Just when Google declared the roll out of its developer preview 4 for Android O, Apple has trailed the suit and rolled out the beta 4 for iOS 11 for developers as well. The new beta version of operating system arrives with minor modifications in apps. There are no major modifications since the beta 4 for iOS 11 is all about minute tweaks.
The version of operating system comprises a latest splash screen for Notes application. The app’s icon has been remade as well. A fresh splash screen for the Photos application is also present along with fresh Contacts application icon, remade Reminders application icon, fresh Timer icon present in the control centre, altered Safari logo, and screen recording feature present with fresh animation. Moreover, instead of “Broadcasting,” the feature now reads as “Start Recording.”
In addition to this, the animation for mute icon on iPad Control Centre has been altered, animation of icon for Low Power Mode has been modified, and gesture for pull-to-refresh has been rolled out in App Store Updates tab. Additionally, notifications tab has swipe gestures to unlock them, clear them, or view them. The auto closing of App Switcher is added when the apps are closed and it will not start when the apps stay closed. Furthermore, the sync settings of iCloud Message are now placed below “iCloud Preferences.”
The company has yet not mentioned as to when it will be rolling out the iOS 11 user variant for compatible iPads and iPhones. On the other hand, it is expected that the new version of operating system will be making an entry with the next iPhone variants.
The iOS 11 will be launching for iPhone 6, iPhone 5S, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 7. It will also be received for iPad mini 2 and later, iPod touch 6th generation, all iPad Pro and iPad Air models, and iPad 5th generation. At the time of WWDC 2017 conducted in June, the company displayed the improved Apple Pay, overhauled Messages app, updated Camera app, enhanced Siri functions, and the all-new customizable Control Centre.
