What the Tech? New iOS 11 features

The company now wants developers to use AR Kit and develop cool games and apps for iOS devices.

Apple Pencil is the thing that helps iPad Pro provide a more PC like experience, and it has been integrated even more tightly with iOS 11.

One way of getting an early version of Files is by installing the iOS 11 public beta once it becomes available, but it might be another couple of months or so until that is released. Besides, there is always the option to select particular apps and offload them from the phone. "We should not lose sight of the fact that drivers using the iPhone are involved in thousands of crashes", Feldman told the Huffington Post. Other handy features include an automatic login to new devices simply by bringing it close to a Mac or other iOS 11 devices. Fans will face the choice of abandoning those games or apps which do not update or risking their phone's security by refusing to update to the iOS 11.

But particularly as the market shifted more toward productivity, the device has needed to overcome its reputation for not being suited for "real work".

You can also go down the list of apps one-by-one and disable them on case-by-case basis.

Do you own an iPhone 5 or 5c? For instance, you might be reading a News article about a Chinese restaurant and Siri might show a pop-up notification suggesting nearby spots on Maps for you to try dishes or order delivery.

According to CNN, Apple announced at their 2017 Worldwide Developers Conference that the new iOS 11 will introduce "Do Not Disturb While Driving." iPhones connected to a auto via Bluetooth or cable will silence notifications from iMessage and certain news apps, for instance, during drives.

Lastly, it appears AirPods users will be seeing improved functionality due to iOS 11.

While there will be some casualties from Apple's decision, the vast majority of apps which still only use a 32-bit processor will not be missed. The only requirement is that the iOS devices involved in Wi-Fi password sharing run iOS 11. The users will now notice that there is a new Screen Recording icon in the overlay.

I'm in no doubt we'll find a range of additional improvements before iOS 11 ships, including a description of how the "Click to join meeting" feature works. Plus, the app can now create new memories itself based on the information present in images (i.e. people present in photos, event details, location data etc.).
