With every new iOS release come several new features that Apple enthusiastically introduces during its annual WWDC event, while a plethora of smaller features go unmentioned. The introduction of iOS 11 followed suit, spotlighting major changes to Control Center and screen shots, new AirPod controls and Screen Recording.
Whether they actually want to be helpful beta testers or they just can't wait to see all the newest iOS features, many iPhone and iPad users have joined the Apple Beta Software Program, which allows for early access to new iOS versions.
Apple has already sent invites to its fall iPhone event, however there were no clues as to the agenda for September 12. While a dramatically redesigned 10th-anniversary iPhone is expected, most reports have also described an incremental upgrade commonly referred to as the iPhone 7s. Now 9to5mac claims Apple has other plans for the upcoming iPhone names.
It's official. Apple on Thursday sent out invites to an upcoming event on September 12th at its new Cupertino campus. As the invite points out, this will be the first Apple keynote to be held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park. The event will take place at 10:00 am (PST) and it will be live streamed on the official Apple Events page.
There have been a few signs that Apple is working on launching a smaller stylus for the iPhone. Apple released the original Apple Pencil for the iPad Pro in 2015. As of right now the stylus only supports Apple's Pro lineup of tablets, but three patent applications for an iPhone version of the Pencil have been recently spotted by Patently Apple.
The latest filing includes illustrations featuring only an iPhone, and focuses on tracking tip wear to prevent screen damage.
