While iOS 11 is hardly a bug-free release, so far nothing major has been reported save for sending emails using the Mail app if you're using Outlook.com or Exchange, but otherwise the update seems to be doing just fine. These apps include some Disney products, games such as Enemy Within and Flappy Bird, and even financial service apps from the like of American Express. Apart from bringing with it an buffet of new features iPhone and iPad owners can feast on, the update will also cause many apps to stop working.

Apple has rolled out iOS 11 to all supported devices.

Alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, Apple is beginning to roll out the newest version of its operating system, iOS 11, on Tuesday.

For those of you splashing out on the new iPhone models, the new iOS 11 feature Automatic setup will come in handy.

Learn what you can really do in iOS 11 with these hidden iOS 11 features that you can't go another day without knowing.

Once you download and install iOS 11, any 32-bit apps you have (and those would be apps that haven't been updated for two years or more) will no longer launch. On-device learning means Siri is also more personal and continues to get "smarter" with use. If you really want to get the most out of your iPhone you'll need to dig deeper to find the iOS 11 hidden features that unlock the ability to do more with your iPhone.

To receive this update, go to your "Settings", then "General" and click "Software update". The new option lets you rid yourself of the dreaded app rating request (or, as I like to call it, the beggar's box).

Apple has made multitudes of changes to the way things work on its devices, calling this update "a giant step for iPhone".

Apple has rolled out the highly anticipated iOS 11 to all supported devices, adding a long list of new feature into iPhones and iPads worldwide. However, with new iOS your iPhone will be able to detect when you are in a auto and stop incoming text alerts so you stay focussed on your driving.

Siri Has More Benefits- There are some changes to Siri as well, including natural-sounding voices.
