Some notable changes in iOS 11 beta 5? For users of Portrait mode in the iPhone 7 Plus, it appears the feature has finally come out of beta. A new splash screen explains what the feature does, which reads “Create a portrait with a depth effect that keeps your subject sharp while creating a beautifully blurred background.”
Other miscellaneous changes that caught our attention:
- FaceTime has a new sound (hit the 4:50 mark), while various system titles now appear bolder.
- Notes gets a new splash screen.
- There is now a Siri voice for Canadian French!
- Geekbench scores have reached 5946 in multi-core, versus 5600 when iOS 10 came out.
- When iPhone charging reaches 100%, the display will light up and the chime will sound
- AirPods low battery status gets a new sound
- Trusting a computer now requires Touch ID on iPhone
