All the new features you should know about

You're upgrading to iPhone 8 and iPhone X? iOS 11 will let you transfer your settings from the old model easily.

IOS 11 will allow users to customise their control centre, which also comes with a new look. iPhone and iPad owners will be able to remove, add, and arrange widgets in the control centre - which is now accessible by swiping up on the devices. Apple claims that with iOS 11, Siri will be smarter than before.

Apple has dramatically improved the iPad experience with iOS 11 by expanding the size of the Dock to get quick access to more apps. So there might be a possibility that users are just waiting this one out until they get a proper guarantee that everything is in the green.

Do Not Disturb is just one of several new safety features, according to a good review in The Independent.

However the same could not be said for the iPad.

I trust the iOS team to give Files more configurability over time. In the interim, you might consider using the Outlook for iOS app. ActiveSync is now an old protocol that does not support some advanced features such as the ever-popular Focused Inbox.

Brand new Control Center: Control Center has a new design so that it sits on a single screen instead of two or three swiping panels.

The flashlight has the added feature of varying intensity and turning on airplane mode after turning on the Bluetooth does not disconnect it, isn't that just cool! Or you can do it yourself from Control Center.




Files can sort out your, err, files on your iPhone or iPad, within certain apps, on iCloud Drive and even some third-party cloud lockers such as Google Drive. There are a number of small changes that make multi-tasking easier, including the ability to drag and drop text, files and photos between apps. However, in an iPad the whole scenario has been changed. The feature being the coolest so far is only frowned upon for not being the same for the iPhone. Once you're done, iOS 11 also automatically prompts you to save, or delete the file.

It is also important to note that not all Apple devices are compatible with the update.

However, with this new feature, those sending the Snapchat or Video call will not be notified that they are being recorded meaning that people could have your private and most graphic images in their possession without you knowing. Any incoming text alerts would be stopped, making you concentrate on driving. This was a much requested feature for the iPad.

Now, make sure to connect your iOS device to the PC system by using a proper USB data cable. Even something as simple as a ruler app, but built with the ARKit, becomes a fun experience.

Endearing feature for all dem photo lovers out there!

Currently, AirPods users can only change tracks on their iOS devices by starting Siri with a double tap on an AirPod and issuing a voice command.

The Kaleidoscope watch face offers a psychedelic watch face which you can choose from the preset wallpapers or you can add your own custom photo which will get a Kaleidoscope effect. It also has a few new tricks, but the best is instant translations.

Finally, the Control Center is fully customizable on the iPad and iPhone as well. Well nothing is ideal, this version although outstanding, has its certain faults, but overall so the best the Apple has offered!
