Apple Posts Ads for the New App Store

Tuesday was the release date for iOS 11, the latest version of the operating system that powers Apple Inc.'s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

We have been speculating about what the new iOS would have in store for us and luckily, Apple did not disappoint.

Apple makes iOS updates available immediately to all compatible devices. Thanks to the revamp, the App Switcher displays the Control Center options on the right hand side, the dock at the bottom of the screen and your most recently used apps on the left-hand side. We've got instructions for installing iOS 11 on Apple's tablets over at Laptop Mag.

It's unclear why Messages in iCloud hasn't shipped with iOS 11, but it joins peer-to-peer Apple Pay and AirPlay 2 on the current absentee list. The new drag-and-drop features are also much more powerful on iPad, letting you manage stuff in the Files app more intuitively and even letting you drag and drop photos and text from one app to another.

Apple has finally made its new iOS 11 official for over 20 different iOS devices.

Naturally, those buying the awesome new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus (and the even more awesome iPhone X will) be able to get the update, as will those who have the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6, 6S, 6 Plus, SE, and 5S.

Do Not Disturb While Driving- If you have a teenager, you might want to utilize the new Do Not Disturb While Driving feature. The latest version of iOS is out, available for iPhones and iPads. You also can choose to manually enable this feature, since it comes automatically enabled with the iOS 11 download. Its algorithm also received an upgrade so that the App Store will do a better job of leading users to apps that they might love. But we expect it to open a floodgate of new AR applications and features across the iOS app ecosystem. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus ship with iOS 11 preinstalled.

Once you've connected the device and it appears in iTunes, select the device in iTunes.

Apple Maps will not be able to instruct you on direction from within a building such as airports and shopping centers.

Or people complaining that the new update took up more than what was expected of their storage space.
