iOS 11 is expected to be the operating system that will launch alongside the iPhone 7S and the iPhone 7S Plus and we’re extremely excited to find out more about the various iOS 11 features that will come with these two devices. So far we know very little about what iOS 11 could include but we will be speculating about some possible features below.
The features we’ve listed below could quite well be on iOS 11, but do take our information with a pinch of salt; whilst interesting, it’s not 100% confirmed as fact at this point. To this point, there is little doubt that Apple Inc will be packing in the new operating system in the 2017 launch of the iPhone 7s, and it’s certain there will be some amazing new features as detailed below.
More Security in iOS 11
The first of many iOS 11 features that will make the headlines could possibly be security related. Whilst we’re definitely going to get some security improvements on iOS 11, it’s the nature of these improvements that get our interest. On top of making it hard for malicious activity to break into the App Store, we may say goodbye to jailbreaking forever. Apple are definitely increasing their OS security and as a result iOS 11 could be the first iOS update that is impossible to jailbreak.
Taking iCloud Further
iCloud is Apple’s route towards a connected everything and there is a lot of room for improvement in iOS 11’s iCloud. Some changes in iCloud on iOS 11 could include iCloud messaging or voicemails. iCloud could also store more user data, which could help to improve a user’s experience. Some data could be personalized and Siri could start to learn more about a user’s behavior.
If this becomes a thing, a connected friends feature on iOS 11 would mean that iPhone 7S owners would be able to see details about where their friends are and what they are up to in real time. There would have to be some privacy settings in place to ensure that iOS 11 users would only show their position and activity when they wanted, but this could open up a lot of opportunity and convenience for social activity in the real world.
