For example, if you're going to a movie, Siri can suggest that you put your phone on "Do Not Disturb" mode. It will be possible to group notifications from same app into one notification and customise notifications from the lock screen. For example, if you're using Tile to keep track of your keys, you can set Siri to launch the Tile app with a phrase like "I lost my keys". Users can also set time limits for apps and when time is up, they are notified. Both companies' efforts come as experts worry that all the flashy colors and beeps give users short-term, feel-good rewards while increasing stress in the long run. At present, apps such as MeasureKit do the same tasks, but Apple's preloaded app in iOS 12 could perhaps become the default for most users.

Parents will also be happy to know they can apply similar allowances to their kids' devices.

Some reports are also speculating that Apple will finally reveal a launch date for its AirPower charger which can refill numerous devices at the same time using wireless technology.

Apple is also planning an update to ARKit, its platform for developers to build augmented-reality experiences on iPhones and iPads, which it announced past year. It also adds the functionality of several iOS apps, including Home, Stocks, News, and Voice Memos, to the Mac.

Apple also unveiled an app called "Measure" that measures boxes and other objects in the real world by pointing the camera at them.

Even better, notifications can now be grouped together so that you can multiple notification settings at the same time.

The biggest Mac news at the keynote was that macOS Mojave would bring with it a completely redesigned App Store, which looks a lot like the one seen on iPhones.

And that translates into hot new features for 2018 iPhone users, with a raft of new functions landing across the range.

Apple will livestream the event on its website.
