IOS 11 Update Now Available For iPhones And iPads

Apple says the iOS 11 will be available sometime on September 19.

So if your favourite app stops working when iOS 11 is released, you should probably blame the person who built it, rather than Apple. This is around 10.30 PM IST for users based in India.

The new update in now available for iPhone and iPad users around the world, and promises a lot of new features like Augmented reality, a more humanlike Siri, and new whistles and bells in the Camera app. Users should get a notification in their device alerting them of the new update if they are connected to the internet.

After months of waiting Apple's iOS 11 update is finally here.

You have to download iTunes and to install it if it has not there on your computer. We'll explain that step below.

It's worth noting that to avoid any issues Apple always advises backing up your iPhone or iPad before installing any new updates. However, if you still own the iPhone 4S, 5, or 5C you will not get the iOS 11 update anymore from Apple. While the upcoming iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X will come preloaded with iOS 11, the new version will be pushed to iPhones starting from the iPhone 5s. It is also compatible with the iPad mini 4, 3, and 2-but not the original iPad mini. The general availability of iOS 11 comes several days after the Gold Master (GM) was made available for beta testers. So in order to make it easier for you, we compiled top 10 features of the iOS 11.

The iOS 11 update starts rolling out today at 6PM here in the UK. Once the device appears in iTunes, select the device, click Summary - Check for Update - Download - Update.

There's also the option of plugging in the iOS device into a Mac, and updating via iTunes. Plan to plug your phone into power for the update, and for the download to take quite some time - as much as 30 minutes to an hour, depending on your connection. Just keep in mind to back up your data before you install the new OS. This is set to change with iOS 11. And those were the oldest generation of Apple phone and tablets to support iOS 10. The highlight is the improved Live Photos app that now lets you choose any of the snaps as your primary photo.

Apple Maps has introduced indoor mapping for a range of places, such as Heathrow Airport and shopping centres worldwide.

The most visible change is the new Control Center with customizable shortcuts (at least some of them).
