IOS 11 Brings FLAC File Support to iPhones and iPads

Greg Joswiak, Apple's VP of Product Marketing observes that "together with iOS 11 these new iPad Pro models will radically change what users can do with iPad". Days later, a Foxconn insider said in a Reddit thread that the render was an nearly accurate depiction of the actual device. Is it a good replacement for the old 9.7-inch iPad Pro, or is not worth your time? It's clearly an attempt to bridge the user experience gap between a Surface tablet and an iPad Pro.

They will be able to drag and drop files between apps that are running simultaneously in split screen mode. The display's size bump is noticeable, particularly when watching video, but it hasn't really added much to the device's weight (It's still pretty light at about a pound, or 450 grams).

As for the individual pages of the apps, Apple has chosen to highlight reviews, placing more emphasis on Editor's Choice for instance.

Dawson was especially impressed with iOS 11 and its potential on an iPad Pro.

Importantly, the Leather Sleeve also keeps your Apple Pencil in place - tell me you haven't misplaced the Apple Pencil somewhere? Probably not, but Apple decided it could make the screen incredible and so it did.




In the less than a week's time I've been using iOS 11 on my iPad it's completely changed my outlook on the device. I'm not sure I would have sensed that without being told to look for it. Only, you'd be doing it on a tablet, the iPad.

Remove all the Pro features (screen, screen size, Pencil compatibility, processing power, camera and more), you can get the standard iPad for $469, up to $799 for the 128GB with 4G. As a person who still takes a lot of notes with paper and ink, I'm always interested when companies claim their tech can replace my ever-growing pile of notebooks. It's a smaller version of the same accessory that launched with the original iPad Pro back in 2015, but it doesn't address a lot of the issues that many had with it. For creative work and digital note-taking, you'll notice even less latency than before, which is saying something. Developers do it because getting reviews and ratings on the App Store can be a big key toward developing a reputation for anyone who is looking for quality apps on the App Store. It's then that we'll find out if this new iPad Pro is truly worth the money, though considering these early reactions, you probably can't go wrong picking one even before iOS 11 drops.

Siri gets a new voice that will sound more natural (both male and female versions) thanks to Apple's push for machine learning and artificial intelligence.

John Paczkowski at BuzzFeed has a great interview with Phil Schiller and Craig Federighi on the iPad and what iOS 11 means for it and the future of the Mac.

More updates should arrive soon. This should benefit everyone as users will be able to avoid switching apps, theoretically leading to more people providing a rating.
