Every year, Apple unveils the latest version of iOS at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). Apple has scheduled its WWDC 2017 in June. The company is expected to showcase iOS 11 at its next annual developer conference. But many bloggers, app developers and market analysts have already started speculating about the changes Apple would include in the next version of its mobile operating systems. Based on the news stories and blogs posted on various websites, the developers can gather information about the iOS 11 rumors. Each news story or blog further describes the iOS 10 rumors based on information gathered from various sources.
7 notorious features Apple may include in iOS 11
1) iCloud Voicemail
Currently, iCloud Voicemail is in beta. But Apple is expected to officially include iCloud Voicemail in iOS 10. The feature aims to bridge the gap between emails and voicemails. The users can take advantage of iCloud Voicemail to send and receive voicemails more efficiently. At the same time, the feature allows them to read the transcribed message by simply tapping a button. Therefore, the users can now receive messages without reading their voicemail.
2) Improved Maps App
The upcoming version of iOS may come with an updated and redesigned Maps app. Apple is using a fleet of drones to provide the redesigned Maps app with more relevant directions and information to users. It further dramatically improves the map service by using the indoor navigation features. Apple’s team will quickly and efficiently collect a variety of information — if a road is under construction, road changes and street signs — based on the information collected by drones. They will further include the updated information in the Maps app continuously to provide users with more relevant and updated information.
3) New video sharing app
Apple can make it easier for users to share videos by including a new social media app in iOS 10. The social media app will help Apple compete with popular social media platforms like Instagram and Snapchat. In addition to allowing users to record and edit videos, the new video sharing app also allows them to apply filters and drawings to the video clip. The users have the option to share the video clips with their friends through popular social networks. Apple has also included some advanced features in the video sharing app so that users can record, edit and share video clips in less than a minute.
4) dark mode
Apple has already included dark mode in iOS 10. But the users do not have the option to enable dark mode while using iOS 10. iOS 11 allows users to enable dark mode on their iPhones or iPads just like Apple TV.
5) Siri with natural sounding voice
Every new version of iOS comes with an improved Siri. The updated version of Siri helps users perform specific tasks and gather relevant information through voice commands. iOS 11 is expected to come with an updated Siri that sounds more natural. Therefore, the users will feel like interacting with people while using the updated version of Siri. The users can take advantage of the feature to switch seamlessly between light and dark background.
6) Option to check contact availability
Based on a patent application filed by Apple, many analysts believe that iOS 11 will allow users to check whether a contact is available or not. The feature further helps the user to identify the current location of a contact and the operating status of their device. Apple can further simplify checking a contact’s availability by embedding this information in the Contacts app.
7) Group Facetime Calls
Currently, FaceTime supports one-to-one video calls. Therefore, users often use third-party apps like Skype and Facebook Messenger to set up group video chats. Apple is expected to release iOS 11 with an improved version of FaceTime that will allow users to make group video calls. With the updated version of FaceTime, users may be able to call five users at once. But the users still have the option to share their screens with other users.
Many analysts believe that iOS 11 will make about 8% of the apps in the Apple App Store obsolete. Since the upcoming version of iOS will only be available for devices with 64-bit processors and software, more than 200,000 apps will soon be obsolete. As a result, iOS app developers have to rewrite and update a large number of apps to make them relevant and take advantage of the new features of iOS 11. However, the developers won’t be able to confirm the rumors until after Apple iOS at its WWDC in June.
