Apple announces new emojis - CBBC Newsround

Weekly reports will be sent to parent devices, and time "allowances" can be set by parents for their children.

Details of the iOS 12 software update - available later this month in public beta form - were announced Monday at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference, or WWDC18, at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.

Craig Federighi reveals Apple's plan to get people to use their phone less often. As is now tradition, the company showed off the latest version of iOS at the event (iOS 12), delivering plenty of new features to the platform.

Users will have the option, via a pop-up notification, to stop a tracker following them across the web. The next day, Apple will present a more calming "morning screen", displaying the weather instead of a stressful list of junk you've got to catch up on. They can also schedule "downtime" for kids to prevent them from checking their devices at bedtime.

Apple Inc. said it will combine the different software systems underpinning iPhone and Mac apps, creating a larger, more-attractive ecosystem for millions of developers.

We'll be back with more iOS 12-related tidbits as we come across them so stay tuned for more. It's also adding tongue detection, so the animals mimic your own tongue movements. The software will then recreate your head and face movements just like the other Animojis in Messages. "Group FaceTime", as it's called, will support up to 32 users in the same conversation. It also supports Animoji, apparently, in case you and your coworkers feel the need to turn your conference calls into something far more ridiculous than they should be.

After debuting with the iPhone X previous year, Apple is updating Animoji in a big way with iOS 12.

Measure: A new ARKit app that lets users easily measure things in real world, kind of like the MeasureKit app.

The embedded apps are also improved.

Apple's own virtual assistant Siri is getting a new feature as well and it is shortcuts.

Apple is also expected to push its message of data privacy at WWDC. Stacks is an easy way to collate files of the same file type you have scattered around on your desktop.

Apple today gave us a peek at its next major iOS update, iOS 12. Taken together, these new features are an effort by Apple to address concerns about smartphone overuse. Federighi got in a tiny dig at Facebook at the same time. In Safari, enhanced Intelligent Tracking Prevention helps block social media "Like" or "Share" buttons and comment widgets from tracking users without permission.

Apple and its CEO Tim Cook have been among the most outspoken critics of internet companies like Facebook and Google, whose business models rely on personal data to target ads.

"This year, we're shutting that down", he said about the commend fields and share buttons. Currently, you're limited to Apple Maps. Since Steam Link is a multiplatform app, though, it's allowed to offer purchases outside of Apple's control, so long as they're made on the host PC.

Apple Watch has a new walkie talkie function.

Third-party mapping and navigation apps like Google Maps and Waze are coming to CarPlay, Apple's in-car interface for using apps while driving.

Federighi nixed rumors that the iOS and Mac App Stores would merge. It also comes upgrades of several of the features available on iOS including Siri.
