You can now download iOS 11 Public Beta 9 and install it the right way on your compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device, as the testers interested in putting iOS 11 through its paces are now able to do so on their compatible iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices.
Details on the installation process is here, which somewhat straightforward, and should have a complete tutorial on this to make it as easy as possible for anyone interested in running iOS 11.
What’s important to note is that iOS 11 exists at a very best early beta stage. Anyone installing the firmware can expect a platform that’s full of new features, but also will likely come in front of performance issues, determined battery performance and potential overall system instability. All, you have these issues, expected with an initial firmware beta, but it’s always good to be armed with that knowledge prior to installing on a device. Bugs and other issues will arise, make a note of it. If you are happy enough to proceed on that basis, then let’s get started right to it.
Before that, take a moment to check if your iOS running device is fully compatible with iOS 11 or not, for that you have to check the “iOS 11 Compatibility for iDevices.” Also make sure you backup all of your device data stored to either iTunes or iCloud servers before installing this pre-release build of iOS. Done? Let’s proceed.
NOTE: We highly recommend that you do not install this iOS 11 on your primary iOS device, rather use a device that is unusable. As mentioned earlier, the platform will contain bugs and come in with performance issues that could prevent the main device from functioning normally.
Step 1: First of all, make sure that your device is running the latest version of iOS. That version is iOS 10.3.3. You can download it from here if you need it: Download iOS 10.3.3 Final IPSW Links For iPhone, iPad, iPod touch.
Step 2: Go to beta.apple.com on your iOS device if you want to enroll in the beta. You’ll need to be registered with Apple to participate in the Apple Beta Software Program. To register, you’ll need to head over to beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram to proceed. Already registered? Skip to step 3.
