11 things you should know about iOS 11

The 10.5-inch update to the high-end tablet PC features upgraded specifications and comes as Apple both tries to bolster a flagging tablet market and make the large-scale tablet a viable contender to hybrids like Microsoft's Surface Pro.

There's only so much manufacturers can do to update a tablet these days beyond increasing the specs, as the use case for these devices hasn't altered much over the years, beyond them now being able to serve as pseudo-tablet replacements with the addition of a keyboard. Let's have a look at it and see what new features it brings to the table, as well as discuss its price and release date.

Apple recently launched the second-generation iPad Pro and much to the consumers' surprise, it has a price tag nearly similar to the MacBook Air. But later this year, iOS 11 is coming out and it's going to provide a huge update to the iPad software that adds a lot more Mac-like capabilities.

The last three years have been hard for Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad franchise, on account of a shrinking tablet market and cannibalization from larger screen iPhones.

The feature also auto-replies to texts with a messages saying you're driving although you can select certain contacts who'll have the option of texting back "urgent" to display their text regardless of the safety app running. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until the fall to get all that.

Apple iPhone 8 will have vertical dual rear camera setup, unlike iPhone 7 Plus which had the setup horizontally.

That means you get about 20 per cent more screen in a unit that is not much bigger and still under 500g.

- The App Store has been refreshed with a new design. Certainly, there's all manner of commands you can ask Siri to perform with Apple Music, but third-party music services like Spotify are locked out for the time being, just as Siri treats them on iOS.

Meanwhile, fresh media reports have said that the upcoming iPhone 8 may not include next generation gigabit support and the company will stick to 4G LTE technology. It has experienced major changes and has come out as the most efficient and lovable upgraded version. If you're already using one of the iPad Pros, you can probably keep that for now and you'll be fine for a couple of years.

But say this news doesn't impress you. You can place icons for all your frequently used controls and use the full screen for icon placement. If you're just streaming Stan and Netflix, checking Facebook and Email the web - you're really best off with the standard iPad, saving hundreds of dollars. Now that Apple has just refreshed all of its products, however, you're safe to do so without having to fear a better model will launch soon.

It's the best iPad, even though it's not for everyone.
