It remains to be seen whether or not this new group FaceTime feature will run smoothly when iOS 12 launches later this year.

Apple's Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi debuted Measure on stage this afternoon at Apple's yearly developer's conference, WWDC.

Also arriving on iOS 12 for iPad this year is iPhone's proprietary Voice Memo utility, which will allow Apple tablet users to create voice memos just like on iPhone.

"With iOS 12, we're enabling new experiences that weren't possible before".

Apple's WWDC focused on software updates like new privacy features in Safari.

Facebook's chief security officer Alex Stamos immediately took issue with the move, questioning on Twitter whether it was a serious effort to protect privacy or "just cute virtue signaling". That means you might be able to squeeze another 6 months or a year out of your older model phone. People who are sent photos on iOS 12 will then be prompted to send their own photos from the same event. In other words, if you choose to reset the alternate appearance, you'll also have to clear out all existing data around your own face, too. It will also work for searching for pictures taken at businesses and other places like museums.

This next-generation software, which powers billions of devices across the globe, could be in line for plenty of new features and upgrades. These are little app actions you can string together and assign a spoken activation phrase to.

App Limits: You can now limit your app usage, but you can ignore the limit if you want to.

Siri will also provide new suggestions, such as prompting a user to turn on Do Not Disturb on their phone when entering a movie.

We'll be back with more iOS 12-related tidbits as we come across them so stay tuned for more. The Verge calls it a cross between Bitmoji and Nintendo's Mii characters. Also Apple is introducing a way for users to make custom Animojis called a Memoji that are basically avatars that you can customize to look like you.

This feature sees alerts from one app or conversation bundled or stacked into one notification. This means you can finally use Google Maps, Waze and other apps on your dashboard screen when your iPhone is connected in the vehicle.

You'll no longer need to log with a cable account over and over again to access content via Apple TV. With a single app for all machines, Mac, iPad and iPhone users will get new features at the same time.

You will also be able to set time limits for how long you want to use certain apps on daily basis. One of those was Siri shortcuts, which are basically customizable voice commands that can connect with any app, and is Apple's way of telling iOS developers that there is a reason to care about Siri.

This includes a new dynamic user interface which shows all callers in a group FaceTime video call as tiles which adjust in size and position, depending on who is talking. Also of note is that FaceTime is gaining support for group chats that'll support up to 32 participants at once. This feature got the most reaction on my Twitter page.
