The Coolest New iOS 11 Features You Didn't Know About(2)
- Jun 08, 2017 -

After check the previous article, here is the rest new features on IOS 11.

Check here:

14. You Can Scan QR Codes in the Camera App

Say goodbye to all of your QR code apps, because you don't need them anymore. Apple built a QR code scanner right into the Camera app, 

so all you have to do is point your camera at a QR code and it will prompt you with what to do next, 

whether it's opening up a link in Safari, adding a number to your contacts, or joining a Wi-Fi network.

15. There Are New Formats for Pics & Videos

Previously, the Camera app would shoot pictures in JPEG and videos in H.264. 

Well, in iOS 11, Apple has bumped that up to compression formats that can save you twice as much space (up to two times better compression). 

The new HEIF (High Efficiency Image Format) will take the place of the old JPEG files, while videos will be using the H.265 video coding format. 

Of course, you can disable this in the Camera settings if you want.

16. You Can Select a Still Image for Live Photos

Previously, the only way to select the still image you wanted to use for Live Photos was to use a third-party app like Google's Motion Stills app. 

It was a big deal, since sending a Live Photo to a friend on Android wouldn't show what you actually wanted to show. 

Now, Apple has fixed this. Just tap on the Edit icon at the bottom, then drag the cover photo frame on the slider to wherever you want. 

Tap on "Make Key Photo" to set it, then "Done" to finalize.


17. You Can Also Trim Live Photos

From the same edit menu just mentioned above, you can also trim Live Photos. 

Just press and hold on one of the ends of the slider, trim to your liking, and hit "Done" to finalize. You can always revert the changes later by entering the edit menu again.

18. There Are New Loop & Bounce Live Photo Effects

If the previous two Live Photos features weren't enough, Apple also added a couple cool motion effects for Live Photos — Loop and Bounce. 

The former loops it like a normal GIF would, and the latter just bounces the video back and forth endlessly.

19. There Are Long Exposures!

Okay, so it's not a long exposure feature in the Camera app, but it's still cool. 

Just set up the scene you'd like to take a long exposure for, snap the pic with Live Photo enabled, 

then edit it just like you would for the Loop and Bounce effects, only this time select the Long Exposure option. Pretty sweet, right?


20. You Can Add Markup to Screenshots Quickly

Apple assumes most people who take screenshots will want to edit them right away, so they added a quick markup feature for screenshots. 

Just take a screenshot, then tap on the thumbnail in the bottom left, which brings up the edit page where you can draw using any number of tools. 

The thumbnail is invisible in other screenshots, so you can still rapid fire screenshot like you normally would.

21. Dark Mode Has Arrived ... Sorta

While it's not the Dark Mode we wanted it to be, it's the next best thing. Just head to your Display Accommodations and turn on Smart Invert. 

More info on this trick is available at the following link.

22. You Can Make Notifications Persistent

While I'm not sure who exactly would want to enable this feature, 

I'm sure there are a few good use-cases for needing to have those banner notifications you get stay there until you dismiss them. 

If that sounds like something you want, it's pretty easy to set up in your Notification settings for apps that support banners.


23. 32-Bit Apps No Longer Work

Okay, this may sound like a negative thing to you, but to me, it gives me a reason to finally get rid of all the apps that are no longer working anyway. 

Most of the apps that haven't been updated to 64-bit apps just don't function like they used to, and I never use them anyway.


24. There's Indoor Maps for Malls & Airports

If you've ever had a hard time finding a public restroom in a shopping mall or airport, you'll appreciate this. 

Apple Maps now has indoor maps for the floor plans of malls and airports — they even work on different levels. 

We haven't seen any locations around us supported yet, but hopefully soon!

25. Navigation in Maps Now Has Lane Guidance & Speed Indicator

Apple wants to make sure you don't miss your exit next time, or get pulled over for a speeding ticket when you missed that tricky speed limit sign way back there. 

Speed limit indicators are only available for certain roads, but it's a decent start.

26. And There's Do Not Disturb While Driving

Perhaps the biggest Maps addition in iOS 11 is the "Do Not Disturb While Driving" mode. 

Supposedly, it'll automatically kick in when you're connected to your car's Bluetooth and moving, but it's a little buggy right now. 

Eventually, you'll be able to toggle it on or off via the new Control Center icon. 

Anyone in your favorites list will get a message that lets them know you're driving, and they can break through that barrier by following up with "urgent" as a text.

27. There's a New Wallpaper

While we're hoping for more than just one, this one should tide you over for now. Head to the following link to see different ratios for different devices.
