	Apple’s new ‘app limits’ feature can help curb smartphone use	 
                  By Jane Burnett   Jun 5 2018

iOS 12 is available as a developer beta to developers starting today, a public beta will be available later this month, expect the final release of the software update to be available by fall, presumably around September or October in conjunction with the launch of Apple's new iPhones.

The addition of these features was previously leaked by Bloomberg, but the details on how they worked wasn't yet known.

The feature is among the many changes Apple has brought to iOS 12.

This iOS 12 beta downgrade to iOS 11 guide shows you how to uninstall the iOS 12 beta and go back to iOS 11 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

In Control Center, you can configure when Do Not Disturb will end, as well.

In a response to The Sun, Shift said that they are not having any pleasure in going after Apple and also said that Apple can keep the logo if they wish, but has to compensate them for redesigning a new logo for themselves. Siri also got a small upgrade. That means notifications will not just be grouped by app, but also by topic and thread.

You can download the software through Xcode, which is what programmers use to build iPhone apps.




According to Cult of Mac, which earlier reported on the feature, you'll activate Live Listen from iOS 12.

This involves a weekly activity summary that shows you how you used your iPhone or iPad during the week. You can also see which apps are sending you the most notifications, so you can make better decisions about which apps' notifications you may want to disable. When your time is about up, you'll get an alert, and when the time is up, a new "Times Up" screen comes up.

There likely will be more announcements made later this summer on other new features coming to the new Mac App Store. That way, parents can make sure critical apps will still work even during downtime, like the Phone app or Books. Let us know below. This feature works with Family Sharing. This process erases the the device completely and then installs iOS 11.4.

Apple has not been accused for the first time.

New AR features include a new measure app that can determine the size of almost anything placed in front of the camera.

There are also improvements to passwords with Safari now also automatically creating autofills and stores strong passwords when users create new online accounts and flags reused passwords so users can change them.

With concerns growing over our smartphone addictions, Apple is introducing a tool to help users better manage their time on their devices.
