Apple also informed that FaceTime will also features filters and Animoji, along with firm's new Memoji.

Cupertino based conglomerate Apple announced watchOS 5 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2018, now being held in San Jose, California. Rather, they were shown to let software developers start building apps to make iPhones and other Apple devices more useful.

That's not all that Apple Watch wearers can look forward to.

The fitness of the body and mind is a prime concern of the company for which it launched its Apple Watch.

Devices using the Chrome and Firefox browsers should be able to watch it as well.

Finally, Apple has now eliminated the need to say "Hey Siri", before giving a command or asking a question to the virtual assistant on the Watch. For starters, the Watch will now be able to detect when you start an activity, even though you may have forgotten to start one for tracking on the Watch.

Barca Set Umtiti Release Clause at $585m
Manchester United haven't been alone in pursuit of the player, with Real Madrid linked with a shock move for him as well. Before putting pen to paper on a fresh five-year deal, Manchester United had been eyeing a deal for the Frenchman.


The update comes as Apple tries to extend AR experiences to a broader population, rather than just hard-core, tech-savvy users.

The event has been live-streamed at various platforms. iPhone, iPad and Mac users can head to the official website on Safari and stream the live event. Apple confirms that all the other Apple Watch models will receive watchOS 5 update this year.

The Siri upgrade will integrate the voice-based technology with more outside apps. "In April, it poached a top Google executive to lead its machine learning and AI efforts".

iOS 12 will come out later this year, it'll be supported on every single device that runs iOS 11 right now. "It may be too soon for any big changes, but Apple could preview the Siri improvements it hopes to make".

Apple introduced new controls for limiting how much time customers spend on their devices as the company tackles criticism that its devices are becoming increasingly addictive and distracting. On the day 1 of the event, the Cupertino company announced new software updates to iOS, macOS, and watchOS following months of endless rumors and speculation.

Parents will be able to set limits for time their children set in apps, and get detailed reports regarding which apps are used. Then in March it unveiled a new web page created to help educate parents about existing controls on the phone.
