With the WWDC 2017 of last week, Apple gave us to know iOS 11, the operating system for iPad and iPhone that is about to arrive and that left us speechless thanks to its main novelties. But as always, they are only the tip of the iceberg: Apple always leave a letter hidden in the sleeve, a series of functions that you have not read on any website but you will surely love. Keep reading to know them all.

Customizable control center
Yes, we already know that the control center of iOS 11 will be bigger than ever, very interactive and that will take advantage of the 3D Touch to activate many options. But, did you also know that it is totally customizable? This means that if there is a function that you use a lot and another that you do not, you can assign them privileged places or simply not include them. And so happy


Customize your storage
If you are here to run out of space on your iPhone and you have in mind that the space distribution is not optimal, with iOS 11, this is a change because the photographs will help you save space with photos, iMessage multimedia content, storage of attachments ... Or even, an analysis about the functions that you do not use at all and that you can erase perfectly. Come on, that with iOS 11 we will apply all the possible tricks to make the most of the space.


Record your screen
A new feature of iOS 11 will allow us to record our screen from the Control Center, something very useful for developers and players, but also for teaching. Of course, from now on with what you share on Snapchat.

More battery saving
We would all like our iPhone's battery to last longer, Apple knows and promises great improvements for the iPhone 8 as fast charging, either wireless inductive charging or with new batteries with SLP technology.

But meanwhile, for the rest of the mortals who still do not have the iPhone 8, with iOS 11 we can manage the battery saving option from the Control Center itself without having to resort to Settings.

Sort your apps all at once

Until now, if you wanted to organize your apps in folders or screens, you had to go one by one dragging them until you managed to make them as you wanted. But with iOS 11 you can simply move several apps at once. More efficient than ever.


For some time now, smartphone manufacturers have been betting on bigger terminals. You will agree with me that while the experience with the screen is spectacular, ergonomics is not so great and writing sometimes becomes an arduous task.

So Apple has gone to work developing a keyboard for one hand. By the way, it does not matter if you are left-handed or right-handed because you can also adapt that option.

Native QR Reader
As better late than never, Apple has finally integrated a native support for QR codes in iOS 11, so forget about downloading an app to that end because now we can do it with the apps that are integrated.

Night mode


Night Shift is not the only way to help mitigate your tired eyes after a hard day in front of the screen because with iOS 11 the night mode comes in a renewed and effective way.

New intensity bars
All a classic on the screen of your iPhone and a very trivial detail: if until now we measured the intensity of your operator's signal with white circles that were filled to more intensity, now the chosen graph will be a few bars.

New design of the Podcasts
I confess that I am not a great user but Podcasts seem to me an impressive concept and very unused in general. However Apple continues to bet on them renewing its design towards a much more minimalist concept.
