Talk to Siri without talking




Finally. Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Siri and toggle on the “Type to Siri” option. Now you can communicate with Siri by typing instead of only with voice commands.

View older notifications

When you swipe down from the top of the screen now, you get something called a Cover Sheet instead of the old notification center. Making matters even more confusing is the fact that the Cover Sheet looks almost identical to the lock screen, but it only displays a few recent notifications. Want to see the rest? Just swipe up from the middle of the screen.




FaceTime Live Photos

This is a pretty cool new feature that most people probably won’t find on their own. Go to FaceTime in the Settings app and toggle on “FaceTime Live Photos.” Then, while you’re on a FaceTime video call, tap the shutter button to capture a live screenshot.
Convert anything to a PDF

A new button on the iOS share sheet marked “PDF” lets you convert a webpage, photo, or just about anything else to a PDF. You can also mark it up with notes before saving it.

Stop using Apple’s new photo format

In iOS 11, Apple switched to a new HEIF/HEVC photo format it claims takes up much less space without compromising quality. Not buying it? Go to Settings > Camera > Formats and switch “High Efficiency” to “Most Compatible.”




Do Not Disturb While Driving

iOS 11 has a new feature that can prevent you from using your phone while driving. It’s an awesome idea, which makes us wonder why Apple buried it in iOS’s settings. Open the Settings app and go to Do Not Disturb. Then, under “Do Not Disturb While Driving,” tap Activate and select Manually (you’ll have to enable this feature on your own) or “When Connected to Car Bluetooth.”

Handwritten emails

Typing is so impersonal. If you want to spice up your emails, long-press in any open space while you’re composing a new message or a reply in Apple’s Mail app. Then tap “Insert Drawing.”

Background App Refresh options




This is a very cool one. Navigate to Settings > General > Background App Refresh > Background App Refresh and you’ll see a new option where you can choose whether to allow apps to refresh in the background anytime, or only when you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network. This is yet another great way to conserve battery life and cellular data while you’re on the go.

Continue a note without unlocking the phone


Apple’s new Control Center can give users direct access to notes now, which means you won’t even have to unlock your device. In Settings > Notes you can designate an amount of time your most recent note will remain accessible.
