Apple isn't known for being first. The iPhone-maker is known for its patience in launching new technologies that have already been tested by its competition. This is what makes Apple products standout from the rest. Your iPhone may not be first to ship a new cutting edge technology, but it will feature the best version of of that technology when Apple decides to adapt it into its hardware or software.
Starting with iOS 7, iPhone and iPad apps have been able to run in the background, refreshing even while not in use (prior to this only location services and music playback would run in the background). This allowed apps to update often instead of only updating when opened, so for example, you could get notifications from apps like Twitter and Facebook Messenger without having to launch them.
In addition to adding the Loop, Bounce and Long Exposure effects to Live Photos, iOS 11 introduces several new editing features. You can now trim them and change the key photo, which is the photo that displays in your album.
Apple is said to be putting the finishing touches on the next generation Apple Watch. According to reports, Quanta Computer has begun final testing of the Apple Watch Series 3. Once complete, the device will enter mass production in preparation for release during the fourth quarter of 2017.
It's always disappointing when a new game based on your favorite television show is announced and it is revealed to be a match 3 title. Match 3 games can be tedious if not done correctly, and they tend to be a lazy way for some developers to make a quick buck. I'm not going to claim Jam City isn't guilty of cashing in on the Family Guy name with another uninspired match 3 title, but I do have to admit that I play it a lot.
