4 Features You Can Expect To See In iOS 11

Although Apple’s currently focused on iOS 10 with an iOS 10.3.2 update on the cards for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users, it is likely to shift its focus to eleventh iteration of its mobile operating system thereafter. Rumors about iOS 11 have already begun to heat up with all signs pointing to a beta launch in the early June. Considering Apple’s release protocol, a launch of an early version of iOS 11 can be expected during WWDC 2017 keynote.

If you’re a developer considering apps development for iOS, check out a couple of new features that you can expect in iOS 11 release until the company confirms the news.

1. iCloud Voicemail:
Ever since the voicemail transcription feature was introduced in iOS 10, it has been labeled as beta. The feature transcribes the voicemail messages received by a user and displays it via tapping a button. As BI says: “Apple's proposed solution is both incredibly simple and incredibly clever: People like to leave voicemails (it's often quicker to orally deliver your information than it is to type it in a text message). But they don't like to receive voicemails (it's a lot quicker to read a text than it is to listen to the person talking to you). The new product will also bridge a generation gap: Older users like voicemails. Young people do not.” Currently, the feature doesn’t work well as it is in beta. So, expect it to be a key feature in iOS 11.

2. Improved Maps:
Another possible improvement in iOS 11 could be the Maps app. A Bloomberg report states that Apple is all set to initiate using a fleet of drones to obtain better mapping data in hopes of catching up with the likes of Google. “Apple Inc. plans to use drones and new indoor navigation features to improve its Maps service and catch longtime leader Google, according to people familiar with the matter.

The Cupertino, California-based company is assembling 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, one of the people said.

Apple wants to fly drones around to do things like examine street signs, track changes to roads and monitor if areas are under construction, the person said. The data collected would be sent to Apple teams that rapidly update the Maps app to provide fresh information to users, the person added.” Not only the company wants to precisely capture the street level data but also improve indoor mapping.

3. Souped-up Siri:
Apparently, Apple will improve Siri, the first eponymous virtual assistant for smartphones. The Siri update is expected to have a more natural sounding voice. Apple’s Cambridge-based team is dedicatedly working to make Siri sound more human-like.

4. Group FaceTime:
A lot has been rumored about the group FaceTime feature. However, the ability to make voice calls is the only change that has been made ever since FaceTime was first introduced with iPhone 4. As of now, it only allows one-on-one video calling between users, but the added group calling support in iOS 11 will be an enticing feature.
