#4 Screen Recording

#3 Better Storage Management
The IOS 11 will introduce a feature that will automatically delete apps you barely use, which is quite handy if you are running out of storage.
Apple will also introduce better compression formats for your photos and videos. Your videos will be stored in HEVC format instead of H.264, while your photos will be stored as HEIF (.heic) instead of JPEGs (.jpg). These formats require half the storage space, while maintaining the same quality.

#2 File Manager
Before, you had to jailbreak your device to get a decent file manager on your iPhone. As per Apple, IOS 11 will come with a file manager on board, aptly named “Files”. This has been a much requested feature from Apple, as the competing OS has integrated file managers from the get go. It will also integrate with cloud based storage services like Google Drive for easier file management, offline or online.
