Apple may have found a way to end the unsafe practice of texting while driving. Its native app called Files allows users to browse all saved files not only on iPad but also other Apple devices.

The overall look is how much it makes an iPad look like a laptop computer - which should tie in nicely with the new 10.5-inch iPad Pro. And while most of these understandably focused on software, it was the pair of new iPad tablets that arguably stole the show. In addition to iCloud Drive compatibility, Files will work with third-party storage services including Box and Dropbox, a pleasant surprise when so many Apple apps only work with other Apple apps.

In its latest update of iOS 11, Apple has brought some extraordinary changes and improvements.

"Even though the 9.7" iPad is Apple's most popular model - large enough to watch movies or read books, but still small enough to be easily portable - the 9.7" iPad Pro is getting an overhaul.

If you're rocking one of those devices it doesn't mean it'll stop working when iOS 11 ships.

Rice, Power and Brennan are believed to have knowledge of recent intelligence leaks to media outlets as well as unmasking American citizens.

Apple Maps will also be updated with iOS 11. The user experience will be quite similar to a Mac. The MacBook Pro which Apple released late past year with the Touch Bar now comes with 7th-gen Intel Kaby Lake processors along with support for more memory. We can't wait to see what kind of stuff people will cook up.

While the refreshed iPad hardware is available today, iOS 11 isn't ready for prime time quite yet.

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of vehicle accidents, with a significant number of incidents or fatalities attributed to smartphone use behind the wheel.

All in all, the new storage features above are highly welcome, if not long overdue. It now arrives with expanded dock that can accumulate more apps. The official release is coming this fall as a free update for the iPhone 5s and newer, iPad mini 2 and newer, 5th generation iPad, iPad Air, iPad Pro, and sixth generation iPod touch.
