The Photos app has also been improved in the iOS 11. The highlight is the improved Live Photos app that now lets you choose any of the snaps as your primary photo.

Personally, I am very happy after the upgrade only for the fact that Apple shouldn’t have changed the network carrier signal icons at the top status bar 🙁
