3D Object Detection: letting apps identify existing real-world objects, update them, interact with them, and place AR objects on top of them.
Does your iPhone or iPad support iOS 12?
Apple is releasing iOS 12 in beta form to developers first. "We're very excited about the new communications features we're bringing to iPhone and iPad with Memoji, a more personal form of Animoji, fun camera effects and Group FaceTime", said Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering.
Do Not Disturb, Notifications and Screen Time New tools built into iOS 12 help customers understand and take control of the time they spend interacting with their iOS devices. It'll tell you how often you pick up your phone, which apps send you the most notifications and so on. If they want a little extra time, they can hit ignore - a bit pressing snooze on the alarm app.
Do Not Disturb can now also be used for a set time period.
The new operating system will also let users control how notifications are delivered to reduce interruptions, including the ability to group together notifications or turn them off completely. Screen time is recorded and the app limit will notify you once your time is up. You tap it, record a custom phrase, and then you can say it to Siri. Users can also create their own shortcuts, or sets of shortcuts, and specific a key phrase. One example shown was a "heading home" scenario that includes getting directions home, turning on NPR, setting the thermostat and sending out an "on the way home" text. ARKit 2 also enables shared AR experiences between multiple users and persistent experiences that remain anchored to environmental objects, so you can come back to them again and again.
