Apple's iOS 11 Won't Support These iPhones

Microsoft has always been quite fast at adding support for new features on iOS and even Android lately as the software maker continues to push its cross-platform mobile efforts, so all of this isn't anything surprising to see.

Apps that only run in 32-bit will not show up in search results in the new version of the App Store, or be available from the Purchased tab if they have been downloaded previously.

To no one's surprise, iOS 11 was a key focus of the opening conference.

The HomePod is priced at $349 and will be available in US, UK and Australia in December. Apple will prompt you to use the feature after you take your first drive with an iOS 11-powered iPhone. The move positions Apple to compete with popular payments apps such as Square Cash and Venmo.

Apple has overhauled its Control Centre on iPhone, making it look more simplistic and compact, fitting it onto a single page.

"Apple has the ability to outfit its iPhones with a lock-out device that would disable the smartphone while being used by motorists", documents filed in the California Superior Court say.

The screen will remain dark with muted notifications. There had been rumors abound over what would be included in iOS 11 and, for the most part, several proved to be correct. Like every year, this is the stage where Apple unveils updates and newest versions of its various devices and services, and to no surprise, there were plenty of announcements here as well. It mimics the features of both systems, touting a Sonos-like spacial awareness system to better deliver music around the home, but also voice-controlled features, such as Smart Home.

The lack of a dedicated file explorer has always been one of the biggest limitations of iOS, which pretty much forces iPhone and iPad owners to use cloud storage services including Microsoft's excellent OneDrive app.

Apps also get their own tab, while the search tool will also include content from Today as well as a list of apps and games related to your original terms.
