4 Impressive New iOS 11 Features That You Might Not Know

iOS 11 public beta 3 has recently been rolled out for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches. There are a number of new features that Apple didn’t mention at the WWDC 2017 event. If you want to find what they are, we are glad to share with you 4 new features on iOS 11.

Native GIF Player

With this new feature, you can now save GIF images to your Camera Roll and play it directly on your iPhone without the help of any third-party app.


The Native GIF Player also works with existing GIFs that you have previously saved on your device before updating to iOS 11. Simply launch your Photos app, tap the Animated album, and choose one of GIF photos and it will then start playing. From now, you can freely save any GIFs you like and play it later in your stock Photos app.

Shut Down Option

You don’t like turning off your iPhone by using the power button. On iOS 11, there is a new feature in Settings, called “Shut Down,” allowing you to shut down your device without any help of the physical button.

To get this feature, simply go to Settings > General, scroll to the bottom and tap on Shut Down. Your device is now shutting down.

Built-in Screen Recorder

One of the favorite features that many iOS users are expecting is here. You can easily record your iPhone screen in iOS 11 without requiring  the jailbreak or any  third-party app.

This built-in feature lies right on your Control Center, so you can easily open it. To use the screen recorder on iOS 11, head to Settings > Control Center  and drag “Screen Recording” to the active tab. After that, you can record your phone’s screen just by swiping up to open the Control Center and tap on the camera icon.

Offload Unused Apps

If you are usually low on storage, especially with 16GB iPhone/iPad users, freeing up space is common. Fortunately, with a new feature on iOS 11, called Offload Unused Apps, it will help you resolve this problem.

When your device runs out of storage, deleting apps is unavoidable. But uninstalling your apps also means that their data are removed. However, with the new Offload Unused Apps feature, it allows you to delete any apps while you can still save their documents and data.

These are some typical new features in iOS 11. If you feel them useful, share your thoughts with us in the comment below.
