Apple has recently announced their latest operating system for iPhone and iPad, being iOS11. This update is fantastic for the iPad, as they practically become a true laptop, through the redesigned iOS multitasking, along with an update with the central control menu. So that you know what to expect with this iOS update, here are some of the key features being added to the Apple devices.
1. Transforming the iPad into a laptop replacement
iOS 11 includes a dock like the MacBook, and it follows you from app to app, along with the bottom. Though it is hidden, it can be accessed by swiping up. This feature also shows when multitasking, making switching between apps much easier.
2. iPad Drag & Drop

iOS11 updates the control center menu with a new design that provides a wide range of controls without having to swipe between menus. This comes from everything being combined, such as the system controls, app shortcuts, and music options. You can do this by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.
7. Lock Screen & Notifications combined
In iOS11, the lock screen and notifications are combining into one, making it easier to see which older alerts you might have missed.
