Apple iOS 11 could make MILLIONS of people's iPhone 5 totally obsolete

In addition to the four-year-old products becoming obsolete, the change means some older apps and games that are only 32-bit will stop working on devices running iOS 11.

Apple's updates to its text and communication features include a redesign to the iMessages app drawer to make apps and stickers more accessible to users.

Arguably the biggest feature Apple didn't discuss is the giving developers and users access to the NFC technology in iPhones.

President Macron Seeks Majority as France Votes for New Parliament
Le Pen was defiant when interviewed by AFP this week, saying: "We will be the only opposition force". That appears unlikely, given French voters' disaffection with traditional parties.

We already know that some of the new iOS 11 features will not come to all of these devices.

Apple executive Craig Federighi made the announcement Monday at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California. By saying, "Hey Siri, I like this song", the HomePod and Apple Music become the flawless musicologist, learning preferences from hundreds of genres and moods, across tens of thousands of playlists, and these music tastes are shared across devices. By embedding Siri, users can make specific demands like sending a text message and summarizing a news report. Apple's navigation app is also getting an upgrade and will now be able to display floorplan-level maps within malls and airports for detailed navigation assistance.

Apple will begin auto filling passwords for apps, not just websites in Safari.

Apple has announced the HomePod, a breakthrough wireless speaker for the home that delivers unbelievable audio quality and uses spatial awareness to sense its location in a room and automatically adjust the audio.

iOS 11 is available as a beta for developers now, and a public beta is coming in July.

For example, independent music stores like Bandcamp tend to offer albums in both MP3 and FLAC formats.
