WOG Review: Apple’s iOS 11

After the release of iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Apple’s iOS 11 has finally been released to the public last September 19. iOS 11 has first been introduced on June 5, 2017 at the Worldwide Developers Conference, San Jose, California.

This might be a great news to all the iPhone and iPad users. Unfortunately, not all Apple devices are supported by the new operating system. The only devices that are capable of running iOS 11 are from iPhone 7 to iPhone 5s and the 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2nd generation) to iPad mini 2.

But before you upgrade your Apple gadgets to iOS 11, you might want to know about its features first.

iOS 11’s New Features

iOS 11 has a major design change, some new app features, and better interface for the iPad. iOS 11 will let you customize the Control Center: giving you the ability to add and delete controls, but sorry to say, there is no option to quickly access specific Wi-Fi networks.

You can also easily save space on your phone’s storage. iOS 11 lets you offload unused apps and retain its data so you can still be able to reinstall them whenever you want.

Curious if your partner is viewing another girl’s Facebook profile? Or do you have an incredible thumb-drumming talent in GarageBand and you want to show it off? You can now record them using the Screen Recording feature. Simply add this to your Control Center section and you are good to go.

Upon starting a screen recording, you will get a countdown first and the status bar will go red. If you are done recording, simply tap the bar and press Stop. The video can also be edited and trimmed.

As for Siri, the intelligent personal assistant of Apple Inc., she is now more intelligent and has a more natural voice. She can also now translate English into different languages such as Spanish and Chinese.

Typing in your iPad and iPhone is now a lot easier with its one-hand keyboard for iPhone and the “Flick” option for iPad. Sometimes, you have a whole hard copy of document, but you are too lazy to type and copy it. Worry no more because now, Apple has a “Scan Document” feature to be installed in your phone. It also comes hand in hand with the You can also easily pin notes on Note app, which now allows you to pin notes.

iOS 11 is now also equipping users with safety with its “Do Not Disturb While Driving” feature. This will automatically be activated when your phone detects the acceleration of a vehicle, even if you’re just a car passenger. This will mute incoming calls, and text messages, but there is an option for you to send a text to your contacts to let them know that you are driving.

iOS 11 Unsupported Apps

Upgrading your Apple devices is definitely a good idea with all these new features. However, there are some apps that won’t work on iOS 11, since this new update is the final switch for Apple from 32-bit apps to 64-bit apps. This means that if you haven’t updated your apps to their latest versions, then they will definitely won’t work on iOS 11.

But, Apple has made it easier for you. All you have to do is to go to Settings, tap the General button and go to the About page. From there, you will see the Applications on your iPhone that need to be updated. For these apps to work on iOS 11, update them into its latest version before upgrading your device to iOS 11.

iOS 11 Problems

However, many Apple users who already upgraded their devices are complaining about it. Most of them are experiencing issues like battery problems, crashing apps, and minor bugs.

According to Reddit, the users are complaining that their phones are getting stuck on apps, and hard reset is the only thing that will make the phone work again. Some of the affected apps are Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, and Messenger.

The users have their own ways on fixing these problems. Some did “Reset All Settings” while others just restored their devices and set it up as new.

On a Forbes report, the upgrade for iOS 11 lasts for only 96 minutes, much shorter than the previous iOS update of 240 minutes.

Apple still has no feedback regarding the problems encountered by the new iOS 11 users.
