Apple has rolled out the massive changes in the latest version of its mobile OS, iOS 11. Here’s a look at how iOS 11 will ‘change’ iPhones and iPads.
Note: The size of the update is 1.9GB.
New Features of iOS 11
Here are the 10 new features of iOS 11 for which you cannot resist yourself from updating.
1. Type queries to Siri
Apple iOS 11 allows users to type queries to Siri instead of just speaking to them.
Before iOS 11, after taking a screenshot on an iPhone, users are required to go the Photos app to view it. After updating to iOS 11, Once a screenshot is taken, a miniature version of it appears at the bottom left corner. Users can directly tap on it to view or edit it.
3. Wi-Fi passwords
iOS 11 makes it easier for users to share Wi-Fi passwords with other iOS devices. The only requirement is that all of them should be running iOS 11.

4. Screen recording
Apple iOS 11 now includes the functionality to record the smartphone’s screen and save the recorded videos to the device’s camera roll.
5. File System
iOS 11 also brings the new Files app, replacing the iCloud Drive app. The Files app lets users access their attachments and other files in an easy manner.
6. Colour invert
Smart Invert reverses the color of the entire display, except for images, media and some apps that use dark color schemes. It can be accessed under ‘Accessibility’ in General settings.
7. Spam message filter
Now user can filter out the spam messages they receive from time to time. Apple will be using its machine learning technology to achieve this.
8. Message Sync across devices
Users will now be also able to sync their messages across different Apple devices with cloud integration.
9. Document Scanner
Now, it is possible to scan documents using a iOS 11 device, not need to install any 3rd party app like Cam Scanner. Users simply need to open the Notes app, create a new one and tap on scan documents.
10. Photos app
The Photos app has also been improved in the iOS 11. The highlight is the improved Live Photos app that now lets you choose any of the snaps as your primary photo.
Personally, I am very happy after the upgrade only for the fact that Apple shouldn’t have changed the network carrier signal icons at the top status bar 🙁
