iOS 11 includes many brand-new features and enhancements across a variety of frameworks:
Apple has introduced architecture updates, new visual changes, and an updated iTunes Connect process for iOS 11. Use this guide to make sure your Xamarin.iOS app is prepared for the new release.
ARKit brings Augmented Reality to iOS, allowing users to interact with the the world through the device's camera. With Xamarin you can also use ARKit with UrhoSharp.
Machine learning models can be integrated into iOS 11 apps with CoreML. The CoreML framework provides simple API to incorporate existing models into app projects, to allow problems to be analyzed right in the app.

On iPad you can drag both within and between different apps; while on iPhone you can only drag within the same app. There is support for many types of customization, including rich data types, animations, and handling multitouch gestures.
MapKit has a number of improvements, including support for automatic marker grouping and adding a compass to the view.
