However, at present, there is nothing for iPhone users immediately worry about.

New security feature in iOS 11 will allow users to temporarily disable Touch ID, quickly call 911 — The latest beta release of iOS 11 includes a new security feature, with a few button presses making it impossible to unlock your phone with Touch ID, as well as giving a quick option to dial 911. Here’s how to use it. iOS 11 will also introduce a new Smart Invert viewing mode, which you can see in this video. It intelligently inverts all screen colours except for those in displayed media, such as photos, videos, and icons.
