Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) is set to launch its newest and perhaps revolutionary series of iPhones on Tuesday. This release marks the 10-year anniversary of the smartphone that changed the world, and with this we can expect a few other surprises from Apple.
However, ahead of the release there was a leak in regards to the newest iPhone operating system (iOS) and it gave some insight to what we can expect from this soon-to-be trillion-dollar company.
24/7 Wall St. has taken a look at some of these new features and what they could mean for this new generation of iPhone.
For starters, Apple redesigned its Control Center, which allows users quick access to apps and settings they use the most. The format is now more customizable for a more personalized user experience.
Siri also received a big update as well. The voice-activated assistant now has a more realistic voice and improved processing. Not to mention, Siri is also able to translate multiple languages, including French, Spanish, German and Chinese.
Apple’s App Store is also seeing a change. This has been a playground for developers making any and every conceivable app, and now this is getting a face-lift. Along with a redesigned format in the new iOS, the App Store will be an app that users actually will want to browse through, as opposed to somewhere they go searching for an app.
Apple Music has taken on a new appeal. Instead of just being an online streaming service, Apple Music is now more of a social network where users can share their playlists or ask for suggestions. This is somewhat reminiscent of other online streamers like Spotify or SoundCloud.
Probably the safest innovation in the new iOs is the Do Not Disturb feature. This feature comes alive when users are driving, and helps to prevent users from texting or receiving notifications while driving.
Everyone is waiting in anticipation for what other features Apple will release in its unveiling on Tuesday.
Shares of Apple were last seen at $161.20, with a consensus analyst price target of $171.95 and a 52-week range of $104.08 to $164.94.
