A giant step for iPhone. A monumental leap for iPad.
The bandwidth has been coping a hammering today by everyone updating to iOS 11, but what’s all the fuss about?
iOS 11 sets a new standard for what is already the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. It makes iPhone better than before. It makes iPad more capable than ever. And now it opens up both to amazing possibilities for augmented reality in games and apps. With iOS 11, iPhone and iPad are the most powerful, personal and intelligent devices they’ve ever been.
Click Here to see what Apple has to say about the update. Following are a few of my favourites.
- Do Not Disturb While Driving – iPhone can now sense when you might be driving and help keep you from being distracted by calls, text messages and notifications. People trying to message you can automatically be notified that you’re driving.
QuickType keyboard – Type with one hand tied behind your back. Holding a coffee in one hand and your iPhone in the other? Simply touch and hold the emoji or globe key, select one-handed typing, and the keys will instantly move closer to your thumb.
- The new Dock, bottom line, a more powerful way to work – The new Dock is a foundational change for iPad. It’s now available from any screen. So with just a swipe, you can open and switch apps instantly. And you can customise it with more of your favourites. Apps you’ve opened recently and apps that are currently open on your iPhone or Mac appear in the right side of the Dock.
If you haven’t updated already, it’s always a good idea to back up your phone or iPad first, just in case.
