5 new features of iOS 11 you can expect to come on your iPhone and iPad
We are a couple of months away from getting the first look of iOS 11 in WWDC in June 2017. We have seen many leaks about the features of iOS 11 and about the different power the OS will give to your iPhone and iPad.

The details are also being driven from the latest iOS version, iOS 10.3 and from different leaks of different sources. Today in this article we are going talk about the expectation which you should carry about the new OS from Apple.

Apple isn’t talking about its iOS 11 update just yet but that should change in a few short weeks. 10 weeks to be exact.

Exclusive iOS 11 Features

Count on some exclusive iOS 11 features for the new iPhone and for newer versions of the iPhone, iPad, and iPod.

You can count on an exclusive feature or two for the iPhone 7s/iPhone 8. The iPhone 7 Plus features a Portrait mode, also known as Bokeh mode, that isn’t available on any other iOS devices.

The iPhone 7 also features an updated Taptic Engine that provides feedback when you interact with certain parts of iOS 10. When the Notification Center drops, you’ll feel a thud.

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 Plus version of iOS arrived with the ability to shoot Live Photos. Live Photos move when pressed thanks to 3D Touch.

Most of the time, these features are exclusive because a device doesn’t possess the necessary hardware. For instance, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s don’t feature 3D Touch. Here are a few other examples:

The iPhone 5 iOS 10 update also failed to bring burst photo mode, slow-motion video mode, and voicemail transcription.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus iOS 10 updates didn’t come with the Raise to Wake featured on the iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 7.

Nothing is confirmed but we’re already hearing about some of the iOS 11 features that could help Apple sell the iPhone 7s/iPhone 8.

The company is reportedly planning substantial upgrades to Siri, iOS’ personal assistant. There’s also chatter about improved Haptic feedback.

The specifics don’t matter at this point. What it boils down to is this. If you own or are planning to buy a newer version of the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, your iOS 11 update will be more robust than your friend with an older piece of hardware.

Look for the first iOS 11 features to be confirmed in June at WWDC 2017.

iOS 11 Beta

You can count on an iOS 11 beta release ahead of the official iOS 11 release date.

The WWDC 2017 developer conference is slated to kick off on June 5th in San Jose, California. There, Apple will almost certainly deliver a keynote to its developers and viewers around the world. And it’s during that keynote where we’ll likely see Apple confirm the early version of iOS 11.

If you’re looking to try iOS 11 early, you’ll want to circle June 5th on the calendar. We expect iOS 11 beta to be released shortly after the keynote.

Apple will almost certainly release two versions of the iOS 11 beta: One for developers and one for the free Beta Software Program.

Best case scenario is Apple releases both on the same day. Worst case scenario is Apple waits a few weeks before releasing the free version of the iOS 11 beta.

Developers must pay an annual $99 fee to become a developer and gain access to the beta.

iOS 11 May does not come to these Devices

You can count on some devices being left behind on iOS 10.

Last year, it was iPhone 4s, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad mini, and iPod touch 5th-gen users who were left behind on iOS 9.3.5. This year, we expect at least two devices to be held back on iOS 10.

Nothing is confirmed but we’re confident that Apple will keep the iPhone 5 and the (recently discontinued) iPad mini 2 on iOS 10.

We could see a few others join the list but if you own an iPhone 5 or iPad mini 2 or both, start tempering your expectations.

We’ll probably find out for sure in early June when Apple releases the first version of the iOS 11 beta.

iOS 11 Release Date

Unless Apple goes without a beta, and we suspect that it won’t, you can count on an official iOS 11 release in the fall alongside the company’s new iPhone.

Thus far, iPhone 7s/iPhone 8 release date rumors point to another release in and around the month of September. This has been standard practice for several years now and there’s no reason to believe Apple will stray from protocol.

Apple iPhone/iOS release protocol calls for a fall media event where the company confirms the new iPhone and an iOS release date.

Typically, the company releases new iOS software for older devices a few days ahead of the new iPhone release date.

Look for the iOS 11 beta to stretch over several months with a final iOS 11 release date in September.

New Emojis & 64-Bit

At this point, in our eyes, there are two things you can count on in terms of iOS 11 features. The first is the death of 32-bit emulation.

iOS 10.3 beta testers have discovered a warning message when trying to run 32-bit applications. The message in iOS 10.3 says these apps “will not work with future versions of iOS” and that the developer will need to release an update for them to continue running properly.

The apps work fine on iOS 10.3 which has led many people to believe iOS 11 will usher in a new era.
