IOS 11 Will Enable The iPhone Camera App To Read QR Codes

Share

Touch-screen laptops like the Surface Book even offer touch gestures that let you switch among running apps and between virtual desktops.

To scan a QR code in iOS 11, users just have to open up the Camera app and then aim the device at the code.

On the home screen, you will still get to see the app's icon but in grey colour, meaning the app was offloaded.

These features will turn an iPad into less of a toy and more of a tool.

The Cupertino-based company showed increased confidence in Siri this week at San Jose, most notably with the unveiling of HomePod. The Files app also contains files from third-party apps such as Dropbox. While there are a bunch of new features some will get excited about, there is one that many will not like so much and that's lost support for 32-bit devices and apps.

A developer beta version of iOS 11 was released yesterday.

In April, The New York Times reported on a tense conversation between Apple CEO Tim Cook and Uber's Travis Kalanick, during which Cook scolded the chief executive and threatened to remove Uber from the App Store for violating Apple's developer guidelines. With pre-orders underway, Best Buy states that if you pre-order the larger tablet, you will guarantee yourself a $50 gift card, while the smaller 10.5-inch iPad Pro will get you a $25 gift card. The Today tab will be the main place to find the rest of Apple's new editorial content that will include a number of regular installments for things like how to's, interviews with developers, and longer form write-ups on games and features... Although this will delete the unused apps, your data and documents will be saved.

And, as noted by this savvy redditor iOS 11 now supports FLAC playback.

The changes may also have come too late to redeem the iPad mini, where they could have helped it compete against encroaching phablets.

Phil Schiller, Apple's marketing chief, announced a redesigned App Store, getting huge applause from the developers in the crowd. The mode will get activated automatically when you connect your iPhone/iPad to your vehicle via Bluetooth or cable.

Apple Pay: Now you can send money to anyone using Apple Pay - the new version of app included in iOS 11 will allow you to do so using Messages app or Siri. The new Siri is smarter and sounds a lot better than the previous one.

"(This) could theoretically add a 4th dimension to how we experience the world", he told CNBC in an email comment.

Apple has also introduced new machine learning API's in iOS 11, which means enterprises can create intelligent and personalized apps, even extending to Siri support.

As you might expect, the devices in question are the oldest iPhones and iPads that can run iOS 10, namely the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c and 4th-generation iPad.
