iPhone X and iPhone 8 will support FLAC audio, like the iPhone 7 with iOS 11

On the new iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus there is a codec that supports FLAC audio - a format for compressing audio data without loss. Owners of iPhone 7 will also be able to enjoy FLAC audio format when they update their devices to iOS 11.

Support for FLAC will be added to the latest iPhone models

Thanks to the codec (Free Lossless Audio Codec) FLAC audio sounds in the same good quality, in which it was recorded initially. The format compresses digital audio data without any loss. It can compress the file by 50-60%, and thus the sound quality will not get worse.

HomePod will not support FLAC, but in the future, Apple can add this feature with the system update. Analyst Dan Matt was the first to announce that the new models will support FLAC and that playing sounds in this format will not consume a lot of battery power.

In summer it became known that FLAC support will be added to some devices with the iOS 11 update, and now we know a little more about it. In the Audio section in the specifications of the iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and iPhone X appeared the point FLAC. Below you can see it on the screenshot.

iPhone FLAC support web

However, there is no support for FLAC in the technical characteristics of the iPad Pro.

In addition, the technical characteristics of the new models do not specify the formats AIFF and WAV, but, most likely, they are now included in the Linear PCM codec.

What about the iPad?

The fact that there will not be any FLAC support on the new iPad Pro is very interesting because they work on the same processor as the iPhone 7. Most likely, Apple decided not to add support for the format to devices that do not have a built-in decoder to save the duration charge the battery.

Decoding FLAC format consumes a lot of energy, and if they are dealt with by one system, the process will be too energy-intensive.

iOS 11 Files app playing FLAC audio iPhone

Audio in FLAC format could be played even on iPhone 6s with a beta version of iOS 11. But on iOS 11 GM iPhone 6s no longer plays sounds in this format, unlike iPhone 7. Apple has removed the system support for FLAC from older models.

While it is not clear what the system requirements for FLAC playback will be.

System requirements for FLAC

We can conclude that the FLAC codec requires the presence of the A10 processor and newer. In the future, more will be known about this. But why FLAC support will not be added to the latest iPad Pro? After all, they work on the A10 Fusion processor, which has even more cores than the iPhone 7. Perhaps the company will first add support for new phone models, and later it will reach the iPad Pro.

FLAC format will be inconvenient on iOS 11

For fans of good sounding, this news will seem good in any case.

But on iOS 11 audio in FLAC format will not be very convenient, because the only way to play it will be the Files application (or third-party applications like Vox or Plex).

If you use iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Box, Google Drive or other storage, you will be able to play FLAC audio directly in the Files application.

Unfortunately, Music on iOS 11 will not be able to play FLAC files.

iOS 11 AirDrop FLAC file iPhone

Perhaps in the future, Apple will expand the ability to play FLAC. For example, the company could add support for FLAC audio files of studio quality (16 and 24 bits) to the Music application and iTunes on the computer so we can synchronize these files on all of our devices.

So far, Apple does not sell FLAC music in the iTunes Store. On iOS and iTunes added support for their own codec Apple ALAC, but it was not popular among users.

Note that playing FLAC audio in Bluetooth headphones, AirPods or via AirPlay will still lose sound quality due to the transmission of audio AAC. To fully enjoy the music in FLAC format, it is best to use high-quality wired headphones.


In the postscript, to the update of iOS 11 about FLAC nothing is said, but usually, the company does not attach much importance to small details, so it does not mean anything.

In addition to supporting FLAC on iOS 11, you should not even doubt it. According to the video report from the conference, developers of 2017, on iOS 11 will be added two new popular audio formats - FLAC and Opus.

"As for FLAC, we will add support for codec, files, and playback," the video says. "For Opus, we will add codec and support for files."

macOS High Sierra supports FLAC audio format via third-party media players, which include VLC Media Player, WALTR and others.

iOS 11 will be released on Tuesday 19 September.

How to upgrade from iOS 11 GM to public release

Apple released the final version of iOS 11 in public, and some do not know how to upgrade from the Golden Master, which was released a week ago, to a public release.

The good news is that you do not have to do anything.

The fact is that both the iOS 11 Golden Master and the public release have the same build number: 15A372. Golden Master is essentially the final version of the system, ready for release. Unlike the steel beta version, iOS Golden Master has the same build number as the final version.

In other words, iOS 11 GM on your iPhone or iPad contains the same code as the official public release installed using the Software Update mechanism.

If you are a registered developer or a beta test participant, and you have iOS 11 GM installed, you do not need to do anything.

But if you want to continue to install the system updates, you need to delete the Apple developer profile from your device.

1)  Go to  Settings → General → Profile and click on the iOS Beta Software Profile.

2)  Now click  Delete profile and enter your password to confirm the solution.

The device will reboot.

In the future, you will not receive a beta update of the system from Apple, and any public updates to iOS 11 will appear on your device in the Software Update.

If you followed the instructions, you can safely continue to use iOS 11 GM, and soon in the Settings will update iOS 11, which you can install.

How to free up memory on your iPhone with iOS 11

In the past couple of years, Apple has begun to pay more attention to the problem with a lack of memory on the iPhone. Last year, the base version of the iPhone contained 32GB, and in this - already 64GB. But many of us still have phones with 16GB of memory. To help us, Apple continues to add features to iOS that help to free up memory.

How to free up memory on your iPhone with iOS 11

IOS 11 also has such features. The new version of the system uses the HEIF format for photos and HEVC for video. Both formats help save 50% of memory while retaining quality. In addition, iOS 11 has a whole section with recommendations for memory management. If your iPhone runs out of memory, try the tips below to free up memory on iPhone.

How to free up memory on iPhone with iOS 11

1. Automatically download applications

The first thing you should do is find the applications that you can remove. You can do this manually in Settings -> Basic  -> iPhone Storage (or iPad ). There you can see which applications take up the most memory.

iOS 11 can do this automatically. At the top of the iPhone Storage section, just enable the Unload unused function.

This function keeps track of which applications you use often, and which ones do not come in weeks/months. When iOS notices that the device is running out of memory (for example, while the 4K video is being recorded), the system automatically deletes applications that you have not used for a long time. The application itself is deleted, and you can download it again in one click. All your documents and data from this application will be saved on your device. When you re-download the application, they will be restored.

2. Follow the new recommendations in the repository

Open a new section of the  Recommendation in the iPhone Storage. There you will find tips on how to free up memory on your device. Here everything is listed: from deleting the attached files in iMessage to deleting old movies in iTunes.

3. Delete unnecessary photos and videos

Since the iPhone has excellent cameras, we all have the habit of taking too many photos. This is an excellent strategy for the photographer - the more pictures you take, the more chances to get a great photo. But the problem is that sometimes we forget to delete not very good photos. On one amazing photo in Instagram, there are 10 unsuccessful.

Flip through your photos and delete all unnecessary. You will surely find a few dozen photos or screenshots that you can delete, and free up several gigabytes.

4. Use the iCloud library or Google Photos library

When you delete unnecessary photos from the device, you will need to save the copies of the remaining ones, and then delete them as well. The best way to do this is with the iCloud Mediathek.

You can enable this function in Settings  ->  Photo. But, if you have more than 5GB of photos, you will need to buy an iCloud plan at 50GB / month for $ 0.99 / month.

When your photos are uploaded to iCloud, you can only store recent photos on your device. To do this, in the Photos section in Settings, select Storage optimization on the iPhone.

If you do not want to spend money on iCloud, you can download an unlimited number of photos for free in Google Photos (but they will be compressed). After uploading to Google Photos, you can also enable automatic deletion of photos from the device.

5. Uninstall application content

In the iPhone Storage section, you'll see which applications take up the most memory. In some cases, their data will be the cause. If you have downloaded movies in iTunes or Netflix, they continue to be stored on your device.

This applies to podcasts, audiobooks, etc.
How to take screenshots on iPhone X

You need to go into such applications and manually delete the downloaded files. If applications like Twitter or Facebook take up more than 1GB, you should delete them and reinstall them.

6. Clear the Safari cache

In Settings, go to the Safari section and click Clear history and site data. This will delete the entire history, cookie and cache from websites.

7. Remove the "live part" of Live  Photos

When you make Live Photo, you also save three seconds of video and audio. Live Photo is a great feature, but it's not very useful and takes up a lot of space.

Use the Lean application, which costs $ 1.99. Removing the "live part" from 4 photos can free up as much as 12MB. If you do this with a hundred photos, then easily release a couple of gigabytes.

8. Clear the folder with recently deleted photos

After you manually delete photos, do not forget to delete them from the Recently deleted folder. This is how you free up memory.

In the Photos app,   go to the Recently deleted album. Select all photos and delete them.

9. Automatically delete old messages

If you do not like to reread old messages, you can configure their automatic deletion. Go to Settings  ->  Messages  ->  Leave messages and select 30 days or  1 year.

10. Delete attachments to messages

Go to Messaging, click Edit, and delete the old dialogs that contain many files.

Or you can go into a specific dialog, click on the picture above and view all the attached files. Select a photo / video and click "delete".

11. Remove additional Siri voices

If you downloaded additional Siri voices unnecessarily, it would be nice to remove them. One voice can occupy up to 900MB.

Go to  Settings  ->  General  ->  Universal Access  ->  VoiceOVer  ->  Speech  and select an unnecessary voice.

Then click  Edit, swipe by voice and click  Remove.

12. Optimize the Apple Music store

If you use Apple Music, you can adjust how much memory your library will occupy.

Go to  Settings  ->  Music and select  Storage Optimization. You can choose from 4GB to 64GB (depending on the amount of memory on the device). When you reach the limit, iOS will start deleting music that you have not listened to for a long time.

13. Clear your iTunes cache

If you watch movies in iTunes, the application accumulates a cache. It is not visible to the user and can occupy up to several gigabytes. To clear the cache, you can restart the device. Hold down the Home and Sleep / Wake buttons (on the iPhone 7 it's the Volume Down + Sleep / Wake button) until the device reboots.

14. Disable automatic media download from WhatsApp

If you are in a group chat in WhatsApp, then you get a lot of videos and images. By default, WhatsApp downloads all files and saves them to you in Photos. Go to Settings -> Chats and calls and turn off the Save incoming files function.

15. Try downloading a huge application or movie

This method may not work for you. If you run out of memory, go to the App Store and download the application that takes up more memory than is available on your device. The same can be done by downloading movies in HD from iTunes.

When you do this, iOS will automatically clear the cache and unnecessary files to free up memory. After a while, cancel the download.

Coming soon: storing messages in iCloud

This feature is not yet available on iOS 11, but we expect to receive it in a couple of weeks with the update of iOS 11.1. The iMessages feature in iCloud will automatically download all of your messages to the vault. You can delete old dialogs from your device without losing the data. When you enter the dialog, messages will instantly be downloaded from iCloud. If you have been using your device for several years, messages can take up to 5GB of memory.
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Control on iOS 11 are not turned off completely

Last option: reset device settings

If the "System" takes up too much memory, there is an option to reset the device. Go to Settings  ->  General  ->  Reset and select  Erase content and settings.

Jailbreak Electra RC1 with Cydia for iOS 11 will be released only for developers

Yesterday the release date of the long-awaited Cydia update for iOS 11 became known , which was very encouraging for many users.
Jailbreak Electra RC1 with Cydia for iOS 11 will be released only for developers
Unfortunately, later the developer coolstar wrote that the jailbreak Electra RC1 with Cydia for iOS 11 will be released only for developers.
He explained his decision this way:
The version of Electra RC1 will initially be available only for developers Publicly it will be released only when the third-party component files are updated.
So far, all the files from the saurik repository and many third-party Cydia files that depend on daemon do not work with iOS 11. Accordingly, the update will only be available to developers until we prepare all the tools.
Coolstar also appealed to jailbreak developers like Ryan Petrik - creator of popular Activator tweaks and others - to speed up this process. The decision to release Cydia only after all the files have been updated is correct. Otherwise, users will have too many problems with the tool. The release for developers will give them time to update their Tweaks.
Coolstar shared its progress by publishing screenshots of the files downloaded and installed via Cydia.
Nothing was said directly, but most likely, the Electra jailbreak with Cydia for iOS 11 will not be released on February 15, as expected. When this all the same happens, we will certainly let you know. Join Telegram-chat where we discuss everything connected with jailbreak.

Application updates to support new iOS features 11

iOS only 11 will be released publicly on September 19, but now began to appear upgrade applications that support the new system function. So far, the number of used functions included augmented reality and Drag and Drop.

September 12 after Apple released the conference for iOS developers 11, watchOS 4, tvOS 11 and macOS High Sierra, so that they had time to prepare to update their applications.

One of the main functions of iOS 11 - Augmented reality ARKit, and in the future more and more applications will use. Some, of course, are more useful than others. And some applications will add little minor features to simply test the technology.

At the moment, Drag and Drop feature added to the app Bear, support for augmented reality in Carrot to Weather, and the application One Drop Now visualize data about your activity.


The Lite PCCalc added an interactive mode, which looks more like a demo technology demonstration than a useful feature. You can throw icons PCCalc bananas throughout the room. In addition, you can add lighting, adjust the form and view model objects.

Carrot Weather also uses augmented reality. Now you can view the application in 3D, change modes, be running across the screen left and right, etc. If you note in the "eye" on the screen, he starts yelling at you, and if you podnesote phone too close, he will ask to respect his private space. The perfect application with the weather, certainly, was even better.

Update Cydia and Substrate for iOS 11 / 11.1.2 is on the way

Recently, in the field of jailbreaking so much activity that it is difficult to follow all the news. Constantly go out and announce new tools that support various devices with different firmware.
Update Cydia and Substrate for iOS 11

However, one thing we know for sure - upgrading Cydia and Substrate with support for iOS 11 has still failed. For now. Soon this may change.
Jay Freeman, the creator of Cydia, already wrote that he was going to release an update with support for iOS 11. Of course, he did not tell any exact dates, like other reliable sources.
However, we take the risk that the Cydia update will be released very soon.
Earlier, Jay Freeman admitted that he was working with his old teamIf you go to, you will see that the date of the debs folder changed from 2017 to January 4, 2018. This file has not changed for a long time until this point. Perhaps some changes have already been made, and they relate to the Cydia and Substrate updates for iOS 11.
For now, these are just assumptions, and they do not mean anything. However, we have waited so much time for updates to be released, which is even encouraging for the slightest hope. As usual, you just have to wait. We will tell you if there is any news.

What to do if iOS 11 quickly discharges the battery

Have you noticed that after iOS 11 you have to put the phone on charge more often than before? Well, you're not alone. Around the world, hundreds of users complain about a similar problem - and we have picked up for you several ways that will help fix it.

First of all, I want to note that the problems with the battery area rather blurry concept. There are many possible causes of this phenomenon, so for the correct "treatment", you will have to find out what exactly is the case in your case.


Often we are looking for a reason not where it really is. Perhaps, simultaneously with the transition to iOS 11, you installed some "voracious" application, which was the reason for the rapid discharge of the battery? Check it out quite simply. In the settings, select "Battery". There are listed all the applications and what kind of participation they took in discharging the device in the last 24 hours or 3 days.

Bugs found in iOS 11

One of the items is called Lock and "Home", so you can track if too much of the charge is spent by the operating system.

Try to determine which application is spending too much battery. It will not necessarily be the program with the greatest expense. Applications that you use almost constantly have high percentages quite justifiably. But the program you ran once for several minutes, eating 20% of the charge, looks like an alarm bell. The best solution is to simply delete such an application. If this is not possible, forcibly close it after each use so that it does not plant the battery while working in the background.

Background Update

Multitasking in iOS allows applications to update content even when they are not used, but are open. Although Apple did a lot of work to optimize this process and it reflected as little as possible on the battery life of the devices, some unfinished applications can expend a large amount of charge in this way.

The good news is that this feature is disabled. Select in the "Basic" settings, then "Background application update". There, set the slider opposite the item of the same name to the off position - and you're done!


Another important "item of expenditure" in the life of the battery. During installation, applications often ask us for access to certain functions of the device - including geolocation. So it will be useful to look at the list of applications that receive and use data about the location of the device: perhaps you will find there a lot of interesting things.

The best way is to disable access to geolocation at once to all applications. But this is possible only if you do not use cartographic services such as Apple Maps or Google Maps and do not want photographs taken to indicate where they were taken.

If you can not do without a navigator, you will have to disable access to the location selectively. First of all, disable Facebook - in terms of geolocation this social network is incredibly voracious. If you accidentally deny access to the application that it needs for normal operation, do not worry - the next time it starts, it will automatically prompt you to activate geolocation again.

Energy Saving Mode

Back in iOS 9 was introduced a mode of reduced energy consumption. Usually, it gives an additional 2-3 hours of battery life, which is more than not bad. To activate it, go to the "Battery" settings menu, where you need to select "Low Power Mode".

In this mode, the system automatically disables background application updates, automatic downloads, and some non-key visual enhancements. The offer to enable this mode appears along with the notification that you have 20% of the battery remaining, and it repeats if this number is up to 10%.

Quality of cellular communication

If you find in a place where there is a bad connection or there is no coverage of LTE, a reasonable action will be to turn it off and use 3G. Select "Cellular"> "Data settings"> "Voice and data" in the settings and switch from LTE to 3G or, if necessary, 2G.

Put the iPhone screen down

Since the iPhone is able to track when the screen is down, this can be used to save battery consumption. If you do not need to view the new notification, put the device in this way - then the screen will not turn on every time you receive a new response to Twitter or you will receive a VKontakte message. In this way, you can save up to an hour of battery life.

Full Discharge

Apple recommends at least once a month to run the iPhone through a full discharge cycle. Charge it to 100% and do not charge until the device is discharged before shutdown. If you have not done this for a long time, it is possible that the reason for your problem is precisely this.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Control on iOS 11 are not turned off completely

Many have noticed that disabling Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, click Control on iOS 11 does not disable them completely. To disable the function, you need to enter the settings, which is not very convenient.

Apple has confirmed that it should be. When you disable Bluetooth and Wi-Fi in paragraph 11 Management on iOS, they are not turned off completely. The device is simply disconnected from the Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth accessories, but it continues to work with AirDrop, AirPlay, Apple Pencil, Apple Watch, etc.

How to roll back from iOS 11 to iOS 10.3.3

Apple explained the work functions in his new paper:

Disconnecting from the network Wi-Fi access.

When Wi-Fi access is disabled, auto-connect to the network is also turned off as long as:

  • You turn Wi-Fi access in Manage.

  • You are not connected to a network Wi-Fi access in Settings.

  • You will not go to another place.

  • Do not come 5 am local time.

  • You do not restart your device.

Disconnecting from the accessory Bluetooth.

When Bluetooth is off, you can not connect to accessories Bluetooth as long as:

  • You do not enable Bluetooth in paragraph Office.

  • You are not currently connected to a Bluetooth accessory in Settings.

  • Do not come 5 am local time.

  • You do not restart your device.

If you want to completely turn off the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, you will need to do this in Settings.

This unusual innovation, but it is logical to connect to the Apple Watch and Apple Pencil.
