The newest beta release for iOS 11 launched on June 21, giving developers access to an upcoming feature for the operating system: a ‘Do Not Disturb While Driving’ mode that was announced in June at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference.

The feature detects when the user is in a vehicle based on the speed on the speed of travel from their GPS, or when the phone gets connected to a car’s USB port or Bluetooth signal. Anyone who texts someone in this mode receives an automated message informing them that the person they contacted is driving and can’t respond. ‘Do Not Disturb While Driving’ mode will not entirely prevent drivers from using their phones: they can still access music and receive navigation assistance.

When the iOS 11 launches in September, all users of the new operating system will have access to the feature.
