Apple has released the second beta for the upcoming iOS 11 last June 21. But instead of just getting upgrades and fixes, Apple decided to introduce new features on iOS 11 Beta 2. What are these features?

Seven New Features in iOS 11 Beta 2

According to MacRumors, there are seven (7) new features available on iOS 11 Beta 2. The first one is called "Dock - Show Recents" which can be found under General --> Multitasking. This feature will allow users to change Dock settings on iPads disabling "Show Recents" option which in turn, displays most recently used apps on the dock. Once disabled, only docked will show up.

The second feature is self-explanatory - it is named "Do Not Disturb While Driving". This feature is initially set to "Enable". The third feature provides support for "Hindi Dictation".

An option to disable Control Center comes in at fourth. Once disabled, Control Center will not come out when the screen is swiped upwards, and can only be accessed from the Home Screen.

The fifth feature can be found in the Settings app of Safari under Advanced. This new feature gives option to turn on experimental features like Constant Properties, CSS Spring Animations, WebGPU, Web Animations, and more.

The new "Save to Files" Share Sheet option is the sixth latest feature. This is used to save photos, documents, and other files to the Files app. This new feature replaces the Add to iCloud Drive option. According to the update, legacy document providers like OneDrive, Box, PDF Expert, and other apps will soon become available on iOS 11.

The last feature is a new blur animation when the user pulls down from the top of the screen to show the Lock Screen/Notification Center. This blur animation also shows when pulling up to access the Home screen again.
