    Apple Launches iOS 11.JPG

    Apple today showcased iOS 11, complete with some particularly impressive new iPad features, at WWDC17 in San Jose today.

    Due to launch this fall, new features include AR Experiences, a new platform that will help developers create AR experience for iOS, as well as an updated Siri, using enhanced machine learning and AI technology and on-device learning to offer more personal experiences based on your use of Safari. One example would be Siri learning topics you are interested in based on your Safari browsing, and then suggesting them when you are typing in Mail, Messages, and other apps.

    Several new features have also been added to Photos, including more expressive Live Photos with Loop and Bounce effects, and more memory categories added to Photos.

    Possibly one of the biggest cheers of the whole day was reserved for the announcement of person-to-person Apple Pay payments directly via Messages, which looked effortless, and also the ability to receive money to your new Apple Pay Cash account.

    The revamp of the Messages stickers and apps interface is very welcome too, making it much easier to find stickers and apps.

    Another great idea is the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature, which detects when you’re driving and changes the display accordingly and also silences your incoming alerts and notifications.

    Likewise, another very useful feature that got a lot of cheers when it was announced was lane guidance added to App Maps.

    Finally, there are several exclusive iPad features in iOS 11, making it “the biggest software release ever for iPad” according to Apple. These include some very impressive multitasking features, complete with a new customizable Dock with quick access to the apps that you use the most, and the new Files app, as well as the ability to Drag and Drop files.

    Here are some other key features of iOS 11:
