Apple Introduces 'Do Not Disturb While Driving' Feature for iOS 11

Apple Introduces 'Do Not Disturb While Driving' Feature for iOS 11

Plus, there are new productivity features for the iPad, including drag-and-drop capability and a more robust dock.

As a member of the Apple Beta Software Program, you'll then be able to download the latest public beta, as well as subsequent updates, straight from the iOS Software Update. This update will go on iPhone, iPad and even the Car Play.

Though it's the now the latest and greatest version of the operating system, it will stop receiving important security and performance updates from Apple when iOS 11 launches, leaving users potentially vulnerable to bugs and glitches. However, she also looks a little different: Apple has given its voice assistant a new visual interface that surfaces multiple results for your requests, as well as followup questions. The translations will be available in Chinese, French, German, Spanish and Italian, with more languages coming in the next months.

The improved multitasking feature in iOS 11 will transform the iPad, making it it operate much more like a Mac.

When an app developer releases a new update in the App Store, all their lovely reviews disappear in the ether.

Aptly called "Do Not Disturb While Driving", the feature takes over the phone when it is connected to the auto via Bluetooth or cable and when it detects you're in a moving vehicle.

They noted that although screen recording stops when the iOS Camera app is activated, it doesn't do the same with Snapchat.

Another new iOS 11 feature that was unannounced is instant Wi-FI sharing. When an iOS 11 device is in range of your Wi-Fi network and tries to connect, iOS 11 gadgets already connected to the network will display a pop-up card saying that a new device is trying to join it.

While the use of NFC's tag reading mode represents a positive step for Apple users and NFC proponents, the technology's card emulation mode - the one that would enable the iPhone to serve as an identity or security credential - appears to remain off limits for now.

A new operating system, the "most powerful" Apple machine ever created and a totally redesigned App Store? The users can use the received money to make purchases in stores or web, or transfer it to the bank accounts. Apple Pay's peer-to-peer transactions will be available in iOS 11 and watchOS 4.
