  • iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max is confirmed to get the iOS 17 update.

  • iOS 17 might be the last iOS version the iPhone 11 series gets. 

Will iPhone 11 Series Get Updated To iOS 17?

Apple supports its smartphones for the longest period compared to any other smartphone brand. 

When Apple announced iOS 17, Apple also revealed the iPhones that will be cut from receiving any further updates. iPhones older than iPhone X did not make the cut and will not be updated. That means iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 will be updated to iOS 17 and along with the newer iPhones.

However, this means that iOS 17 might be the last iOS version update the iPhone 11 series receives as Apple will probably stop supporting iPhone 11 when it releases iOS 18 like it cut out iPhone X. 

When Will iPhone 11 Series Get The iOS 17 Update? 

Apple revealed iOS 17 at WWDC 2023 event. It detailed the new version of iOS, but it did not reveal the official launch date for iOS 17 at the event

UPDATE: Apple has officially announced at the launch of the iPhone 15 series that the iOS 17 update will be released for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max on September 18, 2023. To update your device to iOS 17, go to Settings > General > Software Update > Download and Install. If Automatic Updates are turned on your device, the phone will be updated automatically overnight.

iOS 17 will be launched alongside the iPhone 15 series launch, usually scheduled for September. The previous five iOS versions were launched like that in September, which means we can expect the same for iOS 17 as well.

iOS 17 update will start seeding to all iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max users after Apple launches iOS 17 and iPhone 15 series. Apple generally updates most of its phones simultaneously, so you can expect it to reach your phone on the same day as the iPhone 15 launch.
