Tim Cook at the WWDC announced that iOS 11 is the next-generation of Apple Operating Systems as well as the most advanced and best update till now. There were many rumours before iOS 11 was actually launched on September 19.
Bloggers and market analysts were all into forecasts and plethora of blogs written on how the changes will effect the iPhone users as well as iOS app developers since they have to follow the guidelines issued by every new update while building the apps for iPhone. If the iOS app developers don’t follow the updated guidelines or don’t update the old versions of their apps, their apps may go obsolete with new versions of iOS for iPhone or iPad.
Now, we get straight to the changes introduced in the iOS 11 version. Subtle design changes to interface elements were made within the operating system of Apple. A complete makeover can be seen in the apps like Calculator. Also, Phone has a new look. These are comparatively small changes as compared to the major changes made in the interface of Control Center and Lock Screen.
The Control Center is no longer split into multiple screens. We see a broad range of settings on the Control Center. What’s really impressive is that the Control Center is highly customizable according to which every user can customize it according to their needs.
With 3D touch integration, you don’t need to open the Settings app anymore and can perform similar functions with 3D touch integration. Isn’t it a cool and time-saving feature?
Talking about the Notification Center, it has been merged into the lock screen which may not be a good change for all. Notification Center has been totally dissolved and when you swipe down, all you see is the Lock screen instead of notification center.
As we were able to see Today View with a side swipe, you can still see it and there are no visible changes to this section though the only change you will see is that notification center is gone.
There are a lot more changes in iOS 11 update and after that iOS 11.1 was launched recently on Oct 31.
There are new additions to the emojis in iOS 11.1 and some design changes to emoji symbols. Along with that there is new 3D Touch App Switcher to bring up the multitasking App Switcher interface.
A fix for reachability bug has been introduced that was a serious problem in iOS 11. It was related to WiFi connection.
iOS 11.2 Beta version released:
Apple has launched latest version iOS 11.2 to beta testers and developers.
iOS 11.2 will be released soon and let’s see what’s all new it will bring about. It is certain that whatever Apple brings as new features always affect the iOS developers who have to keep them updated every time Apple launches new version. This is the reason, why you should hire iOS developer after properly checking their knowledge and their intelligence on the recent changes made by the Apple community.
