1- Easily Share WiFi Passwords.
In iOS 11 it is now a lot easier to get a WiFi password of any given network. You just have to find someone who is already connected to the same network and just hold your iPhone or iPad close to other person’s device using the same network and password will be transferred instantly. I think its a great idea, now you don’t have write or ask every time while connecting to any WiFi network. Just find an iOS device using the same WiFi network and you are done.
2- Redesigned Volume Indicator
Like me, I think each one of you would have been annoyed with the translucent volume control box, that used to pop up in the middle of the screen while changing the volume on your iPhone or iPad. But not more, the good new is that Apple has changed the volume control box looks and position on the screen to the right top corner, which I think is quite a good improvement of the iOS 11.

Bought a new iPhone or iPad and want to import everything from your older iPhone to the new one? iOS 11 is here to help you out.
