Best iOS 11 Features and Compatible Devices

Prayers in the form of anticipation, chants in the form of expectations, all for the massive festival that falls in September every year, when Apple announces its new devices and software updates. This year, Apple left iOS users in a lavish paradise. The most recent update iOS 11 not just fixes bugs of the previous versions but brings home a brand new feel that only iOS users have the luxury to delve into it.

We bring you the best 8 features of iOS 11 and nurture you to make the best out of it. In addition to that, we also educate you with the list of devices on which the latest version of iOS can be installed.

Cool New iOS 11 Features

Control center: –

Now you can customize control center, which means you have all the liberty in the world to decide what appears on the control center. Ooh wait..! stay over the moon.!

Go to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls to play with the coolest upgrade to control center. Place the most important and frequently changed settings on the panel that is just one swipe away. We say it’s minimalistic and the ability to swiftly add new items to host more items is just a cake walk.

Drag & Drop: –

This one is a killer. Operating iPad is no more a rocket science, and Apple does it in style by incorporating drag and drop feature in iOS11. The coolest feature is fantastic and prolific.

You just have to tap on the content ( URLs, images, videos, documents) you want to play with and in the split view mode, drag the content over to the app you want to throw in and just lift your finger. That’s, is it? The mission is accomplished. This works exactly the way how you drag and drop icons on the home screen.

Smarter Apple Maps:-

Now you can bid adieu to google maps on your iOS device. With the addition of new features like the layout of malls, airport maps with structured plan and crystal clear directories, life becomes easier. The on-screen speed indicator serves as a lifeline, reminding that your closed ones are waiting for you at home.

The navigation has got a massive update in the form of lane guidance only to guide you for the next turn. The much-required add-on to maps is, “don’t disturb while driving” tool, which means the screen goes off and all the incoming notifications are temporarily blocked.

Sexier App Store:-

A moment of silence for the old messy and naked App Store look. The brand new App Store looks like a downtown Milan city center. The “Today” tab is exclusively for geeks, who try out every app in the store. It also keeps you abreast of the newest apps in the market.

The product pages for each and every app have been zero sized to accommodate the most required information about the app. And the right to grant access to download takes a new turn. A notification pops up from the bottom after which fingerprint recognition happens.

File Manager: –

This is what iOS users can be proud of. For those who have been carrying a strong resentment deep inside their heart now can proudly flip their collars back. The file management mechanism in iOS11 is a masterpiece.

The system allows you to access the most recent files, search, of course of your choice – grid or list. The best part is, it is linked with cloud services Viz. iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive.

Editing Screen Shots:- 

This is my favorite. Every time I captured a screen, I had to edit it by visiting photos and sometimes I would just forget it. But the brand new editing feature of screenshots lets you edit the captured screen the moment you do it. Life becomes comfortable.

A huge sigh of relief. Before you save the screenshot, you can enhance the attributes of the image for a better detailing and can save it.

Siri is yours:- 

The new Siri is smarter, cuter and simpler. iOS 11 lets its loyal users ask Siri for translations, which means you can do just more than mere talk! Visit settings and tap on general option. Look out for accessibility and then Siri. Turn on type to Siri. You can input the text you want to ask Siri.


The plans of scrapping Evernote is quite allusive with the recent modification of Notes in iOS11. The new Notes lets you search for handwritten notes, that are scanned or written by apple pencil.

The interesting part is, iOS 11 has a built-in scanner. And other additions to the notes come in the form of monospaces text, ability to change the paper look and other text editing options.
