Every year Apple organizes a WWDC for the developers and companies that are into iOS development. The main highlight of the event was iOS 12. This year the meet was more of a software-focused where CEO Tim Cook & his staff talked about macOS 10.14 Mojave, watchOS 5 and tvOS 12. Surprisingly this year there was no point discussed on hardware where as last year they did give a glimpse of HomePod, iPad Pro 12.9 and iPad Pro 10.5.
After Google Extended I/O all the developers, mobile app companies and tech savvy people have been waiting for the Apple WWDC 2018. There was a lot answering to be done by Apple software specially for the annoying iOS 11 problems. There was no wow factor about the WWDC 2018, attendees found it underwhelming. But developers definitely got an idea of what they all will be working on in 2018. This will allow them to plan and can also download iOS 12 developer beta too.
They confirmed iOS 12 and ARKit 2.0. For the first time viewers could sneak-peek into the iOS 12 features.There are many changes in the iOS 12 that people have been waiting for. Let’s take a closer look at some of the features of iOS 12 and ARKit 2.0.

It has also said the the keyboard on iPhone 6S Plus will now be 50% faster, the camera will be able to click 70% faster. Though there were some disappointments as iOS12 has nothing interesting yet.
Where as ARKit 2.0 had some interesting features to share. AR & Apple’s ARKit development platform had been showcased, where Apple is teaming with Pixar to build a new format to allow users to share the AR content.
Boasting the advantages of the digital & physical worlds merging in a new app called Measure. This allows users to use AR to see the size of the item by just dragging their finger through the item when you point your camera to it. Examples they showed were of a suitcase and photo frame.
The Photo App got better with a new search feature. It also has a “For You” tab that suggests what could possibly be done with images you saved.
