We chose eight of the coolest new features of the new platform. Not all of them will be available to Russian users, at least at the time of release of the new “OSes”.
Yes: the new Item control with the ability to customize
In iOS 11 Item management has undergone significant changes. OS from Apple has always been famous for the fact that there are very few settings and this, they say, is good for inexperienced users.
