Apple makes fun of Google at WWDC 2018

Apple makes fun of Google at WWDC 2018

The new feature, called Screen Time, will allow parents to monitor the amount of time their children spend on specific apps and to set limits on iPhones and iPads.

Apple is launching a new tool named "Screen Time". And Apple is serious about its AR efforts.

But as the Verge reports, there are still a handful of new features that come with the update including one that tracks your phone usage, group FaceTime calls, and an app that can measure your furniture.

Other new features include parental controls to limit the time children spend in apps, as well as which apps they can use.

Thus, if you are also excited for the iOS 12release, the above dates are the ones when you will be able to use them.

However, you won't see the official release of these features until the Autumn, when Apple will make iOS 12, macOS Mojave, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12 available to download via your devices.

Google has responded. It a year ago updated a tool called Family Link that gives parents the ability to monitor their children's device use remotely.

During Downtime, notifications from apps won't be displayed, and a badge will appear on apps to indicate they are not allowed to be used.

For the paid Apple developers, iOS 12 released on June 4. You will be able to add time if you were, say right in the middle of something.

There will be plenty of new features in the upcoming software update. And while the iOS 12 beta might be tempting, many iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users are better off staying put on iOS 11.

All in all, Apple fans are going to be happy with the new updates because it's from Apple and they really are cool.

This Dark Mode lets users toggle between a light and dark desktop, and apps like Mail, Messages, Maps, Calendar and Photos all support the new look too.

Apple has announced there will be a group FaceTime feature available for iOS coming soon and if you're someone who already participates in group chats with friends and family, the group FaceTime feature will bring you closer to all the people you chat with.
