With iOS 11 comes a brand new look for the App Store, as well as several other changes that will affect millions of iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users around the world. But the good news is that the bulk of App Store apps are ready to embrace iOS 11, which is a major shift for Apple into the realm of productivity.
Here are some great productivity apps for iPhone that are free as of today, September 8. The free offers are entirely at the discretion of the developers, so these may be taken off the table at any time. If you’re a productivity buff, then these apps can be yours for free if you download and install them now in preparation for iOS 11, which could see a full public release as early as the middle of next week.
