Smarter Siri, More Updates Arriving with iOS 11

11 June, 2017, 09:28 | Author: Archie Newman

While Apple typically launches new iPhones shortly after its iOS updates, this year's phones are expected to be delayed past the usual release date in September.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 13 percent of all fatal distraction-related crashes in 2014 could be attributed to drivers distracted by their cellphones.

In addition, the iPhone screen will also go dark so that apps can't be used while drivers are behind the wheel.

Apple executive Craig Federighi made the announcement Monday at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California.

Users will be able to see Apple Maps, Apple's navigation application, while driving - though they will be unable to input destinations.

iOS 11 introduces a new feature that anyone that has managed to fill up their iPhone's storage will be able to appreciate.

If you want to allow access to your W-Fi network, all you have to do is approve them by tapping the Send Password button. The new "Do Not Disturb" feature will come to the iPhone when iOS 11 arrives this fall, but it can be disabled if users prefer.

Apple appears to be solving this problem in iOS 11.

Moreover, even though Apple built-in some caveats, an iPhone user has other way to bypass the Do Not Disturb While Driving feature and use the smartphone while driving. Other than that, if the iPhone's system detects the car's moving speed using the Wi-Fi antenna, the feature will be switched on. With iOS 11, that part of iOS's settings menu is now known as "iPhone Storage" (presumably, it's called "iPad Storage" on Apple's line of tablets, though we haven't had a chance to verify that fact just yet).

Passengers who are just riding in the vehicle will also be able to disable the safety feature.
