Apple to update iOS to prevent distracted driving accidents

Posted June 11, 2017

When an app developer releases a new update in the App Store, all their lovely reviews disappear in the ether.

Nissan plans to stop distracted drivers with tech from the Victorian era.

At Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference held on Monday, June 5, the company shared that iOS 11 would include a Do Not Disturb While Driving mode.

Dry drowning may have claimed child's life
Doctors told the Delgados Frankie died from " dry drowning; " something they'd never heard of before that day. The condition laypeople define as "dry drowning " happens when a person aspirates water into his or her lungs.

Pete Williams, spokesman for the RAC's Be Phone Smart campaign, supported the innovation saying, "These days it is less phone calls and more the pings and buzzes of texts and social media apps that have the potential to distract a driver from the task at hand". Well the app itself isn't affected, and drivers will still be able to access the Maps application, although they won't be able to enter or change destination info when on the move.

If the iPhone is connected to a auto via Bluetooth or a cable, or if the vehicle is moving, the "Do Not Disturb" feature can automatically mute notifications like text messages and news updates.

Say an iPad running iOS 11 is already connected to the network and a new iOS 11 device such as an iPhone needs to connect to the same network.

Meanwhile, the iOS 11 update will improve digital assistant Siri's voice and language capabilities with the help of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

iOS 11 will come with lots of features which will make the iPhone and iPad even easier to use. Geskin also posted schematic images that purport to show the design of the new iPhone. Other than that, if the iPhone's system detects the car's moving speed using the Wi-Fi antenna, the feature will be switched on. Passengers who're not driving can disable the feature so their phones work normally.
