Apple is expected to preview iOS 11 at the WWDC sometime this upcoming June. So far, here’s what iOS 11 is rumored to have:
Group FaceTime Calls
According to the technology blog The Verifier, they believe that Apple is getting ready to introduce group video chat for FaceTime in iOS 11. Verifier’s sources claim that Apple will also update the Message app to support a group call up to five people.
A New Video-Sharing App
Bloomberg reported that Apple will team up with the team behind Final Cut Pro and iMovie to launch a video-sharing app that is similar to Instagram and Snapchat. The app will include the ability to add drawings and different filters to the user’s creation.
Based on a patent Apple filed, Apple could add more social features to its Contact app. Users will be able to know when a friend is available based on the phone status, similar to Google’s Hangouts and Facbook. The company could also add a feature that let’s users see all their text messages, emails and other social media messages they had with their Contacts all in one place.
Last year, Apple accidentally showed a dark mode for the Settings app running in iOS Simulator, which has many people speculating the company will add this feature in iOS 11. In addition, the app developer Andrew Wiik also noticed that there was a Dark Mode for the Messages app.
Natural sounding Siri
BusinessInsider reports that Apple has a team in Cambridge, England that is working to make Siri sound more natural. There may be support for Siri voice command with top social medias, meaning users will be able to ask Siri to upload a photo via Twitter.
Others speculate that Apple will improve its voicemail transcription that was released in iOS 10, and give users the ability to use Handoff for Apple Music, iTunes and Podcasts. Handsoff is a feature that allows you to switch between different Apple devices and continue your work where you last left off. As more rumors surface about iOS 11, we’ll keep you updated.
