The iPhone is getting drag and drop too with iOS 11

The iPhone is getting drag and drop too with iOS 11

And while the announcement was certainly not a surprise, the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system will be packed with "new experiences and hundreds of features". When Apple's iOS 11 update comes out this fall, it will include a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" mode. This is what allows digital content to be overlaid on the real world.

With iOS 10, Apple upgraded the look and functionality of the iMessage with stickers, emojis, and more.

"The area I'm personally excited about is AR, " Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said in an interview with Bloomberg Television.

With the iOS 11 update, what you write with Pencil in Notes will instantly become searchable text (no words on the limits of legibility), and you can also add inline drawing to text documents. If you receive money through iMessage it will straight go to Apple Pay Cash card.

"We think this is going to be a really important step for safety in the vehicle", said Craig Federighi, Senior Vice President of Software Engineering at WWDC. The add-on must be turned on voluntarily and it can be turned off if you are in a vehicle and are not driving.

Siri now has a male, American voice, and is said to be more expressive, in both the male and female form, thanks to a new visual interface.

But one new feature stood out above the rest.

The last time consumers really thought about refresh rate was when they bought an HDTV and even most of those companies have stopped talking about how many times per second their screens refreshed (anything lower than 60Hz and the screen flickers, sports stays smooth with 120Hz).

Despite the fact that the new iPad Pro's 10.5in display gives it 20% more screen space than the original 9.7in model, it doesn't feel much bigger in the hand.

Apple's move follows a lawsuit filed by a family in December, 2016, after their five-year-old daughter was killed by a distracted driver allegedly using the FaceTime video chat feature.

Along with these, there were smaller updates like introduction of person-to-person Apple Pay transfers, drag-and-drop multitasking on iPad, a do-not-disturb while driving mode, and Amazon Prime video on the Apple TV. This will help you to optimize device storage and smaller and faster backups of iOS and macOS with end-end encryption.

Apple Pay will be available in 50 percent of retailers in the USA by end of year.

Developers of ARKit took on stage and revealed a sharper, better stable version of Pokemon in the iPhone. The devices are available to pre-order today and will start shipping next week.
