Apple is giving the iPhone a 'Do Not Disturb While Driving' feature

Apple promises that both photos and videos will remain easy to share with no compatibility issues. Apple's tweaks and additions to the iOS 11 operating system that will be running the phone give clues on how the device will turn out. Apple TV users will also be able to tune in. Socially awkward tech nerds, rejoice! Yes, you can do the same thing with an Amazon Echo or a Google Home, but remember: this is an Apple gadget. But the biggest change from iOS 10 is that everything's on a single page now. Also, third party apps can control it - Nike+ Run Club can create a playlist for you, Shazam can add tracks it recognized to your collection. But read along to find out if you should download now or wait for the stable release, which will launch in autumn alongside the iPhone 8. Even existing apps like Pokémon GO will benefit from the company's new APIs with the ability to add sophisticated object tracking and on-screen visual effects.

But tucked in-between the razzle-dazzle of flashy new tech was perhaps the most consequential news of the day: iPhones with that upcoming version of iOS will detect when you're driving, and silence incoming notifications.

Apple also unveiled new iOS 11 features designed exclusively for iPad.

Furthermore, iOS 11 brings a new compression technology - High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) - that will conserve space whenever needed.

APPLE Apple unveils new iMac Pro

iMessage: With iOS 11, there is a shortcut drawer for stickers and iMessage apps and one need not tap multiple times to send a sticker.

Support for Apple Pencil has also been massively improved, with a souped-up version of the Notes app with support for inline drawing - one of the biggest complaints about the current Notes. ARKit will use the camera, motion sensors, and new algorithms to process depth and light rendering. The Today tab is essentially the new face of the app store. Developers can also build apps with the full APPLE MUSIC service - something companies that NIKE and SHAZAM have already taken advantage of.

iMac Pro, Apple's high-sec 27-incher with Retina 5K display, is going to be VR-ready too, coming with a Radeon Pro Vega GPU which delivers up to 11 Teraflops of compute power for real-time 3D rendering and high frame rate VR. It will apparently serve as a shortcut to the "look up" feature, which lets users get a quick set of definitions or related web search results for a highlighted word or phrase.
