Apple may finally be adding a file manager app in iOS 11

New iOS 11 features will allow you to get more out of the iPad too.

The new assistant pools the data it learns about you so it's able to suggest news topics you might find interesting through the News app, or make suggestions based on Safari history. This will make replying on-the-go much easier. We're likely to see updates to two of Apple's hardware lines: the iPad Pro and the MacBook Pro.

"We've used deep learning to create a really natural and expressive voice for Siri", Craig Federighi, Apple's senior vice president of Software Engineering, said during the event.

There's a new "Files" app, which can help keep files and documents in one place, whether they are in iCloud or other third-party providers including Box, Dropbox and Google Drive. Apple Pencil is more deeply integrated into iPad with support for inline drawing and a new Instant Notes feature opens Notes from the Lock Screen by simply tapping Apple Pencil on the display.

Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference is traditionally about software, but that certainly isn't the case this year as the tech giant has refreshed its Mac line, and introduced a new HomePod speaker. ARKit allows developers to tap into the latest computer vision technologies to build detailed and compelling virtual content on top of real-world scenes for interactive gaming, immersive shopping experiences, industrial design and more.

Best New iOS 11 Features
Daryanani said Apple may also announce an iPad Pro with a faster processor in an attempt to revive its long-slumping tablet sales. Apple made a number of announcements at its Worldwide Developers Conference Monday, but one feature may be a true life-saver.

Tapping Apple's Siri digital assistant, such a speaker is expected to serve as a butler as well as an outlet for listening to music. Not only does it get a new logo and look but machine learning means Siri sounds more human and can be interacted with in a more human way.

Cupertino also promised more apps and stickers within Messages, but most notably, Messages will be stored in the cloud.

It'll come with a new feature called ProMotion.

The company also announced a Do Not Disturb While Driving mode, which detects when you're driving and prompts you to use the mode. Users have the option of sending an auto reply to contacts listed in Favorites to let them know they are driving and can not respond until they arrive at their destination. The new feature, which directly targets apps like Square Cash, PayPal and Venmo, will use Touch ID for authentication and let users easily transfer funds from their Apple Pay Cash Card to their bank account. There's a new "Today" view to show new apps, a space to show off new games, a new tab for non-gaming applications. Subscribers can create a profile so their friends can follow them, listen to playlists they've shared and see the music they listen to most. The iPad Pro is shipping next week at $650. The updated version of Siri will be rolled out later this year with the release of iOS 11.
