Apple's iOS 11 Hopes To Reinvent the iPad

Apple's iOS 11 Hopes To Reinvent the iPad

Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, first announced the new feature at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, USA Today reported. However, there's a new iOS 11 trick in town that should help you deal with all the annoying iPhone or iPad questions that your mom and dad might text you when you least expect it.

With the new update, GIFs can now be directly viewed in Photos, and the graphics even have a dedicated album called "Animated". But it appears things are finally about to change.

That kind of reality is years away, but if Apple wants to jump into VR one day, it is implementing a pretty good strategy so far: monopolize the AR content industry through ARKit, and slowly-but-surely figure out what it will need to burst onto the VR scene most effectively. Other devices that will get the update include- iPhones ( iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE and iPhone 5s); tablets (iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Air 2, iPad, iPad mini 4, iPad mini 3 and iPad mini 2); and iPod Touch. Will you be upgrading to the latest iPhone 8? Apple's speaker will be launching in the U.S., U.K., and Australia in December, with additional markets to come next year. The system will used motion tracking, scale estimation, and ambient lighting to create a much more realistic look and feel, which will supposedly create a big step up from Apple's current system. A notification pops up when the app recognizes that there's a QR code in front of the device, and the user just has to tap on that notification to scan the code.

On both device types, the new Control Center is now customizable: You can add and remove shortcuts through an interface in Settings.




Among the most highly anticipated changes teased in iOS 11 is the introduction of a fully revamped Control Centre on the iPhone.

The feature works as seamlessly as connecting a pair of AirPods to a device.

Developers who have gotten their hands on the iOS 11 beta, however, have shared some evidence that there's still hope for smartphone productivity enthusiasts: multiple screencap videos posted to Twitter show off the new functionality working on the iPhone, too.

It also has the option of sending an automatic voice or text reply to contacts listed in Favorites to let them know you're driving and can't respond until you reach your destination, so your mother-in-law can't accuse you of avoiding her. Apple's navigation app is also getting an upgrade and will now be able to display floorplan-level maps within malls and airports for detailed navigation assistance.
