Apple enters the speaker market

What new features does iOS 11 have?

It will also come equipped with Apple's much loved personal assistant, Siri.

There have been numerous updates throughout the year, but now it's time for iOS 11 to become available. In addition, Apple's tvOS and watchOS received minor updates. Siri will leverage the same AI learnings and capabilities to work on the HomePod smart speaker.

On-device learning will be more proactive and offer suggestions based upon your usage of Messages, Safari, News and Mail. You can also tell Siri you like a certain song, and it'll remember your tastes.

There will also be a new Translation feature, which will support Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish to start with, but will get bigger as time goes on. It looks like the tech giant is now finally going to add one of the most demanded features for many digital assistants.

The service, which will launch first in the US this fall, will put Apple Pay in direct competition with PayPal's Venmo, a leader in the growing peer-to-peer payments market. Money can then be transferred into a nominated bank account or used to pay for apps and good online. The dedicated recent files section gives you access to your recent files from all your iOS devices including the files within apps. Do you foresee yourself using this functions? Meantime, while the newly-announced $349 Siri-controlled HomePod speaker isn't coming until December, the new AirPlay 2 feature in iOS 11, will let you control Apple TV and third party speakers in multiple rooms around the house, using Control Center, the Home app or Siri.

With the next version of the iOS system for mobile devices, messages will sync in the cloud.

Speaking onstage yesterday at the event in San Jose, California, Cook said that Amazon will join the content line-up of its new TV app, which it unveiled in October. This includes sharing through multiple services including Apple Pay.

So as we await the new system's appearance sometime later this year, here's 11 of the best features in iOS 11. A notification will also be pushed, which users can dismiss in case if they are riding as a passenger.

Apple made a major fintech play that shouldn't be underestimated.

iOS 11 also brings another key implementation - Apple Pay integration in iMessage. Apple said that hundreds of millions of iPhones and iPads will be able to run apps created with ARkit platform.

The Files app keeps all your files in one place, irrespective of wherever they are stored. Additional controls like playlist control and volume control has also been enabled in the improved Control Center. The HEIF file format reduces the file size of every photo taken with iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
