Developers Will Have Access To NFC On iPhone In iOS 11

iPad Pro: What you need to know about the all-new 10.5-inch model iOS 11 will make older generation iPhones and iPads obsolete
Heather Davidson | 27 June, 2017, 02:27

Combined with powerful new iPad features in iOS 11 coming this fall, like the all-new Files app, customizable Dock, improved multitasking and deeper integration of Apple Pencil, iPad Pro.

Of the new features, the Do Not Disturb while driving features has been designed "to help users stay more focused on the road". Wasn't that what they promised all alone, especially with the iPad Pro?

According to Business Insider, the operating system will assume you are driving if your mobile device connects to the car's Bluetooth system.

iOS 11 will only work on 64-bit devices, meaning that older Apple products will be rendered them obsolete.

The news is the result of Apple's decision to end support for devices and apps using 32-bit processors. It took three years for Apple to launch this new device.

Since June 2015, any newly created apps have been required to support 64-bit processing, so any that have been updated during this period should not be affected by the changes.

UK finds 34 high-rise apartment buildings with unsafe siding
Frank notes that officials estimate it will take three to four weeks to make the buildings safe. But 83 households had refused to leave by Saturday morning.

This is clearly the most requested feature among vocal iPhone users on social networks and on forums like Reddit.

On the software front, Apple announced the details of two operating system updates - iOS 11 and MacOS High Sierra, as well as changes to the Apple Watch with watchOS 4.

iOS 11 is out for developers now, with a final release expected in September.

This isn't a surprise; developers have had almost two years to update their apps to comply with the newest standards. Apple does offer 5 GB worth of free cloud space but that is really peanuts to say, someone who loves photography.

The iOS 11 update will reportedly include a augmented reality feature for the first time, and voice assistant Siri has been upgraded to allow users to choose from a male or female person, The Guardian reported.
