Here's what fans can expect from the new update based on the betas that have been released thus far. Pokemon GO developer Niantic has announced an upcoming update that will incorporate Apple's ARKit, resulting in a more polished augmented reality experience, but bar devices unable to run iOS 11 from playing the game. Usually, once a new version is out, the previous one will be signed for a couple of weeks, after which Apple pulls the plug on it entirely.

The iOS 11.2.5 software brings a range of new features to the iPhone and iPad, this includes a new feature where you can ask Siri about the news and it will play daily podcasts for you. In this regard, Siri will play news from The Washington Post by default. Mobile devices that are not able to upgrade to iOS 11 will no longer be compatible with the new update, so if you've been holding out on getting that new iPhone here's another reason to think about trading up. To be precise, you can use the feature anywhere where the display of the device is not accessible. The first four beta builds did not seem to have any. So it's safe to assume that the upcoming iOS 11.2.5 would most likely focus on delivering bug fixes and security improvements.

Africa Command statement says the airstrike occurred early Tuesday about 50 kilometers (31 miles) west of the capital. No civilians were killed in the attack, according to the military.

Given the reported adoption rates of new Apple devices, this update probably won't affect the majority of iPhone owners and Pokemon GO players. The update arrives a few days after the company released the fourth beta of the software. Registered developers can download iOS 11.2.5 beta 5 from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air once a proper profile is installed from the Developer Center. The new version will not work on iPhone 5, iPhone 5c smartphones.
