iOS 11 Beta: Apple has already created a sensation with the grand release of the iOS 10 this year. The innovative features of this newly launched operating system have made the fans excited as well as content. But just like all the operating systems, fans have already started counting days for the next version of the software, iOS 11. It is the next big thing Apple is developing currently and is expected to storm the technological world with its unparalleled and unprecedented features. But before every OS release, Apple launches a Beta version of that software to read the pulse of the fans and to give a demonstrate the software to the testers and tech enthusiasts. So in this article, we have discussed the iOS 11 Beta and how you can download and install it.
iOS 11 Beta Release Date
Every year Apple unveils the next generation operating system and a new iPhone in the month of June-July at the WWDC conference. This year too, the US-based tech giant released the iPhone 7 and iOS 11 at the same time. But as we said above, they launch a Beta version of the OS a month prior to the official release, just like the launched iOS 10 Beta on 13th June this year. So we can expect that following the tradition, Apple will release the iOS 11 Beta on 5th June 2017. As soon as the company will announce the iOS 11 Beta release date officially, we will let you know on this web page.
However, as the year inches forward, we have an inkling of when the iOS 11 will be officially announced and unveiled for the world to see. The fact is that, as we have already noted above, Apple announces their software developments during the Worldwide Developers Conference every year, and we already have the dates for this year’s event. In 2017, the WWDC will kick off on June 5, and as is customary with Apple, we expect the iOS 11 to be announced with all its dazzling features during the opening keynote. So yes, we will get to know about some of the things that we will be able to try out firsthand when the iOS 11 Beta 1 is rolled out shortly after the event comes to a conclusion on June 9.
Coming to when we can actually get our hands on the iOS 11 Beta version, we can take a look at last year’s example for reference and conclude that the public beta will be rolled out sometime in the month of June itself after the announcement. The public beta will be preceded by the developers beta. All these will become clear after the WWDC 2017 event, but for now, we can speculate about some of the things that we might end up experiencing in the iOS 11 Beta.
iOS 11 Beta- What to Expect
It is but understood that the final version of iOS 11 will be a much more improved version of the one we will get in the Beta, but we are really looking forward to trying out a couple of things while they’re still cooking to get a feel of how amazing the OS update will be when it comes out. So while we know that an improved Siri is on the cards, we would really like it to grace the beta version as well to whatever extent possible. Among the other things that we would love to try out, the advanced facial recognition feature ranks high on our list, but it appears that it wouldn’t be possible to explore that on the older devices that we own. But the smaller but equally crucial upgrades will really make a difference to our iOS 11 Beta experience.
