Apple has just rolled out the first public beta of iOS 11, the latest version of its iOS mobile operating system. As a public beta, it is now made available for free downloading by basically any iOS mobile user, with people not needing a developer account (which costs about a hundred bucks) to acquire it.
Due to the fact that Apple has regularly been announcing new versions of its iOS mobile operating system at its yearly Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), it comes as no surprise that the iPhone maker has recently unveiled iOS 11 during the said conference this year. Of course, the wide release version of iOS 11 will likely be made available later this year (probably in September).
Google unveiled some pretty awesomestuff during this year’s I/O developer conference. But perhaps the coolest one is Google Lens, which can be described as a sort of software platform that can basically read text and even identify objects either from an image or through the view of a camera sensor.

Apple is now deploying iOS 10.3 -- the latest update to its iOS mobile operating system -- to iPhone and iPad tablet devices. As expected, this new roll out will come with a number of enhancements. Interestingly, the tech giant has decided to utilize the iOS 10.3 update as a means for swapping the iPhone’s and iPad’s underlying file system from the previous HFS+ file format to the new Apple File System. In other words, the company is basically upgrading how its devices are saving and managing data.
