Apple introduces Wi-Fi sharing in iOS 11

Apple introduces Wi-Fi sharing in iOS 11

Until now, third parties have not been able to use the tech on the iPhone.

Password autofill for apps was one of the features mentioned during the iOS 11 announcement, but that wouldn't either suffice for the first-time login. But the one feature perhaps most likely to elicit a "finally!" has largely gone unnoticed: the volume slider no longer intrusively blankets the entire screen.

The volume indicator no longer obstructs the center of the screen obnoxiously. You can hit "Download profile" and install the new iOS 11 Beta. "This will make them more comfortable using your app because they will have better control over their data", Kontaxis explained.

More advanced augmented reality capabilities will be made possible through ARKit, Apple's new framework for developers who want to build AR apps for iPad and iPhone users. This, however, has not stopped iPhone users in attempting to install the developers beta version of iOS 11 on their devices. Apple Pay's peer-to-peer transactions will be available in iOS 11 and watchOS 4. However, for iOS 11 users, the Wi-Fi sharing functionality removes this step from the process, letting you wirelessly send the password to their iPhones and iPads.

Some users could get concerned over this feature because if some of the important apps that they seldom use is removed from the device, they could be stuck in a situation when they most need it. The Dock also "intelligently" suggests apps and it displays the last apps you opened on your iPhone or Mac.

A new feature which stops a driver receiving notifications on an iPhone when it detects the device is in a vehicle is being introduced to the next version of the phone's operating system. You can easily restore the unused apps by clicking on the greyed out icon, should you wish. What's really cool about the new feature is that after the users stop recording, they can make edits and annotations to their recording.

The connectivity continues in Apple Music, which will let you see what your friends are listening to and could, say, allow Shazam to add music to your library automatically.
