iOS 11: Siri speaks more naturally and becomes a translator

Siri gets a new voice, the control center and the App Store get a new design and developers, Apple gives a tool for AR apps in hand: At its developer conference WWDC, Apple has presented iOS 11. You will find all important new features and changes here.

Siri speaks more clearly and translates for you

Siri gets a new voice. Apple has significantly improved the pronunciation of the language assistant. In addition, Siri now also displays several results in the search: Chinese, French, German, Spanish and Italian - and also speaks directly in the respective language. In addition, Siri will also need to understand context in the future and require less precise instructions.

Apple understands Siri not only as a language assistant, but as a permanent "dumb servant" in the background, who is constantly learning. So the software remembers about read articles and scans them for new terms, which are later suggested for example in iMessage or to which appropriate messages appear in the news app.

New design for the control center

The control center receives a completely new design with all buttons on one side and additional settings via 3D Touch. The Lockscreen and the Notification Center are now one thing: When you wipe from the Homescreen, you land in the new Lockscreen and can also display older notifications.

The camera app improves Apple's under the hood. The new HEVC codec is designed to enhance the compression of photos and videos, saving storage space. In addition, Apple is giving the Photos app new processing options for live photos and lets you seamlessly change between landscape and portrait format. The app automatically adjusts the images.

App Store with new look

With iOS 11, the App Store has a completely new design: once opened, there is a "Today" view and several tabs, such as "Games" and "Apps". In-app purchases can now be viewed directly on the App Store. For developers exciting: New app versions want Apple to check and release much faster.

An AR tool for developers

Tim Cook has already mentioned several times: Apple sees the future in Augmented Reality and not in Virtual Reality. The first concrete step with iOS 11 follows the vague statements: With ARKit, developers are given a tool to program apps for Augmented Reality. The recognizes among other things via the iPhone camera surfaces, on which objects can be placed.

We can be curious about what applications are created until the release of iOS 11, which allows you to combine reality with virtual objects. Not only does Pokémon GO become more realistic, but you can also place Ikea equipment anywhere or drive Lego vehicles across the living room table.

Updates for iMessage, Maps, CarPlay, HomeKit and Apple Pay

IMessage gets an "App Drawer" in the chat window. Other apps can be accessed and integrated directly from the Messenger. More importantly, however, messages should be linked to iCloud and the messages should be in the cloud and no longer occupy the storage space of the devices.

In the future, Apple Maps will support navigation within shopping centers and airports. Apple Music becomes "social" and displays recommendations and playlists from friends. With Apple Pay, "transfers" between people are possible. Directly via iMessage - but since the payment service in Germany is not yet started, just not yet lied here.

In CarPlay, the "do not disturb while driving" mode disables the bulk of social media communications and automatically sends messages to people who write you. Speakers can be managed under iOS 11 via the HomeKit app and AirPlay 2, or integrated into the Smart Home control.

Other new features of iOS 11 include: An automatic one-hand keyboard input, Facetime Live photos, screen recording, a new Podcast app design, iCloud Family integration with Apple Music, and a share of wireless passwords.

iOS 11 on the iPad

On the iPad iOS 11 gets revised, larger dock. Apple wants to simplify multi-tasking and has therefore also redesigned the multitasking overview on the tablet. In addition, text sections, URLs and much more can be dragged back and forth between apps.

With Files, Apple publishes its first file manager for iOS. It not only scans your local storage on the iPad, but also includes Dropbox, Google Drive and other cloud storage services.

On which devices is iOS 11 running?

Roughly speaking, you can install iOS 11 on all iPhones, iPads, and iPod touch that are released 2013 or later. Older devices do not support 64-bit apps, and iOS 11 provides support for 32-bit. A
