8 Great features which are expected to come on your iPhone and iPad with iOS 11

8 Great features which are expected to come on your iPhone and iPad with iOS 11
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 by 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.

Let’s have a look at 8 features which is expected to make a way for your iPhone and iPad after the launch of iOS 11.
Sync Photos People Albums Across Devices

The new Photos app is pretty robust–but one frustration remains: if you set up People albums on Photos on a Mac (or other iOS devices) they will not sync over iCloud Photo Library to all your devices. Other albums do, why not People?

Handoff for Media

Handoff and Continuity are great features of iOS and MacOS that allow you to, for example, start composing an email on one device and finish it on another. It would be great if Apple added Handoff support for media too. For example, you can be listening to a song in Appel Music on your iPhone, but when you get home to hand it off to your Mac or Apple TV. Same goes for movies too.

Customizable Control Center

Control Center was perhaps the best feature included in iOS 7. With a swipe, up from the bottom of any screen users could finally quickly toggle Airplane mode, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and rotation lock on or off. Users also finally got quick access to music controls and shortcut icons to Flashlight, Timer, Calculator, and Camera. What would be great, however, is if Apple would allow users to customize these four shortcut buttons. For example, I don't use the Timer that much, so I’d love to replace its shortcut button in Control Center with a button for Calendar, an app I use a lot. Oh yeah, and integrate 3D Touch gestures into Control Center customization.

Voicemail Transcription Leaves Beta

In iOS 10 Apple introduced Voicemail Transcription, which allows you to see a transcription of a voicemail message, without you needing to actually listen to the message. However, this feature in iOS 10 was only in beta–and it showed. Here’s hoping iOS 11 has a completed Voicemail Transcription feature that’s ready for prime time.

The Ability to Merge Apple IDs

This isn’t a feature specific to iOS 11, although it would benefit every iOS user. When Apple introduced Apple ID’s over 15 years ago they started out as membership IDs for people paying for their iTools and.Mac services. However, when the iTunes Store came into being in 2003, Apple started using Apple ids for that. Then for the App Store as well. The problem is over the last 15 years many people accumulated more than one Apple ID, leading them to make some purchases under one and some purchases under another. Needless to say, having one digital ID is best and leads to a lot less confusion, so here’s hoping this year is finally the year Apple allows users to merge Apple ids into one.

Dark Mode

With OS X Yosemite, Apple finally added Dark Mode to the operating system. This allows users to replace the white menu bar and dock with a darker version. Professionals love this because if they are editing video, photos, and doing other graphics work, the dark elements of OS X allow them to focus more on their work. While the iPhone and iPad aren’t as big of productivity devices for professionals as the Mac (though that is changing with the iPad Pro) we still think it’d be awesome to see a dark mode on iOS 11.

Show/Hide nested folders in Mail.app

iOS’s Mail app gets better each year, but one thing still really bugs many users: the app shows all nested folders in your account, which means you have to do a lot of swiping to get to a folder you want. Apple should enable Mail to show/hide nested folders at will. It would make navigating the app much quicker.

Multi-user support

This is a holdover from our iOS 8 wish list. A feature long requested for iOS--particularly on the iPad--is multi-user support. The way this would work is that iOS would allow users to create multiple accounts on a single device. A user could log in with their pin, password, or Touch ID fingerprint and their iOS device would then be fully customized to their last-used settings: everything from app layout to wallpapers to email accounts.

This is arguably a feature more appropriate for the iPad or iPad Pro as often times families or couples share one iPad between then. Also, iPads are frequently shared in work environments. Multiple users account for the iPad in these environments would mean secure sharing among people without the risk of anyone else seeing your private information. As for the iPhone...multiple user accounts could also be enabled, but since our phones are such personal devices it’s not clear how many people actually share their phones with others, to begin with.
