IPhone to add new feature that will stop texting while driving

It also announced new versions of the iMac desktop computer, the iPad Pro tablet and a voice-activated and AI-driven speaker.So what is new in iOS 11?

Developers who have gotten their hands on the iOS 11 beta, however, have shared some evidence that there's still hope for smartphone productivity enthusiasts: multiple screencap videos posted to Twitter show off the new functionality working on the iPhone, too.

More updates should follow.

Apple junkies now have the option to activate the location tracking only while using the app. Passengers who are just riding, and not driving, will have the ability to disable the feature. "Reinstalling the app will place back your data if the app is still available in the App Store", says Apple in its description of the feature.

The QuickType keyboard will have letters, symbols, punctuation marks and numbers on the same keyboard to eliminate toggling between keyboards. It will help those who find typing on a large screen hard as they would be able to adjust the size of the keyboard layout according to the preferred size or side.

Apple has included the setting in its new iOS 11 software update, which will be rolled out later this year, and it is believed it will keep motorists and other road users safer.

On the plus side for developers, using Apple's official interface for reviews also may increase the response rate because the review prompt allows the user to leave a review without leaving the app. It also automatically notifies your friend that you're driving so that they can contact you later.

Furthermore, the iOS 11 made a major facelift in the Control Center.

iOS 11 will support indoor mall and airport maps around the world. What's more? You can even customise it to add your favourite apps.

To access the Apple Beta Software Program, you need to sign up using your Apple ID.

A new feature which stops a driver receiving notifications on an iPhone when it detects the device is in a auto is being introduced to the next version of the phone's operating system.
