iOS 11.4 Beta 3 Expected Release Date: Here’s What We Know So Far

Estimate time for when developers and public testers can expect to receive the third pre-release seed of iOS 11.4.

Here, what we can assume is how Apple has done a great job of continuously pumping out beta versions of iOS 11.4. Followed hot on the heels of the general release of iOS 11.3. Waiting for the prime version of iOS 12, which is said is compatible with 2013 iPhone 5s, too. But the testing community is only appeased for so long, so, with that in mind, when will iOS 11.4 beta 3 land on our devices?

History showed us, that Apple initially goes out to the testing community an initial seed of one of its platforms, also waits for a prolonged period of time. It may take two weeks – before releasing the second seed, and then that time will be reduced down in order to pump out regular releases as it hones in on a public release.

Of course, there’s still nothing inside the roadmap of iOS 11.4 which convinces us it will be different anything. With that in mind, and with iOS 11.4 beta 2 on April 17, 2018, we expect Apple to push out beta 3 seed to developers on either Monday, April 23 or Tuesday, April 24.

Where iOS 11.4 developer beta 3 is concerned, we don’t exactly know anything new but expect Apple to introduce any new features or functionality. Rather to simply issue the progression of the platform and streamline and fine-tune the additions which have already made an appearance in this build.

To recap, the initial betas have, however, shown developers and public testers that Apple plans to reintroduce the Messages on iCloud functionality – pulled out with the early iOS 11.3 betas but then subsequently removed without warning. It also said to reintroduce AirPlay 2 which will bring multi-room audio capabilities and allow Apple TV to once again show up in the Home app on eligible devices.

iOS 11.4 is also notable for the fact that it exposes the new ClassKit APIs to developers, which were initially announced as part of Apple’s Field Trip education-focused event in Chicago, Illinois.

All-in-all, it’s a relatively solid update which will undoubtedly be worthwhile installing once it goes out into the public domain. The developement roadmap for iOS 11.4 should also take us nicely into WWDC 2018 where we’ll witness iOS 12 unveiled for the first time. So, with one eye on it and iOS 12 announcement, we need to also keep a second eye on April 23-24 for the release of iOS 11.4 beta 3.
