Apple'sWWDC conference is under way and AR game developers have a lot to be excited about: Apple just announced ARKit 2.0, a new version of their incredible AR framework that powers Pokemon GO's AR Plus mode on iOS. Its approach includes fading the screen to gray before bed, a dashboard that shows how much time you've spent on the phone, and a "shush" mode that silences calls and notifications when a phone is face down. 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. In addition to the tools so you use the phone less, Apple is expected to announce new feature to draw you right back in. Apple faced a backlash late past year when it emerged that the company slowed down some older iPhones with flagging batteries. The company said it's shutting down that tracking, unless the user decides to permit it, through a Safari browser update for Mac and iOS devices, including iPhones and iPads. Apple has also introduced a new AR format - USDZ - and a new augmented reality measuring app call Measure.
Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, told developers that the update will help to speed up app load times. Also cool is a new "zero sign-in" feature in tvOS 12 that unlocks all supported channel apps automatically, This way as long as your Apple TV is on your pay TV provider's internet network, you don't have to log into channel apps at all for channels included in your pay TV package.
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.
Yet Apple made it clear it also hopes to make its devices and services even more alluring - and potentially irresistible - by creating new avenues for its digital assistant, Siri, to serve as a backup brain for users.
Users can assign a custom voice command for Siri Shortcuts. In addition, Animoji has expanded to feature a ghost, koala, tiger, and T. rex.
AR Kit 2 involves new features like distance recognition and multiplayer gaming, which Lego is integrating into whatever AR apps it has up its sleeves.
Apple also unveiled an app called "Measure" that measures boxes and other objects in the real world by pointing the camera at them.
You'll also be able to create Shortcuts with multiple tasks within a dedicated Shortcuts app. We're expecting to see iOS 12 along with updates to the Mac and other operating systems. The app will suggest search options before you ever start typing, offering to sort images by people, places or categories. You will be able to download it from Apple's Beta Software Program page. A new design makes it easier to capture, share and edit recordings.
