I've installed iOS 11 as well. (I don't recommend it b/c of how buggy it is.) But I'm really happy with many of the changes. This video from 9to5mac does a good job of covering what’s new.
Emil Protalinski reporting for VentureBeat:
"At its I/O 2017 developer conference today, Google announced Google Assistant is coming to iOS today as a standalone app, rolling out to the U.S. first. Until now, the only way iPhone users could access Google Assistant was through Allo, the Google messaging app nobody uses."
This is obviously smart move for Google. They already offer some of the most-used services on iOS, (Google Maps, Photos, Gmail, etc) taking a signifacant percentage of users from Apple's built-in apps.

I always find reports like this incredibly interesting. Key takeaways:
- 9 apps per day
- 30 apps per month
- iOS users average more apps.
- Android users average more games.
- These numbers include built-in apps like Safari.
- People spend more time in apps than they did two years ago.
Maybe apps aren't dead, yet.
