IPhone to add new feature that will stop texting while driving

The new safety feature will be part of Apple's iOS 11 coming this fall.

Apple last week announced the upgrade of its iOS software to iOS 11 at its developers' conference. "When you are driving you don't need to be responding to these kind of messages".

The iPhone screen will also be locked to prevent drivers from using many of their apps while driving. Other handy features include an automatic login to new devices simply by bringing it close to a Mac or other iOS 11 devices.

Until now, the only app able to make use of the iPhone's NFC capabilities was Apple Pay.

"By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways", according to Apple.

Queensland police killer shot dead after 21-hour siege
On Monday, Queensland Police Commissioner Ian Stewart said he wanted to resolve the siege "as peacefully as humanly possible". That stand-off is continuing this morning, with officers in contact with Maddison, who is in a shipping container.

Apple appears to be solving this problem in iOS 11. Geskin also posted schematic images that purport to show the design of the new iPhone.

Until now, third parties have not been able to use the tech on the iPhone.

Do Not Disturb works like this: When the iPhone sense the auto is moving, or if it's connected to the vehicle via cable or Bluetooth, the phone automatically blocks notifications from arriving.

This so called "dark mode" has always been rumoured and could help to make looking the iPhone at night easier on the eye. Moreover, this technical feature also disregards many scenarios where communication to others can be important or even necessary, especially during a life-threatening situation. Similarly, an iPhone user can designate some break-through contacts who can bypass the mode and one gets calls and texts from them.

The new version of its mobile operating system, iOS 11, will bar notifications from popping up if a phone is connected to a auto, Apple revealed at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
