Yes, I know that iOS 11 is rumored to be coming next month. Still, I've been disappointed with the direction of iOS. It feels to me like they fail to follow through. My pet peeve is how they treat audiobooks.

Two things are broken with regards to audiobooks. First, the old playlist functionality is gone, which is especially important when listening in a car. I'm sure that Apple's solution was for everyone to get carplay, but when it became obvious that car makers were not buying in, they should have fixed it rather than say "buy a new car with carplay, loser". The second is that how audiobooks are treated is very different between the mac and the ios devices. If they are going to go with audiobooks in iBooks on the iOS devices, they should have gone with audiobooks in iBooks in iOS as well. For a company that prides itself on usability, that's a glaring deficiency.

So far, the only major enhancement that has meant anything to me is being able to hand off phone calls between my various apple devices. That is way cool.
