The Apple Pencil case won't save you from losing it

Posted June 08, 2017

The free iOS upgrade will be available in the fall. The paired iPhone also needs to be on the latest iOS update for the Watch app to see the latest watchOS software update.

The company showed off a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro alongside a refreshed 12.9-inch model at the WWDC event, and both are set to get iOS 11 when it launches in autumn this year. Recipients will have the money reflected in their Apple Pay account, and it can be used to make payments for purchases at shops or online using Apple Pay.

watchOS: Among the new features about to make it to the Apple smartwatch platform include new watch faces, one of which will have the Siri provide you with the information it believes you might need during the time of the day.

Apple's Echo competitor is a Siri-powered smart speaker that will allow you to play music, check the traffic, control you smart lights, query sports scores and more. Your Siri interactions are synced across devices (and encrypted.) I don't know how much you'll appreciate the new, supposedly more natural-sounding male and female Siri voices.

Individual contacts can be "whitelisted" to be able to receive a special message that informs them that they can text "urgent" back to your number, and then get the first message through to your screen. Plus, the tablet runs on the latest iOS 11, which is created to new iPad Pro focused features.

The new iPhone software will prompt people to turn on the do not disturb mode but the driver can ignore the advice and risk the distraction of looking at a smartphone. One thing we know: augmented reality nearly always makes for a cool demo, even in its simplest form as when an Apple executive made a faux steaming cup of coffee appear on an otherwise barren tabletop.

Screen recording is in iOS 11!

Better start saving if you want one though...

Last year, we saw Siri come to macOS, improved Messages (with stickers!), and improved continuity between Apple laptops and mobile devices.

Of course, the App Store is packed with newer apps, so users should be able to find alternatives in most cases. Airport and indoor maps are also new additions that will sure enrich the Maps utility with iOS 11. The dedicated recent files section gives you access to your recent files from all your iOS devices including the files within apps.

The app's interface is similar to Finder on Mac. For the latest edition of the operating system, Apple has brought in a slew of improvements and features (some of which have existed on the rival platform since ages), enhanced support for the new Apple Pencil, along with a radical new ARKit framework that supports augmented reality-based apps and experiences.
