iOS 11

The iOS 11 is an operating system that was designed, developed especially for iPhone and iPad by Apple from 2017 to 2018. The system has been released on September 19, 2017, and was preinstalled on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, and iPad 6th Generation. This software gets the last update (11.4.1) on July 9, 2018, and has been replaced by a newer version of iOS 12.

The new iOS 11 features the lock screen and Notification Center were combined, allowing all notifications to be displayed directly on the lock screen. The various pages of the Control Center were unified, gaining custom settings and the ability to 3D Touch icons for more options.

The App Store received a visual overhaul to focus on editorial content and daily highlights. A “Files” file manager app allowed direct access to files stored locally and in cloud services. 

Siri was updated to translate between languages and use a privacy-minded “on-device learning” technique to better understand a user’s interests and offer suggestions. The camera had new settings for improved portrait-mode photos and utilized new encoding technologies to reduce file sizes on newer devices.

In a later release, Messages was integrated with iCloud to better synchronize messages across iOS and macOS devices. A previous point release also added support for person-to-person Apple Pay payments. The operating system also introduced the ability to record the screen, limited forms of drag-and-drop functionality, and support for augmented reality.

Certain new features appeared only on iPad, including an always-accessible application dock, cross-app drag-and-drop, and a new user interface to show multiple apps at once.

Today iOS 11 is 6 years old!
