10. No Twitter or Facebook Integration
iOS 11 removes native integration for Facebook and Twitter. You can’t just sign in with those accounts in Settings. If you were used to sharing things on Twitter without actually installing the Twitter app, those days are over.
The only workaround is that you’ll need to install the Twitter and Facebook apps. If you can’t stand the official apps, try using a third party app like Tweetbot and use their share sheet extensions to share things to Twitter.
11. Podcasts App Changes Podcast Management
In iOS 11, there’s a whole new redesign of the Podcasts app. It’s similar to the Apple Music design language. Which means everything is bigger. Tabs and sections are reorganized as well. There’s no Top Charts section anymore. It’s integrated into the new Browse section.
When you tap on the episode from Listen Now queue, it won’t just start playing. You’ll see a detailed view, and then a Play button. This kind of two-step UI is spread across the whole app.
If you can’t stand the Podcasts app, there’s not much you can do other than to switch to a third party client. Our recommendation is to try the free and feature-rich Overcast app. It comes with Smart Speed and Speed Boost feature. You should also try out Pocket Casts and Castro.
