New Apple iOS 11 will end support for iPhone 5 and 5c

Posted June 22, 2017

Among the new offerings from Apple is a challenge to the Amazon Echo and Google Home devices along with operating system updates. The new variant has a Files app, searchable handwritten notes and new productivity features using Apple Pencil.

See what's new in iOS 11 with our deep dive into the new iOS 11 features that matter the most and how the iOS 11 vs iOS 10 comparison shapes up now that Apple showed off a new look and new options for your iPhone and iPad.

The iOS 11 update is coming in the fall and there is an iOS 11 beta available today that you can install on a spare device to try out the new iOS 11 features early.

Apple SVP of Software Engineering, Craig Federighi, announced the features of Apple's latest iOS 11 at the WWDC 2017 event.

Furthermore, the iOS 11 made a major facelift in the Control Center. With iOS 11, users can take screenshots of Snapchat photos without the contact ever knowing about as it bypasses the app's default screenshot alert. With new graphics capabilities, it can also support up to 18 core processors.

We already know that some of the new iOS 11 features will not come to all of these devices. So, no third party apps required. However, this year's iOS 11 will focus on iPad productivity the most, as far as Apple announced.

IOS 11 is now available as a beta for developers, with a public beta due out at the end of the month, and a general release expected in the Autumn. And it stops users from replying to messages. The tool, found in Settings General About Applications, lists installed apps that don't run in 64-bit mode, and warns: "The apps may slow down your iPhone and will not work with future version of iOS if they are not updated". This also means that if you delete a conversation it is deleted across all devices.
