Apple's iOS 11 release date, features you should know

Posted June 11, 2017

Apple kicked off its biggest event of the year on Monday.

However, according to Mac Rumors, some developers who have had an opportunity to try out the iOS 11 beta have posted details about the QR code scanning feature on Twitter. Make sure you're comfortable with that before signing up. As with any preview or beta, you should know that not everything is guaranteed to work and you take a risk running such software.

Originally spotted by Cydia Geeks, when enabled, the Offload Unused Apps feature will remove apps that you never use, while keeping their documents and data on your device.

iOS 11's refinement and redesign of Apple's iOS ecosystem has been the talk of the town in the past 2 days.

For logging into any third-party app, you don't need to manually enter your details, the iOS is smart enough to log you into the apps using your Facebook or Twitter accounts. You cannot only turn a live photo into a video loop but also make your photos bounce back and forth. Before iOS 11, people could only view GIFs in specific messaging platforms like WhatsApp or Twitter.

So, before following the steps below, and assuming your device has enough space, you should update your current apps to see if they've already been upgraded: open the App Store and tap "Updates" followed by "Purchased" on an iPhone, or simply "Purchased" on an iPad. The good part about the feature is that it not only organises files on your iPad and iPhone but also those in apps, in iCloud and in Dropbox.

64-bit apps have been supported since 2013's iPhone 5s, ushering in a period where Apple aggressively pushed developers to create such apps for their current smartphone line-up. OneDrive integration with the Files app will make it easier for you to access your content from any Apple device and will provide a better file management experience on iOS for your personal and work OneDrive and SharePoint sites. This is about to change as developers will soon have the option to keep app reviews and the rating for the current version when they release an update.

Siri also uses on-device learning in iOS 11 to learn more about topics that are interesting to us.
