Apple has officially launched iOS 11 to the general public via the Apple Beta Software Program. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users can now install iOS 11, however Apple does not recommend installing beta software on primary devices. Buzz has been building around the newest mobile operating system since its reveal at WWDC. Apple has posted an iOS 11 preview highlighting some of the changes in the latest firmware.
Apple's recently unveiled iOS 11, slated to launch this fall with the debut of the new iPhone, introduces a slew of new features including an overhauled, customizable Control Center, an improved Siri, the ability to send money to friends via Messages and more. While the new iOS is still several months away, it is currently available for developers and a public beta version will be available within a few weeks for anyone who can't wait to test drive the new features.
