IOS 11 Is Out: What You Need To Know

When Apple announced iOS 11 at WWDC this year, it promised the ability to take pictures using the HEIF format and videos in HEVC. This is also one of the biggest features coming to iOS 11, and it is now available since iOS 11 officially released yesterday. But we expect it to open a floodgate of new AR applications and features across the iOS app ecosystem. Those new features will make the iPhone feel a little different, but it's actually the iPad that benefits most from iOS 11.

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. In order to install the latest Apple iOS, all you need to do is go to "Settings" tab on your device, then go to the "About" section and click on "Software Update".

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

Brand new Control Center: Control Center has a new design so that it sits on a single screen instead of two or three swiping panels. The iOS 11 brings a new safety advantage and blocks all notifications from popping up on the lock screen as soon as the device detects you are driving.

Apple iOS 11 was released at 10.00 AM Pacific Time yesterday, which is around 10.30 PM IST for users in India.

A classic iOS problem: If you're still rocking a 16GB iPhone that's almost full, then you might have problems actually downloading iOS 11.

After installing iOS 11, Apple device users will also be able to take advantage of some other, less-heralded new features.

It has been a long time in the making, but we are glad to share with you the news that iOS 11 officially released this week. They have now brought Apple Pay to Messages, so money can be sent in a text conversation. All you have to do is tell Siri "Play something that I like" and it will play your favorite tunes.

The iOS update will make large numbers of old apps obsolete, it's feared.

But this is one of those cases where Apple seems to believe it's better to inconvenience some users in order to protect others, as well as a subtle signal to developers about app sizes, it seems.

Found any problems with iOS 11?
