8 Hidden Features From iPhone With iOS 11


Apple has released its new OS iOS 11 and most people have updated to iOS 11 to experience new features. After update to iOS 11, I found some hidden features from iOS 11 which may not be noticed. Share them with you. 

Screen recording

Activated via the new control centre (you add it in settings), this takes a short video of your screen activity, such as if you want to show a relative how to use a feature.

Do Not Disturb While Driving

This feature detects if you're driving using a combination of speed and sometimes Bluetooth connections. It keeps the screen dark and shuts off all notifications to stop you being distracted.

Live photo changes

You can make your live photos loop, bounce and create a long exposure effect by dragging upward on the screen when looking at them.

New iMessage effects

There are new effects in iMessage. Echo, which is pictured, repeats your message across the screen.

Emergency SOS

Pressing the lock button five times in quick succession allows you to slide for emergency SOS, which dials 999 and sends a message to your emergency contacts (edited in the Health app) with your location

Edit Siri messages

If Siri didn’t quite hear what you said, you can now edit your commands by typing.

Siri translation

Perhaps a little behind Google, but Siri can now translate foreign languages on the fly.

Document scanning

Scanners can finally be put to bed. When creating a note, press the plus button and select scan documents. You can manually edit the area, turn them black and white and add signatures
