Apple's latest iOS update will render older iPhones, iPads obsolete

Apple's latest iOS update will render older iPhones, iPads obsolete

Users will now be easier to text and use technology True Tone, with reflective. A faster screen refresh rate - up to 120Hz - will make games and video look smoother than ever. And you can drag and drop items - photos, hyperlinks, whatever - between apps, just like on a "proper" laptop. Apple argues that this will let it get more out of its devices and software which, in the long term, will benefit all users.

The updated iPads are available for sale now, but won't ship until next week. The WiFi models start at Rs 52,900 for 64GB storage variant. The 12.9-inch one, starting at $799, comes with a $50 gift card. "However, the Pro's best accessories are still sold separately: "the Apple Pencil costs $99, while the Smart Keyboard costs $159 for the 10.5" version or $169 for the 12.9" version. So, if you delete a conversation bubble on an iPad, it will also disappear on your other devices, and free up iMessage storage space.

While many software updates have introduced subtle design changes over time, iOS 11 will completely overhaul the way you use your device and will render the popular iPhone 5 and 5C devices obsolete.

Slated for a fall release, Apple iOS 11 is set to include a new "Do Not Disturb While Driving" feature that will limit drivers' access to their phones.

The QuickType keyboard will have letters, symbols, punctuation marks and numbers on the same keyboard to eliminate toggling between keyboards.

A file manager is another feature that feels well overdue.

Particularly on iPad, the Files app could be perceived as bringing a bit of a Mac feel to Apple's handheld device while also addressing the needs of power users who have been calling out for such functionality.

Dragging files onto an email to create an attachment is cool, but you've been able to do that on the Surface or any PC with a touch screen for a while.

The "Do Not Disturb While Driving", which is expected to roll out later this year, will block any messages from the iPhone or iPad with an updated iOS 11. Apple plans to transform Siri into a more proactive and reliable voice assistant.
