Here Are Some Of The New Features In iOS 11

This suggests that it could be meant more for users with speech impairments and allow them to interact with Siri in text form, but either way it's still a pretty cool feature that you could check out in the future with iOS 11's release.

Apple has revealed that its latest mobile operating system will include a "do not disturb" feature to stop phone use at the wheel.

Apple executive Craig Federighi made the announcement Monday at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California.

Apple Pay itself was a game-changer for Apple, and for the general public in markets like the United States where mobile payments hadn't yet proliferated.

Still, there is much to compare between Apple and Google's upcoming operating systems. There are reasons to try the iOS 11 beta and reasons to skip it. You can now switch from one track to another via a single tap. These services are great, but most people have no idea they exist. Meanwhile, Siri has a new voice, a new visual interface, the ability to perform task management, and a new translation feature that is still in beta. Apple's iPhones will now be able to read NFC tags and read messages that contain NDEF data. It's just so easy...

Although Apple's new Do Not Disturb function is unlikely to solve automotive fatalities or accidents stemming from cellphone distraction, the feature's introduction does show that the company is paying attention to what's happening on our roads, unlike too many drivers.

If someone does text you while you're driving, the phone can respond with an automatic message telling them you're driving and can't respond just now. (Many reviewers have suggested that the current incarnation of Apple's assistant already trails competitors in key respects.) "This is the start of the AI wars", he said.

Apple's move follows a lawsuit filed by a family in December 2016, after their 5-year-old daughter was killed by a distracted driver allegedly using the FaceTime video chat feature. From there, it's a very small step to using Apple Pay in stores to make purchases.

Apple CEO Tim Cook thinks augmented reality could be as big as the smartphone. This lets you see how the update will effect your library.

The implementation in Pokemon Go is a bit elementary, but it has been a nice little intro to AR for millions of people.

Users will now be able to share the Wi-Fi passwords in iOS 11, something that not even Android can boast of.

The P2P payments come with the new iOS 11 update, and is seamlessly being integrated with iMessage. "Like never before, games and apps can offer fantastically immersive and fluid experiences that are out of this world, yet virtually within it".

The HomePod is Apple's first new gadget in almost three years, following its announcement of the Apple Watch in September 2014. And that's where things get really exciting. During Jobs' last decade, Apple introduced the iPod, iPhone and iPad - all huge commercial successes that both reshaped daily life and swamped previous digital music players, smartphones and tablets. Then, apps can place virtual objects on top of physical ones on the iOS device's display. It's fantastic for gaming, design, and in some other areas, but it's not something that will see widespread adoption for the average consumer anytime soon.
