iOS 11 Features & Changes

9to5Mac posted a really nice twenty-seven minute video illustrating over one hundred new features and changes found in the first beta of iOS 11. I didn’t count them all, but there are a ton.

This marks my first full month of posting every weekday. About a month ago, Renshaw and I made a commitment to posting every day, and so far both of us have kept our promise.
