Apple is now finally rolling out the 10th OS update to the iOS 11. We will not call the iOS 11 as the most widely and immediately installed iOS version as it comes with bugs and performance issues.

The update is available for our test device with a size of 163.2MB in total.  The update was initially available for download from the Apple download center but now the company has started rolling it out as OTA(Over The Air) also.
