The recent WWDC event exhibited the latest iOS 11 operating system for your Apple device(s). Its OS is comprised of numerous additional features and controls we use every day, but most of us are frequently looking past them and not realizing the extent to which we get benefitted.
Continue reading to find out 8 latest features iOS 11 has to offer:
Apple’s High-Efficiency Image Format allows capturing better images while consuming only half the space as the images captured from an Android. Moreover, the device’s HEVC encoding allows users to save 4K videos by consuming less memory space.
Images captured from an iPhone can be looped impeccably due to its computer vision integrated with its camera; hence, making Boomerang animation more sensible.
There are additional logos on the Control Panel of your Apple device, including newer features for an improved user experience. Most importantly you can view all notifications listed in the same window.
Synchronized text messages:
All your incoming text messages will get synchronized across all devices you own through its iCloud service. Thus, the feature saves you from receiving multiple yet same notifications that I find irritating at times.
What’s new on the iPad?
Drag-and-drop is the new feature offered by iOS 11 for your iPad. Users can drag and drop any file format. Its native app called Files allows users to browse all saved files not only on iPad but also other Apple devices.
The enormous dock provided by iOS 11 can be filled with numerous apps and can be swiped bottom-up if you have to switch apps. The user experience will be quite similar to a Mac.
Siri the virtual assistant:
The virtual assistant Siri will sound more humanlike in iOS 11, and users can switch to a male voice if they prefer. More interestingly, Siri now has the ability to automatically translate to French, Chinese, Spanish and German.
Siri possesses the ability to keep track of your browsing history while presenting you stuffs you might prefer to take a look at. Apple plans to transform Siri into a more proactive and reliable voice assistant.
Finding routes on Map:
It could be terribly annoying sometimes when a phone call causes the Map on iPhone to get minimized. As a result, the latest “Do not disturb” option can block any incoming notification from hampering your driving.
Furthermore, new places, speed limits, and lanes have been added on its Map, similar to that of Google Maps.
The mobile payment service is becoming increasingly popular globally; hence, the latest Apple Pay will be available across 50% of the retailers this year. In addition to it, users will be able to make payments directly to their friends through Apple Pay; hence, making it more popular among users.
App Store with a new look:
The interface looks astonishingly similar to that of Apple News. The “Today” tab lists down all the latest news along with a “Games” tab listing many other different kinds of stuff. Getting featured by Apple will add more value now after its new outlook.
Popular apps will be downloaded more; however, newer ones will be difficult to find after this.
