A comprehensive view of iOS 11

Apple has put out a ton of new features in iOS 11 SDK. I’m super curious to know what Apple will unveil on the new iPhone Event. iOS 11 includes a bunch of changes that you need to be aware of when creating apps.



Apple stepped in Augmented Reality with the introduction of ARKit. This Framework gives user AR experiences in apps. ARKit can automatically detect horizontal surface, movement tracking, tracking real-world object, and place virtual objects in visual realism. It actively supports Unity, Unreal and SceneKit.

Core ML

It allows you to integrate CoreML trained Machine learning algorithm Model. Core ML supports Vision for image analysis, Foundation (NSLinguisticTagger class) for natural language processing and GameplayKit for evaluating learned decision trees.

Apple provide ready-to-use CoreML models for trees, animals, food, vehicles, people, airport terminal, bedroom, forest, coast, and more for use. Here is the download link.

Drag and Drop

One of the most handy feature, Drag & Drop now available for users will provide an easy and quick way to move or copy-paste content from one app to another by Multi-touch. User can move text, images, contacts, reminders, maps and files from one app to another.

HEIF for images & HEVC for video

Apple has two new media formats: HEIF for images and HEVC for video. Developers can take advantage of the space-saving and higher-fidelity features of these formats.

App Store - in-App Ratings & Responses

Apple added new StoreKit framework that allow developer to ask for Rating and Review in the application. One does not need to redirected to App Store for this. Also developer can reply to users reviews. Here is brief understanding and coding guideline for developer.

Wrapping Up

Apple has arrived at such significant change in iOS 11. Apple’s main focus in this update is to improve user engagement, provide AR & ML with high performance, security and amazing new UI design.

While there is certainly more to know and waiting to be revealed. It’s necessary to adjust apps in the iOS 11 and new upcoming iPhones.
