding them on a separate screen until the morning when you wake up.

The company's latest iOS update brings a host of new features.

A year ago saw the company unveil new iPad Pros, Macs and the first sighting of the new HomePod speaker.

NBA Finals 2018: Stephen Curry breaks 3-point record
No team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit to win any best-of-seven series. LeBron James kept Cleveland close despite Golden State's torrid shooting with 10 points, five assists and four rebounds.

During Downtime, notifications from apps won't be displayed, and a badge will appear on apps to indicate they are not allowed to be used. There will also be a tongue detection feature that will make the Animoji more expressive. Federighi explained that iOS 12 will essentially tell your iPhone's chip to ramp up speed a lot faster to open an app compared to previous versions of iOS, which ramp up chip speed at a more gradual pace. iOS 12 will also tell your iPhone's chip to ramp down its speed more quickly when it's not needed to save battery life, too.

"We need to have tools and data to allow us to understand how we consume digital media", Tony Fadell, a former senior Apple executive who worked on the original iPhone and iPod, said in a recent interview.

"With iOS 12, we're enabling new experiences that weren't possible before". "We may not even recognize how distracted we've become".

The changes in Safari will apply when Apple's next-generation operating systems roll out widely later this year.

There are four new animated emoji characters that respond to your facial expressions: ghost, koala, tiger and a T-rex.

As with all Apple software updates, enhanced privacy and security remain a top priority in macOS Mojave.

Apple also announced watchOS 5 today, which will include a few notable new features. This means if you go to a supported sporting event or concert, when you want to see those pictures all you have to do is search for the name of the team or the band in the Photos app. On iOS 12, up to 32 people will be able to call into a FaceTime chat, which is probably unnecessary, but also pretty awesome. A new QR reader in the control center and much more. However, the iOS lock screen will still only show you notifications once, which isn't terribly useful. This year, Apple is bringing that functionality to a first-party app in iOS 12 called Measure.
