According to the new report, Apple will address recent concerns over device addiction with Digital Health, a collection of settings and usage monitoring tools that will help users reduce device and specific app usage.

Apple released its ARKit software in 2017, which allows app developers to easily build augmented reality features. Google recently unveiled similar AR object-saving functionality under the name Cloud Anchors at its I/O developers' conference, sweetening its offering by including both Android and iOS compatibility.

Apple iOS 12 will have a Digital Health feature, which will let users monitor their tech usage, and help curb tech addiction.

Currently, NIV-Pune is the only medical institute in the country where Nipah virus infection tests are being carried out. One concern is that any time a virus infects a human, it is in an environment that selects for survival in that context.

Not much is now known about macOS 10.14-however, Apple is known to be working on a software development framework to bring macOS and iOS applications closer together. The features will be a prelude of what's to come from an Apple AR headset planned for as early as 2020. As to the aforementioned ambitious iOS features that have been pushed back to iOS 13, the report notes that the list includes a "redesigned Home Screen for launching apps and presenting snippets of information, an artificial intelligence upgrade to the Photos app, and new file-management tools for iPads".

Taking rough estimates into account, the iPhone SE 2 screen protector shows the screen size much smaller than that of the iPhone X. So it can be said that the SE 2 will feature more or less the same screen estate but packed in a smaller form factor with all thanks to minimized bezels. While rumors of new MacBooks, MacBook Pros, iPad Pros, and possibly MacBook Airs have circulated for months, none are expected to debut next week. He also says that Apple will be showing off new Animoji features at the conference, alongside another big augmented reality announcement. That said, reports have suggested that Apple might not announce any hardware at this event. A store with additional watch faces could be a major draw for the platform, but it has not been rumored ahead of the event. Let's wait for few more days to get the official confirmation staright from WWDC keynote.
