Apple's new iOS update won't allow use of phone while driving

Posted June 25, 2017

Your testing will help Apple improve the final version of iOS 11 and it also gives you the chance to test out some of its most exciting features before everyone else gets it. iOS 11 beta 1 was then released, and millions of developers (and non-developers) have likely installed it by now.

- Apple announced this week a new way to help drivers stay focused on the road with a new feature called "Do Not Disturb While Driving". The developers previewed the update recently and as per tradition, it will be available to iPad and iPhone users for free. Various leaks indicate the latest flagship device, which might be named something other than iPhone 8, and two other new iPhones could be delayed due to OLED screen supply constraints and other issues.

iOS 11 will deliver "the biggest AR platform in the world", Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, said Monday in a statement.

Siri will also use upgraded on-device learning to take user experiences on one app to other apps. For other apps, however - games, in particular - iPhone and iPad users will be able to delete those apps without losing any vital data.

The App Store has been redesigned and made easier to tailor according to the needs and interests of the users while also extending its functionality to iMessage. iOS 11 adds more to the Control Center, introduces Apple Maps and Apple News, makes the home page of the device more convenient, brings AirPlay 2, updates Apple Music, and finally, ups the convenience through the built-in setting that let users switch to a one-handed keyboard when needed.

This is clearly the most requested feature among vocal iPhone users on social networks and on forums like Reddit.

Ahead of Apple's WWDC 2017 event, there were a bevy of clues that suggested the company might drop support for 32-bit apps in iOS 11. He's also shared a small video on how it works on the iPhone, and it seems that the feature works within apps only, and there's no "spring loading" as seen on macOS.
