As part of last October's release of Apple's iOS 10.1, users that attempted to use a 32-bit app on their updated devices were given a message warning them that doing so may cause their iPhone to slow down.

iOS 11 will be available as a free update to certain iPhones and iPads this fall. It will power Apple's upcoming smartphone iPhone 8.

If you have one of the older iPhone models, you'll either have to live with the bugs and glitches, or update to a newer version of the iPhone that benefits from the safety and software updates.

Apple intends to declutter your life and so it is starting off by organising all your files and folders and making search super easy. It is also going to be particularly useful for the new Files app, which is also available on the iPhone. Here's our hands on and walkthrough video of iOS 11. Now you can access the dock from any screen. You can even use the Apple TV as a speaker and control music from there using Siri.

Whereas Wi-Fi Sense automatically shares the Wi-Fi credentials with all your contacts, the Wi-Fi sharing feature in iOS 11 requires you to manually accept each iPhone and iPad that wants to connect to your network.

Apps can be viewed side by side without having to close or toggle between them.

Here is a rundown of the some of the best new features in iOS 11. "No really, why would you buy one?" As you'd expect, the tablet can support LTE networks, hence its upcoming T-Mobile availability. Siri will also come with a translation support (in beta) for five languages. Conversations can also be organized by the amount of storage space they use, and then be manually deleted.

With three months to go before being released, there is still plenty of time to add or remedy the "problems" of the iOS 11. Also, Live Photos will receive the new Bounce and Loop effects.

The announcement centred around some key features namely the ability for iPhone users to send payments to each other using iMessage and a new Do Not Disturb mode which stops people being distracted by their phone when driving.
