Apple’s iOS, the mobile operating system behind the iPhone, iPad and iPod, has had its ups and downs in the past. If anything, iPads have always received the short end of the stick whenever a new update or version was released because iOS always seemed to cater specifically to the iPhone. But this will all change soon once iOS 11 is publicly launched. The launch event is bound to take place early in the fall of this year, so be prepared for it because it’s rapidly approaching.
How to Install and What to Avoid
In the meantime, the fifth developer preview for iOS 11 just went live, which means that the fourth one is now available in the public beta testing program. So if you’re not a developer, but still want to try it out, now you can do just that. All you need to do in order to install it is to register an account with Apple’s public beta testing program. Then you will be granted access to the website from where you can download the iOS 11 beta 4 images to install on your device.
However, Apple strongly advises anyone who tries this to install the public beta of iOS 11 on a backup device of sorts, and not on their main Apple devices. Needless to say, the operating system is still in its beta testing phase, which means it is unstable. Even though there are small chances of these unstable beta previews ever actually hurting your device permanently, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
