Four Great features which are expected from iOS 11
First look for iOS 11 is expected in WWDC 2017, which will be held on June 5 to June 9, 2017, at the McEnery Convention Center, in San Jose, California. At the event, Apple is expected to launch the new version of iOS, iOS 11.

Today in this article we have brought 4 features which are expected to be part of the new iOS version from Apple.

Group Call on FaceTime

There are a number of apps that can do multi-user video chats. However, it’s the convenience and accessibility of FaceTime that makes it such a popular choice for video chats.

The one thing it’s lacking (other than an Android app) is group FaceTime chats. It’s kind of surprising that Apple hasn’t jumped on this feature yet already, but adding a multi-user FaceTime chat option would really be a killer feature for iOS. If Apple could find an intuitive way of integrating it right into iMessage, that’d be even better.

Using third-party apps as default

This is one that Apple has been fighting since the day it launched the App Store. Although we can finally do stuff like replacing the keyboard with a third-party one, we still can’t fully replace the functionality of apps like Mail, Maps, and Calendar. If someone sends you an address, it will always open up in Apple Maps, no matter how much you like Google Maps more. It’s bit silly, especially considering the fact that Apple has finally allowed its users to delete its apps in iOS 10.

In Android, you are given a prompt to perform the action in a selection of apps that you have downloaded (or you can set the default within Settings). It’d be great to see Apple finally hand over the last key of customization to its users and let us leave its proprietary apps behind if we so choose.

New Emoji’s & 64-Bit

There are loads of iOS 11 rumors out there but one thing we expect the release to deliver are new emoji’s for the iOS keyboard.

Unicode 10 is scheduled to be released in mid-2017 which means iOS 11 could be the update that brings us Face with Hand Over Mouth, Merperson, Curling Stone, T-Rex, Orange Heart, and Person in Steamy Room, and many more emoji.

If we use the iOS 10 and Unicode 9.0 release as a guide, look for an iOS 11.x update to bring these emoji to your iPhone and iPad. iOS 10.2 delivered Unicode 9.0 emoji’s to iPhone and iPad in December.

Apple will reportedly drop 32-bit support with the iOS 11 release later this year. This isn’t confirmed but all signs point to the change occurring with the release of Apple’s next major operating system.

The first real warning signs appeared in the iOS 10.3 beta when a popup started notifying developers their apps needed to be updated. Here is what the popup in iOS 10.3 beta 1 said:

"This app will not work with future versions of iOS. The developer of this app needs to update it to improve its compatibility."

If this change pans out, it means that legacy applications will no longer function, at all.

Given that this will be a huge change for developers, we expect Apple to detail the change on stage during its annual developer event in June.

Dark Mode

This feature has been rumored for some time now, but we’d love to see Apple deliver on a true Dark Mode on its iOS devices. We have Night Shift, which is great, but it doesn’t take the place of a Dark Mode that can be used in places like movie theaters and restaurants.

Certain apps like Google Maps and Apple Books actually already have similar functions, so it’d be nice to see Apple integrate the mode across the entire operating system.
