I’m going to get it out there. As always, no matter what Apple do, people will complain about the changes they make, and quite frankly, there’s nothing you can do about it. People expected, for some reason, that iOS 11 would undergo a major redesign and yesterday during WWDC, that didn’t happen. There are a few new UI elements in iOS 11 but as a whole, it looks, largely, the same as its predecessor, iOS 10. However, with major updates, Apple always add small changes and tweak things here and there and that’s why I think, when it’s released to the public, iOS 11 is going to be a very good update. I’ve been running iOS 11 beta 1 for 24 hours now and of course the battery life sucks and it feels very sluggish but it’s manageable. In this post I talk about some issues that have remained in iOS for a very long time but thanks to iOS 11, are no longer there.
It’s that time of the year ago, beta season has sprung! Yesterday at WWDC, Apple unveiled all new versions of iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS. In this post I am focussing on iOS 11 and, with beta 1, as always, will start off listing the bugs first and then the new features. Again, a word of warning, do not install this on your primary device and if you can’t resist, ensure you have a backup first.
So we’re less than one month away from WWDC, arguably the biggest event of the year. Apple will show off new versions of iOS, macOS, watchOS and tvOS and we might even see new hardware this year but in this post I focus on iOS and what I want to see in iOS 11.
