IOS 11 means you never have to remember app passwords again

Coming out this autumn as a free software update in the Mac App Store, macOS High Sierra offers an all-new file system, support for high-efficiency video coding (HEVC) and an update to Metal, Apple's advanced graphics technology.

Key new features include the Apple File System (APFS), which promises enhanced performance, data security and reliability.

Apple has now officially unveiled the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro to the world. It boasts a 5K display, a Xeon CPU with up to 18 cores, a 4TB SSD and up to 128GB of RAM. The MacBook now features up to 50 per cent faster solid-state drives and supports up to twice the memory. It uses spatial awareness to adjust audio depending on where the speaker is in a room, and Apple smart assistant Siri acts as a "musicologist" in the device.

Apple highlighted a lot of the new features that iOS users will be getting when the new iOS 11 arrives but there were also some that they choose not to mention. It will arrive in the United States and United Kingdom in December priced at $349. The new 10.5-inch model reduces the borders by almost 40 per cent to fit into a compact package that still weighs less than half a kilogram. For example, think about all the gradations of touch interactions users now have to keep in mind to use iOS 11 to its full potential.

One of the most useful new features it comes with is the ability to wirelessly share the credentials of a WiFi network from one iOS device to another iOS device.

At the moment Apple does not allow developers to have access to NFC on the iPhone, it is now restricted to Apple Pay and Apple's Passbook, this will change with the release of iOS 11. From Apple's point of view, simpler might be better.

The feature works as seamlessly as connecting a pair of AirPods to a device.
