The cool new stuff you're about to download

Apple TV App

Spotify-like social features have been added to Apple Music, HomeKit can now control smart speakers via AirPlay 2, machine learning enables new features in Siri and smart curation of "Memories" in Photos, and the Control Center has been redesigned for efficiency.

With iOS 11, you get a truckload of new features but you also lose some pretty useful things.

If, while updating your phone to iOS 11, you've run into problems, here's how to solve them.

I have a couple of apps on my iPhone 7 which are no longer being updated by the developers but which work just fine.

Other than Tuesday, September 19, though Apple has not announced when iOS 11 will have available to download, based on experience, we can expect the update to become available at 10:30 pm IST. If you're on the developer beta and want to stop receiving builds, you can uninstall the configuration profile by going to Settings - General - Profile - iOS Beta Software Profile - Remove Profile.

Have you heard the news about iOS 11 officially being released yesterday? It released the iPhone 5 and the fourth-generation iPad in 2012 and the iPhone 5c in 2013.

As expected, Apple has begun rolling iOS 11 out to iPhones and iPads today in most regions. The three "How-to" videos show you how to retouch a photo, how to copy and paste across devices, and how to magically convert handwritten notes to type and share them.

iOS updates often catch out many users who don't have enough storage left on their device to complete the switch.

If you can't update or restore your device with recovery mode, or you can't use recovery mode because of broken buttons, contact Apple Support.

This means that any app that's still written using the older protocol has not been updated in more than two years, suggesting the apps due to be given the boot are no longer being supported anyway. You'll need about 2GB of space. All you have to do is to plug your phone to PC via USB, open iTunes and navigate to Backup Now, under your device settings.

When users get paid, they receive the money in their new Apple Pay Cash card in Apple Wallet and can use the money instantly.

If you need these new features, go ahead and upgrade.
