Apple Takes On Distracted Driving With New Feature

It also supports the iPad Air and Air 2, the iPad Mini 2, 3, and 4, and the iPad Pro.

Apple's iOS launches are a regular yearly occurrence, so nobody was surprised when Apple took to the stage with version 11 yesterday. Many noted that Apple is trailing Amazon's (amzn) Echo and Google's (googl) Google Home speakers in the new market for voice-controlled digital devices. "Using Business Chat, your customers can get answers to questions, resolve issues and complete transactions on their iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch".

The new camera in the iPad Pro is 12 shooter with a optical image stabilization for those having trouble holding the 1.05 (or in the 12.9 inch case 1.53) pound device steady. It also introduced autoplay blocking, which stops music and video from playing automatically without your permission on websites as well as "intelligent tracking prevention", which stops ads from following you around the web.

The update to iOS 10.3 included a tool to detect apps that can not run in 64-bit mode. "This is a new way that we are going to interact with these devices".

As small as these Control Center features may seem compared with the bigger announcements at WWDC, it's a major shift from Apple's usual controlling ways, and it's a sign that Apple may finally be giving more power to its users to customize their iPhones and iPads in the way they want them to work.

Thus, iOS 11 will be the first Apple OS to drop support for the 2012-era iPhone 5, the 4th-generation iPad, and the 2013 iPhone 5c, which uses the same hardware as the iPhone 5.

With HomePod, Apple is also offering some robust personal security features, which should work to its advantage, both Husson and Ask suggest.

We are only at the tip of the iceberg and there's a lot more waiting to be discovered. The 10.5-inch model is powered by an A10X CPU and 12-core GPU with a 120Hz refresh rate. HomePod features a large, Apple-designed woofer for bass, a custom array of seven beam-forming tweeters that provide high frequency acoustics with directional control and technologies built right in to preserve the original recordings. This is helped by the A10X processor itself, which Apple claims is 30 percent faster at raw compute performance than the A9X.

In addition to adding numerous new tools to iOS (including person-to-person payments in iMessage), Apple also announced a much awaited feature: a one-handed keyboard mode on iPhone.

"Most apps from the last four years or so should be compatible, unless they haven't been updated since 2015".
