WWDC 2017: iOS 11 features Apple didn't have time to announce

WWDC 2017: With the new update Siri is getting a new voice on the iPhone and will come with a male option for the first time. Microsoft will share more details about OneDrive support for the new Files app when iOS 11 releases in the Fall. "Now, we are taking everything we've learned from the App Store over the past nine years and putting it into a stunning new design". In addition to that, users will also be able to take notes directly from the Lock Screen via the Instant Notes feature which can be accessed simply by tapping on the display. This kit will let developers use the built-in camera, powerful processors and motion sensors in iOS devices to create AR experiences. That money can immediately be used in retail stores that take Apple Pay or can be moved to a bank account. Apple hails the devices as having the world's most advanced display with Promotion technology inside and a new A10X Fusion chip for "incredible performance".

Apple has made the personal assistant more versatile using the latest machine learning and artificial intelligence tech.

Perhaps of more interest to gamers is the new iMac Pro. Siri will be able to perform translations in various languages including English, Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

It's not always convenient to have a voice chat with our smartphones, so the text chat with Siri is a welcome update. The new iOS will now guarantee iMessages app to remain perfectly synced across all of other devices. Although the physical apps haven't changed much, they're more prominent in the Messages app than ever. Users can send money and get paid in Messages, or tell Siri to pay someone, using the credit and debit cards they already have in Wallet. Apple Pay users will be able to make and receive payments with friends and family. The update, for now, is available as a developer preview, and will be offered for iPhone 5s and beyond, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad 5th generation, and iPad Mini 2 later this year.

iOS 11 introduces the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature to help users stay more focused while driving.

Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of software engineering, unveiled the new iOS (iPhone operating system) at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in California, and explained how "do not disturb while driving" will operate. It's down to one pane rather than three, and you're able to customize settings and buttons to whatever you want.

Apple Maps will get lane guidance for highways and floor plans for indoor malls and airports.

It also enhanced its workout app to, for instance, support high intensity interval training.

Apple Music now offers additional ways to discover music - the one that your friends are listening to. India, Turkey, UAE and other countries and regions will follow later this month. There's a few "suggested" settings up top, like auto-deleting old Messages conversations off your device, or offloading unused app data off your device and onto the cloud.

Apple has also implemented changes to its portrait mode, including better low light photography through its dual cameras.
