It will also show the number of times that they've unlocked their Android phone throughout the day. You'll just have to try and see if you can get lucky.

The original iPhone SE was released in 2016, with Apple the following year opting against their typical yearly handset upgrade. The new features will be baked right into iOS 12, which is the likely name of the operating system update Apple will announce on Monday. According to a recent Bloomberg report, the new "Digital Health" features will appear in iOS 12 settings.

There's a good chance we'll see more of a cross-over between iOS and Mac apps this time around, too.

New iPads or MacBook Air? However hardware announcements are expected to be held for Apple's major product event it holds each year usually in September. The new tablet could also get Face ID facial recognition technology, which debuted on the iPhone X in 2017.

Apple is set to announce a string of new product software updates at its annual developers conference with the company tipped to reveal an unprecedented new service created to improve our relationship with its beloved products.
