If you own a MacBook or iMac you're in for a treat.

So Apple is updating iOS 12 for iPhones and iPads.

Apple has already been testing its new frameworks, with the recently revealed News, Stocks, Voice Memos, and Home apps (basically ported versions of the iOS apps) that were recently introduced with the next version of macOS, Mojave.

Other new features are aimed at families who want to control screen time for their children.

Meanwhile, Apple is also introducing better ways to manage your notifications. Digital objects created with the new format, called USDZ, will work in Apple's Safari browser, Messages and Mail apps, meaning AR isn't limited to stand-alone apps that people choose to download separately.

The porting process is still in development but the company has promised to release the functionality sometime in 2019. The new OS will come with a new automatic index, powered by machine learning, that groups pictures of events such as concerts or sports games together.

Regis, another two North Korean video cameramen in black suits emerged through the sun roof of a black SUV, filming the crowd. Mr Lee also said it was "not easy" to find a location in the world that is suitable to host such a high-level meeting.

This clever desktop picture automatically changes to reflect what time of the day it is. Apple just announced these changes for the Mac App Store this week, so we hope to learn more about it in the near future.

"I think we are all going to be using Do-Not-Disturb a whole lot more", Federighi said.

Apple has not been accused for the first time. The rest of them will be present as a strip at the bottom of the screen. They'll also be able to set time limits on these apps, blocking them out and preventing them from sending out notifications.

According to Cult of Mac, which earlier reported on the feature, you'll activate Live Listen from iOS 12. This is all done with the objective of developing Apple's AI and getting more people to use Siri for complex tasks. Apple releases its new software at its annual developer's conference so that programmers can update their new apps so they will work when the operating system is released in the fall.

Mobile operator EE today claims to have become the first in the United Kingdom to launch smart number technology, which they say gives customers the ability to make and receive calls and texts using the same number across multiple devices and all "at no extra cost".

Quick Look provides a fast, full-size preview of a file, allowing users to rotate and crop images, mark up PDFs and trim video and audio clips without ever opening an app.
