There's no Office free ride on Apple's new 10.5-in. iPad Pro

According to Business Insider, the new feature in iOS 11 works seamlessly and is simple to use.

Dubbed "Do Not Disturb while Driving", Apple's new operating mode for the iPhone functions a lot like its existing "Do Not Disturb" mode, which silences all notifications for phone calls, texts, and other alerts while active.

DNDWD, which will be available in fall 2017 with the release of Apple's mobile operating system iOS 11, will allow users to send autotomatic replies to contacts attempting to reach them while they are behind the wheel. This year, the company is up to iOS 11 and explained numerous new features during its developers keynote presentation Monday.

Let's hope Apple keeps all of these features in play within the final version of iOS 11, which arrives this autumn.

The iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 7, and 7 Plus.

The first iPhone 5 went on sale almost five years ago and was the last Apple smartphone to be overseen by Steve Jobs.

The company's smart-speaker, the HomePod, is going after the growing online home assistant buyers with the Siri-assisted device.

App developers wouldn't release a new version very often anyway as App Store approval would usually take a week. Users can choose to activate the feature by heading to Settings General iPhone Storage.

But, hold your horses as iOS 11 is still in its beta stage.

The latest software will be made available in six months.

As you may well remember, last year's iOS 10 brought new Lock Screen features, as well as the integration of third party apps in iMessage and Apple Maps.

While the phone will still work (and it's a little bit incredible that it still does), users won't be able to download the latest apps or security upgrades to protect against hackers and vulnerabilities.

It also means that 32-bit apps won't work with iOS devices running iOS 11, hence the importance of the beta period for developers.

A feature within this Do Not Disturb mode will allow those who text the driver to receive an automated reply that states they're driving and can not respond right now.
