IOS 11 to be available for iPhones and iPads on September 19

  • iPhone 5 owners will miss out on some the key new iOS 11 Features being released this Month

Although this beta version of iOS 11 should be almost ideal 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. The prompt will tell users that the App Store will no longer be found on iTunes.

This means that in order to buy an iOS app, you must do it on the iOS device itself.

Other changes include a previously announced move for iTunes U content, which is now in the Podcast section.

Apple Pay has been upgraded to support peer-to-peer (P2P) payments through a new iMessage app, with transactions authenticated using Touch ID, or presumably Face ID on the iPhone X. With the new built-in application, people can access and arrange their saved data across their iPhone, iPad, iCloud Storage, Mac computers, and even those that are stored in third-party services such as Box and Dropbox.


You can install iOS 11 now just by signing up for the public beta program on Apple's website. As for Apple Music, the big change is that it now features a social sharing feature.

Simply select your device from upper left hand corner of iTunes, and click the 'Restore iPhone' button while holding down the left 'Shift' Key (Windows) or the left 'Option' key (Mac). Once it finishes, there will be no need to restart the Mac computer and users can start using iTunes 12.7 immediately.

Downloading and installing iTunes 12.7 should only take a few minutes, but this will depend on the user's internet speed. You should not need to restart your Mac, unless you also chose to click the Update All button, which installs any other OS updates available.

When iTunes first launched over 15 years ago, it was just about music. The US-based tech giant has removed the iOS App Store from the iTunes.
