Apple iOS 11 Is Going to Be One of Apple’s Best OS Ever

by Dustin Kuhn on / Technology News

There are several reports spilling in about Apple next iOS 11, and we are excited about the several things that we have been hearing surrounding the OS. As far as speculations go, there is news that the iOS 11 will be bringing in several features that fans have been wanting for several years. This has prompted many people to think that Apple’s next is going to be the one of Apple’s best operating system to have been released till now. There are several reasons to believe in this and this post, that is exactly what we are going to discuss.

Apple first iPhone was rolled out in the year 2007 and along with it the first iOS. Developed exclusively for Apple products, the OS was later made available in other Apple devices – the iPad and iPod Touch. Apple’s operating system is the second most popular mobile operating system in the world after Android, and against Android, iPad tablet is the second most popular OS by sales. By January 2017, Apple’s App Store has over 2.2 million iOS application, and out of them, 1 million are native for iPads. Altogether, the mobile applications have been downloaded for over 130 million times which is huge, to say the least.

Based on the compatibility of the current OS, we are speculating that the iOS 11 will be compatible with the following Apple devices: iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 12.9-inch, iPad mini 4, iPad Air 1, as well as iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7 Plus, iPad Mini 3, and, iPod touch (6th generation), iPhone 7. As you may have noted that of the iPhone 5 line, only the iPhone 5s is likely to be compatible with the upcoming Apple OS which is iOS 11.

Now getting down to the things that we expect from the iOS 11, the new OS is supposed to be bringing in two of the most in-demand features right now. There are reports suggesting that the OS will be sporting a dark mode and a smarter Siri. Speaking of the dark mode, that is something that Apple loyalist have been asking for years. The beta version of iOS 10 had a dark mode that made people believe that the version would at least introduce the dark mode on Siri. But things didn’t turn out that way, unfortunately. But all hopes are not lost because the iOS 11 Beta will supposedly come with a dark mode this September, which is very exciting, to say the least.

One of the things that have got us really excited is the possibility of a faster Siri because that is something that is really needed. Especially, since Samsung is bringing Bixby, Apple needs to step up its game in the Artificial Intelligence department. Although these are just speculations, we think that these might just be right that’s because this year marks the 10th anniversary of the iPhone so it is only expected that both the iPhone and iOS launching this year will be special and memorable.

Fifa 18 A wishlist of what we want to see

by Dustin Kuhn on / Gaming

While FIFA 17 is yet to leave store counters as it launched only in September last year, we have already been zeroing in on the news that the next instalment in the popular gaming franchise will feature. FIFA 17 is said to be the most popular game in the entire franchise and will be a hard act to beat. We, however, believe that the biggest room in the world is the room for improvement. A list of features we would like to see in the new game will be highly instructive at this moment. We have not ranked or arranged this wishlist in any manner of preference. Fifa 18 Wishlist is important at this point.

1. Bring better diversity in the commentary to the new game. The preceding game featured expert commentary from the likes of Martin Tyler, Alan Smith, Alan McInally, who provides all in-game score updates, Geoff Shreeves, who provides injury reports and the excellent Mike West who provides detailed reports on major leagues. However, the new game will be the winner if expert commentators from various regions from all over the world will voice the game. India, for example, is hardly represented by any commentators. We expect that FIFA 18 will also improve upon this matter.

Fifa 18 Game Wishlist

2. Improved goalkeeping AI. One of the pet gripes of all FIFA fans is that the goalkeeping functions of the game are slow, inorganic and often unwieldy. The AI controlling the goalkeeping needs an upgrade very badly. Fans and players often state that the keeper jumps to the opposite end of the direction they need to go. A better AI controlling the functions will be extremely user-friendly.

3. Increased attention to women’s football. The world of women’s football is exploding with new talent, more players and more crowds attending matches. In order to tap into this latent market, EA must improve the opportunities available in the game. The latest iteration does not highlight the women’s game and is basically just hidden away. More options for the enormously popular women’s game will be much appreciated.

4. Improvements in penalty modes. The newest game has some glitches when it comes to direction finding. The better the penalty-taking feature, the better the game will be. It is very difficult to find the corner of the goal every time which becomes even truer when the game is played in multiplayer where the direction indicator is hidden for obvious reasons. 

5. Fixed graphics. We do understand that the introduction of the Frostbite engine does seem as one of the reasons the game is facing some problems Remember that the crowds and the players often seem very tacky in the existing graphics.  Some of the player’s features also look unlike their real-life counterparts. These features have to be improved. The blurry and low-resolution parts of the graphics simply need to go. Besides, the crowds also need to be fixed to make the online gaming environs seem more organic and wholesome.
