iOS 11 beta has been in the hands of community since it was officially announced at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Apple’s new version of iOS comes with hundreds of new features including a completely redesigned Control Center, a new Files app, improved Siri, peer-to-peer payment in Apple Pay and more.
Apple is offering iOS 11 as a beta for testing purposes. This means that iOS 11 is still an unfinished product, so it may include bugs and glitches. We have heard some of the problems users are facing with Apple’s new version of iOS. Apple still has work to do to fix issues before final build of iOS 11 releases to the public this fall.
In this post, we will walk you through three iOS 11 problems Apple should fix before the final release. Before we proceed, make sure that you are running iOS 11 developer beta on your iPhone or iPad.
A redesigned Control Center
Control Center has got a big improvement in iOS 11, offering more customization and quick access to your most frequently used controls all in one page. However, Control Center has some design issues. One such issue is that the icons for some controls are not obvious to many folks, making it harder for users to control their iPhone and iPad.
Besides, iPhone and iPad owners need to perform a 3D Touch firm press on the Now Playing tile to change the audio outputs, which is super annoying. Apple needs to fix this issue before the final iOS 11 releases this fall.
Drag and Drop on iPhone
Drag and Drop is one of the best highlights of iOS 11. Basically, the feature allows you to drag content like images, photos, and links from one app and drop it to another. While this feature works pretty well on the iPad, things are not always what they seem on the iPhone.
In reality, Apple did not mention the drag and drop feature when it comes to the iPhone. However, developers say that it can work on the iPhone, making moving texts and images much easier. They also reported that the feature is not working properly on the iPhone, and it seems that Apple needs more time to work on the feature before the final iOS 11 releases later this year.
In iOS 11, the lock screen has been merged with notification center, allowing users to easily interact with their new notifications and widgets. However, this also comes with some annoyances.
Right now, swiping down on your iPhone’s screen to access notification center also brings up the lock screen. From here, you can even open the Camera by swiping left on the lock screen. However, from now on, you need to swipe all the way up to view your older notifications. And swiping left to access contextual buttons is gone, forcing you to perform a 3D Touch action on a notification. The new unified notification center may be a new thing in iOS 11 that requires some time to get used to. However, we are expecting Apple to make it much easier to use.
