With that in mind, here are some of the firmware's newest features and improvements you need to check out. When it comes to older models, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone SE, iPhone 5s will get the iOS 11.

Users with an, Office 365, or Exchange 2016 email account may not be able to send emails using the default Mail app in iOS 11. This way, if anything happens to get deleted you'll still have everything saved elsewhere. If you have the iPad 4th gen, then its time to bid goodbye to software updates on this.

Details on how to update to Apple iOS 11 and the full list of compatible devices are provided below.

When users download iOS 11, they'll get a notification from the operating system, saying that a particular app "needs to be updated". You should see a message for iOS 11 if your device is compatible. But when you compare that number to the likes of iOS 10's release past year, then you might be surprised to learn that it managed to be installed on 14.45% of devices in the same time period of 24 hours.

Users should keep in mind this is a 1.89 GB update and it is best to do this over WiFi, rather than mobile connection. The software on iOS 11 halves the size of photos on the phone (meaning you can shoot more and use less storage space), and brings new features to the camera, including the ability to take long-exposure photos, and looping videos out of the live photos you shoot. Obviously there is no way around this if you need the features active but, if you aren't connected to WiFi or Bluetooth, turn them off.

But security experts recommend updating to the latest version iOS as soon as possible to take advantage of fixes to vulnerabilities which could otherwise allow hackers to gain control of the device.

Dedicated Files App- In terms of the iCloud Drive, there is now a dedicated files app.

In the new control centre you can also customise what functions and features appear there, including the new "do not disturb while driving" mode. You'll probably also want to make sure your device is plugged in and charging so the update doesn't completely drain your battery.

Click on Summary, then hit "Check for Update".

Apple has made multitudes of changes to the way things work on its devices, calling this update "a giant step for iPhone".
