It's today, Monday June 4. Alongside these changes, the Do Not Disturb system also got new features. Here's a look at what to expect at this year's WWDC.

As part of its efforts to grow in the voice assistant world, Apple released the Siri-powered HomePod in February, bringing its first smart speaker to the market.

"You can make decisions about how much time you'd like to spend with your device each day", Apple's Craig Frederici told developers.

Apple on Monday introduced a new app for Siri called Shortcuts, which lets users create personalized requests for the voice assistant. Sure, you can bring everything back to normal by simply performing a downgrade, but you will lose all your files and settings therefore take a backup of everything using iTunes or iCloud before you even think about going ahead.

iPhone: The star of the show will be iOS 12. That, Federighi says, has been a particular area of focus for Apple this past year.

And it's not just new devices which will benefit, as Apple said iOS 12 will be available on all the same devices as iOS 11 is. Apple also showed off a new AR tool, Measure, that turns your phone into an $800 ruler. The refreshed interface is said to include a "Reading Now" tab as well. It introduced a capability called Siri Shortcuts that works with third-party applications.

Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference kicks off in a just few short hours, and if you're not lucky enough to attend in person, don't sweat it.

iOS 12 Beta 1 is available for developers - or anyone else who is keen to take a look - to download via the Apple Developer Program portal.

The new iOS will also get you complete weekly reports of how you use your device, what sends you notifications, what time you spent on different apps, among other thorough statistics. In a post on Daring Fireball, John Gruber revealed that the Mac OS store could get an entirely new design.

Apple is about to try to make us love our iPhones a little less.

Apple is making bold claims about the performance improvements on the way with iOS 12 to hardware old and new.

While no new major gadgets will be previewed or launched at this week's five-day conference, that doesn't mean Apple is falling behind when it comes to new products. There's a couple of new "features" but nothing that feels as extravagant as an updated home screen.
