List of More Than 75 Hidden Features In iOS 11

When Apple’s Senior Vice President, Craig Federighi, came to WWDC stage earlier this year in June, all of us were pretty confident that something good is coming up. And it really proved to be great as well. However, with several months past that keynote event, there are quite a few iOS 11 features that are still not known to the general public and everyone really deserves to know these hidden features in iOS 11.

During initial announcement of iOS 11 at WWDC Apple kept its focus on some of the major new features which didn’t just helped a great demonstration, but also captured imagination of everyone watching. However, with all the focus on those great new features, Apple missed out on many other new changes and hidden features in iOS 11 that it comes with. It might be because of the fact that even though those features were great for the developers, they wouldn’t have grabbed attention of most of those watching the event at home.

So, we have compiled an entire list of those unnoticed new features to help you find out what else is there in the new iOS except those much talked about features. We’ve tried to make sure that none of the new features is left from this list and everything that wasn’t given any stage time during WWDC is shared general public.
