This weekend's iOS 11 GM leak revealed — and confirmed — a multitude of new features and hardware set to debut this fall, likely spoiling a number of surprises Apple had in store for its special event next week. Taking a step back from the deluge of new information, at least one insider believes the early disclosure was perpetrated by a disgruntled employee.
This Tuesday, the first-ever event at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Apple's iconic iPhone. It's expected to be headlined by a new OLED model known as the iPhone X, but that's not all the company has in store. AppleInsider gives you a complete rundown of what to expect.
The iOS 11 GM leaked firmware provides details into how the screen will accommodate the notch at the "forehead" of the iPhone X screen, including moving wireless signal information to the right side of the status bar.
A deeper dive into Friday's leaked iOS 11 GM seems to reveal a slew of new features set to launch with "iPhone 8," including a facial recognition system dubbed "Face ID," new Portrait Lighting camera effects, a True Tone display and more. A new version of AirPods is also hinted at in the code.
Friday's supposed iOS 11 GM leak continues to yield clues about Apple's upcoming product launches, with new evidence pointing to the imminent release of an all-new Apple Watch "Series 3" with LTE connectivity.
A golden master of iOS 11, the final version of Apple's next-generation mobile operating system, was reportedly leaked on Friday, potentially bringing with it clues as to what Apple will announce at its expected iPhone unveiling next week.
Apple has begun pushing out Tips notifications to iOS 10 users, encouraging them to get familiar with some of the features coming in this fall's iOS 11 — perhaps a sign that the update is as little as a week away.
Just three days after the last release, Apple has made the ninth beta of iOS 11, and tvOS available for developers to test — suggesting a release is imminent in conjunction with new products that need the operating systems to function.
Gesture controls are the touchscreen equivalent of keyboard shortcuts on a traditional computer — that is to say they are meant for pro users. For that reason, users shouldn't expect that Apple will kill off the iPhone home button entirely anytime soon, despite radical changes expected on the pro-focused "iPhone 8."
Rather than presenting a virtual home button, the so-called "iPhone 8" is expected to instead offer a new software bar that could dramatically change how the iPhone is used, introducing new gesture controls for returning to the home screen and switching between apps.
Two new ARKit demonstrations by developers are showing the rapid advancement of what is possible with the new technology, with one showing food on a plate prior to ordering, and the other illustrating sculpting and painting with the iPad for use in other AR applications.
Files discovered in the latest iOS 11 beta release suggest Apple is planning to add a host of exercises to Apple Watch's Workout app this fall, including complex activities like kickboxing, fishing, equestrian sports and more.
