Apple Boosts iOS Augmented Reality Development with ARKit 2

The software, which powers the iPhone and iPad, packs a slew of new features aimed at improving your device's performance, as well as fun augmented reality tools. The official version of iOS 12 won't arrive until the fall alongside the company's 2018 iPhones, but you'll be able to try iOS 12 and its changes long before Apple finalizes the software. Independent developer, Esa Helttula has announced the availability of AppSalesTrends 2.30 the important update to his App Store sales tracking app for macOS. iOS and macOS developers can download and analyze sales information from the App Store.

Apple also introduce a new AR app coming to iOS 12 called Measure that allows users to use their camera to look at an object and simply use your finger to point out what you want measured.

A more realistic, and better, usage scenario for Screen Time is for parents to control their children's phone usage.

Just a couple of days ago we asked you what is your favorite iOS 12 feature in a poll and the results are now in: your best-favored feature are the performance improvements that make everything in iOS run smoother. Parents can also add time limits to specific apps, allowing children on their phones for a select amount of time.

Two other big features of iOS 12 that will prove popular with most users is group FaceTime that supports up to 32 people in one video call, and "Me-Moji" (exclusive to iPhone X), which is like the Animoji from a year ago, but improved to allow users to create a likeness of themselves.
