Do not disturb while driving feature for iPhone welcomed by Brake

For instance, the phone will be able to detect if you are driving and silence the notification and darken the screen.Maps of airports and shopping arcades will also be coming, for those who use the Maps app. Users also have the option of sending an auto reply to contacts listed in Favorites to let them know they are driving and cannot respond until they arrive at their destination. However, it is worth pointing out that iOS 9 had a similar feature back in 2015 - although that was only for temporarily deleting apps while upgrading to a new operating system.

All your incoming text messages will get synchronized across all devices you own through its iCloud service.

It roughly equates to a 40 per cent reduction in border size, says Alphr, although Apple has managed to maintain the old iPad Pro's 1lb (454g) weight.

The iPad 4 and hundreds of apps will also be made obsolete under the new software as it will remove support for 32-bit apps.

Apple's decision to ditch support for the iPhone 5 is unsurprising, as it tends not to offer the latest edition of iOS on older handsets. Such handy and fast way to unlock a bike is expected to help increase user base and engagement and speed up the bike rental firm's growth.

As well as acting a virtual home button, previous reports have suggested this non physical control will also hide a new Touch ID sensor, buried within the screen itself.

iPhones will be able to detect when you're driving and switch on Do Not Disturb mode to avoid distractions.

Popular apps will be downloaded more; however, newer ones will be hard to find after this.

In addition, the introduction of QR code support by Apple enables Mobike users to scan and unlock a bike without even opening their Mobike app. The document, which was originally spotted by Engadget, mentions a "Core NFC" framework that allows for access to certain high-level aspects of NFC hardware where developers will be able to build apps that can take advantage of it.

If you're not sold on the idea of Apple's AR, just head to Twitter to check out the videos being posted left and right by developers toying around with the closed beta. More interestingly, Siri now has the ability to automatically translate to French, Chinese, Spanish and German. So, if you delete a conversation bubble on an iPad, it will also disappear on your other devices, and free up iMessage storage space.

Despite having been formally unveiled, iOS 11 will not be released to consumers until this autumn.
