What We Know About Apple's Business Chat So Far

At Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference held on Monday, June 5, the company shared that iOS 11 would include a Do Not Disturb While Driving mode. Apple's goal with them is to specifically let developers test new versions of their apps against the new software features... which might break Wi-Fi or crash apps or force them to jiggle randomly or just freeze completely. As an added bonus, iOS 11 testers say Apple is finally letting users play GIF animations natively in the Photos app.

Earlier this year Apple CEO Tim Cook was spotted wearing a glucose monitor that many believed linked up with the Apple Watch.

As a way to compete with the likes of Facebook and Twitter, Apple is bringing a feature called Business Chat to iOS 11. Most of the features that the iOS 11 will be bringing in have been requested for quite a while by the fans.

Speaking about the possibilities, Brandon Ballinger, founder of health-tracking app Cardiogram, said: "This new bluetooth API may seem like a small detail, but with it, Apple is laying the right technical foundation". The latter closes the world out, he said, whereas augmented reality can (in theory) improve what is happening at that time. "I view AR like I view the silicon here in my iPhone, it's not a product per se, it's a core technology".

The device is equipped with six different microphones so that users can use their voices to interact with the device fluently and effectively "even while loud music is playing", according to Apple. In the new operating system, it'll be 64-bit-or-nothing - Apple is also removing 32-bit app compatibility from the entire OS stack. The success of Pokemon Go has proved that people have an appetite for interaction with virtual objects on a screen and ARKit is a natural fit in terms of what we want to do with our smartphones.

Apple has not revealed if the feature can be turned off or how the technology will differentiate passengers from drivers.

Apple's iOS launches are a regular yearly occurrence, so nobody was surprised when Apple took to the stage with version 11 yesterday.

Siri will also be able to translate English words and phrases into different languages.
