Apple has now started rolling out the final version of iOS 11, the newest iteration of its iOS mobile operating system. As previously reported over the last few months, this version comes with new cool features, particularly for the iPad, as well as core functionalities for iPhone devices. iOS 11 is made available both by way of an over the air update in the Settings app, and as a wired update which Apple users can gain access to by plugging their iOS powered handset into iTunes. It goes without saying that a lot of mobile users will be trying to get their hands on the latest version of iOS. But for those early adopters who can not quite exercise enough patience, know that Apple normally has a queue system that should facilitate faster downloads. In terms of compatibility, iOS 11 should work with the iPhone 5s and later models (including the newest iPhones), the iPad Mini 2 and newer iPad models, the iPad Air, and the latest iPod touch offering from Apple (sixth generation).
Before installing iOS 11, it is always a wise decision to make sure one’s Apple device is backed up. Users can check if their iCloud back up is up to date by launching their Settings app on their iPhone or iPad device, and going to their account info (at the top section) and then selecting their device name. For those who prefer doing a manual back up in iTunes, they can simply plug their Apple device into their computer. Encrypting one’s back up is also recommended, so that users can also include saved passwords and even their personal health care information.
After backing up one’s device, it is just a matter of opening the Settings app to be included in Apple’s queue system, heading to Settings, and then General, and then choosing Software Update. When users spot Update Requested, they can expect the download to commence right away once the update is made available.
Much has been said about how iOS 11 will transform iPad devices into more proficient computing tools. Pretty soon, Apple fans will be able to experience for themselves the new user interface, replete with a system wide dock that contains all their favorite mobile apps. This dock can be pulled up by just dragging one’s finger from the bottom part of the screen.
For iPhone users, iOS 11 brings most new core frameworks, but the latest iOS version does come with expanded support for ARKit, Apple’s platform for augmented reality. And back in June earlier this year, we also talked about how iOS 11 will help owners of iPhone devices optimize their device’s storage.
