iPhone will get 'Do Not Disturb While Driving' mode in iOS 11 this fall

Apple Joins Smart-Speaker Race With Music-Focused 'HomePod'

Phones connected to cars with Bluetooth capabilities, or through a cable, will withhold any notifications from texts or news updates while the auto is in motion, CNN Money reported. However, the decision is bound to blindside many parties who don't keep up with such tech-y news, and users still comfortable with the now-obsolete devices.

Joel Feldman also lost his daughter to a distracted driver in 2009, and founded the advocacy group End Distracted Driving. You can now open a second app from the Dock and use Slide Over as well as Split View to switch between them. Apple demoed a 3D video on a table that showed a battle with flying ships, exploding buildings and more, all while looked at through an iPad. Apple promises that iOS 11 will make your "iPad experience even more powerful and personal". The tablet version of iPad Pro's operating system is expected to receive some superior updates including expanded support for an Apple Pencil and multi-user login. Siri now supports on-device learning for "personal experiences" across a range of apps, such as the ability to suggest topics while browsing in Safari.

So, here's how you turn your iPhone into Dark Mode for iOS 11 beta according to Business Insider. One chief executive calls it a "game-changer". The company's iCloud storage plans can now be shared between members of your iCloud Family.

If that's not enough, the feature will also be optional for passengers, but can be disabled if they need to focus on other activities, such as DJing, providing directions and changing the radio station.

However, the likelihood of users taking notice is slim, as all major apps such as Facebook, Twitter, or Uber already are on a 64-bit processor.

The update won't be available to the general public until this fall but I just couldn't wait that long. It's actually kind of useful - typing in a URL takes a while.

How Apple's Do Not Disturb while Driving mode will affect the iPhone's integration with infotainment systems such as Ford's SYNC 3, which offers Apple CarPlay right out of the box, is uncertain. Aren't you glad you asked?
