The update includes higher drive capacities and new Kaby Lake processors.

The new iPad Pro will come in the following WiFi models: 64 GB for $649, 256 GB for $749, and 512 GB for $949.

The new iOS 11 update will be sent to iPhone 5s and above, sixth-gen iPod touch and recent iPad models as well.

When it comes time to update to iOS 11, you'll get a notification on your device letting you know your download is ready.

Although Apple's new Do Not Disturb function is unlikely to solve automotive fatalities or accidents stemming from cellphone distraction, the feature's introduction does show that the company is paying attention to what's happening on our roads, unlike too many drivers.
