As expected Apple has announced the next iteration of their mobile operating system iOS at their yearly WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference).
Apple has also unveiled some major updates to whole product lines like the upgrade of their complete Notebook line improvements to the iMac and a complete new product, the shiny black and ridiculously powerful iMac Pro. But enough of the product releases this is about iOS 11.
Apple listened to the community and is finally giving tablet users the ability to use their tablet almost like a notebook replacement device.
New in iOS 11 is that its now possible to directly use the NFC chip, which the company has been using in iPhones since the iPhone 5S. Apple uses NFC for its payment system ApplePay.
Apple has joined the AR train with the implementation of Augmented Reality (ARKit) in iOS 11. This move makes the iOS platform the biggest AR platform of all – overnight. The full potential of AR in apps is yet to be seen but we are excited about this move and are full of ideas for this.

Apple is also known for dropping technologies and the support of outdated technologies. iOS 11 is no exception – as it will drop support for 32bit Apps.
So, if your app is a bit older and still 32bit or even if you don’t know what this all means, don’t hesitate to contact us. We will do a free evaluation of your app and let you know how we can help you to make your app work with the release of the new iOS in September.
