  • Apple WWDC 2018 launch iOS 12 iPhone SE

There likely will be more announcements made later this summer on other new features coming to the new Mac App Store. Apple's betting its new AR tools will open the floodgates even further.

The update doesn't have many major visual changes, but underneath its interface, there's been a lot of tweaks and improvements to boost the speed of older phones.

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.

Third-party websites have already shared the beta profile, which enables you to download iOS 12 unofficially.

"[It] is interesting because Apple is trying to sell you the screen and trying to minimize it", said Rebecca Jarvis, ABC News" chief business, technology and economic correspondent.

The company's latest iOS update brings a host of new features. Timeout will allow a user to set a time limit that they're allowed to use the app for. Make sure to take part in our poll below and do drop a comment to let us know whether iOS 12 has lived up to your expectations or not. Users will see the faces of everyone on the screen sort of floating on the screen.

Gallery view provides a big preview of files without opening them in Finder, and includes full metadata for files like images.

Users of Apple products will soon get a weekly report of how much time they truly spend on their phones, according to the latest developments at their annual WWDC Conference.

On stage at WWDC 2018, Apple illustrated the functionality using the app "Tile" which you can use to keep track of your keys. After choosing the quiet mode, the notifications will only be shown on the notification panel and the notifications sound for that particular app will be turned off. Siri will give suggestions based on some app actions based on your smartphone usage. And perhaps most importantly, grouped notifications will allow you to swipe and clear a whole group of notifications all at once.

The new tools will be available with iOS 12 this fall (between September and December), said Apple.
