The iPhone will also receive a few updates when the new system is released, including a redesigned control center, a redesigned App Store and a new version of AirPlay. iOS 11 users in countries where ApplePay is supported will be able to send money through the Apple iMessage app. The only requirement is that the iOS devices involved in Wi-Fi password sharing run iOS 11.

With this change coming with iOS 11 in September, nothing is going to stop you from releasing updates early and often.

Last fall, the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposed a new set of guidelines to help address distracted driving caused by cell phones and other electronic devices. But there are plenty of exciting tricks under the hood of iOS 11, including a simpler way to join Wi-Fi networks.

Twitter user Devon T has revealed that iOS 11 has a new volume indicator that no longer obstructs the centre of the screen, as it does now.

More advanced augmented reality capabilities will be made possible through ARKit, Apple's new framework for developers who want to build AR apps for iPad and iPhone users. Using the cameras, processors and motion sensors built into iOS devices, "ARKit allows developers to tap into the latest computer vision technologies to build detailed and compelling virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more".

Until now, third parties have not been able to use the tech on the iPhone.

Apple has improved the multitasking abilities in iOS 11.

Other updates arriving with iOS 11 include new Loop and Bounce effects for photos, Apple Pay payments via Messages and Siri, and a "do not disturb" feature that can be enabled while driving.

Reports suggest that Apple will incorporate a feature in iOS 11 which will allow iPhone users to exchange password simply by approving a nearby phone and sending them the password. Just like that, the iPhone can also now connect to the WiFi network.
