iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad review: Maybe not the design change expected, but vital for iPad owners

Note: I haven’t given iOS 11 a score yet, as I want to wait and see how the update process goes for everyone. A score will be added in the next few days. 

iOS 11 is the most important update that the iPad lineup has seen since its release nearly eight years ago. And with it, Apple’s tablet finally moves away from being seen as a blown-up iPod Touch, taking its first big step towards becoming a laptop replacement.

The improvements to the iPhone are less obviously impressive. Nevertheless, there remains enough new here to give your phone a fresh lease of life.
