iOS 11 Provides Gamers and Gamblers With The Easiest Access Yet To The Best Apps
Posted on October 5th, 2017
This has been the year that online gaming, and in particular casinos apps, have taken centre stage as a pastime for smartphone users of all ages and demographics. With the advent of iOS 11, what better time to take a look at some of the best casino apps, and how Apple’s new operating system makes them easier to navigate and use than ever.
The best casino apps on your iPhone
The mobile revolution has turned us into a world of gamblers. That might be a slight exaggeration, but there is no denying that online casinos have seen an explosion in popularity, and it has coincided with the ubiquity of smartphones in our everyday lives. There are a growing number of apps for playing live roulette and other popular casino games, with roulette instant play being a prime example.
Of course, you don’t have to have the latest iPhone running iOS 11 in order to play these, but the truth is that iPhones are still seen as the gold standard. When developers contemplate smartphone apps, they still think iOS first and Android and all the rest afterwards, so there is no doubt that iOS 11 provides the richest gaming experience out there. Let’s take a look at some of the other new features in the latest upgrade.
New Dock and Control Center
As soon as you fire up your smartphone, you will notice iOS 11 features a dock that will look immediately familiar to anyone who uses a MacBook. There is room on there for 13 apps, and a particularly neat feature is that the icons automatically resize themselves when you add more. With the ability to pull the dock up whenever you like, along with the facility to drag and drop, there is altogether more of a “desktop” feel.
The traditional Control Center that appears when you swipe up on iOS 10 is still there, but is more flexible than the previous incarnation, allowing you to do more without having to dive into the Settings menus.
Easy WiFi connection
There are few things more annoying than pulling the WiFi router out from its tangle of wires behind the TV to read the code off the back and give it to your friends when they come to visit. The perfect example of a first world problem, perhaps, but iOS 11 has the solution. All you have to do is hold your device close to a compatible machine and it will share the password.
Eyes on the road
The new Do Not Disturb While Driving feature will ensure you are not distracted by notifications while behind the wheel. It detects when you start driving and when you stop, and can automatically switch itself on and off. You can deactivate it if necessary, for example if you are a passenger in a moving vehicle.
Siri’s better than ever
Voice search has become hugely popular over the past year or so, and it is fair to say that Amazon stole a march on the competition with Alexa. On iOS 11, you will find a newer and smarter Siri. Simply call her name or press the home button, and she is ready and waiting.
