Your old iPhone is about to be obsolete. Thanks Apple

Previewed this week at Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, iOS 11 will support new features for augmented reality apps, a smarter and more language-savvy Siri digital assistant, expanded payment options through Apple Pay, and more.

While Apple typically launches new iPhones shortly after its iOS updates, this year's phones are expected to be delayed past the usual release date in September.

The update will also include a "driving mode" which will mute notifications and can even send an automatic response to messages, informing the recipient that the iPhone owner is driving. He is also fanatical about football which makes it all the more unusual that he should support Stockport County.

Apps that only run in 32-bit will not show up in search results in the new version of the App Store, or be available from the Purchased tab if they have been downloaded previously.

Ahead of Apple's WWDC 2017 event, there were a bevy of clues that suggested the company might drop support for 32-bit apps in iOS 11.

It has never been possible to expand an iPhone's storage.

Particularly on iPad, the Files app could be perceived as bringing a bit of a Mac feel to Apple's handheld device while also addressing the needs of power users who have been calling out for such functionality. However, you all need to be using iOS 11 devices for the trick to work, as 9to5Mac has found. Self-destructing photos is one of the most popular features of Snpachat.

"App development is a cut-throat area of digital business, and one in which ease of use is a massive contributor to success". So, no third party apps required.

Apple has prepared developers for this transition, announcing through an iOS 10 beta earlier this year that apps will have to support 64-bit hardware in the upcoming version of iOS - that would be iOS 11 - to work on those devices. It's hard to say exactly how this new functionality will play out, but with Apple now embracing NFC it's definitely one to keep an eye on. The Cupertino giant talked about improvements to iMessage, its native messaging client, but forgot to mention an interesting new and useful feature that's making its way to the same - Business Chat.
