The latest version of iOS 11 beta 6 is now available to download right now from the developer portal or as over-the-air updates on the device.
iOS 11 Beta 6 OTA
Apple has used the last iOS 11 beta, and others before that in all honesty, to fix a number of issues that developers and public testers were facing with iOS 11 and third-party apps. Previous versions of iOS 11 beta introduced refinements to Notification Center, changes to multitasking on iPad, new TV Provider placeholder listings, and other minor tweaks. Apple’s engineers have fixed issues with video playback in apps like Amazon Video and Sling TV, as well as rectifying issues with some of Facebook’s and Kindle’s services who use those apps.
Now, we have access to beta 6 of the platform, it is fair to suggest that we likely won’t be seeing any new additions going forward. With Apple using the time between now and launch to fix a number of the known issues, also making it into the release notes.
The advice is the same as always, keep using it and keep reporting back the issues to Apple in order to enable everyone to get a streamlined pristine release next month.
