Hands on with Apple's first Developer Beta of iOS 11

Monday, 12 Jun, 2017

Now that you have successfully set up this new iOS 11 feature, it is time to learn how to use it. Read on for our run-down of the new features, and find out how you might be affected.

Apps that only run in 32-bit will not show up in search results in the new version of the App Store, or be available from the Purchased tab if they have been downloaded previously.

At this point in time, we only have our hands on the first developer beta of iOS 11.

This update is expected to release for iPhones ands iPads that support iOS 11 sometime within this fall, so prepare to free up that brain space for some other sequence of numbers and letters.

A one-handed keyboard, improved Apple Maps and customisable Control Centre are also included in this huge update. These new voices will be able to translate from English to a variety of languages, including Mandarin and Spanish.

"Siri understands context, your interests, and how you use your device", Mashable quoted Craig Federighi as saying. Live Photos - the moving pictures Apple introduced back in 2015 - are getting a few new editing options, including a looping one that seems highly reminiscent of our dearly departed Vine. The iPhone still contributes more than 60 percent of Apple revenue.

When a user attempts to connect to an unknown Wi-Fi network, he or she is instructed to hold the iPhone or iPad next to another iOS device or Mac that is connected to the network. Even though they're available on the cloud, your messages will still be protected with end-to-end encryption.

This feature won't be useful with every app, as some apps like Facebook already store settings and user data on the cloud. From there, that money can be used to pay other people, or be deposited from the cash card to a bank account. The keynote starts at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET and can be streamed here for those of you using Safari via iOS or macOS or Microsoft's Edge browser on Windows 10.
