7 deeply hidden features of iOS 11 which you should know.

iOS 11

As we all know when Apple launches the new version of iOS it is full of new features and not all the features makes headlines. In this guide, we are going to talk about the 7 hidden features of iOS 11.

Create PDF via Safari

Open any webpage on Safari and hit the Share button. Now tap Create PDF. This will quickly let you create a PDF, which is much faster than the older method.

Shut down via Settings

Go to Settings > General and scroll to the bottom. Here you will see a Shut Down button that lets you power down your iOS device. If your power button is broken, this will be very useful. Here’s an easy way to switch on your iPhone if the power button is damaged.

Quickly share Wi-Fi passwords

If you have friends coming over to your home and everyone wants to use the home Wi-Fi network, sharing the password is quite easy with iOS 11. As long as your iOS device is connected to the network and your friend is in the Contacts app, they can get the password simply by bringing their iOS device close to yours. It shows a prompt asking if you want to share the password with the other person’s iOS device. Tap a button and it’s done. This feature works if you have the password stored on a Mac too.

Safari experimental features

For the first time, Apple is allowing you to access certain experimental Safari features on iOS. Head to Settings > Safari > Advanced > Experimental Features. Here you can enable a bunch of features such as Link Preload, which could speed up the browsing experience. That said, most people won’t understand what these features do, and it’s best to avoid enabling things you don’t understand.

Safari prevents ads from following you

Safari has a new feature called Prevent cross-site tracking which stops advertisers from tracking you across the Web. It deletes certain cookies to prevent this and naturally, ad companies hate it.

New iMessage effects

There are two new effects for iMessage — Spotlight, and Echo. Spotlight puts your message in the spotlight, while echo just repeats the text on screen repeatedly. Just follow the steps in this guide if you’re not sure how to send messages with effects.

Dark mode

iOS 11 has a dark mode. Well, sort of. Open Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations > and switch on Smart Invert. This will enable a system-wide dark mode, but the problem is that it makes some apps unusable. Apps that already have a dark mode look pretty terrible if you enable Invert Colours, and it also messes up colors in many games we tested. It’s great if you just stick to Apple apps such as Mail, Safari, and Apple Music.
