The Apple Pay service is also getting an upgrade, allowing users to make peer-to-peer (P2P) payments through a new iMessage app, with authentication carried out using Touch ID biometrics.
I've got a quick message for Apple: I like (d) browsing for iOS apps on my Mac.
Just like the previous major iOS updates, you will be able to install the iOS 11 update on your iPhone or iPad wirelessly by downloading the OTA update directly on the device. And a lighter iTunes desktop app could make it easier for Apple to bring it in the Windows Store, as announced.
It appears Apple wants to trim down its legendary music service, which has been criticized over the years for having messy interfaces and a unusual relationship with iOS.
Apple has released iTunes 12.7 to all users, adding support for iOS 11 and Apple Music's new social sharing features. The latest study claims that the crashing app rate on iOS devices has jumped to 54% in the second quarter - up from 50% in Q1.
When opening iTunes 12.7 for the first time, users will be greeted by an update prompt from Apple. Click on it, but do so while holding down the left Option key (Mac) or the left Shift key (Windows). The mobile operating system will stop supporting 32-bit apps, which could indicate that older Apple iPhones will not be compatible with iOS 11, and will have to utilize the iOS 9 or iOS 10.
In a preview for iOS 11, Apple wrote: 'Apple Music learns your tastes, so you can ask Siri to play something you'd like'.
The new App Store for iOS 11 will have a new Today tab which will have original stories from Apple's editors from around the world talking about the newest and latests apps.
