IOS 11 deals a blow to Uber's creepy location tracking habit

This new iOS is available for update now.

iPhone users were feeling happy regarding the addition of two new toggles in the control centre.

Below is a screenshot of the iOS 11 interface regarding Emergency SOS feature. You can also customise the layout by adding and removing different menu options.

Apple Music users can now connect with their friends on the Music app itself.

Typing is now easier and faster on the latest software update, as a one-handed mode for the keyboard debuts. Starting with iOS 11, apps would now have to have include the While Using the App option if they wanted to collection location data.

Turning off of Bluetooth and Wi-Fi in iOS will not disable them. rather it will just disconnect the iPhone or iPad from all connected device.

Even if you're not running iOS 11 on your iPhone or iPad, however, you're still getting the benefit.


iPhone's newest update reportedly added a new feature called "screen recording".

If you really want to turn Wifi and Bluetooth off in iOS 11, you have to pull up the Settings app and do it there. Just last week, we discussed a Bluetooth exploit that could turn most smartphones into malware vectors without ever pairing with the infected device.

The latest version of Apple's mobile OS, iOS 11 was made available for download this week and will ship with the company's recently announced iPhones. This fall, Apple Maps will offer indoor maps for shopping centers and airports throughout the world, including Amsterdam, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Miami and San Jose. It will not only speak the phrase but will showcase it on your display so that you can see it.

You can activate Emergency SOS by clicking the sleep/wake button five times in a row.

The situation is further complicated because both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi will turn back on automatically under specific circumstances.

To prevent drivers from looking at their phone, Tech Crunch says Apple has installed a new "do not disturb while driving" feature that "silences all notifications" when on the move.
