Improved App Store
iOS 18 may bring some upgrades to the App Store. This may include a new UI, a more personalized app discovery experience, and increased app security measures.
Healthcare app enhancements
iOS 18 may bring additional features to the Health app. As part of these features, more health metrics may be tracked, such as blood sugar levels and sleep quality. It is also predicted that healthcare apps will be able to provide more personalized health insights.
With iOS 18, Apple is likely to continue investing in augmented reality (AR). The company may offer new ARKit tools for developers, as well as new AR apps and features.
These are just some of the highlights of the upcoming iOS 18 software update. To find out exactly what features will be included in the next operating system, we will have to wait for Apple’s official announcement.
