iOS 11 is the latest sensation from Apple and it is already in the middle of its beta phase. Right from the introduction at WWDC 2017, this new OS has promised quite a few new features and upgrades that will enhance the user experience manifolds. Some of the major changes that were made to iOS 11 had been introduced at WWDC 2017 keynote but, obviously, there was very short stage time at the event and it couldn’t have been possible to describe each and every change and improvement made to the operating system. So, before the iOS 11 is released we have enough time to discuss all the upgrades and new features coming up.
One of cool changes made to the iOS 11 is in app notifications. The new setting of app notifications allows users to define themselves as to when the notification previews will be available on the Lock screen and when not. This way you can hide app notifications when your iPhone is locked and you don’t want anyone to see them.
We already have one similar feature available in iOS 10 that is currently being used on most of the iOS devices; however, currently the capability is available for iMessages and the built-in Messages app only. But iOS 11 expands this capability to all the notifications that pop-up on your iPhone screen no matter which app they are coming from. It even includes notifications coming from the third-party applications as well.
Though not really a major change, it shows Apple plans to give equal opportunity to third-party applications and remove any barriers that were placed previously on things like notification controls. However, it should be kept in mind that what we are talking about here is only part of the iOS 11 beta and may change when the final version of iOS 11 is released.
