When Apple's next operating system, iOS 11, premieres this fall, it will come loaded with new Siri features that could be helpful for travelers going overseas. Besides playing music, Apple's Siri digital assistant will also respond to requests for information and other help around the house.

It's also the place where you can customize your favorite apps and see those apps you've used the most - including those on iPhone and Mac when applicable.

To further enhance user experience of iOS 11, Digiarty Software, a dedicated multimedia software developer, immediately performs test and updates its flagship iOS iPhone iPad transfer software WinX MediaTrans to support new iOS 11.
