Apple’s new iOS 11 operating system is going to offer iPhone users some great new features. Here are some of the ones that stand out the most.
Following is a transcript of the video:
So I’ve been using iOS 11 for 5 days now, and this is what I think about it.
These are major changes that you’re going to notice right away. So we start with Control Center so let me show you now. So this is what iOS 11 looks like. You can see that they have totally rearranged it and there’s all sorts of new options you can do here. So, for instance, I can go directly to an alarm. You don’t have to go through the timer’s button anymore. And all of this is totally customisable.
Another feature that you’re going to notice right away is Files. Your iPhone doesn’t have files the same way you know your Windows PC or your Mac does. Now it does.
Another thing that you’re going to notice is that Siri has a new voice and Siri has picked up a lot of new tricks. I’m going to show you one of my favourite new tricks. So — let’s go. Hey Siri — how do you say “I love to dance” in Spanish? Me encanta bailar. Hey Siri — how do you say “I want to buy it” in Italian? Lo voglio comprare. So obviously this is the kind of feature that can be extremely helpful when you’re travelling or trying to communicate with people who speak different languages than you.
Another feature that you’re going to notice right away is the App Store has been totally changed. You know? Now Apple will point you to apps that they think are really special. For instance, here’s a daily list and they’re selected by editors at Apple.
Now we’re going to go over personally what I think is my favourite new feature which is there is a one-handed keyboard. So this is the normal iPhone keyboard, but you can pick either a left-handed keyboard or, for me, the right-handed keyboard. I can see people just using this as kind of the default.
Finally, Apple has totally changed the way screenshots work in iOS 11. Now, instead of just saving it to your Camera Roll, it puts it in the corner. So I’m going to open it up, and I’m going to pick a tool, and you can draw on your screenshot and share it with someone.
The new iOS is definitely worth updating to. It comes out this fall. It really improves a lot of the small day-to-day uses of your phone and it may solve problems that you have wanted to be solved for a long time. So, I definitely recommend updating as soon as you can.
