That's because yesterday Apple made the golden master build of iOS 11 available to developers and public beta testers ahead of its official launch on September 19.

The iPhone 8 will be released on September 22 and the iPhone X will be released on November 3 for general sale. Unlike previous iterations, the new App Store for iOS 11 devices will be more editorial than before and focuses on having users discover new and popular apps.

This means that if you want access to it today, all you need to do is sign up to the beta program.

The new iOS will also support more advanced apps created using Apple's recently unveiled augmented reality framework, ARKit. After that, download a profile to your iOS device and restart it.

The nice thing about this method is that if you do come across a showstopping bug, it's possible for you to roll back to iOS 10.

A new report published this morning states that Apple's iOS11 being released later this month, will introduce new features that won't be able to run on models such as the iPhone 5 or older.

You can make skin tones more natural, portraits more expressive and the photo file size will be halved.

Which is to say, you won't anymore.

New AirPlay 2 will allow you to control your home audio system and speakers in your house from your iPhone.

Apple removes App Store from iTunes 12.7. Ringtones are gone too, but that's because you can simply redownload them on your iPhone or iPad via the iOS App Store, without even connecting to a PC or Mac.

By just holding one Apple product such as a iPhone or iPad near each other they can sign in on the Apple ID automatically, taking your personal settings, preferences and content as quick as a flash.
