Twitter user Devon T has revealed that iOS 11 has a new volume indicator that no longer obstructs the centre of the screen, as it does now. The use of such a technology would be instrumental in saving lives lost due to distracted driving.
iOS 11 will deliver "the biggest AR platform in the world", Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, said Monday in a statement.
According to reports, the upcoming iOS update includes a new Wi-Fi-sharing feature that should save you from digging behind your couch to find out what the password on your router actually is, The Verge says.
The iPhone screen will also be locked to prevent drivers from using many of their apps while driving.
New smart speaker expected as Apple kicks off conference
The HomePod speaker unveiled Monday is similar to devices from rivals, some of which have been on the market for years. Google already tries to be proactive with its Assistant on Android phones and Google Home speaker .
A new feature which stops a driver receiving notifications on an iPhone when it detects the device is in a vehicle is being introduced to the next version of the phone's operating system.
Until now, the only app able to make use of the iPhone's NFC capabilities was Apple Pay. The new "Do Not Disturb" feature will come to the iPhone when iOS 11 arrives this fall, but it can be disabled if users prefer.
Meanwhile, the iOS 11 update will improve digital assistant Siri's voice and language capabilities with the help of machine learning and artificial intelligence. He's also shared a small video on how it works on the iPhone, and it seems that the feature works within apps only, and there's no "spring loading" as seen on macOS.
Apple brings its traditional file management to the iPad with iOS 11. Geskin also posted schematic images that purport to show the design of the new iPhone. Passengers who are just riding, and not driving, will have the ability to disable the feature.
