The mobile operating system developed by Apple has taken the technology world by storm ever since its inception and the users are extremely satisfied with the features provided by it. iOS was launched in the year 2007 for iPhone and was later made available for other Apple devices such as iPad and iPod touch. The App Store contains numerous iOS apps and all of them are downloaded several times by the users.
Nevertheless, the iOS 10 which was launched on September 13, 2016, was highly well received by the users due to the inclusion of innovative features in the operating system as well as the advancements in the technologies. The upgrade in iMessage, Photos, Siri and 3D Touch of the devices, the iOS 10 came as an extremely overwhelming platform for rejuvenating the system of one’s Apple device.
Therefore, the upcoming iOS 11 is expected to be more powerful than its predecessors. Reports have highlighted that iOS 11 might be made available to the users in September 2017 but nothing has been officially confirmed yet. Therefore, the tech fanatics just can’t wait for the upcoming operating system by Apple to hit the markets.
Some reports have also stated that the iOS 11 might be launched along with the iPhone 8 and there might be a possibility as quite a few reports have stated about the same. But let’s not jump to a conclusion until and unless the tech giants from Apple give an official statement on it. And as far as the features of the upcoming operating system by Apple are concerned, it is said that the iOS 11 might come up with a great Siri upgrade. This upgrade was there in iOS 10 as well and this time also Apple can mull over the thought of upgrading Siri.
The Apple Pay which was first launched for iPhone 6, 6 Plus and the iPhone SE is expected to be more secure this time by downloading the iOS 11. Users obviously want to feel safe while purchasing something through their debit or credit cards so this upgrade is quite legit.
Some speculations also report that the iOS will be compatible with the finger detecting dynamic keyboard that Apple is reportedly developing. It’s a pretty unique technology that positions a dynamic keyboard on the touchscreen. Here the keys of the keyboard appear positioned by the user’s fingertips. There an Apple patent entitled ‘Finger hover detection for improved typing’ under which explains the concept where the typing “is improved by dynamically and automatically positioning the desired home-row keys of an onscreen keyboard below the user’s fingers while their fingers are hovering above the surface, thus reducing the need for the user to look at the onscreen keyboard while typing”.
One exciting thing that iOS 11 will bring is the dark mode which is going to help people using the phone at night. Usually, when you ask Siri for the dark mode, Siri say “sorry, but I’m not able to change that setting”. It’s surprising that for a powerful OS like iOS, it doesn’t allow a night mode. Even Twitter allows night mode that has not just helped users already using the social media app and but has also drawn new users who feel they can use the app at night without worrying that their eyes will suffer.
Fans are also expecting to come up with the Virtual Reality facility on the upcoming iOS 11 as the feature is quite trending as well as advanced these days. Therefore, this additional feature might have all the possibilities to make iOS 11 extremely intriguing. However, Reports have also stated that Apple might think of customizing the Control Center as well by making it more user-friendly and convenient for the users to access through it. Therefore, the tech fanatics are hoping that Apple comes up with this upgrade.
