On Monday June 5, 2017, Apple teased us with a little foretaste of iOS 11, but we'll have to wait until Fall 2017 to get to work with the complete upgraded OS.  Look for upgraded versions of Apple Pencil, Augmented Reality (AR), Core ML, Apple Pay, Siri, and Apple Photos and Camera

From official release/information:
