Apple Wants to Curb Distracted Driving with New iPhone Setting

Apple WWDC 2017 Apple Wants to Curb Distracted Driving with New iPhone Setting
Frank Williams | 10 June, 2017, 16:50

Apple is set to introduce a new iPhone feature created to prevent distracted driving by blocking notifications while owners of such phones are behind the wheel.

While your old iPhone 5 or 5C will still work, you won't be able to take advantage of periodic software updates or security fixes from Apple because your phone will no longer be able to support them.

The "Do Not Disturb While Driving" setting will automatically silence incoming texts and notifications while an iPhone is connected to a auto via Bluetooth or cable, the tech giant announced Monday.

The iPhone screen will lock in order to prevent drivers from using most of their apps while driving. But most of us don't have that kind of time.

There are lots of new features in iOS 11 that will make the operating system more usable on iPhones and iPads.

If someone does text you while you're driving, the phone can respond with an automatic message telling them you're driving and can't respond just now. The passengers can disable this DND feature.

But for now, Durant will have to embrace it, and continue his NBA Finals dominance against the Cavaliers defense. Cleveland had collapsed in the third quarter of the first two games, letting the Warriors run away and hide.

There are also updates and user interface improvements for Apple Music, Apple News, AirPlay 2, Home, App Store, Control Centre and App Store for iMessage.

"It's all about keeping your eyes on the road", stated Apple's Craig Federighi.

Apple has announced their latest iOS version at WWDC 2017 as expected. You also have to unlock your iPhone or iPad before you can share your Wi-Fi connection, for security reasons.

Ms Vlahomitros said the risks of using a phone while driving were clear.

U.S. today said that roughly 46 states prohibit texting while driving.

A year back Samsung, which majorly launches devices based on the Android operating system, had launched a budget-centric J series smartphonew ith S Bike Mode. However, there are still ways advocates are looking for ways to lower the usage of texting while driving.

Taking it one step further, the new feature will also lock the iPhone screen, keeping drivers from using apps, too, CNN reported.
