Recently, Apple seeded the seventh developer beta for iOS 11, and, with it, even more details about the upcoming HomePod smart speaker have been revealed.
Another week, another minor iOS 11 beta update. This week, Apple has pushed out Developer Beta 7. This is the third beta to release on a weekly cycle. We’re not 2-3 weeks away from the final release. So maybe we have one more beta and a GM release ahead of us. Usually, by Beta 7, Apple has worked out all the kinks. And that’s evident from this release. The changes in this release are very minor.
A couple of videos buried deep in iOS 11 beta image has been discovered by developer Gilherme Rambo which show a prototype Control Center functionality that was apparently scrapped by Apple.
Apple has just released the seventh beta of iOS 11 which comes with a number of bug fixes and improvements. This release comes just a week after the sixth beta version of iOS 11 was rolled out to registered developers, which contained a number of notable UI changes such as new app icons for the App Store, Reminders, and Maps app.
Apple has seeded the seventh beta version of iOS 11 to developers for testing. Apple had released the first beta version just after the WWDC keynote a little over two weeks ago where it gave us a sneak peek of the next major software update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
When it comes to storage space (or lack there of) on iPhones, Apple seems to have finally woken up. The first step was upgrading the lowest tier to 32 GB. Now, with iOS 11, Apple is bringing not one but 5 features that will either help you manage your storage space or automatically reduce the storage space required on your iPhone. Here’s what they are.
In iOS 11, Apple has simultaneously taken steps to block auto playing videos in Safari, while adding auto playing videos in their own App Store. I still can’t get over the irony of it all. But thankfully, if you don’t want to bombard with an autoplay video of a new game every time you scroll through the App Store, there’s a way to disable this feature.
Recently, YouTuber EverythingApplePro uploaded a video showing how a $500 piece of hardware could be used to bypass the passcode protection lock on any iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It also worked on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, though only under certain scenarios.
Siri has primarily been a voice based assistant. While other assistants like Microsoft’s Cortana and Google Assistant have the ability to text to the assistant, Siri remained voice only. iOS 11 finally adds the ability to type to Siri. This will come in really handy when you’re in a position where you can’t talk out loud to your virtual personal assistant.
