Apple's iOS 11 Hopes To Reinvent the iPad

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.

The biggest change is likely to see banking apps allow users to make payments from within their apps and London's Oyster card offered as a direct payment option on iPhone, bypassing Apple Pay altogether. Games now have a dedicated section, with recommendations, new releases and collections picked by Apple staff. Various leaks indicate the latest flagship device, which might be named something other than iPhone 8, and two other new iPhones could be delayed due to OLED screen supply constraints and other issues.

The interesting thing is that iOS 11 sports a feature that will allow users to easily share Wi-Fi passwords. The iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and iPad 4 are going to settle for iOS 10.

Reddit users with access to the developer-only beta of the new operating system uncovered the screen capturing tool, Gizmodo reports. In general terms, the iOS 11 was more of an update for iPad with a number of features that will come handy for the iPad users. The users will have to log into Facebook first in mobile Safari and then head to the third-party app and log into it using Facebook. That means you won't get to use the feature that much.

Meanwhile, the iOS 11 update will improve digital assistant Siri's voice and language capabilities with the help of machine learning and artificial intelligence. The Cupertino giant talked about improvements to iMessage, its native messaging client, but forgot to mention an interesting new and useful feature that's making its way to the same - Business Chat.

The company sometimes uses WWDC to announce new products, as it did last night when it introduced the HomePod, (a smart home speaker introduced by Apple under the guise of "reinventing home music"), which is Apple's answer to the Amazon Echo or Google Home. Control Center is also one page, and Messages are headed to iCloud so you can delete them across devices.
