Safe-driv­ing en­force­ment

Popular Science - - BEST OF WHAT’S NEW 2017 -

Dis­tracted driv­ing killed 3,477 peo­ple in 2015; Ap­ple’s new mo­bile OS will try to keep road war­riors fo­cused. If you turn it on, Do Not Dis­turb While Driv­ing will de­tect that your phone is in a mov­ing car— ei­ther be­cause it’s con­nected to the ve­hi­cle, or by track­ing nearby Wi-Fi waves as you cruise. The screen stays black, no­ti­fi­ca­tions go quiet, and any­one hit­ting you up gets an auto re­sponse. (Get it?)
