iOS 11 Will Support Finger-Detecting Dynamic Keyboard

The next Apple OS will be supporting a keyboard that works like magic. There’s an Apple patent for dynamic keyboard positioning on touchscreen. It means when you place your fingers over the touchscreen the keyboard will automatically appear and position itself according to where your fingers lay.

Apple patent detecting where your fingertips lay is titled ‘Finger hover detection for improved typing’ and it defines the concept in which typing “is improved by dynamically and automatically positioning the desired home-row keys of an onscreen keyboard below the user’s fingers while their fingers are hovering above the surface, thus reducing the need for the user to look at the onscreen keyboard while typing”.

The patent falls in line with the rumours that Apple’s next iPhone will sport a bezel-less edge-to-edge design. A Finger-detecting dynamic keyboard would be an ideal choice for a phone such as this. The mobile operating system will take the world by storm.

The world’s most popular operating system was created and developed by Apple and is exclusively available for their own products like iPhone, iPad. iOS ranks right after the second most popular operating system by Google called Android. The first generation iOS was launched with iPhone in 2007 and later it was extended into other devices like iPod Touch and iPad. As of January 2017, all together Apple’s App Store has over 2.2 million iOS apps, and these have been downloaded for over 130 billion times. Now’s that the kind of popularity iOS enjoys.

Apple iOS 11 Keyboard

The iOS will be compatible with all devices that run on iOS 10 as well as devices that the going to be launched. Those include, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, as well as the iPhone that’ll be launched this year, i.e. iPhone 7S or iPhone 8 or iPhone X (whatever it’s named). Besides the iPhone, iOS 11 should be compatible to iPad Air 1, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 9.7-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch; iPad mini 3, iPad mini 4 and the iPod touch (sixth generation).

Some rumours suggest that the iOS 11 will arrive with a couple of improvements on Siri. For instance, it’ll be a more natural sounding Siri, unlike the mechanical one’s that we keep hearing. This will make the phone more personal and users will feel they are interacting with an actual person rather than an AI. As per reports the company is currently pull off secret operations at their office at 90 Hills Road, Cambridge.

Another very useful feature the iOS 11 is going to sport is a dark mode. It is designed for an easier viewing at night. This’ll be a pretty trendy as well as useful thing to have in the next OS. We are pretty sure the iOS 11 will have this feature because back when Apple rolled out iOS 10 beta 1, there a dark mode already existed. But the feature remained unlocked. So its nit difficult to believe that there’ll be a night mode in iOS 11.

The iOS 11 is rumoured to launch along with iPhone 8 in September 2017. Whatever, Apple means to offer with iOS 11, it’s bound to take the world by storm and make it loyalties very satisfied.
