IOS 11 user interface review: a fresh change in software

Apple iOS 11 Mail app bug hits business users hard

Apple has made changes in iOS 11 that push its devices towards Wi-Fi and Bluetooth being enabled by default, which may make users more vulnerable to attacks. So, Apple has added a feature that allows you to automatically share your Wi-Fi password with the tap of one button.

Now in order to really switch off the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi you will have to go to the settings menu and switch them off yourself.

Screen recording is easy to use, but you'll need to add it to Control Center first before you can access it.

Good news Uber users: If you have an iPhone, you can now limit the company's ability to keep tabs on your whereabouts.

THE WORLD'S favourite toy phone, the Fisher Price... sorry, Apple iPhone has just received an upgrade to its latest and greatest operating system yet, iOS 11. It only disconnects the iPhone/iPad from any connected devices or networks.

And, yes, if you record a Snapchat video with this feature it does notify your Snapchat friend that you've taken a screenshot.

"So you must always be prepared to run with when-in-use authorization", Apple says on its developer site.

Apple iOS 11 is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch to download. iOS 11 is Apple's newest software update.

The main controls for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on Apple's newly launched iOS 11 software can not actually be used to turn those features off. In the meantime, Outlook's dedicated app for iOS still seems to be working, and the email service can still be accessed on the web using Safari or another browser.

All you have to do is tap the iPhone's power button five times fast, and then it will lock down the phone and it will bring up a shortcut to contact the police with a swipe of your finger. Namely, you'll likely want to trim the few seconds at the beginning and end where you're navigating to and from Control Center.

If the beta version was able to be compromised, it's safe to assume that a fully-developed iOS 11 jailbreak could be released these days as well. When I asked Siri to tell me about tennis legend Billie Jean King, it went to Wikipedia, and instead of saying, "Here's what I found on the Web", it actually read me the top two paragraphs, a vast improvement over the old way of just sending me a link.
