CAIRO (Reuters) – Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said on Monday his government would keep up a blockade of Qatar by four Arab states over charges it supports terrorism, in defiance of international efforts to end the crisis.
Campaigners blocked the road outside a police station and chanted “no justice, no peace”.
Apple seeded the fourth beta of iOS 11 to developers this morning, bringing some of the most significant changes we’ve seen yet in an iOS 11 beta.
A much-desired swipe feature for clearing Notifications on the Lock screen has been added, and there are also several visual tweaks to icons throughout the operating system. We’ve outlined all of the changes in both the video and the post below.
There’s also a new icon for Contacts in the Settings app, while the Notes and Reminders icons in Settings remain the same.
– Notification Center – You can now swipe to the left on a Notification on the Lock screen to bring up options to clear it or view it. Tapping on view or tapping on the Notification itself also brings up a new screen that instructs you to use Touch ID to unlock your device to open the associated app.
In addition to tapping on an icon or using the view option to open it, a Notification will also open if you slide to the right. A full slide to the left automatically clears a Notification without having to tap the clear button.
– Settings (Capacity) – In the General section of the Settings app, when you choose “About,” the Capacity listing now shows the total amount of storage a device possesses rather than the amount of storage available minus the size of iOS.
– Settings (AirDrop) – In the Settings app under General, there’s now a dedicated section for AirDrop that allows it to be toggled off, set to everyone, or limited to contacts. Previously, only the Control Center could be used to change these settings.
– Settings (Accounts & Passwords) – In the Accounts & Passwords section of the Settings app, the key icon is now vertically oriented instead of displayed horizontally.
– WiFi icon – The WiFi icon in the upper left hand of the display that shows when you’re connected to a WiFi network has been slightly tweaked with thicker, more uniform lines.
– App Store – There’s now an option to pull downwards to refresh the App Store’s Updates tab.
iOS 11 beta 4 is currently limited to developers, but Apple will likely introduce the changes in a third public beta that we expect to see later this week.
