What do you think of this new iOS 11 feature? The users can then interact with the device as normal safe in the knowledge that the new recording functionality will actually be recording it all natively. Kontaxis' announcement was met with applause, and developers who've installed the iOS 11 beta are praising the change on Twitter. Users will be to organise items stored on iPhone and iPad easierly.

"We think this is going to be a real important step with safety in the vehicle", Apple's Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi said of the new feature.

Reddit users with access to the developer-only beta of the new operating system uncovered the screen capturing tool, Gizmodo reports.

"By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways", according to Apple.


And, as noted by this savvy redditor iOS 11 now supports FLAC playback.

Apps will also be given the option to request write-only privileges to a user's photo library, Kontaxis said.

However, there's also another bonus of making the colours negative - it will use much less power and therefore save battery on any device with an OLED display. If the password is shared, it will immediately be filled on the iPhone.

Extended battery life is also expected to play a big part in the new handset, which Apple is rumoured to launch in September to mark the 10th anniversary of the best-selling smartphone range. That might change with the new Podcast app in iOS 11, though, which gets an Apple Music-style visual overhaul. For example, based on searches made using the Safari browser, Siri will be able to offer more personalized place and topic suggestions on Mail, Messages and other apps.
