Earlier, we told you how Apple will debut new controls for AirPods in iOS 11, as just one of the new features to look forward to.

    This version sounds like it will just suck up a lot of resident RAM. I’ll stick with ios 10.x

    Additionally the signal bars from 5 to 4 tells me Apple is aware of the poor reception issues with the iPhone 7 radio.

  • Cornfed710

    You can bet that new Siri animation will appear on the virtual home button on the iPhone 8.

  • So Young

    I’m not happy with the comeback of 4 signal bars. Why eliminate a more precise way to see if you have good reception?

  • raslucas

    If it’s like the old bars, it could end up being a fine grain of 8, with each bar having two states (plus empty), as opposed to the dots which have one state. (Again, plus empty). So the dogs have a fine grain of 5. Or maybe 6… I think I’ve seen it with all empty.

  • raslucas

    (I’m not stating fact… but guessing based on from what I remember)

  • Aleks Oniszczak

    Dots are great for showing how many screens there are and signal bars are universally understood as showing signal strength. Why they ever mixed that up I don’t know but I’m glad they’re thinking straight again.
