IOS 11 brings NFC smarts to more apps

Wi-Fi password Well Apple looks like they will be making sharing of your local network password a whole lot easier

Talking of multitasking, drag and drop is now a bigger part of iOS for iPad. The official tagline for iOS 11 reads: "A giant step for iPhone".

Until now, third parties have not been able to use the tech on the iPhone.

IOS 11 has brought along a host of new features, some targeted to exclusively elevate iPad experience, and some focused on improving both - the iPhone and iPad.

The Folders app offers an easier and cleaner way to browse files on your iPad. This allows you to switch apps quickly while working or performing other tasks.

"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.

If for whatever reason, the iOS 11 Beta is not there, wait a few minutes, check again.

The new video demonstrates these features, showing off the new dock, drag and drop functionality, and Files application that are sure to make the iPad experience more productive than ever.

You can also get to the option by going to Settings, and tapping on iTunes & App Stores.

In addition to support for FLAC, Apple is introducing a ton of new features that could kickstart the transformation of iOS from simply a mobile operating system to a legitimate hybrid platform with desktop functionalities. You can also access the Notes app by tapping your Pencil on the Lock screen, and text will automatically move aside when you add a drawing or image. But if you're not, and would prefer not to join the company's developer program, the public beta program is your best bet.

More advanced augmented reality capabilities will be made possible through ARKit, Apple's new framework for developers who want to build AR apps for iPad and iPhone users. This includes a new feature called Offload Unused Apps that deletes dormant apps from the phone without losing data on it, Maps improvements like lane guidance, Do Not Disturb While Driving feature, and even speed limit indications.
