Bloomberg says Apple will unveil ARKit 2.0, Digital Health and more at WWDC
According to a new report from Bloomberg, WWDC 2018, set to kick off next Monday, will unveil Apple's Digital Health initiative. This is Apple's response to those who say that the company has a responsibility to make its devices less "addictive." Digital Health will include a series of tools that will allow users to monitor the amount of time they spend using their Apple devices. People familiar with the company's plans say that this information will be found inside the Settings app in iOS 12.

Apple is expected to introduce an upgrade to ARKit 2.0. This will provide developers with improved tools to create better AR apps. According to Bloomberg, Apple has been working on a mode that will allow users to play AR games head-to-head using the same "virtual background." Another mode being developed lets users drop an item into an area where it will remain in place. As we've pointed out numerous times, Apple CEO Tim Cook is extremely high on the potential of AR.

Today's report says that Apple will be making small changes in iOS 12 to some of its features dealing with stocks, snoozing notifications, FaceTime and sharing Animoji.

June 4th is when WWDC 2018 kicks off and you should check in often for the latest news coming from Apple's annual developers conference.
