File management is getting way better

Anyone who's used Apple's tablet for getting work done has probably cursed its lack of desktop-equivalent access tools. Apple's new Files app should help compensate for this by giving the iPad a central hub for documents and files. The Files app allows users to pin folders from their cloud service of choice, while also housing files stored locally on the tablet in a single app. It should give the iPad a much-needed productivity boost when compared to Microsoft's Surface tablets, which have long been capable of running full desktop Windows apps.

App performance is about to get faster and smarter

Artificial intelligence is already present in iOS, but Apple is adding tools that make it easier for developers to integrate the technology into their own apps. That should mean faster performance in apps, especially where image recognition is involved. In a demo of the dieting app Lose It on an iPhone running iOS 11, for instance, I noticed that the app was able to quickly identify a bunch of carrots after snapping the photo. Or take apartment hunting app PadMapper: When creating a rental listing, the app uses image recognition to help choose the best cover photo, and it'll automatically list amenities it spots in the image, like a dishwasher or washer and dryer. It's one of those subtle-but-potentially-game-changing things that could significantly improve app efficiency and accuracy if developers implement the new technology in clever ways.

Screen recording

If the 'Screenshots' album in your Photos app is constantly filled with thousands of WhatsApp conversations, memes and funny Instagram photos to send to your mates, you might be excited to know that there's a new, snazzier feature coming with iOS 11.

The new software will allow you to do screen recordings - so if you want to show your mum how to change her Facebook settings you can just record a little video and send it to her.

The feature was first uncovered by 20-year-old Faiz Shakir from New York, who had access to a beta version of iOS 11 through Apple's developer program, and shared details of the new function on his Twitter account.

But while screen recording has a range of useful applications, Shakir pointed out that the feature could potentially be used in more sinister ways: "I was shocked because you could be recorded while on FaceTime or Snapchat without your knowing," he said.

New special effects in Messages

With the launch of iOS 10 last year, Apple introduced a range of new "bubble effects" that let you change the way your message appears, to emphasize the tone of what you are saying.

For example, if you want to "say it loud", the text will briefly pop out, shake and appear bigger, and if you want to "say it gently" the text will momentarily shrink inside the text bubble.

Now, with iOS 11, Apple is adding two more effects - a new "Echo" option, which repeats your message in a flurry of text across the screen, and "Spotlight," which shines a beam of light around your message.

There's also now the option to mute conversations within Messages - so if you're stuck in a group chat and are sick of the incessant notifications, you can turn them off.

Just go to the main messages screen, swipe left on the conversation you want to mute and tap on "Hide Alerts". Problem solved.
