Apple showcased its latest software for the iPhone and iPad, iOS 12, Monday at its Worldwide Developer Conference in San Jose, California.
Top software executive Craig Federighi said Apple is "doubling down on performance" in the latest update to make devices faster and more responsive. It's also making some pretty serious changes:
The photos app will also get an overhaul. Users will soon see photos suggestions based on key places or categories. You can also search for catch-all criteria like "sporting events."
A new photo sharing feature will suggest contacts you might want to share an album with based on who appears in the photos.
"When your friend receives them, something really magical happens," Federighi said. "Their phone searches their libraries for other photos they took at that event and suggests that they share them back to you, so you both can end up will a full set."
Apple's annual conference is an opportunity to introduce its latest products and features that developers can include in apps for the iPhone and other devices. Apple typically teases iOS updates at the conference and rolls out major changes later in the year.
The new software will be available on all the same devices as iOS 11, Federighi said.
"This is the largest base ever supported by an Apple release, and we're focusing our efforts especially on the oldest devices," he said.
