6 features that will come on your iPhone and iPad with iOS 11
Just like every year, Apple is all set to launch the new iOS 11 for iPhone and iPad. As per the past experience, new iOS look is going to be unveiled in World-Wide Developers Conference event, which will be held in San Jose in June.

Today in this article we have brought you the 6 best features which are expected to come on your iPhone and iPad.

Artificial Intelligence enabled Siri

Artificial intelligence (AI) enabled voice assistants to seem to be the new fad in the smartphone industry. While Google’s Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa have made their way not just to smartphones, but even to smart devices, HTC has come out with its own Sense Companion and Samsung is developing Bixby.

All these voice assistants are beating Apple’s Siri at its own game. While Siri was the first intelligent voice assistant from a major smartphone maker, it seems like it has lost its first-mover advantage to newer voice assistants since they offer much more functionality. Siri simply answers questions based on associated Google searches, conducts conversation based on pre-recorded responses and performs simple tasks such as setting reminders. But voice assistants such as the Google Assistant do much more, including letting the user book tickets and pay using his/her voice. They also evolve continuously with usage.

Enhanced 3D Touch

Apple introduced its 3D Touch feature in the iPhone 7. The feature makes use of the device’s pressure-sensitive display to respond to user inputs. In iPhone 8, the technology is expected to be employed throughout the body of the device, replacing physical buttons with pressure-sensitive ones embedded inside rather than protruding on the outside of the device. iOS 11 is expected to have improved software to accommodate this functionality and even extend the functionality to apps.

Depth-sensing camera and Kinect-like functionality

The iPhone 8 is expected to be an augmented reality intensive device. The device is expected to come with a 3D-sensing front camera that will have a depth sensing functionality for games and facial recognition, similar to Microsoft’s Xbox 360’s Kinect functionality. iOS 11 is also expected to have enhanced gaming software that utilizes the camera, CPU, and GPU in order to support this feature.

No 32-Bit support

iOS 11 could end support for 32-bit iPhones as it is expected to stop the support for 32-bit applications. Simply put, with iOS 11, Apple might stop software support for iPhone 5 and lower variants.

Improved Maps

Apple is planning to use drones and indoor navigation software to improve its Maps functionality and catch up with Google Maps, Bloomberg Technology reported in December.  The new feature could include views of buildings and improvements to car navigation and is expected to be included in iOS 11.

Video Sharing App

iOS 11 could introduce a Snapchat-like video sharing app, according to a Bloomberg report from August last year. The feature would be part of Apple’s endeavor to integrate social networking applications within iOS, in response to the success of similar features on social networking apps such as Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram.
