What other features you are expecting in iOS 11?

So what do you think about iOS 11 and its new features. Are they compelling enough for you? Do you think there’s still something missing from iOS 11 which you require and Apple should add it in? iOS today is getting more and more “blend-in”, adopting desktop OS functionalities but that’s the good thing about Apple, they just don’t adopt it straight away, but make it always mobile first, good performance yet great battery life and as user friendly as possible.
I think feature-wise iOS 11 is going to be great, although there’s still a few features I’m expecting iOS can do it such as renaming and resizing photos as I need those features to enable me to post blog posting (such as writing this article) directly from iOS devices (iPhone or iPad) without the help from computer (in which today I still need a computer help to resize and rename photos).
