iOS 11 What's New?


iOS 11 launched  (Tuesday, September 19), which is exactly one week after the iPhone 8 and iPhone X launch event. It's come out of beta after a four-month test phase.


- iOS 11 features exclusive to the new iPhones.

iOS 11 includes a couple of iPhone X-exclusive features that you won't find on the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, or older handsets.

Apple is combining emoji with animations, and it takes advantage of the iPhone X's 3D face-scanning TrueDepth camera array. The result is Animoji, which tracks the muscles in your face to animate the emoji. All of your Messages texts will benefit (or suffer, depending on your view of expressive emoji).

Face ID and home-button-replacing gesture-swiping will also be an iPhone X-only feature. Face ID replaces Touch ID as a biometric sensor, and it's going to take time for people to learn how iOS 11 replaces the home button on the new flagship Apple phone.

Portrait Lighting, also available on the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, is an option Apple has added to its existing background-blurring Portrait Mode photos. It uses the dual-lens depth-sensing camera and machine learning to simulate a range of lighting effects: Contour Light, Natural Light, Stage Light, Stage Light Mono, and Studio Light.

-How iOS 11 changes your current iPhone and iPad

iOS is an especially big upgrade for the iPad, which can now be considered a more viable laptop replacement thanks to revamped iOS multitasking. Both the iPad and iPhone get a much-needed Control Center reorganization too.

Apple Pay will support peer-to-peer money transfer, there are new camera modes, Siri is smarter.

Here the highlights of iOS 11 beta, and how it'll enhance your existing iPhone and iPad experience.

-Which iPhones are compatible with iOS 11 

Apple has limited its iOS 11 update to phones that run the 64-bit chipset, first introduced with the iPhone 5S, meaning all iPhones before this with a 32-bit processor won't get the update. The same goes for older apps that haven't been updated for the faster chipset. They just won't work.

-Bugs Reported

iOS 11 included many bugs that effects the OS performance and we notesed that with iPhone 6/6plus. Some of the reported bugs:

-iPhone becomes slow.

-WiFi turn on alone after 10 to 15 minutes if you turn it off.

-Charging issues (slow charging or discharging fast)

-unnormal restarts.

Hope that Apple will fix this soon...

 Thanks Apple for all the new features and more security.

  Thanks Techradar for the review
