As everyone knows we like to be with or ahead of the game here at DESC Computers even if that means with a new operating system.

The new IOS 11.0 was released from Apple today for their devices

First thing we did here was our iPad’s – Just in case – and guess what – we couldn’t WAIT to do our phones!!!! The update is great and has some really cool features. The ones that we like here are


Screen Shots are now really manageable – you can take a shot – write on it quickly etc. and then text it, email it, save it to Dropbox or whatever you want to do it and then it doesn’t automatically save. You can now dump it straight away without it clogging up the memory of your phone


The next thing we really liked was the live photos and what you can do with them !! Live. Loop. Bounce. Long Exposure – oh what fun!!



BUT BE WARNED!!! – if you have outdated apps that are a “OMG what am I going to do without them” – don’t do the update until you find another similar. Most people know that I am a weather freak! I have about 10 apps on my iPhone to tell me what the weather is doing. Yes I know I can look outside but hey – I’m weird! This is the message you get when you try and load the apps



Oh and I forgot to mention the knew control centre screen – pretty nifty I recon 🙂 Fully customised now. Really Exciting. Below are what can be turned on/off – Settings > Control Centre > Customise Controls



One of the great features that I think is essential for women and men who walk/jog etc alone – the EMERGENCY CALL feature – tapping the side button about 5 times repeatedly and it will call 000 – it does give you the option to cancel the call to 000 and a siren warning you that it is about to call. You can cancel the 000 call and then ring your list of emergency contacts if you wish.- but wow – great one Apple!!
Settings > Emergency SOS > Auto Call – you can even turn off the warning alarm
