During Apple’s latest keynote speech, the company’s executives took turns unwrapping some of the latest, greatest, and most powerful gadgets, including an all-new Siri-powered HomePod speaker, powerful new iPad Pro models, refreshed iMacs, MacBooks, and more. Additionally, Apple’s software engineering chief, Craig Federighi, gave us a sneak preview of just a few of the wicked-awesome features coming to iOS 11 this fall.
Unfortunately, given the jam-packed nature of WWDC this year, Federighi didn’t have time to show us all of the exciting new features baked into the upcoming update — but rather, he flashed a banner across the main display for all in attendance to see, outlining dozens of additional iOS 11 features. Here are eight of the most noteworthy among them.
8. Type to Siri
If you’re in a jam and you’d rather type to Siri instead of verbally summoning her, Apple has baked in a neat new Accessibility feature in iOS 11 which will allow you to do exactly that. This a great feature for people, like myself, who struggle with their speech and enunciation, as well as those whose accents have proven difficult for Siri to understand.
