How to make sure your apps will still work with iOS 11

One of the more interesting features is built-in screen recording, but while I attempted to record my video with it, it crashed, so I was forced to use my normal app for screen mirroring.

The OS update also gives users the option to manually decide which apps to offload.

On iPad, the new Control Center is laid out differently for no good reason.

The update will also include a "driving mode" which will mute notifications and can even send an automatic response to messages, informing the recipient that the iPhone owner is driving. Also available is lane guidance to ensure that you don't miss any turns.

When a user attempts to connect to an unknown Wi-Fi network, he or she is instructed to hold the iPhone or iPad next to another iOS device or Mac that is connected to the network.

If it feels like Apple's two new iPad Pros don't bring enough hardware upgrades and design revisions to the table, it's paramount to remember how iOS 11 takes a "monumental leap" for the productivity of these large-screened mobile devices before predicting their doom. But it also displays your three most-recently-accessed apps in a new area on the right.

Messages: The messaging app of Apple has now been provided a new app drawer to easily pull stickers and apps. Because it's a sea of mostly icons sans text, however, you really have to know your way around this thing to use it effectively. Instead of viewing and using the device for watching movies or passively checking email, Apple wants users to treat it as a computer. On Reddit, one user said you have to switch to the male Siri voice and back to let the new Siri download.

This is some serious stuff for developers.

Your beta testing could prevent a major problem or a minor bug from appearing in the final iOS 11 release for your device. Apple has built augmented reality support into iOS 11, and developers will be able to utilize it for their apps by using ARKit SDK that Apple has prepared.

The function reportedly works simply: if a device running iOS 11 tries to join your Wi-Fi network, your nearby iOS devices will get a pop-up asking if you'd like to share your password. That is, sometime between September to December. However, some functionality may be limited on older devices.
