Apple WWDC 2017: The 5 Biggest Announcements

Apple's next update will include a possible solution to that problem: it will automatically block notifications when your phone thinks you are behind the wheel. The iOS 11 update is a giant step for the iPhone and a monumental leap for the iPad, according to Apple. While the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature was all of the talk of iOS 11, there were quite a few other features and functions that Apple talked about for the upcoming iOS. And as usual, Apple neglected to show off what any of these minor, hidden features were.

Apple Maps has also been upgraded with iOS 11, and will now offer better in vehicle navigation.

The iPhone 8 is certainly one of the most-awaited smartphones this year, even more than the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus. If you are not driving, then you can disable the mode with one touch. All the keys will be smoothed over to one side so you can type with one hand. However, if you want it before everyone else, you can sign up for Apple's beta program and download iOS 11 right now.

Now Apple is preparing to roll out a new software update which looks set to make the iPad the full-featured, super powerful computer it always seemed destined to become. Scrolling through a page feels less floaty, with a less noticeable blur in text as you race by and a more immediate clarity when you stop. If you choose not to rate an app and decline the prompt instead, iOS will note your response. This is great for those of us who feel like a tool speaking to Siri in public places.

Users have the option of sending an auto reply to contacts listed in "Favorites" to let them know they are driving and cannot respond while the vehicle is moving.

Control Center Changes- We thought if we were talking about iOS 11 details, we would mention the Control Center.

The new functionality promises to save you the hassle of scouring your home for the password to your home Wi-Fi router.

HomePod will change your life forever Apple's biggest WWDC 2017 reveal was the much predicted launch of a smart home assistant called HomePod later this year, but it won't be available in Ireland until early 2018 - unless you drive to the Apple store in Belfast when it goes on sale there in December.

Now, I've no doubt that the tech press will work hard to raise awareness of all the new features in iOS 11, but there are plenty of people out there who have no interest in the technology they own beyond using it, and will never come across this information.

A report published by iDrop News gives us our first look at the iPhone X running the recently announced Apple iOS 11. But it turns out that the feature could be just as useful even on the iPhone.

FLAC, or Free Lossless Audio Codec, is an audio codec hardcore music geeks love. A new Files app finally lets you access documents using a variety of services such as iCloud, Dropbox, Microsoft OneDrive, Box and others. In iOS devices the NFC chip is how Apple Pay is powered at contactless terminals.

Many use their iPhone as an everyday camera.
