APPLE fans are preparing to install iOS 11, the new operating system for iPhone and iPad which is released today. While Apple has not announced a time, past experiences indicate that the update will go live at around 10:30 PM IST. Whilst on iOS 10 these apps still launch, on iOS 11 you can only hope that the developer continues to maintain the application and releases an update. This is around 10.30 PM IST for users based in India.

With iOS 11, you get a truckload of new features but you also lose some pretty useful things.

Even though there's no immediate need, an iOS update is a good time to through all your apps and see if there are any you need to clear out.

However, previous year when iOS 10 was released some iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch owners got an incredibly unpleasant surprise.

Now, if your device falls under the list of compatible ones, you will most likely receive the notification for update by tonight or latest by tomorrow morning. If you don't already have the iTunes app, download it and open it.

As soon as the installation is complete, you'll boot right into watchOS 4 and you can start using it as you normally would. We'll explain that step below.

The most straightforward way to install iOS 11 is via the OTA (over the air) update that will land straight on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

iOS 11 will work with iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone SE, and iPhone 5s.

For example, if you own anything older than (and including) the iPhone 5c, you'll not be able to upgrade your OS. Or you could keep them, and they just wont open when you load iOS 11. So such virus scanning apps doesn't actually work on the iOS devices and hence Apple has been removing such apps from the App Store.

The software is freely available for Apple customers and will arrive with a range of improvements on the previous operating system.

If you do not have a Wi-Fi connection at home or want to perform a clean install of iOS, you can install iOS 11 via iTunes.

The first biggest change in iOS 11 is the Control Center. Just do to iTunes, tap on the device, see if the new software update has arrived and starting downloading. You can simply upload your data to iCloud.

The most important update comes with the all-new Files app, providing iPad users access to the file manager to store and organise files. At least now you know the iOS 11 release time in your time zone. Aside from the above, the iPod Touch 6th generation will also be receiving the iOS 11 update.
