A beta version of iOS 12 will probably be opened up for Apple developers in the coming days or even hours, but most users will have to wait until later this year to try it out. Apple iOS 12, macOS 10.14, tvOS 12 and watchOS 5 will be revealed during the keynote, which will be almost two hours long.

Apple is also planning an update to ARKit, its platform for developers to build augmented-reality experiences on iPhone and iPads, which it initially announced past year.

Using drag and drop steps, you can save the voice commands within individual apps.

Federighi noted that while just 6 percent of Android handsets have the latest version of Google's mobile operating system installed, 81 percent of Apple users have iOS 11 - and the wide range of supported devices for iOS 12 means this impressive statistic is likely to remain pretty much unchanged.

Finally, the firm issued many updates to built-in apps. iBooks is now Apple Books, the News and Stock apps have merged, Siri gained a new shortcut feature that will let users set up macros. So, with this new functionality, you can say, "Siri I lost my keys", which could then launch Tile. Apple has also grouped together notifications by topic and app, to make apps a little less annoying. This will no doubt create a much more manageable user experience.

ARKit 2 was introduced during the event as well, giving developers access to awesome new AR tools such as the ability to have multiple devices see the same 3D virtual objects in AR from different perspectives. You can now search for your favourite channels, news sources, and more. We'll find out more about what else iOS 12 will bring as WWDC 2018 continues this week.

Leroy Sane left out of Germany squad
It is Sane's omission which is seen as most shocking, after a standout season with Pep Guardiola's runaway Premier League winners. Bayern Munich goalkeeper Neuer made his first appearance since September in the 2-1 defeat by Austria in a friendly on Saturday.

Apple is expected to launch an exciting new iPhone feature to address a problem it helped create: phone addiction. The reports suggests that at some point Apple is planning on overhauling the traditional app grid, CarPlay interface, Mail app, and photography and camera software. As part of all this, there is a new Shortcuts app by Apple.

On your iPhone or iPad go to the same Apple link you need to on desktop and you'll be able to tune-in.

Notably, parents will be able to use Screen Time for kids to see how they're using their devices, create "allowances", limit apps, content and control privacy settings. And if you send a photo to a phone, their own app will search through their photos for ones that they might want to send back. Lord help us all.

Unlike Facebook and Google, Apple's business doesn't depend on gathering data to sell ads (though it does collect user data for ads in places like the App Store).

iOS 12 seems like a meaningful step forward for the operating system.
