Devices as far back as the iPhone 5S, the iPad Air, and the iPad mini 2 can update to iOS 11.

If you've invested in an iPad Pro and Apple Pencil recently, this is a trick you really need to know about.

Though the update itself brings a number of changes to the platform, iOS 11 also marks the official end of 32-bit apps on iPhones and iPads.

The company did not make a version of the new iOS, dubbed iOS 11, for the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, or fourth-generation iPad.

For the most part, all of the important apps will have been updated. Assuming your phone has the most recent updates before iOS 11, you can check which of your now installed apps are not supported. So please, before you do anything that involves watchOS 4, make sure you fully charge up your Apple Watch and place it on its charger.

iOS 11 is the coming of age of the iPad. This way, you don't have to reconnect to all your online accounts. "Navigate to "Settings, ' then 'General" and then 'Software Update.' Then you should see 'Update Requested..."

Siri also gets noticeably smarter in iOS 11 too, and can now translate phrases into a handful of languages, including Spanish, German and French.

The most important update comes with the all-new Files app, providing iPad users access to the file manager to store and organise files. While the home screen hasn't changed, there's now a system-wide dock with all your favorite apps. Now, you can drag documents, photos, audio files, links and more across multiple apps.

Modern phones often slow down when running 32-bit apps. Many developers have been playing around with ARKit, Apple's new augmented reality framework.

Control Center, the widget-filled settings screen that is found by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, has been redesigned to fit more on screen at once. Let go of the buttons once you see the Apple logo. This update adds new features like a Siri watch face that'll proactively display the info that you need and the ability to pair your Apple Watch with compatible gym equipment to sync info like heart rate and speed.

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