Here’s how to download and install iOS 11 beta 6 OTA update Configuration Profile without registered UDID or developer account.
With Apple’s opening keynote ended with pride by the release of first beta of iOS 11 for users enrolled into the Apple Developer Program, it is likely many are anticipated to get their hands on the latest iteration of the company’s mobile OS. Those who haven’t already registered with the Apple Developer Program, though, will have to wait a little longer. As Apple has announced, while developer beta 5 for both iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra are already out and about, their public variants will be released some time later this month, which shouldn’t be too long away from now.
However, if you just can’t have your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch stay out of date for a second longer, read on the way on how you can get your hands on iOS 11 beta 5 without having to sign up for a developer account. And for free, you don’t even need to have your UDID registered either!
This installation method involves the conjunction of a verified Apple Configuration Profile that triggers an OTA update to the beta firmware. Fair things to do before any and all beta build installations, backup your device to iCloud or iTunes before starting. And also. Make sure you have secured your data in case something goes wrong in any matter or you decide to go for a fresh restore later on.
This official confirmation means that Apple can finally drop support for a number of devices leaving the final list of supported iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to 64-bit hardware only. Check if your device is compatible with iOS 11 installation:
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
