iOS 11 Release Date, Rumors, Features & News

Everything you need know about Apple’s next-generation mobile operating system for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

iOS 11 Release Date

Based on the historic information, Apple usually releases a major iOS update a week after the iPhone launch event.

We expect Apple to unveil iPhone 8 or iPhone X at a media event in early September 2017, so the iOS 11 release date will most likely be in the second week of September just like previous years.

iOS 11 Features Rumors and News

iOS 11 is rumored to feature FaceTime Group calling. Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced FaceTime on June 7, 2010, in a keynote speech at the 2010 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, where iPhone 4 was also launched. It would be a welcome addition to one of the most underrated features of iOS. A questionable iOS 11 rumor claims that Siri will gain iCloud integration and contextual learning in iOS 11.  There are also rumors that Apple is working on iPad-specific updates, which is urgently needed.

Besides these rumors, iOS 11 could major design changes, and Apple may finally introduce dark mode, which Apple has been testing since iOS 10.

This year, Siri has been outshone and surpassed by Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. While they’re not perfect, they’re doing things that Siri won’t, in a way that Apple wouldn’t.

The state of automation on the Mac is a bit grim right now. Apple’s sole automation evangelist – the guy behind Automator, has been let go. There’s not going to be a replacement. But things are much more exciting on the iOS side. Apple has bought the stellar iOS automation app Workflow. The app is now free on the App Store.
