92% of drivers use their phone behind the wheel according to a recent study. 88 seconds of an average 21 minute journey is spent on a cell phone. In 2017 Apple introduced this new feature as part of IOS 11 which allowed your phone to be in Do Not Disturb mode while you are driving. When your phone is connected to your cars entertainment system via bluetooth or usb then the phone can detect when you are in the car and enable this mode. This is obviously a large step in the right direction and could drastically change the amount of injuries and deaths in car accidents every year in a good way. Apple did a great job implementing this into their new update and hopefully more features like this can be added later on in the year.
