Siri from the keyboard
Talking to Siri is not always the best option, and the company has realised that. So with the new iOS 11 update, the company now allows you to activate the “Type to Siri” feature from the accessibility settings. After activation, you can open Siri and then type the question you want to ask it.
Apple now in the Safari browser provides an always-on adblocker. This will stop ad firms from tracking the moves of the consumers. It might affect most website’s revenue model like our’s, however, we do feel that users need some privacy from the heavy pop-up ads that a few sites show to generate more and more revenue.
In iOS 11 there are also a few iPad specific features introduced, including a new multi-tasking system. The new system is being called by Apple as the dock. Whenever you are performing a task and want to multi-task, you can just swipe up from the bottom and open up the dock. After which you can press the app you want to multi-task with and it will open up in a small window on the screen so that you can do so.
