Even if you're not planning to upgrade to one of the new iPhones, you can still get the new operating system today - and it's packed with features. It may take longer on Tuesday when other iPhone and iPad users rush to get it immediately. There's also a slightly more complicated way that you might also want to try - one that involves your desktop or laptop computer. As part of setting up iOS 11, you may also be asked to sign in with your Apple ID.
Now may not be the best time to update devices because smartphone updates have a history of buggy launches.
Storage optimisation: Gone will be the days where your iPhone's storage is clogged with apps and data you never use.
Will your iPhone/iPad get the update?
The company did not make a version of the new iOS, dubbed iOS 11, for the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, or fourth-generation iPad.
iOS 11 was announced in June at the firm's WWDC developers conference and, since then, it's only been available as a beta test version. In iOS 11, it's back to a single consolidated window and it has an entirely new look with bubble-style icons. In the iPad especially, iOS finally looks like it belongs as earlier the fonts used to look just too small for tablet's large screen.
So before you install iOS 11, you need to check that all your favourite apps are still going to work. In the iPad, Apple has integrated the app switcher and control center into one seamless unit.
After years of a severe lack of malleability, you can now customize a device's Control Center to suit your workflow or usage habits.
Siri uses on-device learning to deliver more personal experiences and offers suggestions based on personal usage of Safari, News, Mail, Messages and more. Apple's iOS 11 that runs on iPhone, iPad and iPod devices will feature a new interface, AR functions, and enhanced camera along with entirely revamped App store. Users will be able to easily drag and drop files, texts and images between split-view apps on the screen and the Apple Pencil will now have deeper integration, allowing for "Instant Notes" when tapping the pencil on the iPad display from the lock screen. That said, if you are using an older device, such as an iPhone 5s or even an iPhone 6, you might want to wait and see if other users might be experiencing issues. Not doing so can lead to problems during the download and installation process. How many of you are now running an iOS device? Once again, please do backup your device before proceeding.
