Apple is set to unveil software that helps cure iPhone addiction

According to several reports, Apple plans to announce new versions of its many operating systems, including iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

According to Bloomberg, Apple will introduce a new set of digital wellbeing features for iOS users at its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in San Jose on Monday. Though, you do require Apple devices including iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 10 or later in order to watch the live-stream. This year, Apple plans to focus on performance and stability improvements over major new features or UI overhauls. iOS 12 will likely include more ways manage your usage of your digital device usage.

Full details on the new technology stack are still unknown, but we can expect to hear a lot more about it from WWDC on Monday. Former Facebook president Sean Parker stated Facebook's design exploited weakness in the human psyche to addict users, and said he anxious about what it was doing to kids' brains. It's also hard to imagine that technology this advanced - which Apple's rivals still can not match - would make its way the cheapest iPhone so soon.

Now the industry giants are putting some of these principles into practice. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook sees the technology as potentially revolutionary as the smartphone. But this year, a suite of new gadgets is unlikely. If those updates are announced, I don't expect Apple to raise the corresponding models' prices, so that could prove another boon for business users.

Apple is rolling out its latest iOS 11.4 software update for iPhones and today we are going to cover everything there is to know about it.

Apple eventually hopes to make the Apple TV the main viewing hub for its upcoming war chest of original video, so the company will need to maintain interest in the device. The same goes for a redesigned iPad Pro family with Face ID built-in. That could include the announcement of ARKit 2 with new support for multiplayer modes in AR-based games.

Earlier this week, Apple updated the HomePod with stereo and multi-room music listening modes and the ability to add calendar appointments.

But that device was delayed and generally met with lackluster reviews if you were looking for a capable digital assistant on par with Amazon's Echo and Google's Home products. Unlike past year, there will be no announcements pertaining to the company's Mac lineup. It's been rumored previously that Apple wants to bring iOS apps to Mac computers. More significant changes will take time.
