11 changes coming to iPhone with Apple's iOS 11 Curious about the iPhone 8? Here's what's coming, courtesy of Apple's introduction of its new operating system.

Apple still has some explaining to do when it comes to the finer details. For example, Apple executive Craig Federighi said on stage that when you receive money from a friend it will go into an Apple Pay Cash card, of which I’d like to learn more.
