Kantar Worldwide reported in April that the iPhone's market share now stands at its lowest level since July 2014, accounting for just 13.2 percent of smartphone sales in the three-month period ending February. iOS 11 shows Apple is still eager to make an impression.
Another new feature that will see the light of the day with iOS 11 is a new and improved "dark mode".
This means that you will now be able to simply take your phone out, open the camera app, and scan the code without having to download an additional app. Folks from MacRumors have confirmed that the QR code option has its dedicated settings option from within the camera app and remains on by default. You'll also have an option of sending an auto-reply. "Reinstalling the app will place back your data if the app is still available in the App Store", says Apple in its description of the feature. Apple may be focusing on music now with HomePod, but it's also sneaking in a lot of Amazon Echo-like features like controlling your connected appliances and getting updates from Siri. People use them to exchange business cards, tip waiters and even send web links. You can use these funds to complete other Apple Pay transactions, or you can transfer that cash over to your bank account.
More advanced augmented reality capabilities will be made possible through ARKit, Apple's new framework for developers who want to build AR apps for iPad and iPhone users. This feature will be triggered via a button in Control Center.
One can only fit so many new features in a single keynote, especially one as big as the iOS 11 update.

The country's Supreme Leader said the attacks will add to the hatred that Iranians harbor toward the USA and Saudi Arabia . Documents and equipment "for carrying out terrorist operations" were also seized, the ministry said in a statement .
Siri will also use upgraded on-device learning to take user experiences on one app to other apps. The related data and documents of the app will be retained and a tap on app's grayed icon will restore it.
The new functionality promises to save you the hassle of scouring your home for the password to your home Wi-Fi router. Oddly enough, you can no longer swipe to close apps on the iPad, despite still being able to do so on an iPhone.
iOS 11 will also introduce a feature that can free up storage space automatically. This will be handy if you're using larger iPhone Plus models. This mode can be activated by holding down your iOS 11 keyboard's emoji key.
Apple has finally started making improvements to the software that help turn the iPad into the laptop replacement the company has been promising for years.
