IPhone 7 and 7 Plus will support NFC tags with iOS 11

IPhone 7 and 7 Plus will support NFC tags with iOS 11

Apple has been labelling the iPad as a laptop alternative for some time, but it's only with the release of iOS 11 that users will have access to features that allow for efficient multitasking, as well a hub for all of the tablet's files.

Enterprise chiefs must now take steps to ensure their existing iOS apps are 64-bit, as Apple will terminate support for 32-bit apps in iOS 11.

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

As it is switching to 64-bit mode, all the older Apple apps running in 32-bit mode will stop working. Reading a wider number of tags will open the platform up to supporting additional NFC-based services, such as NFC-based security systems, public transit systems, and (presumably) payment cards.




When Apple debuted its iPad Pro, one of the major criticisms of the device was that there was nowhere to store the accompanying Pencil stylus.

The new model features a display that's 20 percent larger than the 9.7-inch version, though it isn't much larger than its predecessor thanks to the device's smaller bezels.

Many current iPhone and iPad owners will not be able to use the next version of Apple's mobile operating system. These include Dropbox and Box, but also include Microsoft's OneDrive. But there are plenty of exciting tricks under the hood of iOS 11, including a simpler way to join Wi-Fi networks. However, as a post on The Verge explains, FLAC files don't work in Apple Music app.

The message asks the user whether they would like to share the password. One big improvement, Safari will have a new tool for blocking third-party ads trackers. I'd like it if you chose to follow me on Twitter so I can let you know when fresh items are published here first on Computerworld.
