Apple iOS 11 was finally rolled out for iPhone, iPad users (also includes iPod Touch sixth generation) across the world on Tuesday night. Now, all the Apple users can go to their iOS device and check for the update, hit download and install to get the latest mobile OS from the company. The size of this new update is around 1.89GB. Apple has introduced the new operating system ahead of its two newest phone handsets, the iPhone 8 and iPhone X, set to start shipping to customers.
The most significant change in this update comes with the App Store. For years, the App Store has been the backbone of Apple’s services segment. According to a report by Reuters, it brought in $21.5 billion in revenue in the past nine months, a 19 percent increase over the previous year and a bright spot as overall sales grew only 5 percent. Apple has redesigned the App Store to give app developers more space for images and text to describe their software.
The big question now is that which devices will support this new version of iOS. Here is the full list of compatible devices:
1. iPhone 8 series
2. iPhone 7 series
3. iPhone 6s
4. iPhone 6
5. iPhone SE
6. iPhone 5S
7. Apple iPhone 4S
Unfortunately, Apple 5 and 5C users won’t be getting iOS 11 update.
Coming to the iPads, the Apple iPad Air will get the new update along with the iPad Pro series. If you have the iPad 4th gen, then it’s time to bid goodbye to software updates on this.
In the iPad Mini series, Apple iPad Mini 4, 3 and 2 are all eligible too. The iOS 11 update brings a lot more changes for the iPad this time around. The iOS 11 will also mark the debut of the augmented reality apps, or AR, in which digital images float over the real word.
