Among the devices that will support iOS 11 is the iPhone 8. Videos will now being HEVC format instead of H.264, while photos will be HEIF instead of JPEGs.

Siri Translations- Siri translations are coming to iOS 11, and this is one of the bigger iOS 11 details we wanted to share with you. It will also offer a better integration across your devices, always learning based on what you're doing across iOS, watchOS, tvOS and iCloud. Users will now be able to zoom in on shopping centers and airports to get a view inside and even move about floors. Your friends or the people you are paying will need to be using iOS as well in order for this feature to work.

While the use of NFC's tag reading mode represents a positive step for Apple users and NFC proponents, the technology's card emulation mode - the one that would enable the iPhone to serve as an identity or security credential - appears to remain off limits for now.

Apple has also upgraded the Control Center for iOS 11 and has now made it much more user friendly. At the same time, iOS 11 lays ground work for the future, in that it "opens up to unbelievable possibilities for augmented reality in games and apps".

As expected with an iOS update, Apple Music will also be getting a revamp this year. The software update is set to be released alongside the new iPhones, which will undoubtedly come out of the box with the new OS.

According to Troughton-Smith, Apple has included the helpful one-handed keyboard in the iPhone operating system since 2014, but has never allowed customers to access it. To put the app store's growth in perspective: when the original iPhone launched, the App Store only featured 500 apps - now, Apple's digital storefront is home to over 2.2 million apps and games.

The most striking aspect of the renders, however, is the fact that the iPhone 8 on display is seen running iOS 11 giving on-lookers a clear view of what Apple's soon to be released operating system would look like on the next iPhone. There are also sections for Games and Apps as well, making it easier to find content. Reviews and ratings are also laid out more clearly. This allows your iOS device to reply to your messages and it will mute your phone all together if the iOS device senses movement consistent with driving. The new iOS 11 promises to be extremely tablet-friendly and aims to make iPads function well in lieu of laptops.
