Apple's iOS 11 beta 8 now available to developers, beta 7 available to the public
As we told you last week (and the Wall Street Journal told you nearly a week later), Apple will introduce the 2017 iPhone models on September 12th. And that means we are extremely close to the release of iOS 11, the latest build of Apple's mobile operating system. Today, Apple released iOS 11 beta 8 to developers and iOS 11 public beta 7. That means that both registered developers and iOS users who signed up for the public betas can install the appropriate version of the operating system on their iOS device.

Some of the changes coming with iOS 11 include a revised Control Center, the ability to make peer-to-peer payments in the messaging app, a Do Not Disturb While Driving feature, and changes to Siri, Photos and the Camera app. The iPad gets a new multitasking system that works alongside a new Dock, support for drag-and-drop, enhanced support for the Apple Pencil, and more.

As we told you recently, iOS 11 will not support 32-bit apps. That means 187,000 32-bit apps will no longer work once the new build is installed on your iPhone or iPad. And not all iPhone and iPad models will be receiving the update. Here is a list of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch models that will be updated to iOS 11:
