Here's how you can get iOS 11 now

Before making the leap to iOS 11 I strongly suggest you check out my article on how to get your iPhone or iPad ready for iOS 11.

Apple's iTunes 12.7 now focuses on music, movies, TV shows, podcasts and audiobooks.

Apple has cut some of the clutter from its iTunes software by removing the ability to buy and transfer iOS apps from the program.

Do you like this change or did you enjoy managing your iOS devices' apps on your computer?

Although this beta version of iOS 11 should be almost flawless with most of the bugs detected and ironed out, there's still a chance that Apple will add or eliminate certain things and you'll need to download an update on the release day. "And the new App Store makes it easy to get, update, and re-download apps-all without a Mac or PC", the company says on the support page on its website. Once users update to iTunes 12.7, the only way to download/redownload apps is directly through the App Store on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

While the new AR features showcased by Apple during the keynote event are not likely to make their way to older iPhones, iOS 11 will still bring a number of exciting new features that should make your iOS experience better.

Also, redownloading ringtones can now be handled on-device, with iOS 11.

Apple's iOS 11 will include an updated version of the App Store. You can also look forward to the new Files app, customizable Control Center, Voice translation, new app switcher, improved Live Photos and Portrait Mode, and slight tweaks to the UI design.

The biggest changes are coming to iPad users, though, with Apple introducing a new dock that can be accessed even when you're in an app, a Drag and Drop tool and wider support for the Apple Pencil.
