Apple announced in a blog post on Monday that Apple Pay Cash, which lets users send and receive money from friends and family, will release in the fall, missing tomorrow's iOS 11 launch date. Specifically the iPhone battery will lose about 20% of the capacity after 400 charges. To check, head to Settings [your name] iCloud iCloud Backup.

If you want to make a backup using iTunes app, stick to the following steps. When the feature goes live, you'll be able to use messages or ask Siri to send a payment.

Before applying the upgrade, it is important to ensure your smartphone is compatible with iOS 11. Photos use the HEIF format and videos use the HEVC format.

Get your new iPhone, and start setting it up.

Though we got a brief taste of the payments during the WWDC keynote, it hasn't been part of the developer or public betas for iOS 11. If you're satisfied with how your phone works now and don't need the new features right away, hold off until the rest of us discover the problems and Apple fixes them.

In addition, a redesigned App Store aims to make discovering apps and games simpler. It's already one of the most common iOS 11 update questions we are seeing online. Trawl through your apps and delete anything you don't use.

When left outdated, some apps can cause problems in the updating process. You can disable this feature and update your apps manually via the App Store app. Type that in, and you're good to go.

Go to Settings - General - Reset - Reset All Settings and Content - Enter a Passcode. You can also toggle off Auto-Play Message Effects, but that'll take some of the fun out of texting.

The Photos app also features a wide range of new filters to make images look better and all snaps will take up about half as much space as before due to Apple's new "High-Efficiency Image File Format" (HEIF). This takes about 3-5 minutes, and while it is happening you can not use your iPhone. The Location Services option will now allow you to set the app to use your location only when you need it.

From a physical standpoint the iPhone battery will not last as long after a year as it did on day one because batteries degrade over time.
