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.
