It goes without saying that Apple will show off the next version of iOS at next year's WWDC. Some fans also feel that it is hard to believe as this will be the eleventh iteration of iOS.

iOS 11 New Features Details Revealed

Mac Rumors reported that the next update to Apple's mobile operating system, the iOS 11, is already in development at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, California. Hence, there have been a few rumors about upcoming features that could make their way into the new operating system.

Apple is planning to implement group FaceTime capabilities for the first time, bringing its FaceTime video service in line with Skype and other competing services. The iOS 11 will let users start multi-person calls through a group conversation in iMessage.

The group message will able to hold up to five people at once during the call. Israeli site also suggested that Apple is planning major Siri updates in iOS 11, introducing contextual learning abilities and deep integration with iMessage and iCloud.

According to Apple Music head Jimmy Iovine, iOS 11 will include a "new edition" of the Apple Music app that better showcases video. The revamped app comes as Apple is focusing on original content, like "Carpool Karaoke: The Series," which will be offered through Apple Music, as reported by 9To5Mac.

iOS 11 Update: Preview & Release Dates

It's almost certain iOS 11 will be previewed in June 2017 as Junes are usually when Apple's World Wide Developers Conference kicks off, according to Knowyourmobile. Like clockwork every year Apple has previewed the new version of iOS during the keynote of each WWDC.

Developers can also expect to get their hands on the first beta of iOS 11 on the day of the keynote. As for consumers, they usually need to wait until mid-September when development has wrapped up completely.

However, for the eager users, they will most likely be able to download public betas of iOS 11 a few short weeks after developers get their hands on the beta. In that case, expect to get access to the first public beta near the end of June.
