Apple already rolled the IOS 11 and while they showed off several of the new features it brings to your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch back at WWDC 2017, they’ve only just touched the surface of what iOS 11 has to offer. There are a lot of cool new (and sometimes secret) features to explore, so we’ve collected them all here for you.
Top IOS 11 Features
Hidden Dark Mode Option
While it’s not the Dark Mode we wanted it to be, it’s the next best thing. Just head to your “Display Accommodations” and turn on “Smart Invert.”It will help you get darker skin experience in setting options.
Share Wi-Fi Passwords with Nearby Devices
No more do you have to try and type out long, complicated passwords on your iPhone. Now you can just ask someone already connected to the network to share their password with you over the air — no typing involved. As long as both devices are running iOS 11, it’ll work (and macOS High Sierra is even supported).The feature also available in Android Xiaomi devices for easy password sharing from one Xioami device to other.
Apple made the Control Center a single page again, instead of the clunky two-page version in iOS 10. Everything gets its own little section, and you can use 3D Touch to expand and interact with most of these options. The whole control center in customizable.
Hidden in the Control Center’s customizable settings, there’s a new Screen Recording option. That means you no longer need QuickTime on your computer or some third-party app that doesn’t work well (or at all).
Realizing that many iPhone users (like myself) have flocked over to third-party keyboards, Apple finally added a significant improvement to bring everyone back — a one-handed typing mode. This simply squishes the stock keyboard over the left or right side so you can type without stretching your thumb out too far. Now they just need to add swipe typing.
The whole UI of App Store got an update.Apps and games also get their own tabs, and ratings and reviews gained new precedence. Developers can even respond to reviews now, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on how you look at it.
