The App Store is getting a redesign for the first time in years with this version of iOS.

While the supported devices for iOS 11 range back three or so years, if your device is more than two generations old, you may be better off not updating. Now in beta, the update comes packed with new features, giving the users a new and improved Siri voice assistant and more.

For those of us out on the west coast of North America, we pretty much get a full day to play with iOS 11.

Simply open up the camera, swipe up from anywhere and the filters will appear.

Apple iOS 11 will bring improvements to photos as well. You can add in shortcuts like Alarm, Low Power Mode, quick access to Notes and an Apple TV remote. But today, Apple officially confirmed in a press release that the peer-to-peer payment system would be coming in a later update to iOS 11 and watchOS 4, which should then be released sometime this fall. If you want to attach a picture to your email, just drag and drop the picture from your album.

What makes this even better is that it'll intelligently know where the paper is and only snap that sheet. No iPhone X? There will still be new Emojis released including an exploding head, a starstruck person, a sandwich as well as T-Rex.


As iPhones get bigger, it becomes harder and harder to type with one hand. With iOS 11, there's also a another reason to clear the decks; a bunch of old apps are going to stop working.

This is available anywhere the keyboard is present, just hold the "emoji" icon and choose between shifting it to the left or the right. The general availability of iOS 11 comes several days after the Gold Master (GM) was made available for beta testers. When making an in-app purchase, users will automatically be taken to the app page or game to finish up. Articles you read, search engine terms, messages, it will all be up for grabs. With the new update, you can now edit that little video.

Apple has added some interesting features to Live Photos like a loop to turn a live photo in a video loop, bounce and long exposure to capture the elements of time and movement.

Apple is set to launch its latest software upgrade, the iOS11, on September 19, 2017.

The dark horse of this update is arguably ARKit, which will have some at-launch app support.

If you have iCloud Backup already turned on in your settings (you can check this in the iCloud menu after tapping your Apple ID), your phone should already be backed up to the cloud.
