Apple Seeds iOS 11.4 Beta 3 Update For Testing

Apple Inc. has officially released yet another pre-release seed version of iOS 11.4. Two weeks after the second developer, and public beta, Cupertino-based company has pushed out iOS 11.4 beta 3 with immediate effect.

As expected and predicted, the registered developers with a compatible iPhone or iPad can grab the latest version right now. Apple is extremely predictable when it comes to releasing new versions of firmware and keeping developers and testers in a situation to test. It’s one level of predictability which allows us to accurately guess when a new version of Apple’s pre-release firmware will be released to the community.

Now, with the latest beta 3 release, the community gets to instantly start testing where iOS 11.4 beta 2 left off. It’s also another release on Apple’s roadmap toward a public release of the platform for all compatible iPhone and iPad models.

In terms of functionality, it’s unlikely that developers and testers will have a great deal. iOS 11.4 beta 3 is a continuation of what has come before it. It’s likely full set of smaller improvements and under-the-hood bug fixes look to progress the platform to try and get their grips closer to an ultimate public release.

For those developers who are yet to give iOS 11.4 a try, or for public testers who have just recently signed up with the Apple Beta Software Program, there are some notable inclusions.

iOS 11.4 unveils Apple’s ClassKit framework. It was initially introduced as part of the company’s Field Trip event in Chicago, recently. Alongside, it also reintroduces the Messages on iCloud functionality, was actually part of iOS 11.3 prior to being inexplicably removed, as well as AirPlay 2 which will once again make the Apple TV part of the Home experience.

All-in-all, iOS 11.4 firmware only have a small number of notable changes and features but those additions definitely do make it a version of iOS worth installing.

If you’re a developer looking to progress iOS 11.4, or a public tester looking to get involved and help Apple ensure quality, then you’re set to grab the latest pre-release version of iOS 11.4 right now for all compatible iPhone and iPad hardware from Settings > General > Software Update section of the device, or from developer.apple.com.
