Let us have a look at what iOS 11 is most probably slated to have in store for us

iOS 11 will Feature a More Versatile Siri

Apple’s AI Vistual assistant Siri, has definitely been one major highlight for all iOS enabled devices and post Siri’s incorporation into the Macbook series in iOS 10, the premise surrounding the development of the program is substantial. iOS 11 is pegged to bring many significant upgrades for Siri. One of these involves making the AI program able to handle, manage and execute instructions for third-party applications. In layman’s terms, Siri can now be used to manage non-apple apps and perform operations via voice control instructions. An incredibly convenient upgrade considering the fact that applications like Whatsapp and Facebook are widely used social platforms. Another major advancement of Siri which might as well be spotted in the iOS 11 is the ability of the assistant to read and reply via text messages. This can pegged to be incredibly user-friendly as not always, voice control questions and replies are apt, especially in social surroundings.

iOS 11 will Bring in Improved Map Application

Apple has reportedly assembled a team of robotics and data-collection experts that will use drones to capture and update map information faster than its existing fleet of camera-and-sensor ladened minivans. With Google maps ruling this particular foray by miles for now, it must take Apple quite a bit of time to come straight into the competition but the advancement steps taken for map incorporation in the iOS 11 might just pay off by miles as well. According to a spokesperson from the company, Apple is planningto fly drones around to do things like examine street signs, track changes to roads and monitor if areas are under construction. The data collected would be sent to Apple teams that rapidly update the Maps app to provide fresh information to users.

Apple has maintained quite a consistent launching timeline when it comes to the iOS version launches and it seems that there is very little chance that deviation from it will occur in the launch of iOS 11 as well. Starting from the iOS 4 to the iOS 8, all these softwares were launched at the WWDC conference in June.
