One of the many features coming with iOS 12 is Siri Shortcuts. The new iOS 12 comes with improved AR experiences, like Memoji, "Measure" app, multi-user AR experiences, Siri Suggestions and a lot more. Apple's internet browser will effectively block "Like" or "Share" buttons and comment widgets from tracking cookies (and therefore your browsing movements) without your permission. Also, there's a new name called Apple Books for audio books and e-books. But before that, Apple introduced some major upgrades to nearly all its platforms, starting with the much-anticipated iOS 12.

Apple iOS 12 compatible devices include iPhone 5s and later, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad 5th generation, iPad 6th generation, iPad mini 2 and later and iPod touch 6th generation. The conference, where Apple interacts with its developer community, has been an annual feature since 1989. Usually, it revolves around Apple discussing updates regarding its current software built for different devices such as iOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. There will be a new Shortcuts app, too, that according to the press release will allow users "to create a series of actions from different apps that can be carried out with a simple tap or customized voice command".

-With iOS 12, CarPlay will support third-party navigation apps like Google Maps. Apple watchOS 5 now comes with Apple Podcasts as well. Apple also announces "Memojis". The Pride Edition Woven Nylon band will be available in India at a starting price of Rs 3,900. The news are curated by Apple Editors. The zero sign-on feature will work with Charter Spectrum (and its 50 million subscribers) later this year, but Apple says it's working to expand this feature to work with other TV providers in the future. Apple TV simply detects the user's broadband network and automatically signs them in to all the supported apps they receive through their subscription - no typing required. It is the most incredible app market the world has ever seen. The next OS version is expected to come with several new app features.

"We're excited to provide our joint customers with easy access to downloads and updates by bringing Office to the newly redesigned Mac App Store". The new design highlights new and updated apps in the Discover tab, while tabs for Create, Work, Play and Develop help users find apps for a specific project or objective.
