New iPhone Update Will BLOCK Texts While You’re Driving

If you’re a text-while-driving kind of a person, well - that’s very bad.

In good news, you’re not going to be able to do it for very much longer.

Yep, the new apple update is sophisticated enough to disable your texts while you’re at the wheel.

The feature will be called Do Not Disturb While Driving and will be part of Apple's iOS 11 update.

But don’t get too excited, it’s not THAT good.

As in, the disability of texts will only kick in once your phone is connected to your car via Bluetooth or a cable.

Any kind of notification to your phone, including texts, news, and any social media notifications, but only if the feature is turned on.

If someone does text you while you’re driving and you have the feature on, you can also set up an automatic message that will reply to tell them that you're driving and can't respond.

But don’t worry, for those who text and drive without cables or bluetooth - there are PLENTY of cops on the road to monitor THAT.
