Apple's iOS 11 is giving up more of its secrets, with developers discovering plans for a new "Core NFC" feature that was not revealed during the company's WWDC keynote earlier this week. This means users now have the option to blast high-quality music files straight from their iPads and iPhones.
The iPhone screen will be locked to prevent drivers from using other apps while behind the wheel.
After all, one of the main reasons Apple is launching Files is to give iPad owners more flexibility to use their tablets as improvised laptop stand-ins. If the password is shared, it will immediately be filled on the iPhone.
- A new feature called Do Not Disturb While Driving will disable notifications while driving, and will automatically reply to messages tell the sender that you're driving.
App switching between apps on the iPad and the iPhone
- Siri now a more natural tone of voice than before, and it can be used for translations from English.
The bittersweet news is that Apple's new iOS 11 software has revamped the "Invert Colors" feature so that it's now a "Smart Invert" that darkens the color scheme of the UI without inverting the colors on things like photos and app icons. iOS 11 beta 1 was then released, and millions of developers (and non-developers) have likely installed it by now.
The new policy will come into effect from September, and will accompany iOS 11's roll out.
Apple this week also launched an updated App Store that adds original editorial features, a "Today" tab for daily announcements about new features, and other new tabs for Games, Apps and Updates. Although, the autofill feature is a great feature to talk about and Android will also get the feature in its next iteration.
The option may be useful to business users by saving the time it would take to manually go through and delete apps to increase storage, which can be a pain, especially if you need to download something for work quickly and do not have the space.
