The newest mobile operating system for Apple has been released and is sure to impress iPhone users with a whole bunch of benefits. Let us introduce you iOS 11 so you can make your own opinion about its advantages. Here we present you the most important improvements that the company features in the current iOS upgrade. Basically, there are six areas where the major advancements took place:
A sizable step in productivity
With iOS 11, in terms of performance, your iPad is even closer to a laptop than before. The split-screen multitasking modes have undergone a serious upgrade. Now the user can easily start apps in individual sections of the screen with the help of a new application dock. A helpful new feature is the possibility to drag and drop from one app to another such object as moving images, texts, and files.
File management: now even more helpful in business
Since now a great share of our business affairs is carried out through mobile devices, managing our files becomes increasingly important. Apple’s response to this overwhelming trend is the development of the iCloud Drive app in iOS 9 into a lot more sophisticated Files app in iOS 11. The main new feature is a central place where all your files are kept no matter where they were created or downloaded.
Siri: Humanlike and Intelligent
A great deal of improvement has been made in Siri assistant. Siri’s voice is Apple’s great concern so the company has outfitted Siri with smart voice upgrades in the current iOS release. Now the assistant sounds much more human than before due to a multitude of new voice samplings. The intelligence of the upgraded Siri allows it a smart operation with the info of your preferences in order to give you timely notifications and suggestions throughout the day. For that purpose, Siri scans your emails and visits web pages so it can now notify you about approaching events like a conference or air flight. However, Apple emphasizes that in doing so the assistant doesn’t use personal data.
ARKit: A Tool that Deals with Augmented Reality
Another feature of the current iOS upgrade is an augmented reality framework ARKit. One of its functions is creating software so one may expect new apps from the developments based on a tool. The other function consists in creating a real-world environment in tablets and phones which the user can see through the camera. ARKit also can track your movement and create space in front of the camera.
New opportunities for photos and videos processing
In the new iOS version, you can evaluate the benefit of the new compression standard HEVC able to keep images and videos on half of the storage space as older image files. Also featured is the Memories tool, which is able to create custom presentations of videos and photographs with the help of the AI and has a faster scanning capability. In addition, you can now enjoy advanced functions of your Live Photo tool which provides a kind of a video snippet for every photo so you can select the best image from a row of frames.
Advantages in Person-to-Person Payments
And, finally, the payments. Apple Pay tool in iOS 11 can support person-to-person payments in Venmo style. Payments in both directions are performed directly in Messages without resorting to any special application. Also, you can simply order your Siri assistant to carry out a payment based on your credit or debit card set up in Wallet. And when you get paid you can receive your money via a new Apply Pay Cache in Apple Wallet that allows you to use received money instantly. However, that feature is not ready yet and is expected later this autumn.
Besides the six above mentioned areas, a number of minor improvements have been added to the new iOS. They include easier grabbing of screenshots and motions, expanded detecting ability for your phone that works even when you are driving, and smarter maps which now alert you to approach road turns more quickly than their predecessors. Now, instead of telling your requests to Siri you can alternatively type them. Customization of Control Center is a lot simpler task than before and so is released space on your hard disks.
We suppose that the above-mentioned improvements in the recently released iOS 11 are good arguments for you to consider downloading it once the notification appears on your phone. You can upgrade in a few minutes via computer or Wi-Fi. Just don’t forget to back up your data.
