Apple iOS 11: Features you need to know about

Ikea's AR App Helps You Imagine What Its Furniture Would Look Like in Your Home

iOS 11 is the coming of age of the iPad.

Apple said at the launch of the new iPhones that the latest software update will be available today (Tuesday, September 19). All of that head been leading up to today. Before you do, however, you should know that iOS 11 is an app breaker. While you'll have to make sure that your phone or tablet will be able to receive the new iOS update, the early word-of-mouth online seems mostly positive about the new features. You will be required to download it on your iOS device and then install it. How many of you are now running an iOS device? For those of you in Australia or Japan...

You can find more details on upgrading over-the-air, and alternatively over iTunes on the Apple Support website. It will then automatically start downloading once the download is available.

Apple says iOS 11 will use a new compression standard called HEVC that can store high-resolution images and videos using half the storage space as older image files. You won't notice any huge changes in appearance or operation but you should notice handy improvements that make iOS 11 feel more intuitive and easy to use. The feature can be accessed through Control Center and is capable of recording external audio.

Apple announced last year that it would start to inform users of older and outdated apps, and this year, made a decision to finally stop supporting the older programs. That's right! Screen recording is now built into the operating system. CNet has a nice overview of the Files app and its navigation and file management tricks. You can drag your finger from the bottom edge of the screen to bring it up at any time. How handy is that? If you're not in a huge rush, try waiting till later in the evening to update, or even waiting a couple of days. One of the big features is translation.

Check out 9to5Mac on YouTube for more Apple news! There will also be an optional iMessage auto-reply to alert selected contacts when you are driving.

Apple fanatics need to remember that this new operating system isn't compatible with all iPhone and iPad models.

Apple Maps has introduced indoor mapping for a range of places, such as Heathrow Airport and shopping centres worldwide. That should certainly be a handy feature for travelers visiting a new spot for the first time. Well, the answer is Apple releases OS updates at 10 AM Pacific Time. Apple usually implements a queue system to ensure speedy downloads once you're at the front of the queue.
