In June Apple made an announcement according to TechCrunch about an iPhone update that could reduce the number of distracted driving accidents on roads across the country. The latest software version in testing, iOS11, will have a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" feature- a customizable phone setting that motorists can turn on to disable ALL notifications. If you're navigationally challenged like me, don't worry, even with this feature on you will still be able to play music and use navigation. Parents can even enable this new Do Not Disturb While Driving feature through Apple's parental controls system. An update of this sort has been long overdue because as we know, many drivers are unable to resist the immediate temptation to check their phone when that notification pops up. Android already offers a distracted driving prevention feature. Apple's update is set to release to the public in September of this year.
