For those with the newest iPad Pro models, the second-generation Apple Pencil can now be detected while hovering up to 12mm above the display. This allows users to preview their drawing before they make it. With Scribble, text fields automatically expand when the pencil reaches the screen. 

Suppose you're looking for the Apple Pencil with USB-C that launched in 2023. In that case, Amazon has a smaller $10 discount on that model, which is available for $69.99, down from $79.00.

On Monday, February 12, 2024, at 7:51 am PST, Apple introduced a new feature that lets residents of participating U.S. states add their driver's license or ID to the Wallet on the iPhone and Apple Watch. This provides a convenient, contactless way to display proof of identity or age. Unfortunately, states have been slow to adopt the feature since it was first announced in September 2021. IDs in the Wallet are only available in some states. 

Apple's recent iOS 17.3 software update includes an important new feature that all iPhone users should know about Stolen Device Protection. Last year, the Wall Street Journal reported about thieves spying on an iPhone user's passcode before stealing the device, often in public places like bars. With knowledge of the passcode, the thief can change the victim's Apple ID password, turn off the Find My , and erase the device. Stolen Device Protection addresses this issue by preventing anyone from erasing the device without the owner's Apple ID and password, even if they know the passcode. 

In October 2022, Apple updated its Store Review Guidelines to clarify that sales of “boosted” posts in social media apps must use the Store's in- purchase system. As a result of that clarification, Meta announced that it will soon charge advertisers a 30% fee when they purchase boosted posts through the Facebook and Instagram apps. This change is expected to take effect soon and will impact many social media advertisers. 

Although iOS 18 is still months away from being unveiled, rumors and expectations exist for the software. Apple is expected to introduce new features and improvements, such as a revamped notification system, a new for the home screen, and enhanced Siri capabilities. However, as with all rumors, it's essential to take them with a grain of salt and wait for the official announcement.
