The Files App

Finally Apple Introduces The Files App in iOS 11 which allows you to do whatever you want. Sort out files, rename and all those basic tasks which you’ve been doing on your Android or PC or Mac.

Type to Siri and Siri translations

Yes, if you hate talking to Siri you can type your query using the keyboard. This feature is much slower than the traditional method. The response to your typed query will be answered via the traditional Siri’s voice. If you don’t want the voice, you can turn it off in the settings as well.

Siri Translations is the major update for Siri where you can translate phrases or sentences or words from the language you desire. As of now, it supports the translation from English to Chinese, French, German, Italian & Spanish and vice-versa. The process is very simple, simply say “how do you say” your desired phrase/sentence/word and at the end, the language “in Chinese” and this required internet connection.
