iOS 11 has certainly been the biggest talking point of late as far as the field of technology is concerned. It has been not long that it has been released. In fact, only a few weeks have passed since the iOS 11 Beta 1 was launched by Apple during the WWDC (which has followed by the launch of the iOS 11 Beta 2 as well). And finally, the iOS 11 Public Beta 1 has been launched which will enable the owners of Apple devices running on iOS platform to get an idea of how things are working.
There is a wide range of users who use Apple devices running on the iOS operating system. And here’s all that you need to do in order to download and subsequently install the iOS 11 Public Beta 1. The steps are listed as follows.
Steps to Download iOS 11 Public Beta
Step 1: Go to beta.apple.com and get your Apple device registered. Even if you have done that previously during the installation of iOS 10, you have to it again.
Step 2: Sign up with your Apple ID there and once you have done that a long page of the agreement will appear in front of you.
Step 3: You have to accept that, otherwise, the developers won’t allow you install iOS 11 Public Beta 1 on your Apple iPhone or iPad.
Step 4: Now you will have to enrol your device for the update. Among the three tabs – iOS, MacOS, and tvOS, choose iOS. That will redirect you to a new menu where you need to click on ‘Enroll Your Device’. Then click on that and subsequently on iOS 11.
Step 5: Now that you have enrolled yourself, go to beta.apple.com/profile from the Safari browser where you will have to sign in.
Step 6: This time you can spot the configuration profile for iOS 11 (if you have already enrolled via a PC). Then configure the device and the installation will be completed if you follow the instructions that will appear on the screen.
Steps for Downloading and Installing iOS 11 Public Beta – Alternative Method (OTA Method)
All the devices from Apple running on the iOS 8.1.3 or later will get the iOS 11 Public Beta as OTA upgrades. So it won’t be too much of a difficult task for you to install it. All that you need to perform is, go to ‘Settings’. Click on ‘General’. There you will find the option ‘Software Update’. Once you click on that, the installation will begin automatically.
Precautions for Installing iOS 11 Public Beta
It has been mentioned earlier that all the users who are using the iOS 8.1.3 or the ones released after that will be able to download this new Public Beta which has been released by the developer. But before you perform the action, you need to take care of a few things, in fact, you are advised to. Apple has also released a statement on that, and it reads, “We strongly recommend installing beta software on a secondary system or device, or on a secondary partition on your Mac.” And these are given as follows.
- Firstly you should create a back-up of all that you have got on your smartphone or tab in iTunes. This is because there are enough chances that the update might delete everything that is there on your device.
- Also, it is suggested that you should install the iOS 11 Public Beta 1 on a spare device. And that’s also due to the fact that this is a Beta version which might have a number of bugs. That might cause harm to your device, hence, such a measure.
This is how you can download and install iOS 11 Public Beta 1 on your iPhone or iPad or any other compatible device. Also, you can downgrade to the current version of the iOS that you are using on your device. So, while performing any of the actions, if you face any trouble you can leave your queries here, and we will get back to you with a possible solution to that.
