61. Better Battery Icon

Another small change: the appearance of the battery icon in the status bar has somewhat improved.

62. Power Down: A Third Way

Previously, you already could power down your iPhone with the Assistive Touch. However, the procedure is not very convenient (unless you have another use of Accessibility setting). But today we have a third way to perform the power down, which is right in the Settings menu.

63. An Alternative Restart

As it was mentioned in the description of the new Assistive Touch features, now there is a new and cool method to restart your iPhone. You can do it right on your screen not using the “power down – manual start” technique.

64. More Assistive Touch Options

There is a new Assistive Touch menu where you not only can restart your iPhone but also can enable Emergency SOS, access app switcher and use Apple Pay. In addition, you can start a Reachability mode.

65. iPhone: Automated Answering

Are you disturbed by unstoppable calls? The best remedy is automated answering. Now, your iPhone perfectly gives automated answers for you to save your time and optimistic attitude. To turn the function on you only have to complete a few steps in Accessibility settings.

66. Write to Siri if You Like

Typing in Siri is a long-expected feature that is finally at our service. And to use it, you have to change your Accessibility settings. But if you’re a fan of the old version just stick to a “Hey, Siri” command. Now, with both communication channels using Siri is even more full-fledged than before.
