Apple’s iOS 17.2 update has now arrived for recent iPhones. The update features Apple’s new Journal app, which includes prompts from data on your phone, as well as a new option to record spatial videos.

Apple has been dropping hints about the new journal app since the summer of 2023. It’s designed to encourage users to write about day to day events and accompany key moments with photos from your iPhone.

Meanwhile, there are also key additions to the camera, bringing Spatial Video to the new iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, as well as improved telephoto camera focus. In addition, the new Action Button also gains some new abilities, including the ability to access the Translate tool. This will enable easier conversations across languages or help users to quickly translate a page.

Updates have also come to Apple’s Messages app. There’s a new catch-up arrow that’ll take you down to the first unread message within a thread and Contact Key Verification so you know who you’re chatting with.

A Dubai-based company has completed the initial trials for the UAE’s first driverless trucks. The groundbreaking achievement by Evocargo, partnering with Dubai South, took place at Dubai South Logistics District, and marked a significant step towards incorporating autonomous technologies into the region’s wider logistics infrastructure.

Announced on Wednesday, July 17th, the trials featured the Evocargo N1 unmanned electric truck navigating a predetermined route within a controlled setting. The test involved interactions with common road obstacles such as cars, trucks, and pedestrians, aiming to evaluate the vehicle’s hardware and software reliability, accident prevention systems, and overall readiness for public road use.

Officials were keen to highlight that this accomplishment aligns with the UAE’s ambitious strategy to position itself as a global leader in innovation and technology adoption. The country aims to have 25% of all transportation in Dubai autonomous by 2030, underscoring its commitment to revolutionizing the logistics sector using advanced technologies.

Mohsen Ahmad, CEO of the Logistics District at Dubai South, emphasized the importance of the collaboration with Evocargo in enhancing the region’s logistics capabilities. He noted that autonomous vehicles are set to increase efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and establish a sustainable logistics infrastructure that will benefit both Dubai and the wider UAE.
