IOS 11 might bring the drag and drop feature to iPhones too

Previewed this week at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, iOS 11 will support new features for augmented reality apps, a smarter and more language-savvy Siri digital assistant, expanded payment options through Apple Pay, and more.

However, it is worth mentioning that there are tonnes of features tested in beta that don't always make it to the stable version. You'll be able to install it on your iPhone 5s and later, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, the latest iPad (5th generation, 2017), iPad mini 2 and later, and iPod touch 6th generation. 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.

A one-handed keyboard, improved Apple Maps and customisable Control Centre are also included in this huge update. In addition, Siri can now translate phrases for you, from English to Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.




At this point in time, we only have our hands on the first developer beta of iOS 11. "When you are driving, you don't need to be responding to these kind of messages". You can now use Siri to add to your Evernote or pull up a QR code in WeChat, among other things. This feature will work only for iOS devices moreover both iOS devices need to be close to one another and should be unlocked.

As anyone who closely follows Apple can attest, the company tends to harp on user privacy whenever it touts new software features. Even though they're available on the cloud, your messages will still be protected with end-to-end encryption. Not only do Apple executives genuinely care about protecting user data, a privacy-oriented philosophy also helps Apple differentiate itself from rivals like Google. Apple Pay Cash balance can be transferred to a bank account or used as payment in stores and online.
