Features of iOS 11 that makes your iPad feel like a Mac

Apple's iOS 11 beings a wide range of new features to the iPhone and iPad and it brings a complete redesign to the app store.

Then, as reported by Engadget, a developer document emerged seemingly-confirming that iOS 11 will let developers create apps that make use of the iPhone's NFC chip. The iOS update will be available free to iPhone, iPad, and iPod users sometime this fall, Apple said.

"Apple took out a series of patents more than three years ago created to address the issue of driver safety, so while this new feature has been rather a long time coming it's a positive step that the majority of drivers with an iOS device will be able to benefit from it by the autumn".

Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, first announced the new feature at the Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, USA Today reported.

Soon, Apple will introduce a new iPhone feature that will do away with that annoying - and risky - urge to look at a text message while you're driving.

Apple will introduce this feature on iOS nearly six months after the company was sued with a class action lawsuit for not introducing such a system. Other navigation apps, like Google Maps, will also work, although not quite as easily. For example, based on searches made using the Safari browser, Siri will be able to offer more personalized place and topic suggestions on Mail, Messages and other apps.

Do you want Apple to keep the feature or make it exclusive for the iPad?

Elsewhere, iOS 11 now boasts a number of upgrades to Siri - including translations, better photography features, a tweaked camera app, and even the ability to send cash to your friends via Apple Pay. While manufacturing has been said to be delayed because of supply issues, mass production of the new iPhones has now started, Latvian designer Benjamin Geskin noted in a tweet yesterday. Just like that, the iPhone can also now connect to the WiFi network.
