Apple has launched the iOS 11 in WWDC 2017, and the new OS has lots of new and improved features. If you recollect the launch event and reports about the OS, there was a focus on iOS 11’s new features for iPad, the redesigned Control Centre along with the redesigned App Store.




But wait there are lots of new features that have been added to OS and even Apple has not talk about the same in the launch event. There could be many reasons for that, while time constrain remains on top.

In this article, we are going to talk about the five secret features of iOS 11 which is hidden deep in settings.



No more third-party app logins via social media




Apple iOS 11 won’t have a native login for Facebook, Twitter anymore. Users will no longer be able to use these social networks to log into any other app.

Editing screenshots

Apple iOS 11 will let users edit screenshots before they save it. A user will be able to add some markers to screenshots before saving them. This could work well, especially in cases where you wish to highlight something particular in a screenshot.

Support for FLAC lossless audio




This one is out thanks to dedicated Reddit threads, which are discussing all the hidden features of Apple iOS 11. According to one thread, Apple is adding support for FLAC lossless audio in iOS 11, and the user was able to play FLAC files directly via the Files app on their iPhone 6s Plus.

The files can be synced via the iCloud drive on the iOS device. However, as a post on The Verge explains, FLAC files don’t work in Apple Music app. That’s because Apple Music still supports Apple’s own ALAC format for music. For audiophiles, the fact that iOS devices might soon support FLAC files with lossless audio quality will come as good news.

Improved Gmail notifications via Mail app

According to a report on 9to5, Apple iOS 11 adds a new ‘Automatically’ tab for the fetch schedule in the push notifications in the Mail app. For those who had synced their Gmail accounts, this means they will now see a lot more notifications appear from the native Mail app itself, rather than always relying on the Gmail or Inbox app.




However, as the report notes, this is still for ‘Fetch’ function, which means the notifications will only appear when the iPhone is on power and connected to a Wi-Fi network. On cellular data connectivity, the Mail app won’t always show ‘Fetch’ notifications.
