Apple iOS 11 takes a stand on driving safety with CarPlay updates

Soon, Apple will introduce a new iPhone feature that will do away with that annoying - and unsafe - urge to look at a text message while you're driving.

The next generation of iOS was announced at the WWDC in San Jose. This will be especially relevant considering the fact that last year's iOS 10 update included improvements to the Lock Screen and its stock apps. Then there's the more versatile and powerful Apple Pencil which can also manipulate a new app called Document Scanner - these are just some of the new additions to iOS 11.

Apple is making a push into VR with updates to macOS and new graphics chips in its iMacs.

When it comes to what powers the latest iPad Pro model, the 10.5-inch tablet incorporates Apple's latest and greatest A10X Fusion chipset which comes with a six-core CPU. Siri will be able to translate English words and phrases into Chinese, French, German, Italian or Spanish.

Apple invited press into a hands-on area for a brief play with their new Macs, iPads and the much hyped HomePod, the multi-room speaker. Moreover, Siri will have new female and male voices which will supposedly sound "more natural". On top of that, you might want to consider using an older iOS device to try the first beta. "What Siri learns about you on device is kept synced across all of your devices and kept completely private, readable on all of your devices". Soon, you'll be able to send fellow Apple users money through an app that's integrated into iMessage, the default messaging app on Apple's mobile devices.

Apple, the maker of the ultra-profitable iPhone and its operating system, iOS, revealed the new version at the opening of its annual developer conference in the US.

New iPhone feature to block texts while driving
The performance facilitates " complex tasks like editing photos and 4K video, rendering 3D images or playing games ", says Apple . Driving guidance: Apple in its iOS 11 has also added new improvements to Maps which can be used while driving in a vehicle .

Key storylines heading into Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final
It did not look good early for Rinne who, after two subpar efforts in Games 1 and 2, gave up a goal on the first shot of the game. The Penguins also have managed just four shots on goal in 13 power plays in the series with just one goal with the man advantage.

Safari, Apple's web browser, seeks to make users' online experience smoother and less annoying. Money received goes in to Apple Pay cash card. Nonetheless, the high-profile developer conference marked Apple's headlong pursuit of one of the most important battlegrounds in wireless. Users can check which apps and games will stop working after upgrade by going to Settings General About Application App Compatibility.

The good thing about the app is that it will continue to work with iCloud and third-party apps like Dropbox, Adobe Creative Crowd and more.

Texting while driving has repeatedly been called out as the biggest distraction when driving.

Once the feature is turned on, your iPhone can tell when you may be driving and automatically mute your notifications so your screen remains dark. While "Do Not Disturb While Driving Mode" is switched on, contacts will get a message informing that user is driving and will get back.

iOS 11 introduces the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature to help users stay more focused while driving. A new full-sized Smart Keyboard has been custom designed for the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, offering a thin yet durable keyboard that never needs to be charged or paired over Bluetooth and is easily foldable into a protective Smart Cover.
