iPhone and iPad owners can finally enjoy iOS 11 starting today and Apple’s got some spanking new videos to help you dive right in.

Apple published a series of new how-to videos on iOS 11 that cover a range of topics like converting handwritten notes into type and editing photos. The helpful new videos also cover some cool third-party apps that take advantage of the software update’s new features.

Watch them all right here:

Converting handwriting to type

With iOS 11 and the iPad Pro, you can now scribble down handwritten notes in apps like GoodNotes and then have it automatically converted into text. It’s perfect for students or anyone else that prefers writing by hand but wants a digital copy instead.

Copy and paste across devices

You can now copy and paste something on your iPhone and then paste it into notes or anything else on your iPad thanks to the new Universal Clipboard. It only takes a few steps and works with third-party apps.

Editing photos

The Photos app in iOS 11 got some big upgrades making it easier than ever to make quick edits. You can also make more advanced edits with apps like Pixelmator which lets you do stuff like erasing people out of your pics.
