Productivity-focused changes for the iPad include a new file system, a dock for apps, and drag and drop.

The new feature was spotted by 9to5Mac, which says that the devices need to be close to each other and unlocked for the feature to work.

iPhone 5, iPhone 5C and the iPad 4 are not eligible for the update. You'll be able to install it on your iPhone 5s and later, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, the latest iPad (5th generation, 2017), iPad mini 2 and later, and iPod touch 6th generation. Apple promises that iOS 11 will make your "iPad experience even more powerful and personal".

Apple has improved the multitasking abilities in iOS 11.

"By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways", according to Apple.

One handed keyboard mode has been available on Android devices for some time and previous year Microsoft rolled out a one handed keyboard which can be used on iOS. In addition, Siri can now translate phrases for you, from English to Chinese, French, German, Italian, and Spanish. You can easily restore the unused apps by clicking on the greyed out icon, should you wish. For example, based on searches made using the Safari browser, Siri will be able to offer more personalized place and topic suggestions on Mail, Messages and other apps.

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. With iOS 11, however, it appears sharing your Wi-Fi login details will remain a secret.

The iPhone 5S runs on the 32-bit processor, and the iOS 11 only supports the 64-bit architecture, so the iOS 11 will not show nearly all of the apps that run on 32-bit architecture in iPhone 5S after updating to the iOS 11. Geskin also posted schematic images that purport to show the design of the new iPhone.
