At the WWDC 2017, Apple showcased some of the key features the iOS 11 will bring forth like a smarter Siri, iMessage and iCloud syncing, ARKit for developers, redesigned App Store and more. With the Developer Preview and Beta version already out, a few more exciting features of iOS 11 are being revealed which should build up the excitement even more.

iOS 11 will bring screen recording to your iPhones and iPads which can be accessed from the Control Center. iOS 11 is revamping the Screen Control menu and a new addition will be the screen recording feature.

A possible Dark Mode on iOS 11

Apple s Dark Mode feature has been teased for quite some time and was spotted on iOS 10 s Developer Preview as well. Although the Dark Mode did not make it to iOS 10, it could be official on iOS 11. Found under a new feature called Invert Colors in the Settings menu, this turns light backgrounds dark but without affecting the images and icons. This new feature will possibly be a better version of the already available Night Shift on iOS 10.

iOS 11 brings native GIF support

Spotted on Reddit, iOS 11 will bring native GIF support to your iPhones and iPads. Now you can view GIFs directly on the Photos app under an album called ‘Animated’. Previously, one could view GIFs on messaging and third-party apps only.

Suggestions for clearing space on your devices

iOS 11 will help iPhone and iPad users with storage problems as it will provide suggestions on how to reduce space. The Storage settings will have specific recommendations on similar photos that can be deleted, long iMessage threads, and attachments as well. With iOS 11, users will be able to perform the actions on the Settings menu itself. ALSO READ: WWDC 2017: Here are the top features of iOS 11

Reported by 9to5mac, this new update can be activated by selecting ‘Automatically’ fetch schedule option under the Settings menu.

Say bye-bye to signal circles

Something small but interesting is the revival of signal bars on iOS 11. As of now, the signal connectivity is shown in circles, but with iOS 11 it will be shown in bars. ALSO READ: WWDC 2017: iOS 11 beta reveals a drag and drop feature for iPad
