As SiliconANGLE reported May 31, iOS 12 will deliver a new set of tools created to help consumers keep their mobile usage in check as part of its Digital Health initiative, with a dedicated section becoming available in a new section of the iOS 12 settings menu.

Apple won't announce new MacBook and iPad Pro models at the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, according to Bloomberg, but that doesn't mean they won't get their due updates eventually. Given the flurry of issues that iOS 11 raised, the iOS 12 update may focus on improving reliability and performance on the devices it powers.

The precise details of how Apple's new system will work, or if it would support three or more players, were not available. Now Reuters reports that iOS 12 will introduce phone-to-phone AR - so two devices will be able to see the same scene, in sync, in augmented reality.

Apple iOS 12 NFC features: The functionality of NFC or Near-Field Communication feature, which is now used for payments in Apple Pay, could be expanded for verifying identity, unlocking doors, etc. Currently, NFC can only be used for Apple Pay. Xcode, Apple's programming platform, is reported to be getting an upgrade and, as per the iOS news, Apple will also likely add support for cross-platform apps on macOS.

Regardless, maybe we will get an official name for the next macOS update tomorrow.

Despite fully fledged iOS apps making their way to macOS, Apple is planning on bringing elements from iOS and UIKit and adapting them to work on macOS. This new feature is said to come up as a part of the next-gen iOS version, which is probably known to be iOS 12.

Rumours indicate the refresh will be coming later this year.

Apple on Monday took the stage in California to tell us all about its newest software innovations, and hardware wasn't on the menu, just as we expected.

There are not many leaks about watchOS 5, except for a new watchface that is inspired by the pride movement.

There will be several other announcements in regards with macOS, watchOS and tvOS as well. The division's revenue surged by 31 percent from the previous year in Apple's most recent quarter. The name of the tested hardware led observers to suspect that it is referring to an all-new MacBook Pro model that measures 14.3 inches. Expectations are also high about the introduction of iPhone SE 2 at the conference. It could be the same small form factor as the iPhone SE, but with an "all-display" front and Face ID technology found in the iPhone X. It will be interesting if an iPhone SE 2 is launched. So it will be no surprise if this year is another "hardware-less" WWDC.
