Top 10 Features You Need to Know About Apple's New iOS 11

Like a new file system and a multitasking feature where windows can float above other apps.

Both Gruber and Troughton-Smith speculate Apple is unsure if the feature will be of use to iPhone users, thus it's hidden status.

Coming to the Apple's app store. You can place icons for all your frequently used controls and use the full screen for icon placement.

Apple is also getting more serious about the low end of the tablet market.

The changes to the screen could mean even better battery performance than you expect with an iPad although it is still rated as being able to deliver 10 hours of battery.

Apple has finally added support for optical image stabilisation along with HDR for portrait mode (on compatible devices only). Videos will now being HEVC format instead of H.264, while photos will be HEIF instead of JPEGs. These new formats can shrink photo and videos sizes up to 50 percent.

It will debut with iOS 11 in fall 2017. All notifications are automatically silenced and even the screen does not come on to show incoming notifications.

Apple's mobile payment system, Apple Pay, will also get a boost with the new update. There's also a new MusicKit API, meaning other apps can integrate the app, for cross-functionality. For people who have smaller iOS devices, this automatic app deletion feature will come in very handy. Users with devices running iOS 11 can just tap once on the AirPods to skip the music track that's now being played. The app is essentially Finder for the iPad but features several improvements that not even the Mac now has. Before iOS 11 you needed a third-party QR app to scan and read QR codes, but now you can simply use iOS 11's Camera app to do it. There is also "auto delete old conversations" for cleaning messages app and OS also shows suggestions to move data to iCloud.

As a member of the Apple Beta Software Program, you'll then be able to download the latest public beta, as well as subsequent updates, straight from the iOS Software Update. Dragging and dropping files and media content between Apple apps is also supported. Users could allow applications to use the location all the time, only while using the app, or restrict the app from using their location altogether. Moreover, the dock can now be accessed anywhere (even within apps) by swiping upward to make it easy to launch/switch between apps. With the update, Apple has added the ability for users to see what your friends are listening to, so that you can find new music. Your device will turn off and on again at one point and you will need to unlock your device with your passcode if you have one turned on. The company has updated its App Store to help users discover app and games more easily. You can sum up the changes as better split screen features and a better dock and control panel and easier access to the cloud, but that doesn't really explain just how much more useful the iPad Pro becomes with these changes.
