iOS 11 is officially out, which means you can install it on your iPhone and iPad right now to experience some of the things Apple has been working on. If you’ve already tried the beta, then you’ve probably discovered all the secrets of iOS 11. If you’re experiencing it for the first time, however, you should know that many things are changed, while others are just hidden.
Swipe up from the bottom of the screen, and there’s a new Control Center. It has a new design and comes with 3D Touch support. But the best part about it is that you can customize it to fit your needs. Customize Control Center from the Settings app.
Clear all notifications with a tap. Yes, you can, just hold onto that X until the Clear All Notifications menu appears.

You can now instantly annotate screenshots before sharing them. No longer will you have to open them in a different app to do it. Just click on the screenshot thumbnail in the lower right corner after you take one, and annotate it. Share it, and you can then delete it immediately from the same interface.
When your walking, Apple Maps will help you not get lost while walking in certain locations like airports.
It’s finally here. Screen Recording is a great new addiiton to iOS 11, and it all “just works” directly from the Control Center.
I hope you find these tips useful!
