Another cycle, another update for iOS. Matter of factly, oohs and ahhs were aplenty on a number of new things iOS 11 has to offer when it was unveiled at the Worldwide Developers Conference. In many ways it's even better, since it allows you to pick up multiple objects and then drag them to a new destination in another app.
The app store has also got a facelift with iOS 11 to make app and game discovery faster.
The company's new augmented reality development platform was shown off in an impressive demo that involved virtual objects being overlaid on a table that had been set up on-stage during the keynote presentation.
- Siri has been bumped up once again, and this time Apple's friendly digital assistant can translate five languages (Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish).
Apple has finally added support for optical image stabilisation along with HDR for portrait mode (on compatible devices only).

The Maps app will support indoor mall and airport maps. It also adds lane assists when turning.
The Apple Music Profiles are revamped, and you'll be able to check out what your friends at listening to.
- One-handed keyboard mode on the iPhone has a new QuickType keyboard, giving quicker access to numbers and special characters.
The Lock Screen has been improved, and you'll be able to see all of your Notifications in one single place. Need to sign and send something? With this iPad Pro, Apple comes closer than ever to simulating that experience. Makes sense, right? And is it an aim to Microsoft's Surface?

But, in one big way, reviewing the iPad Pro, now as a device for real work would only be telling half the story.
Those were the good.
