See, if you buy a new iPhone or iPad running iOS 11, simply bring it close to your older device that is signed in with your Apple ID along with Bluetooth and WiFi turned on. iOS 11 will ask you to pair the two devices together (which is easy by the way), and things are taken off from there. Apple Health collects its information in two ways: through its own Global Positioning System and motion sensors, which can detect steps taken and a few activities; and it collects the rest through third-party apps, including some that connect with your fitness watch.

Click on enroll your iOS device. If you want to take advantage of Apple Health, it's worth investing in a fitness watch that can be paired with the app ' but remember, it's doesn't have to connect with Apple Health to be iPhone compatible.

In this week's episode of The iPhone Show, I inspect iOS 11, looking for hidden clues about the next iPhone. At WWDC, the company announced its new ARKit, a developer platform for creating AR apps that can tap into the iPhone's camera and processing power.

You can check out the new iOS 11 features and how iOS 11 vs iOS 10 compare in the slides below.

For those unaware, a similar method of setting up is now available if you bought a brand new Apple TV 4. Apple ramps up the options in the iOS 11 update with tweaks and new features for iMessages.

iMessages continue to be one of the biggest iPhone and iPad features that Apple offers. This is also a good time to get familiar with iOS 11 beta problems.

There is a new iMessage App Drawer so that it is easier to find the apps you want while you are in an iMessage conversation.

That said, if it does point to FLAC support on iPhones, could it also mean Apple is contemplating lossless audio elsewhere?

According to user "atm153" on Reddit, "throw some FLACs in iCloud Drive. and you can play them back directly on the device in Files".
