IOS 11 has brought along a host of new features, some targeted to exclusively elevate iPad experience, and some focused on improving both - the iPhone and iPad.

Apple also entered the market for speakers-you-can-talk-to with the HomePod, which is exactly what it sounds like: Siri in a can with a bunch of speakers.

Apple confirmed to CNET this is indeed a feature of iOS 11. Now, developer preview testers are highlighting new features that they have stumbled upon while using unstable iOS 11.

In what is certain to be a welcome move for app developers, Apple has announced that all the reviews and ratings their app has accumulated over the period of its existence on the app store, will no longer disappear when the devs release an update. On this page, there is an option called "Offload Unused Apps", as spotted by Cydia Geeks. Using the cameras, processors and motion sensors built into iOS devices, "ARKit allows developers to tap into the latest computer vision technologies to build detailed and compelling virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more". Here is what you need to know about this feature, plus a tutorial on how to set it up.

The Files app in the now available iOS 11 developer preview can't be described as fully functional.

This feature won't be useful with every app, as some apps like Facebook already store settings and user data on the cloud. This could open up a new avenue of possibilities to how NFC can be used on the iPhone.
