IPhone to add new feature that will stop texting while driving

Apple executive Craig Federighi made the announcement Monday at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California.

The new OS gives iPads a redesigned dock at the bottom of the screen that acts more like the dock on an iMac. At the moment, the iPhone's NFC chip is useless for anything other than Apple's in-house payment system, but the new framework appears to let the chip in the latest iPhones read any tags - not just Apple Pay tags - and take action on them based on the phone's location. It also acts as an app switcher: dragging the app icon from the dock to the screen will open it next to the app that is now open. The Files app also contains files from third-party apps such as Dropbox.

Apple announced this week that it will soon add a new feature called "Do Not Disturb While Driving", which will be part of its new iOS 11, according to CNN Money. This can be deactivated if the user is a passenger.

Trump won't say if Comey conversations were taped

Cavs' best effort not good enough to beat the Warriors
Things looked good for the Cavs when they put up a 33-point third quarter and carried their momentum into the fourth. One more victory, and the Warriors will have their second championship in three seasons.

With the iOS 11 update, all of the 32-bit apps in Apple Stores will be rendered useless and can no longer run on a newer version.

This suggests that it could be meant more for users with speech impairments and allow them to interact with Siri in text form, but either way it's still a pretty cool feature that you could check out in the future with iOS 11's release. Featuring a new space gray enclosure, iMac Pro packs advanced graphics editing, virtual reality content creation and real-time 3D rendering. iMac Pro is scheduled to ship in December starting at $4,999 (US).

As a member of the beta program, you'll also be able to test out the public beta of macOS High Sierra if you have a Mac. Here, users can access pre-released software and have the option to provide feedback to Apple using the built-in Feedback Assistant app.
