While many software updates have introduced subtle design changes over time, iOS 11 will completely overhaul the way you use your device and will render the popular iPhone 5 and 5C devices obsolete.

The iPad Air and Air 2; the iPad Mini 2, 3, and 4; the fifth-generation iPad; and all iPad Pros.

Apple has updated its India website with all the new products it announced at its ongoing WWDC 2017 event, revealing each device's price ahead of a country-specific launch.

The Messages app gets a redesigned App Drawer, which makes it easier to share stickers and other content such as songs on Apple Music or Starbucks gift cards. Many are saying that Apple is simply doing this to force you to upgrade to the latest iPhone, but you really don't need to do that either. However, this year's iOS 11 will focus on iPad productivity the most, as far as Apple announced. This means the new iPad Pro is nearly all screen offering users more real estate with a full-size on-screen keyboard.

The upcoming iOS 11 will only work on newer iPhones and iPads which have more advanced processors. Now as the device pipeline fills, the company is shining more of the spotlight on hardware to woo the developers needed to create accompanying apps. The company is hoping that people who use an Apple iPhone will be able stop with notifications while they are driving.

You pair an iPhone to a HomePod in the same way as wireless AirPod headphones, by holding your handset next to it, Apple claims. The free software update for mobile devices, iOS 11, is expected in September, when Apple typically releases new iPhones.

He added that he hopes other smartphone manufacturers like Samsung and Nokia "will do even more to protect us".

Should iOS 11 bring a viable workaround to add and listen to FLAC files, these albums can become easily added to your library without having to convert them into compressed MP3 files. That means you can play music on certain speakers in the home right from within Apple Music.

Control Center gets a host of improvements including a whole loads of buttons, albeit one that makes the UI look a bit crowded with bubbles of different sizes. There are still risks with a public beta, including the possibility that some of your existing apps might not work with the OS yet or that you could lose data, but there's no fee to join. $749 and $949 buy you a 256GB and 512GB 10.5-inch iPad Pro, respectively and both come with a $25 gift. The update will land on all supported iPhone and iPad devices later in the fall.

As you may know, I now use Google Chrome across all the devices and PCs I use, but there are some new Safari features that might put a stop to this on iOS. The pro model now comes in two sizes, one with the 10.5 inch and a 12.9 inch screen.
