Apple IOS 18

During the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference which took place some days ago. Apple revealed some important features coming to IOS 18. I will be honest, some new additions didn’t excite me but some were okay. This time, I will talk about all features revealed for IOS 18 and I will also talk about other details revealed about other Apple products revealed at the WWDC 2024 conference. This would be my third article regarding the conference.

IOS 18 updates

So the IOS 18 is going to feature screen customization. IPhone users will now be able to move screen icons. This feature seems to be standard on Android but it is good Apple is doing something. The IOS 18 will feature dark theme for app icons. Users can also change the color palette of an app icon on the display with the new customization sheet. To access this customization sheet, tap on your screen for some seconds, you then click on the edit option which pops up and then click on customizations. The IOS 18 will have a new feature which lets users lock apps and hide them on face ID. This is for better security. Control center will also get more customizations along with different widget groups for instance media playback and this can be done by swiping vertically.

iMessage update plus other apps

IOS 18 will also have several App updates. They include an iMessage update, Mail, Maps, Wallet and Photos. The iMessage update will feature emoji tapbacks, message scheduling and text formatting (bold, italicize, underline, strike through). This will also include text effects. Wallet users can now tap other devices to send cash through Apple Pay. Photos was fully redesigned and will feature more picture customizations along with more categories. Messages via satellite is another new feature which enables Users (IPhone 14 and newer) and text others across the globe through satellite without requiring cellular data or WiFI.

WatchOS 11 Updates

The WatchOS 11 is going to give people a better idea on workouts impact the body taking into account calorimetric data such as heart rate, pace and elevation and personal data such as age and weigh which translates the data into an effort rating. This is because of the new feature “Training Load”. The training app now has a summary screen which reviews your workout effort rating (can be customizable). Effort rating and workout duration are then used to calculate your Training load and the ability to pause circles-goals in case of an injury. The new Vitals App will be able to collect your daily data and give you a summary of your overall health

MacOS Sequoia

The MacOS 15 also known as MacOS Sequoia was confirmed during this conference. The MacOS Sequoia will let users mirror your iPhone to your Mac. When this feature is in use, your IPhone stays locked. A Keyboard and Mouse can also be used during this process. The phone can be accessed by clicking on the dock. The MacOS Sequoia will support autofill across each device.


This should conclude all important announcements at the WWDC Event by Apple. Updates were given for IOS 18, IPadOS 18, Apple Intelligence and Siri, Apps, Apple Airpods and also WatchOS 11. Some updates were good such as Apple Intelligence meanwhile others were just mediocre for instance moving app icons but Apple needs to start at some point.
