Upcoming features in iOS 11 beta
iOS 11 is going to give your device a new life. Huge changes are coming in iOS 11 beta. We are expecting Smarter Siri, revamp music app, Cool features in iMessage app, Group calling in Facetime, Peer-to-peer payments in Apple Pay, Dark Mode, battary updates and much more.
Over the last one year, Amazon with its Alexa and Google’s Assistant have made huge progress in terms of their AI functionality. On the other hand, Apple’s Siri has more or less the pretty same features since it was born with very little improvements.
With iOS 11, Apple is expected to supercharge Siri’s abilities. Siri will learn from a user’s usage patterns and by offering deeper integration with watchOS, tvOS, iCloud, and its other services. Additionally, it will also be expanding Siri support to more categories which will allow a wider range of apps to integrate and work with the virtual assistant.
Revamped Apple Music
You love Apple Music app more or you love Spotify more? If you love Spotify more then yeah, Apple Music needs some serious improvements. Apple gave Apple Music a complete revamp with iOS 10 last year, and this year with iOS 11, the company is expected to give another new amazing revamp to its music streaming service app. Apple will focus on video content which Apple will be bringing to Apple Music starting with ‘Carpool Karaoke’ on August 8 and follow it up with some more original programming like ‘Planet of the Apps’ later this year. Let’s see what’s inside iOS 11 tomorrow. Get ready to enjoy the new Music revamp.
FaceTime & iMessage Improvements
FaceTime remains one of the coolest features of iOS, and while Apple has kept updating it with time, it has not received any major new enhancements in quite a few years now. Like, Group Calling and other voice changing features etc.
We got reports earlier that, Apple would be making FaceTime Audio the default way of making calls in iOS 11 for all iPhone users, though this is a change that is unlikely to go down well with US carriers. If Apple does end up switching to FaceTime Audio as default, iPhone owners post iOS 11 would be able to enjoy a higher quality calling experience and group video calling as well.
Additionally, FaceTime will be receiving a much-needed update to add support for group video calling for up to 5 people.
Peer-to-Peer Payments in Apple Pay
Apple has been steadily improving Apple Pay since its launch in 2014 alongside the iPhone 6. In iOS 11, Apple is rumored to add peer-to-peer payment support in its mobile payment service. This will allow iPhone owners to easily send money to other Apple Pay users right from their phone, with the service apparently being called Apple Cash.
Automatic Low Power Mode
A rumor from an unverified source claimed that Apple will be introducing an automatic low power mode in iOS 11. The feature will analyze when you use the Low Power mode on your iPhone — the time at which you usually switch it on and at what battery level, and it will then automatically enable it for you. The feature will also account your location and iPhone’s battery level to automatically turn on the Low Power mode.
Apple introduced a Dark Mode in macOS 10.12 last year and it has been secretly testing a dark mode in iOS 10 as well as we have seen in many videos on youtube. We are hoping to see a dark mode in the iOS 11 in our iPhone. Plenty of stock Apple apps also have a hidden dark mode, with third-party iOS apps already featuring their own dark mode. Let’s not think of Cydia tweaks now, Hope Apple will add the Dark mode option in iOS 11.
Apple will reportedly be bringing multi-user support to tvOS 11 this year. And since iOS and tvOS share the same code base, it is likely that we will see multi-user support being present in iOS 11 as well. The feature will likely only be available on the iPad as having it on the iPhone makes very little sense, cz it’s your iPhone after all, you don’t need to have other users. iPad is used by many people in a family, while everyone has their own personal iPhone.
There’s a lot more that we hope Apple ends up adding to iOS 11 including an improved multitasking experience on the iPad, the ability to set default apps, and more. However, given the lack of leaks on this front, it is difficult to say if Apple will be bringing these features to the next major release of the world’s most advanced operating system or not. There are a lot more features that we’d like to see in iOS 11, but that’s what we wish for, and it’s not necessary that Apple will end up introducing them all.
