Apple nixes Facebook and Twitter integration from iOS 11

There have been numerous updates throughout the year, but now it's time for iOS 11 to become available.

A deal bringing Amazon Prime Video to Apple TV, announced on Monday at Apple Inc.'s developer conference after years of talk, shows how competitive tensions among Silicon Valley titans can stand in the way of serving customers.

In September 2017, the final release of the update will be available with new iPhones, the iPhone 7s and/or iPhone 8.

Here is a review on the new iOS 11.

What new features does iOS 11 have? Yes, there's a new Today tab, which is capable of highlighting favorite apps and games.

3D touch will be a new addition, which will allow quick access to more settings and features.

If you've used Apple Pencil before-I've done so only briefly in furtive visits to Apple retail stores-you know that it already works amazingly well on the previous-generation iPad Pros.

Apple is also bringing Apple Pay which will help in paying someone back through its own payment service just like PayPal.

Apple's 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) saw a range of new products unveiled by the Cupertino-based company. Chinese, French, German, Spanish and Italian will be the first languages released with this feature, and Apple plans to add more.

New designs of any kind take getting used to but the changes to the Control Center where you can turn on Airplane mode, adjust the audio and more looks to be a positive step.

For example, if you're looking at a place or topic in Safari, Siri will suggest related words in Mail, Messages and other apps. On the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, image file sizes will be reduced through High Efficiency File Format processing.

The memory movies in Photos are optimised to play portrait and landscape orientation.

Maps of airports and shopping arcades will also be coming, for those who use the Maps app.

Drivers will still be able to use Apple CarPlay, of course, in cars that are equipped with it. Apple CarPlay is a vehicle interface specifically created to allow drivers to hear and respond to text messages using voice commands and to safely use other iPhone features while's available from a number of automobile manufacturers, including General Motors, Fiat Chrysler, BMW and Honda, and works through a computer screen in the auto.

Apple announced that Siri will now use deep learning to understand the user's tone as well so that it can identify the nature of the request.
