Apple has announced a new feature for iPhones to encourage safer driving by blocking notifications. A new customizable Dock on the display lets you pin your favorite apps and documents to the screen for rapid task switching.
Overall, the new Files app will be a very welcome addition on iOS devices and especially iPads, where it looks very similar to the Finder app on macOS (including support for Tags).
Numerous company's stock apps have also been updated and improved.
Apple will retire several products from the update rotation as of iOS 11, including the iPhone 5 and 5C and the fourth-gen iPad. The update of the mobile operating system of Apple can allow you to customize the double tap of your AirPods as you like!
Although Apple's new Do Not Disturb function is unlikely to solve automotive fatalities or accidents stemming from cellphone distraction, the feature's introduction does show that the company is paying attention to what's happening on our roads, unlike too many drivers.
What's really cool about the new feature is that after you stop recording, you can make edits and annotations to your recording. Apple recommends you do not install this version unless you are genuinely a developer as it's still buggy and unstable software. Ahead of that, Apple will be releasing a public beta which will be going live by the end of this month. The company claims this update to be "a giant step for iPhone and a monumental leap for iPad". The 12.9-inch iPad Pro is available in silver, space gray and gold and starts at $799 (US) for the 64GB Wi-Fi model and $929 (US) for the 64GB Wi-Fi + Cellular model. Pricing and availability for both will vary worldwide.
