You can now download iOS 11 final user guide, as well as for watchOS 4 and tvOS 11 directly from Apple. Here are the details.

You would have to have been asleep at the wheel over the past week to not be acutely aware that Apple had some new software on the verge of release, and iOS 11, tvOS 11 and watchOS 4 are all now here.

Whether you own an iPhone, an iPad, an Apple TV or an Apple Watch, the new software can be downloaded right now and free of charge, assuming you have a device that is compatible. If you do, and you download the updates blind, you may need a helping hand in order to feel your way around what is new. Apple knows this, and has some official user guides ready for you right now.

As was the case last year and the years before it, Apple has user guides available for iOS 11, tvOS 11 and watchOS4 that can be viewed online or, should you be the kind of person who likes to keep everything inside the iBooks app, they can be downloaded directly from the iBooks Store/iTunes on the device itself.

As for web versions, they can be accessed at:

iOS 11 for iPad: help.apple.com/ipad/11/
iOS 11 for iPhone: help.apple.com/iphone/11/
watchOS 4 for Apple TV: help.apple.com/appletv/

Again, they are absolutely free no matter where you download them from and all three are worth a download, even if you think you are pretty up to speed on what is new or what has changed in whichever software releases you will be using.

One particular situation where we think checking out the iOS 11 user guide would be prudent is if you own an iPad. Apple has made some fairly substantive changes to how the iPad functions as part of the iOS 11 refresh, and if you multitask then you will most definitely want to brush up on your skills before heading in. If you have been using the beta releases as part of the developer or public beta programs however, we think you are probably going to be just fine regardless.
