The stable build for iOS 11 is scheduled to be released next month and will features fresh updates to Siri, new AR experiences, better multitasking on iPad and much more.

Apple's iOS 11 is now available as beta, and it's likely to be released in September.

Right now, Apple is seeding the fifth beta version of iOS 11 to software and app developers.

IOS 11 public beta is already available for those who are courageous enough to put their phone through an unstable software, and thanks to some Twitter users, here's a look at an important upcoming feature. Resembling a task bar, the Dock displays icons of recently used apps and can be customized to provide quick access to users' favorite tools.

As phrased by The Grugq, a well-known (if pseudonymous) operational security expert with a prominent Twitter presence, Apple's new feature may just be "a feel-good toy for people that will never experience risk if their security fails". By preventing that from being possible, iOS 11's new cop button isn't so much about calling the cops as it is about stopping them in their tracks.

iPad - How to manage and fly through your files with iOS 11 With the new Files app, you can find all your important files in one convenient place. It can beused to access recently opened documents, drag, and drop files immediately. It is worth adding that until now, users had to restart the device in order to disable the fingerprint sensor.

While Androids users are anxiously awaiting the final name, and launch, of Android 8.0 "O", iOS users are also looking forward to iOS 11, set to launch this quarter.

The new iPhone 8 looks fascinating, and it also fits the hand perfectly.

Finally, the feature can also be configured to alert a pre-defined list of contacts should you press the power button five times. iOS 11 is now in the public beta stage of development, with regular updates already being pushed out by Apple to eager application developers.

A major question still unresolved is the future of Touch ID on Apple's upcoming flagship.

However, bringing up the option to call 911 is not the only thing that the Emergency SOS feature is capable of, as activating it will also disable Touch ID on the iPhone.
