The app drawer is now redesigned with a scrolling view. Messages also works with iCloud now so messages stay in sync including deleted messages and more. This new feature also works with macOS and still includes end-to-end encryption. Apple Pay also now works with iMessage to enable peer-to-peer payments as an iMessage app as rumored.

Siri has also improved starting with a new voice created by deep learning. The new machine learning improvements apply to both the female and male voice. Siri now supports translation in beta including translated feedback and a new visualization. Siri will now work with task management apps and more, offer contextual aware responses based on on-device learning, and more.

Apple’s Camera app is also doing better video and photo compression to optimize storage during capture without breaking sharing compatibility. Software changes include new features like a new Depth API for dual camera iPhones.

The Photos app will use machine learning to find new Memory categories like sporting events and anniversaries, and portrait orientation Memories as well as Live Photo improvements like choosing the still shoot and looping clips.

Control Center in iOS 11 has been redesigned with a single page layout for the first two panels on iOS 10. 3D Touch is used to expand panels with related controls.

The lock screen and Notification Center have also been redesigned to be a single interface.

Apple Maps has been updated with detailed floor plans for malls across a handful of cities with more to come. Airports are also supported for indoor mapping.
