New Apple Operating System Will Block Phones from Receiving Texts While Driving
We all do it, but we never want to face the shame of admitting it. In 2015 alone, 3,477 lives were claimed by distracted driving. The new Apple iOS update will change this dangerous activity for the better. If you own an iPhone, check this out.
The new iOS 11 operating system, which will be available this fall, will include a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" feature. Once the feature is turned on, your phone will mute all notifications and your screen will remain black so no more game or Facebook notifications for example. I personally have turned off all of my push notifications. 46 states, including Kentucky, have banned texting while driving. 14 have banned the use of hand-held phones while driving.
