Statement at Apple website: iOS 11 sets a new standard for what is already the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. It makes iPhone better than before. It makes iPad more capable than ever. And now it opens up both to amazing possibilities for augmented reality in games and apps. With iOS 11, iPhone and iPad are the most powerful, personal, and intelligent devices they’ve ever been.

Here in MDT, typically will drop at 11AM. The tvOS update should be rolling out, as well…though I’m still waiting for my fave reseller to get the 4K Gen 5 Apple TV.

    BGR’s article is spot on…mostly. The 2 main reasons for thr first few days of surprising battery use being (1) you playing with the critter all day and (2) the critter indexing all over again. But, I don’t remember if it was the default ~ I think it was – the new file app includes all your info in iCloud. Lots more to settle down in tidy fashion.

    Every major iOS update has included a blob of articles about battery life and – a month or so later – we’re all back to normal. It’s as ordinary as new car smell.

    “…The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (and the upcoming iPhone X) are powered by Apple’s A11 bionic processor, which is a six-core SoC optimized for A.I.
    Some users and pundits are disappointed with some aspects of the iPhones. But to build a processor like the A11 into a phone (instead of a supercomputer) is revolutionary without question.
    Not only can this six-core chip fire all cores simultaneously, it’s really fast. Benchmarks are showing that the A11 blows away the newest iPad Pros in performance and is closer to Apple’s fastest laptops.
    The revolutionary bit, however, is dedicated hardware Apple calls a “Neural Engine.” This part can perform up to 600 billion A.I.-specific operations per second. The “Neural Engine” is designed to work with Apple’s Core ML developer tools, which exist for app developers to gain easy access to the power of machine learning.” https://www.computerworld.com/article/3227826/mobile-wireless/the-latest-iphones-show-why-ai-is-the-new-electricity.html
