iOS 11 Release Date, Top Feature: Everything You Need To Know
During the WWDC last week, Apple announced its new operating system (OS) for iPhone and iPad, which is the iOS 11. According to the Cupertino-based company, they are launching the operating system this fall and it will bring new features to your Apple gadget.
One of the many features that iOS 11 will bring is the drag and drop function, according to BGR. It is one of the coolest iOS 11 features in a while and a feature that should completely change the way an Apple user will interact with his/her iPad. However, these productivity apps will also be useful for iPhone.
The Irish programmer and developer Steven Troughton-Smith, who’s usually digging inside Apple's operating system code for gems, discovered how to enable the drag and drop feature on Apple iPhone. He claimed that the giant tech firm could easily let anyone use this new feature.
According to CNBC, iOS 11 brings reinforcement for dragging and dropping items between the installed applications. On an iPad, a user might drag a photo from the library or photo album right into an email. As of now, a user can attach a photo to an email but need to tap around inside the textbox in order to do so. However, once the iOS 11 comes, this should make things quicker.
Apple hasn't talked much about this feature especially on the iPhone, but developers have announced the option exists in early iOS 11 code. Because of this, iPhone users should expect to hear more about that. Multitasking on an iPad will take a very big advantage of the drag-and-drop feature, too, creating a much more powerful experience for the user than ever before.
Troughton-Smith’s demo on the new drag and drop feature shows that it could work on iPhone just like on iPad. However, we must take note that just because Apple could enable the full feature and function on iPhone doesn’t mean the company will release it within this year. On the other hand, developers may do it on their own, but such tricks will require jailbreaks on the iOS 11.
