iphone iOs 11 security and usability features

The new iphone iOs 11 has been out for the last two weeks! Have you discovered all its features and hidden secrets? For its 999£ price tag, you most certainly want to know all its features.

So here’s a look at the 6 best security and usability features hiding inside the iphone iOs 11.


Apple is protecting their user’s privacy by adding this privacy feature. The ad industry is calling it sabotaging the economic model for the internet. We at NOS Apps think it’s a great feature and allows you to take control of your privacy stopping ad firms from tracking your moves.

Type to Siri

Now you can type to Siri. For those that don’t want to talk to Siri, you have the option of typing your question.

Here’s how: Setting > General > Accessibility > Siri > Type to Siri. Next time you prompt Siri a keyboard will appear.

Customise your Control Centre

The Control Centre is found by swiping up from the bottom of the screen. Now it allows you to select multiple programs you want quick access to. Want an alarm or stopwatch button, just add it!

Manage your Files

The iOs 11 adds a new built in app called Files. Here you are able to access and manage your stored files on your Apple device. For further security protection install our get2Clouds® app to secure your data with encryption before you sync with the cloud. It is currently available on Android with the Apple version to be released soon.

Siri Translates!

Now Siri can translate phrases into multiple languages including Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish. Amazing! Ask Siri, ‘how do you say’ plus your desired phrase ending with ‘in Italian’. Siri will always have the answer for you when you have an internet connection.

Swipe down on keyboard

Now you can swipe down your keyboard keys to select alternative characters. For example, swipe down on the full stop for the question mark, or the letter “r” for the number 4. It makes it so much faster for one-handed typing!

Get2Clouds for Apple is soon to be released. NOS Apps is the securest messengers available on the market. SelfieCheckr, Ecards & Love Notes and BotherU&Me are currently available on Apple App Stores .

Remember the “Macs don’t get viruses” mantra? Well, it’s never been more wrong

Apple not so secure
Historically, malware was never much of an issue with Macs because hackers had no interest making viruses that affected Steve Jobs’ delicious Apples. No, they only wanted to break the Windows of old man Gates. Well, those are well and truly bygone days of yore as a newly published report by Malwarebytes reveals that Mac threats have increased by a staggering 400% from 2018 to 2019, outpacing Windows by nearly two to one in threats per endpoint.
