Apple Takes On Distracted Driving With New Feature

Today will feature exclusive premieres, new releases and a fresh look at all-time favorites, as well as recommended tips and how-to guides to help customers use apps in innovative ways. In addition to it, users will be able to make payments directly to their friends through Apple Pay; hence, making it more popular among users. There are the number of updates including the iOS 11, macOS high Sierra, tvOS 11 and watchOS4. More interestingly, Siri now has the ability to automatically translate to French, Chinese, Spanish and German.

"Siri extends beyond voice, using on-device learning to deliver more personal experiences and offers suggestions based on personal usage of Safari, News, Mail, Messages and more".

The iPhone screen will also be locked to prevent drivers from using many of their apps while driving.

The QuickType keyboard will have letters, symbols, punctuation marks and numbers on the same keyboard to eliminate toggling between keyboards.

"It's all about keeping your eyes on the road", Federighi said.

Whenever you have your phone connected to your auto via Bluetooth or cable, or even if your driving, you will not get any notifications such as text messages or any updates. When using Apple Car mode you can have notifications hidden and the phone will auto-reply to people who are trying to contact you, letting them know you're driving.

One announcement generating a lot of buzz is Apple's new HomePod. Users can also re-crop and markup a screenshot directly instead of going to the camera to do so. "Indoor maps will allow you to see which restaurants are past airport security".

Even though the Cupertino giant has given warnings about the losing support, it should not come as a surprise that Apple has eliminated supported for 32-bit apps. Thus, the feature saves you from receiving multiple yet same notifications that I find irritating at times.

The feature is called "Do Not Disturb While Driving", and it will be part of Apple's iOS 11, which is a new version of the operating software for Apple mobile devices.

Apple has prepared developers for this transition, announcing through an iOS 10 beta earlier this year that apps will have to support 64-bit hardware in the upcoming version of iOS - that would be iOS 11 - to work on those devices.
