IPhones will block texts while driving in new update

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 13 percent of all fatal distraction-related crashes in 2014 could be attributed to drivers distracted by their cellphones.

Do Not Disturb can automatically silence notifications to keep the screen dark and stop drivers being distracted.

Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, first announced the new feature at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, USA Today reported.

But Pakistan, the USA report noted, was already the primary market in the Asian-Pacific region for Chinese arms exports. However, officials admitted that figure could not account for all spending due to poor accounting transparency.

Of course, iOS 11 is still in early beta stages, meaning it's entirely possible that Apple could change or remove a feature completely by the time the OS releases this fall.

"By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways", according to Apple.

If the iPhone is connected to the vehicle via Bluetooth, the system will be able to pick up whether the user is driving or not.

Spicer won't say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions
Tuesday afternoon, White House press secretary Sean Spicer declined to say whether Trump has confidence in Sessions. Sessions' recusal meant that the deputy attorney general would oversee the FBI investigation.

However, Apple has given users the liberty to set an automated text message, which will be sent to family or friends while the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature is on.

Meanwhile, the iOS 11 update will improve digital assistant Siri's voice and language capabilities with the help of machine learning and artificial intelligence. This selection will prompt the smartphone's system to shut down the feature.

iOS 11 will come with lots of features which will make the iPhone and iPad even easier to use. Passengers who're not driving can disable the feature so their phones work normally.

Minnesota joins U.S. Climate Alliance
What the Climate Alliance ends up doing will determine if the actions taken count as an impermissible interstate compact. Trump has called it a "job-killing regulation" and ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to review the plan .

Apple's iOS 11 beings a wide range of new features to the iPhone and iPad and it brings a complete redesign to the app store.
