With this substantial update, Apple plans to allow users to set limits for how long they can use certain applications_accessible from System Preferences on their macOS. The main purpose behind this update is to help users control and monitor their iPhone usage by setting up a time limit.
Next important update is Siri Shortcuts that is a standalone app allowing users to create app-specific shortcuts to use with Siri. Much more, it gives you a level of customization to automate everyday tasks with voice-activated shortcuts.
Other than that, Apple Watch is also included in the new features that will be launched. The upcoming Apple Watch is said to make it more independent from the iPhone, and adds enhancements to the health tracking capabilities as well as a Calculator and a Books app for listening to audiobooks from your wrist.
