Members registered on Beta Software Program can now download iOS 11 Public Beta 2 seed which Apple has released today for compatible iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.
While developers on Apple Developer Program already settled on the iOS 11 Beta 3 recently, this is a chance for testers Apple giving a little something extra to sink their teeth into with the release of the second public beta of iOS 11 today.
This release follows hot on the heels of iOS 11 developer beta 3 build and those with a compatible iPhone or iPad will instantly get up and running with all of the new changes and improvements added to the platform with iOS 11 beta 3 as the public beta 2 seed is essentially same build as the one released to devs only as “beta 3”. Public testers are always behind the scene slightly but they do significantly improve the results when you factor in the testing that they do and the feedback that they provide directly to Apple.
As has been the case with previous public beta releases, this allows users who are not registered developers to test pre-release versions of iOS with new incremental features for free. When it comes to stability and app compatibility, the same warnings apply to any pre-release seed/software apps might crash, battery life may be sub-optimal, and performance may be sluggish, etc.
From a changelog and feature perspective, public testers can expect to install a version of iOS 11 complete with some fundamental changes to the excellent new ARKit capabilities. Route direction and functionality has been improved in AR-enabled apps. Apple also amended and fixed some 3D Touch issues as well as ensuring that AirPlay works as intended and expected in all third-party apps. There’s still a lot of changes and improvements to come, but for now this is a very solid update with a number of notable improvements.
