IOS 11 causes ActiveSync and image issues with Windows PCs

  • Siri will now translate phrases in several languages

Those who have downloaded iOS 11 in the early days since it was released have reported huge problems with the update. Sydney was among the first cities to get the phones, but it seems like people are not as excited about the newest phones this year as they were in previous launches.

One example of this is the drag and drop feature that works on the tablet as it does with most Apple software and with some third party applications.

Security experts generally agree that one of the safest methods of preventing hackers from gaining access to devices is to regularly turn the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth features off when not in use.

As part of the iOS 11 update, Apple mandated that developers must give app users greater control over when location is tracked.

By pressing and holding that button, you'll be taken to another screen.

If you or your organisation are heavily invested in Microsoft's ecosystem, than you might want to hold off on purchasing the new iPhone 8 or updating to the latest version of iOS. We're talking about the radically redesigned Control Center, which is focused on customization more than ever, but perhaps not enough on simplicity and utility. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth will actually remain available, as Apple said that both are needed to enable the following features: AirDrop, AirPlay, Handoff, Instant Hotspot, and Location Services.

If you want to learn more, Digital Trends does a pretty good job of explaining the difference between the two.

Although, it is expected that when a user turns off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth in the control center, the radio of both of these devices is closed but it is not happening. Just last week, we discussed a Bluetooth exploit that could turn most smartphones into malware vectors without ever pairing with the infected device.

The function comes into effect when the device is hooked up to a vehicle through Bluetooth, the website says, or it can "autodetect when you're driving based on your location and accelerometers".
