Apple launches iOS 11, bringing augmented reality to the masses

The new storage tool in iOS 11's settings will "offload" apps you never use off of your phone, and will also ask if you'd like to store old iMessage conversations in the Cloud. This is also one of the biggest features coming to iOS 11, and it is now available since iOS 11 officially released yesterday.

Apple has finally released the iOS 11 update for iPhone and iPad users all over the world.

iOS 11 will ship with ARKit support, meaning developers can start releasing quality augmented reality apps for the iPhone and iPad.

Lastly, Apple TV owners can expect some minor improvements as well, such as automatic dark mode based on local time, Home screen syncing for keeping different Apple TVs across the house synced, AirPods support, AirPlay 2 and more. Here you'll find a section that says software update and you'll find the latest watchOS there to download ready to install.

Though the update itself brings a number of changes to the platform, iOS 11 also marks the official end of 32-bit apps on iPhones and iPads. Among the "hidden" new capabilities described today in Business Insider: the ability to transfer settings from one device to another; customize the appearance of the Control Center; share personal WiFi hotspots with others via Bluetooth; and record on-screen images via a built-in screen recorder. Meanwhile, here is a quick look at how to download and install iOS 11 (OTA and iTunes).

"These apps deliver high-quality AR experiences using the built-in camera, powerful processors and motion sensors in iOS devices".

The first step is to ensure your new phone is running iOS 11.

Users with an Outlook.com, Office 365, or Exchange 2016 email account may not be able to send emails using the default Mail app in iOS 11.

Newer devices will be able to run the new operating system. This is set to change with iOS 11. All you have to do is tell Siri "Play something that I like" and it will play your favorite tunes.

Apple's App Store has always been a strong revenue generator for the company - in the past nine months it brought in US$21.5 billion, notching a 19% over the previous year.

Once you are done with the installation process of iTunes' latest version to your PC, you are good to go with the process. And iOS originally had a 10 MB limit, if you want to consider how far we've come.

iOS 11 will work on the iPhone 5s and later.

You can also automatically upload your library of photos to your iCloud so you can delete them from the phone without losing them.
