iOS 11

Apple’s iOS is getting a huge makeover and it is coming out this fall. Here we have a roundup of everything you should know about the new iOS.

New App Store: Optimized for discovery with a card-based design and tabs like “Today” and “Games.”


iPad-only features: The introduction of a Files app, a huge change; drag and drop support inside and between apps; new wide dock; new app switcher; improved keyboard; more. 

AR Kit: “AR like you’ve never seen it before.” Apple says the kit will help developers like Pokémon Go creator Niantic make augmented reality apps.

Messages updates: The Messages app is getting iCloud-synced messages between devices and a redesigned app drawer.

Apple Pay, P2P: Person-to-person payments are now part of Apple’s Messages app.

Siri refresh: A slightly updated design and a more natural voice for Siri (female and male)

Camera: Updated video and image compression, improved Portrait Mode with support for low light, plus a new Depth API for developers.

Control Center: A “major” redesign for Apple’s Control Center that squishes the buttons onto one page again.

Lock Screen: Now merged with the notifications center into one screen.

Live Photos: They now loop, like a GIF, or Instagram’s Boomerang.

Maps: Navigation, airports, and lane guidance updates.

Do not disturb while driving: Detects when you’re driving and blocks notifications. Also features auto-responses. “We think this is a real important step in safety for the car,” said Apple.

Airplay 2: Adds multi-room audio support to iOS, with Apple Music and Apple TV integration. A big attack on Sonos.

Apple Music: New social features (share what you’re listening to with friends, a la Spotify), and support for controlling multi-room speakers.
