iOS 11 Beta 9: With Apple already having announced the date for its September event, fans can practically feel the iOS 11 release date breathing down their necks. This year’s Apple event is extra special, for the company is about to reveal their tenth anniversary iPhone, which will be one of the first devices to run the iOS 11 out of the box. And we have already been feeling the difference: this year has seen the largest number of betas being seeded to developers and the general public. And today, the company has made the iOS 11 Beta 9 available.
iOS 11 Developer Beta 9 Comes Days After Beta 8
This comes as a surprise, for the eighth beta was only released a few days back. This leads us to assume that the iOS 11 beta 8 must have been plagued by bugs and glitches that Apple did not wish to allow to be dissected by the public. After all, the company has a lot to live up to.

What’s New in iOS 11 Beta 9?
The one major thing that may differentiate the iOS 11 Beta 9 compared to the previous iOS 11 betas could be the lack of actual feature updates. For the eighth beta came in with a few minor upgrades while it appears that Apple has been compelled to roll out a new beta to fix a bug or serious security issues. Having said that, the new software runs smoother on your iOS device. Many users had reported experiencing a certain amount of lag with beta 8, and that has been fixed to a large extent. Other than that, there are a few tweaks in the Message app as well as in the Music Library.
We can see that Apple is definitely going all in with the iOS 11, and we have a feeling that the iOS 11 Beta 9 will not be the last we have seen of it before the software is finally released. However, we are looking forward to all the secrets that Apple has to unveil during their September launch event. Stay with us for any future updates on this front.
