iOS 18 Brings New Tapback Features and Text Over Satellite

Tech
Speaker 1: IOS 18 is a big release that delivers more ways to customize your iPhone, stay connected and relive special moments. You can already customize your home screen with your favorite wallpaper apps and widgets, letting your personality shine through, and now your app icons and widgets can add even more. I have this photo I love as my wallpaper, and now I can continue to enjoy it when I unlock my iPhone, because I can arrange my apps and widgets [00:00:30] to frame it perfectly. I can select them all and easily place them along the bottom right above the dock for easy access or even off to the side. We have an awesome new look for app icons when we go into dark mode. Let's turn it on. Isn't that cool? Now, in addition to this new dark look, there are even more new ways to adjust how they look. I can bring up [00:01:00] a new customization sheet and now I can tint them all with color. iOS suggests a tint color that compliments my wallpaper, or I can select any other color I want. Speaker 1: Now they really pop. Another key part of Personalizing iOS is about keeping you in control of your privacy. So this year we're giving you a new way to protect sensitive apps [00:01:30] and the information inside them by letting you lock an app. When you choose to lock an app, if someone else tries to tap it, they will be required to authenticate using face id, touch ID or your passcode and information from inside. The app won't appear in other places across the system, like in search and notifications, so others won't inadvertently see sensitive information. There may also be occasions when you want to hide an app that you don't want others to know is installed in your device. [00:02:00] For example, say you use a professional grade spatial capture app to track your different hairstyles. I mean, that's just good science, right? Well anyway, say you use this app but you don't want anyone else to know. Well, now you can hide it and put it in a new hidden apps folder that's locked. We have big enhancements to the apps we use to stay connected, starting with messages to tell you more, here's Ronak. Speaker 2: In iOS 18, [00:02:30] we're giving you all new ways to express yourself and stay connected. Let's start with tap backs. Tap backs are one of the most popular ways to express yourself in messages and people love them. This is a huge year for tap backs. We've not only redesigned your favorites, we're now giving you limitless ways to express yourself by letting you tap back with any emoji or sticker. Next, we're bringing one of your most requested features to messages. When you [00:03:00] don't want to forget to send that friendly reminder or birthday text in the morning, you can schedule your message to send later. We're also giving you more ways to express your tone with text formatting, bold, italicize, underline, or strike through any text and when formatting is not enough. We're introducing a new way to visually amplify your messages with text effects. Whether you want to emphasize some major news, bring your emoji to life, or you're just blown away by a stunning photo, [00:03:30] you can express yourself in all new ways with text effects. Speaker 2: Some words and phrases automatically surface a suggestion, so you can quickly select one and send it, and you can also add one of the many new effects to any text. There's a new way to stay connected whenever you don't have wifi or cellular service. We're using the same groundbreaking technology that gave us emergency SOS via satellite to bring you messages via satellite. Now, [00:04:00] you can use the satellite capabilities on iPhone 14 and later to connect to satellites hundreds of miles above the earth to text your friends and family when you're off the grid. Once you're connected, you'll be able to use key iMessage features like sending and receiving messages emoji and tap backs because iMessage was built to protect your privacy. iMessages sent over satellite are end-to-end encrypted. And if you need to text people not on iMessage, we're supporting SMS messaging via satellite two. Speaker 1: Continuing [00:04:30] on our journey to replace your physical wallet, we are introducing tap to cash, a quick and private way to exchange Apple cash without sharing phone numbers or email addresses. With tap to cash, you can pay someone back for dinner just by holding your phones Together, we're adding two new ways to pay with Apple Pay online, giving customers around the world the ability to redeem rewards and access installments from their banks and card providers. And event tickets are getting a [00:05:00] beautiful new design and new features, including an all new event guide, combining helpful information about the venue with smart recommendations from your favorite Apple apps. So that's iOS 18, a big release that brings deeper customization to iPhone, new ways to stay connected in messages and mail enhancements to privacy, and the biggest photos redesign ever. Making it even easier to relive those special moments and so much [00:05:30] more, including an option for larger icons on the home screen, RCS messaging, support and reminders. Integration and calendar.
