Apple iOS 11 takes a stand on driving safety with CarPlay updates

The announcement of a peer-to-peer payments option via the iMessage app is "a big deal, as it may signal a larger move toward debit card like payments that could open up new pools of payments profit for Apple". Any that are not updated by the time iOS 11 is released will stop working.

The new iOS 11 will be available as a free update for supported iPhones and iPads in about September.

The trend-setting company also is putting new twists on existing products as it delves deeper into virtual reality and a form of artificial intelligence called machine learning.

If you're a serious Apple user, you'll understand that a Macbook, while pretty, isn't the most productive device on offer.

Today (June 5) at its annual developer conference in San Jose, California, Apple unveiled a slimmed-down, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, but it also introduced a new version of its mobile operating system, iOS 11, that finally filled in a few of the gaps that had been preventing the iPad from replacing the laptop for most people.

Apple has introduced a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" in CarPlay.

One significant addition to the Apple family is the new iMac Pro, an all-in-one behemoth set to start shipping in December that the company is aiming specifically at enterprise users running enormous workloads. Live photos get continuous video loops and bounce effect.




The special keyboard is similar to other one-handed typing features - when enabled, it compresses the keyboard to one side of your screen so that you can better type while you are pre-occupied. And a new format called High Efficiency Image File Format can reduce the file size of the pics you take on an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus. This means you can easily access your files at any time, whatever else you're doing, as well as any other apps you use frequently. Lane guidance and speed limits should help the users to navigate the unknown road.

Control Center: Control Center gets an overhaul with iOS 11. The lock screen too has been modified, and it now delivers a better and simpler way to see Notifications in one place. You will now be able to see what your friends are listening to so you can find new songs on the service. The new Files app will give users a simple view of files on their device.

iOS 11 will bring some new features to the iPad Pro. Expect it to shrink to a lower corner, much like the UI.

Mac High Sierra is now available to Developers and will be available to the public later this year. And during the keynote, Apple made it clear that that's what they're more concerned with as well.

iOS 11 includes a dock, just like on MacOS, that is always there (unless you swipe to hide it) as you multitasking between apps.

On the design front, the App Store is also getting a makeover.
