As Apple has recently released a public beta of iOS 11, the final stable version is very near to getting out. iOS is always said to be a step backward than Android but the Apple users always expect something great and new on the table.
Though as of now only iOS 11 public beta is out, it is very much stable and usable for day-to-day tasks. And also updating to iOS 11 public beta is also not a hell lot of task but just need an online sign-up, and then the user will automatically receive an OTA (Over-the-Air) update. So if you want to get a taste of the latest iOS 11 then you should surely update your devices onto it.
Well, before updating you must actually know what is new, right? So here are the 11 features in iOS 11 that can make you update to it.
Taking a screenshot will now offer the user to edit the screenshot with doodle art and crop option.
Though there is no change in the shortcut of taking a screenshot and pressing the home button and lock screen together will capture the screen.
Now the new control center in iOS 11 offers the recording the screen activity. The user can save the file in video format which can be shared with the friends later on.
Live Photos now give the user option to select the best frame to act as the still image. This feature was not available in any of the previous version of iOS.
With iOS 11, iMessage has also got some UI changes. "Echo" and "Spotlight" effects in iMessage. Apple will soon release more emojis too.
Now with iOS 11, Siri can translate English words into Spanish, French and many other languages. Yes, this feature is already available in Google Assistant but it always great to have something new on board in Siri.
This feature is a treat for 16GB variant holders! With this, the app which is not accessed by the user since a long will automatically be uninstalled in the case of low on board storage. Though don't worry, the app will just grey out and the user data will be saved, so the user can reinstall the app with the saved data anytime he/she wants to.
Okay, this is so going to help the people with iPhone Plus. Now the user can enjoy one-handed keyboard on 'tapping and holding' emoji icon. Helpful when handling the phone with one hand.
Obviously, nothing new for Android users but who cares?
The pop-up notification is already nothing new for the iPhone users but there is a slight change to that. With the latest iOS 11, the user can toggle between a persistent notification or temporary notification. Upon selecting the persistent notification, the notification will not disappear till the user manual swipe it off.
Again not interesting for the users already aware with Windows OS, but for the iPad users, this is a great update which can make the interface a little bit easy. The user can actually work on two apps at the same time, like working on excel sheet while watching a YouTube video.
iOS 11 supports adding an instant doddle or drawing into the mail. While drafting a mail just long press on the screen and it will allow you to insert a drawing art. Just draw anything you like and it will be mailed to the next person (yes, only if you tap send).
With iOS 11 Apple has finally got rid of the annoying giant volume slider that actually used to cover the whole of the screen. Now, while watching a video, the volume slider will show up on a side of the screen to provide an interruption free video experience.
