IOS 11 public beta: should you download it?


If you're a registered developer, you can download iOS 10.3.3 beta here, or if you're a public beta tester, you can download iOS 10.3.3 here.

What is the iOS 11 public beta?

Apple has unleashed the iOS 11 public beta on the world, and developers are rushing to download it.

Apple Pencil is also upgraded with support for inline drawing and a new Instant Notes feature which allows to opens Notes from the Lock Screen by simply tapping Apple Pencil on the display. You'll then provide an Apple ID and other information.

Apple's iOS 11 beta 2 introduces a bunch of bug fixes in order to address issues that were discovered in its beta 1.

Before you begin to install iOS 11 Public Beta 1, please make sure it is running the latest version of the OS. After you have done that, the iOS 11 Public Beta 1 will begin to download.

While you're at it, you might also want to unenroll your device from the Beta program, which will cease any beta software updates getting delivered to your device.

Those who are looking to try it should remember that since it is still in beta form, the experience will not be smooth and will in fact be laden with bugs and lags.

When it comes to the issue with iOS 11 beta, it is the same as every other beta, which means that there could be issues, bugs, and problems. Once you install that, you will be asked to restart your iOS device. You don't need to pay $99 for a developer account to download it.

Click "Back Up Now" then go to iTunes on the top-left menu and choose "Preferences" in the macOS menu bar then click on the "Devices" tab and finally, click on the new backup while holding down the Control key and click on "Archive". Like many people, I use screenshots on my iPhone every single day, and the process of storing or sharing them is about to get a lot better in iOS 11. All you have to do is, just go to Settings General Software Update and install any new beta update that is rolled out during the course of testing.

For example, it's now possible to drag and drop info and media across apps and the dock can also be expanded on the iPad to fit more apps; it's also always visible on the iPad, making jumping between multiple apps much easier.

Apple is also giving augmented reality a big boost by bundling in an ARKit for developers to build their AR-based apps. This excellent feature doesn't rely on you configuring the iPhone via Bluetooth, as I had expected.
