As an added bonus, iOS 11 testers say Apple is finally letting users play GIF animations natively in the Photos app.

It will not work on the iPhone 5 (released in 2012) or the iPhone 5C (2013), as well as fourth-generation iPads (2012). This update is not only limited to pre-existing apps but with the new App Store redesign, apps using the 32-bit architecture will no longer be visible on search and will even be removed from the "Purchased" tab.

Other hardware announced included a new iMac Pro that will be released in December, and substantial updates to the iPad, laptop and desktop ranges. Both models will also be available that week in Apple Stores in the U.S., Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

The iPhone screen will also be locked to prevent drivers from using many of their apps while driving.

If the iPhone is connected to a auto via Bluetooth or a cable, or if the vehicle is moving, the "Do Not Disturb" feature can automatically mute notifications like text messages and news updates.

Apple Pencil: Apple reduced the latency to an industry-best: 20 milliseconds. iPad Pro users can now use the Pencil to use Markup in screenshots and in documents scanned using the Notes app.

Control Center: Control Center gets an overhaul with iOS 11. The "native" device will be notified that someone else is trying to join the network, and will be given the option of sending them the password directly over-the-air.

And, what do you know, Apple went ahead and did just that, alongside other relevant announcements concerning upgrades for macOS, watchOS and tvOS.

If you are now using the iOS 11 beta, you can find the Offload Unused Apps feature by opening the Settings app, and tapping on General. Also, Live Photos will receive the new Bounce and Loop effects. Many features made it to the stage including a new file system, a dock for apps, and drag and drop. So let's see what the new iOS 11 comes with, shall we?

Once you have determined that your Apple device is compatible, visit the Apple Beta Program website and enrol yourself in the program.
