IOS 11 brings NFC smarts to more apps

Apple already controls your life, now HomePod wants your home

Apple already controls your life, now HomePod wants your home

Apple SVP of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, announced the features of Apple's latest iOS 11 at the WWDC 2017 event.

iOS 11 is the upgraded version of iOS 10 and will be available for download this fall.

Speculation was rampant about the introduction of a new drag and drop file management feature right before the conference after a developer running an iOS 10 beta spotted the new category.

The Storage & iCloud has been replaced with iPhone Storage in iOS 11.

Meanwhile, the iOS 11 update will improve digital assistant Siri's voice and language capabilities with the help of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

After being relatively ignored for the last couple years, Apple has finally shown the iPad some love in iOS 11. We have it now installed on our iPhone 7 Plus, running the iOS 11 developer preview.

To use iOS 11's new Wi-Fi sharing feature, just pull up the Wi-Fi login screen on the "foreign" device for which you'll be granting access and put it near a "native" device already on the network.

Apple's official iOS beta management instructions are available at this link.

Files is about as exciting of an a file manager can be. The 3-D touch system enhances your experience so to get in-depth control access. Important system and application data is still off limits, and that's surely for the better. It even uses directions to walk you where you want to go.

Live PhotosAs much as we love Live Photos, one of our biggest pet peeves is that sometimes the best part of the photo is caught just before or after it snapped.

iOS 11 is out for developers now, with a final release expected in September. We think this is going to be a real important step in safety in the auto'.

What's so cool about Files?

Contacts can receive an automatic reply saying that you are driving and will get back to them once you arrive. It lets you browse the files on your iPad. New tags can be created, while existing ones can be renamed or deleted.

"The new app ARKit will use 'fast, stable motion tracking", and also as scale estimation and medium lighting estimation for a lot of captivating version of expanded reality. Therefore, we weren't able to test them.

Without the feature in place, the users will have to go for the longer route that involves logging through mobile web. What many may not know is that on iOS 11 you will be able to Type to Siri if it doesn't catch your command properly.
