5 June, Apple showed the world iOS 11, which is characterized by a new set of features and an updated interface. The first beta version of the software platform nice improvements elegantly combined with the glitches of the test Assembly.
iOS 11 offers many new features and improvements, but users of “Apple” devices will lose several familiar possibilities. What we lose with the release of iOS 11?
1. Support for 32-bit devices
The new operating system iOS 11 only works on 64-bit devices. With the release of the Apple update will not offer release from the owners of two 32-bit smartphones – iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. First debuted in September 2012 and was discontinued after a year. The second device was presented in the fall of 2013, but was in the sale until September 2015. Thus, with the launch of iOS 11 Apple refused to devices that do not support 64-bit architecture.

2. Support for 32-bit applications
Perhaps for some it will be a surprise, but any application that was not optimized for 64-bit architecture will not work in iOS 11. When you try to run 32-bit software on the screen, a dialog box appears informing you of the need to update the software.

3. The search string in the downloaded section in the App Store
App Store in iOS 11 were radically new design. Here and a daily selection of programmes, and a separate “Games” tab, and the app of the day, article of the day. The App Store is now almost like a magazine about mobile apps, only in the smartphone. The only thing missing in the new shop – line search bought programs. For some reason the Apple App Store deprived of this important element.
4. Ten-tap for forced restarts of the App Store
We are all very, very frustrating when the App Store begins to fail, to hang out and long load times. This not only creates discomfort in the work, but also takes valuable time. IOS 10, you can easily solve the problem by updating the window contents. To do this 10 times in a row, press the button on the bottom, which leads to a forced restart of the selected section of the store, and all information in it is loaded. IOS 11, this feature no longer works.
5. The iCloud Drive app
In iOS 11 there are no more applications to work with files and documents iCloud Drive. Instead there is a new program Files. By and large, this is the folder which contains links to files that the user works with. Plus the fact that their no longer need to search for Pages, Keynote, iWork, and other apps – all in one place. Here, even the files from Dropbox and OneDrive. The disadvantage is that the same Yandex.Drive Files or Google Drive are not supported.
6. Integration with social networks
Apple has removed from iOS 11 support for Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Vimeo. Built-in support for social networks Facebook and Twitter appeared on iOS devices in 2011 and 2012, respectively. This allowed third-party applications to access the ID of the connected accounts in popular social networks, if the user added them in the settings of the operating system.
After the rejection of the pre-installed support for Twitter, Facebook, Flickr and Vimeo the process of authorizing third-party applications using the social networks will occur through Safari, or by using “AutoFill password”.
7. Panel in the control room
The control in iOS 11 have completely changed. He lost two separate pages to control the player and “smart” home. Now all the content is directly integrated to one page. It’s hard to say it is better or worse, just different. The important thing is that now the control, finally you can customize.
8. Double placing widgets on the iPad
In iOS 10 widgets on the iPad can be placed in two columns. Now, in iOS 11, all interactive elements are centered and are placed in one feed. To save some space on the screen does not work, scroll vertically longer.
9. The ability to close apps in the multitasking drawer by swiping up
In iOS 11 swipe upwards on the iPad runs a dock with icons of selected applications. In the previous version of this gesture, as well as on the iPhone, opens the control.
10. The gesture for “call control” on the iPad
Apple refused the usual gesture on the iPad. Now the swipe from the bottom edge of the tablet screen instead of the control opens the dock with icons of your favorite applications.
Bonus: the Ability to delete notifications.
Another strange decision by Apple. Now on the lock screen you cannot close notifications with familiar swipe across the screen.
