iOS 11 comes with a lot of new features but we are going to highlight some of the crazy new features which will affect your day to day life.
NEW CONTROL CENTER
The control centre on the iOS 11 is a whole new experience. As a result, it will take some to get used to. All the shortcuts and key tools are now accessible by swiping up once. Much more convenient than older versions. iOS 11 lets you customize the redesigned Control Center so you can change the settings for the things you do most. Though it will not allow you to add 3rd party software. At least for now, hope they will let us add 3rd party software in future. You can use 3D Touch in Control Center to unlock even more commands.
ONE HAND TYPE
You can now easily type with one hand with this feature. Simply touch and hold the emoji or globe key, select one-handed typing, and the keys will instantly move closer to your thumb. There are two modes for right and left-handed people. This is a cool new feature because as phone screen becomes larger every year we all know how hard it is to type with one hand.
SCREENSHOT AND SCREEN RECORDING
Apple added new tools for editing your screenshots on the go. It will allow you to edit and share your screenshot before saving. Also, you can record your screen directly from the new control centre.
The new Files app brings all your files together. You can easily browse, explore, and organize all your files in one place. It is now possible to drag and drop files into the app. You will also get limited zip support in the new file app.
Now you can do much more with live photos. You can even create small animations. They added 3 new options Loop, Bounce and Long Exposure. I really liked the long exposure mode.
NEW SOS FEATURE
The new iOS 11 has a new SOS feature. This feature will activate when you tap 5 times on the sleep/wake button. It will then automatically call for help and disable your touch id.
Now you can share your hotspot without giving away your password. Though the person must be in your contact list.
There are lots of other features too but I think this ware the most important ones. Which new feature is your favourite let us know in the comment section down below.
