5 new features worth checking out in Apple's iOS 11

After announcing the new updates back in June during WWDC, Apple has today released the final stable versions of iOS, watchOS and tvOS.

iOS 11 has arrived, and it brings a number of improvements to your iPhone. But we expect it to open a floodgate of new AR applications and features across the iOS app ecosystem.

The iOS 11 screen record facility can be found in the Control Center, which you access by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.

The latest operating system, iOS 11 was launched by Apple this week and it does seem pretty impressive with several new features.

The Sun Online understands Snapchat introduced the screen recording notifications in a software update rolled out soon after the iOS 11 beta version was released earlier this year.

Apple Maps will not be able to instruct you on direction from within a building such as airports and shopping centers.

iOS 11 also delivers a much-needed update to Siri. This update adds new features like a Siri watch face that'll proactively display the info that you need and the ability to pair your Apple Watch with compatible gym equipment to sync info like heart rate and speed.

The US technology has just released this blockbuster upgrade with iPhone and iPad users now able to access a swathe of new features.

So the good news is that for most people, battery life will improve.

First things first: when you first install any iOS update on your iPhone, iOS 11 included, your phone may slow down and you may experience faster battery drain at first.

Tucsonans may be tempted to get iOS 11 now because it could keep drivers safe behind the wheel.

The majority of iOS updates go by without a hitch but when they don't, they tend to go spectacularly wrong. Additionally, Apple will not allow users to find 32-bit apps in its App Store, effectively killing them off until the app developers update their older apps to support the new 64-bit process, which speeds up apps and makes them more usable on newer iPhones and iPads. On-device learning means Siri is also more personal and continues to get "smarter" with use.

Apple says that multi-tasking has been made easier which is done by: Opening two apps side-by-side, you can now just drag and drop an app icon from the dock to the main screen.
