Apple hold its annual WWDC developer conference in the United States, which always has launched a new iOS operating system. This year’s iOS 11, is a major update, adding a number of new features, now let me with five minutes to summarize for everyone which of 20 features and precautions it.
1) using iMessage more convenient
If a large group of friends out meals, the most troublesome in the past is to collect large amounts of cash when the final “money clip” Sometimes you hear of have to charge a lot of “loose silver” even more trouble. In iOS 11, Apple joined the Apple Pay in the Peer-to-Peer (P2P) pay function, as long as through iMessage can pay to a friend, but certification is still carried out in order to fingerprint authentication through Touch ID, and to Apple Pay payment as . When you use the pay, more money will be automatically deposited into the bank, very easy to use. After the “money clip” If you hear of people are using iOS devices to spot “debt collection” even more convenient.
2) Siri can eventually translate!
In iOS 11, Apple also joined the new Siri features, in addition to supporting more languages and can display multiple results outside, this time also added a translation feature, as long as the mother tongue spoken to Siri a talk, then then told Siri translation a specified language, Siri will result in text and voice will be displayed later did a lot easier to travel, especially to some of the places where English is not universal (for example: Japan). This time translation feature Siri is still in beta, being only available in English translated into Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Italian and Spanish, but whether it can support two-way translation? The official did not mention, appear to be necessary tried to know. In addition, Siri also added support for more third-party software, also adding more intelligent learning function, it seems that Apple’s goal is to everyone’s life in every detail are inseparable from Siri Oh!
3) Camera: a finer image of better quality relative to the new file format
In addition, the camera aspects of iOS 11 also added a new feature, which is certainly the most important is that no matter shade or adopt a new format film, photo film with respect to switch to a High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) format, so each iPhone 7 or 7 Plus with photographs, the volume can be finer; As for the film aspect, also uses a High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) format, compared to the previous H.264 formats, video volume more than half of the fine, nor will affect the quality. In addition, iPhone 7 Plus unique portrait mode, but also improves the quality of photos, especially in low-light conditions, the effect will be more obvious.

However, the most powerful, certainly the new “long exposure” feature, for example: We Live Photo shoot with the river, just use this feature, you can make a similar effect long exposure, so that we do not have a tripod make beautiful long exposure photos. I was thinking: used later to beat the rails, light rails photo, it will certainly be more convenient.

iPhone itself has been part of the smart phone, but in iOS 11, iPhone will become more “intelligent”, it secretly observed behavior with the use of home, for example: look at what page, what movies to enjoy, and then give the most appropriate advice. For example: When you browse travel information page of a country, it will write down some keywords, and then when we chat communication software with a friend, simply enter one or two letters of the keyword, even if everyone in the past never enter this place name, it will still appear in the vocabulary suggestions column, very powerful. As for the kind of respect, it will press a few elements records, including: language identification (Language Identification), symbols (Tokenization), Lemmatization (Lemmatization), part of the semantic (Part of Speech) and named entity recognition (Named Entity Recognition), really very smart.
