    The first step is obtaining an earlier version of iTunes that supports syncing with an iDevice, right? Is there a reliable link for that?

      iTunes 12.7 still syncs with your iDevice, it just doesn’t sync Apps anymore. I have tise newest iTunes version and the iOS 11 update was download to iTunes 12.7, which I intend to install in the usual manor via iTunes. I’m just waiting to make sure there aren’t any major issues with updating my older iPhone 5s, keeping an eye out for info from trusted sources such as OS X daily and CNET. I will state that I’m no expert but I’ve been in the Apple environment for 20 years or more and I try to read every article on OS X and iOS to increase my own knowledge base. As this article states, updating in the manor described in this article should only be used by advanced users or if you wish to save time updating multiple devices at the same time. For the rest of us, the conventional means of updating over wifi (OTA, e.g. over the air) or via iTunes with a cable should suffice – info provided by the very first link in the very first sentence in this article. I hope my tow cents is worth something. Good Luck!

        My second sentence should read “I have ‘this’ newest of iTunes….” I try and proofread everything I place on the web but missed this. There’s no “edit” button provided after pressing “Submit Comment”. Oh, well…

      Any current version will do that.

    What happens if I do not install IOS 11? I do not like facial recognition security. I know there is a work around but why should I have to use a work around every time I startup my “I” device?

      Face Recognition is only for the new iPhone X. It is not available on any previous devices.

    Why does the screenshots show iOS 11.0.1 even if it is not out yet as of writing this.
