Though the big news of the fall has been Apple’s introduction of the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, the latest operating system upgrade for the company is nothing to ignore. Compatible with iPhone 5s, iPad, iPod Touch 6th generation, and all newer devices, iOS11 adds some polish to existing tools:
- Files now allows you to access documents across devices and integrates directly with Dropbox and Box.
- A redesigned App Store features a curated experience that provides original content and news about apps, including trends, how-tos, and more.
- Siri is now capable of translating English to Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Mandarin.
- The new Do Not Disturb function stops notifications while you’re driving.
- Drag and drop is finally available.
- Increased augmented reality capabilities may be on their way as this release also includes the launch of a developer platform for these types of products.
