The Best Hidden Features of iOS 11

Apple iPhone 8 running iOS 11 renders leaked online

Apple iPhone 8 running iOS 11 renders leaked online

You'll be able to download iOS 11 later this year. Thus, the new iOS is now in its initial beta testing phase, although only for developers.

Assuming you've prepared for the iOS 11 beta and are now on a fast connection, installing the iOS 11 beta could take you less than 15 minutes to complete. If you never care to manage files, you'll never need to - but the iPad will soon be vastly more functional for the people who do need that functionality. With the introduction of upgraded iPad Pro models and the unveiling of iPad productivity features in iOS 11, Apple appears to be going all-in on the iPad as its vision of the productivity machine of the future.

FIRST off, let me share with you a post from James Deakin where he shared an infographic in relation to the Anti-Distracted Driving Act. If you recently backed up your device and/or checked in with your IT department, you could be on your way in a matter of minutes. If you're on a slower Wi-Fi network, the download could take upwards of 15 minutes.

This test software gives the USA technology giant an insight into how their new software is performing before it's released to the masses. You can ever switch on the lamp and see shadows cast from the other virtual objects. That's extremely fast for a beta and an update this size. Note that your device could restart itself several times.

Other features that will no doubt show up in the enterprise include NFC support, password autofill for apps, "tap to join meetings" (I haven't seen what this will look like yet, but I'll take it), and DeviceCheck, a type of device fingerprinting implemented in the typical Apple way.

You'll also want to check on your important files and use your core applications and services to make sure they're working properly. You just have to jailbreak the handset and install these unofficial iOS apps. More if this is your first time installing pre-release software.

In September this year, Apple will roll out iOS 11 - a new version of the operating system which powers iPads and iPhones. If you've experienced frustrating iOS problems, you might want to give the iOS 11 beta a shot.

Here's what we learned when we tried out an early version of iOS 11.

If Apple's gonna have an onscreen homebutton on the iPhone 8, it would make a lot of sense to spring-load it for drag & drop.

If you're sick and exhausted of running into problems with iOS updates, do something about it. Download the iOS 11 beta and hunt for bugs.
