Measure will be available with iOS 12 whenever it hits, so stayed tuned.

The Siri upgrade will integrate the voice-based technology with more outside apps. A report from The Information suggests that such features could be part of the iOS 12 unveiling set to take place at Apple's WWDC.

Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice-president of software engineering, describes "Screen Time".

iOS12 also include a feature that lets users group all the notifications from an app into one notification.

Activity tracking will sync across iOS devices, meaning that users won't be able to circumvent their app usage limits.

There are also new screenshot tools, which makes working with screenshots more similar to iOS with screenshot thumbnails appearing immediately in the corner of the screen after you take them. Finally. Yes. This is not a drill.

Will be automatically activated during bedtime, so you are no longer distracted when trying to sleep.

If you have friends who also have an Apple Watch, you'll soon have a new way to communicate.

You can now set an ending time for do not disturb - for 1 hour, until a certain period, or when you leave a location or meeting. Once the time specified by the user is reached, they are locked out from the app, though obviously if they wish to, they can bypass it. Apple, however, will remind users from time to time about this limit. So say for instance you want to limit the amount of time you spend stalking models on IG, you can use Screen Time to tell you "time's up" when your allotted Instagram allowance runs out. And iPhone X users will be able to create "Memoji" - a personalized human-like version of Animoji. Users can select skin color, freckles, hairstyle, head shape, eye wear and more. You can also add iMessage stickers on to the camera app, and turn your head into an Animoji superimposed on to reality. The time-limits feature will synchronize between multiple devices via Apple's iCloud service. Kind of like Snapchat. It also integrates with iMessage, so you can invite others in a group to join your call right from iMessage. All powered by on-device machine learning. A new AR development kit introduces a multiplayer mode for AR games, improved face tracking, and 3-D object detection.

"Siri Shortcuts" deliver a new, much faster way to get things done with the ability for any app to work with Siri. The company said Siri gets 10 billion requests per week. Apple's betting its new AR tools will open the floodgates even further.

The ARKit 2 feature that users will get the most enjoyment out of is shared experiences.

News has a new sidebar on the iPad. You can now search for your favourite channels, news sources, and more. However, the new iPhone will include a glass-back design. On the contrary, Apple is seemingly doing more to make sure its entire user base has a better experience with its devices.

All in all, the improvements coming to Photos in iOS 12 sound pretty cool, even though Federighi may not have devoted a lot of time to talking about them.

iOS 12 is available to registered developers today and will be released to the public this fall.
