iOS 11 Release

iOS 11 includes a host of new features and interface changes, including a new file system with the Files app, a new Dock for iPad, a redesigned Control Center, drag and drop, ARKit – an augmented reality platform, Apple Pay in Messages, a redesigned App Store, improved Siri, and much more.

One of the biggest makeovers in iOS 11 is the control center. In iOS 10 and earlier, the control center only included the basics — toggles for the flashlight, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, camera, calculator, along with brightness adjustments. The new interface, which you still access by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, includes the same toggles, but with the option to add more.

You can now add quick access toggles for Notes, Apple TV Remote, Stopwatch, Text Size, and Wallet, among others. The most helpful of all is the option to add Lower Power Mode, which used to require multiple steps to simply toggle it on. Now, you can swipe up to the control center and click the low battery icon whenever your phone is running low on juice.

But it’s important to note that toggling Bluetooth and Wifi “off” in the Control Center doesn’t fully turn them off, it only disconnects them. Your iPhone will still be able to connect to features like AirDrop, Locations Services, and AirPlay, along with your Apple Watch or Apple Pencil. The only way to completely turn both of them off is by going through the Settings app.

Having useful apps available to you in one swift motion is a huge improvement. Since the feature is new with iOS 11, hopefully future updates will be less restrictive with what you can add. I also would have liked to see some more improved functionality, such as the ability to choose a Wi-Fi network to connect to from the Control Center.
