Smarter Siri and More Updates Arriving with iOS 11

It's not the full implementation of drag and drop on the iPhone, but it's just another clue that Apple has considered what it would be like to bring the feature to its most popular product. Wondering what an iPhone 8 running iOS 11 would look like? Until now, the renders and leaks are of an iPhone 8 without life, showing only a blank screen. The home button is said to be integrated into the display itself, and the only visible signs of a bezel are seen up-top where the iPhone's front camera, earpiece grill and other sensors are located. The software boasts of some exciting new features such as a new Control Center, peer-to-peer payments via Apple Pay, Do No Disturb While Driving, an improved Maps app, a smarter Siri, and revamped Apple Music.

The guys over at iFixit have taken their screwdrivers to Apple's new iPad Pro 10.5, we already know the majority of the specifications on the device. This kind of a setup is supposed to help with 3D as well as Augmented Reality (AR) features. It points out that iPhone 8 will have a large circular charging pad inside of it (earlier leaked in schematics) to support wireless charging.

Folks at iDropNews have released iPhone 8 renders running Apple's new mobile operating system. Some reports have claimed that Apple would relocate the Touch ID to the rear panel. The 21.5-inch model delivers up to three times faster performance and the 27-inch model is up to 50% faster, according to Apple. iMac also comes with a new display that is 43% brighter at 500nits and with support for one billion colors. A developer preview of the new operating system is now available, and a public beta for iOS users is set for release later this month. Using the cameras, processors and motion sensors built into iOS devices, "ARKit allows developers to tap into the latest computer vision technologies to build detailed and compelling virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more".

Apple this week also launched an updated App Store that adds original editorial features, a "Today" tab for daily announcements about new features, and other new tabs for Games, Apps and Updates.
