Apple iOS 11 Beta 4 for Developers Released


Apple unveiled their upcoming iOS 11 for iPhone and iPad at the WWDC 2017 — among other things like the HomePod, iMac Pro, 10.5-inch iPad Pro, MacOS High Sierra and WatchOS 4 — and now the company have rolled out the fourth beta build for developers.

The public beta preview for iOS 11 was released in June and highlighted a handful of major feature changes that are going to be brought to the iPad as well as some significant ones for the iPhone.

Apple has made multitudes of changes to the way things work on its devices, calling this update ‘a giant step for iPhone. A monumental leap for iPad’.

As the company prepares for the September release of their new operating system, they’ve released another build for developers to be able to align their app code according to the new OS and also have ample time to test their applications before the public release of iOS 11.

The stable build for iOS 11 will feature fresh updates to Siri, new AR experiences, better multitasking on iPad and much more.

“iOS 11 sets a new standard for what is already the world’s most advanced mobile operating system. It makes iPhone better than before. It makes iPad more capable than ever,” the company had stated earlier.

While the iPad gets a whole lot of new feel to the user experience as multitasking becomes a breeze with drag and drop, app switcher and more functionalities across the device, iPhone also gets a new revamped Control Center.

Those who’re registered with Apple as a developer will receive the Beta 4 Preview build on their devices. The public beta program will get an updated build a few days after this release.

If you’re looking to join the beta programme, here is how to do that, but before you go any further it’s recommended that you go through the below-mentioned information.

Since this isn’t a stable update, it’s recommended that you backup all your data since there can be an unimaginable number of bugs and crashes, and you don’t want to be losing your data due to them. You can even end up bricking your phone.

So, it’s also not advisable to update your primary iPhone or iPad with the latest iOS 11 beta release. If you have a spare iPhone or iPad, then you can choose to update and check out the new features.
