Now, when you click on the tab in the top left to switch between libraries, the "Apps" option is no longer there. You'll now have to head to the App Store on your mobile device to find all your purchased and downloaded apps. As for Apple Music, the big change is that it now features a social sharing feature.

AR Kit will make its debut with iOS 11, which means augmented reality-based apps will soon start cropping up in the App Store, and Apple has also talked up improvements to its Photos and Messages apps, a revamped Control Centre and reworked lock screen notifications.

One could say that the iTunes is still doing more than what it should be but there has been a rumor for a while now that iTunes could be going away in the future in favor of separate apps for music, movies, podcasts and TV shows on the Mac.

The iTunes update moves Internet Radio to the Music sidebar, moves iTunes U content to the Podcasts section, and removes Ringtones.

Even if you're not planning to spend £999 plus on the new iPhone X to get all the latest features, such as Face ID, the new iOS is introducing some functions that should improve the general iPhone experience. Unlike previous iterations, the new App Store for iOS 11 devices will be more editorial than before and focuses on having users discover new and popular apps. It no longer has an App Store for your iPhone or iPad.

iOS 11 was first announced at this year's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) and has been in the hands of those on Apple's beta program for a number of months already - hence, there won't be any surprises.
