Apple's iOS 11 Mobile Operating System

Apple unveiled their new flagship operating system, iOS 11, last week during its Worldwide Developers Conference, and it features a number of small but significant changes.

Apple released their mobile payment and digital wallet system, Apple Pay, in 2014. Users can use their iPhone or Apple Watch as a payment method anywhere that accepts contactless, as well as online. With iOS 11, Apple is beefing up the service with the addition of a payments service that allows users to send payments to each other, much like the third-party app Venmo. The new service lets users send money to each other through the Messages app, authenticated using their fingerprint or passcode.

When you take an iPhone out of the box, it comes pre-loaded with a number of apps – calculator, stocks, weather, Newsstand and more. For years, people have been requesting the ability to remove apps that they don’t use, as currently, they can’t be uninstalled like other apps. With iOS 10, Apple made a small concession, allowing users to hide these apps from view, but they’d still be installed to your device, taking up ever-valuable memory. With iOS 11, you can now remove these apps from yur device’s storage. The only thing that your device will retain is data related to the app if it ever needs to be accessed again.

The iPad Pro, aimed as a bridge between a tablet and laptop, was released by Apple in 2015. With iOS 11, they’re bringing a host of changes that aim to make it even more of a laptop replacement. The most striking perhaps the brand new app dock, that is incredibly Mac-like. There’s also expanded split-screen capabilities, and the ability to drag and drop content in between apps. Apple have also made it easier to annotate documents with the Apple Pencil, and the expanded Control Centre gves users a more Mac-esque view of their documents and apps.

Another notable change that Apple are making with iOS 11 is in the Camera app. The app has been updated to support high-efficiency video coding (HEVC), which shrinks photo and video files down, saving on memory, but not compromising on quality. In addition to this, your photos and videos will increase in quality, and have better low-light performance, too.
