My thoughts on iOS 11

So I’ve been using iOS 11 for a few hours now and I have to say, it’s a big step for Apple to make some of these changes. There is one thing I wish the new iOS still had and that was the 3D Touch App Switcher / Multiview. I honestly used that way too much. With that aside though, these are a few of my favorite features in iOS 11:

  • The new control center
  • AR (augmented reality)
  • New HEIC codec for photos / video
  • Siri Improvements
  • Screenshot tool
  • New notification layout
  • No titles for apps on the dock
  • QR code scanner built-in to camera app
  • Files app (One of my fav’s)
  • New animations / logos for apps make the experience more pleasing
  • Drag and drop

These are my favorite changes so far with my experience with the update. My opinion might change as new updates are rolled out and I have more time to play with all of it but as of right now the new version of iOS is (so far) big free for me and a great upgrade! I still do recommend waiting a week or two until iOS 11.1 comes out so Apple has a chance to fix any major bugs, etc!
