IOS 11 software update focuses more on safety features

However, a byproduct of this quick action is disabling Touch ID unlock of the device and requiring the entry of a passcode instead.

This new feature that Apple has built into iOS 11 offers a more discrete way of locking out an iPhone. Alternatively, Touch ID could always be disabled in iOS Settings; however, in case of emergency, that wouldn't be a particularly practical method.

The feature is actually part of a new Emergency SOS mode in iOS 11, which allows users to configure the phone to automatically call an emergency number.

iOS 11 brings better multi-tasking as well as a dock to the iPad Pro, and even better markup with the Apple Pencil across different apps.

While Androids users are anxiously awaiting the final name, and launch, of Android 8.0 "O", iOS users are also looking forward to iOS 11, set to launch this quarter.

Now, we've got a third claim for you today, which has surfaced only sparingly on the rumor mill. Apple's new method is a far more discrete way of locking out a phone, especially if you're in a situation where you're anxious someone might force you to unlock your phone. With the new OS, you will be able to tweak the animation in Live Photos with various effects. In 2016, a Judge of Los Angels has signed a search warrant that forced a particular woman to unlock the iPhone using her fingerprint and later in the same month, the MI police have indeed printed a victim's fingerprint who has been murdered to acquire the iPhone's access. In the designer's vision, the software gets a big visual overhaul to make use of the iPhone 8's bezel-free design, and to accommodate an iPhone with no home button. The newest version of the operating system is in the final stage of beta, and over the course of its testing phases, developers and enthusiasts have uncovered a lot of features, some of which even Apple did not detail during the announcement at WWDC 2017.
