The new iOS 11 was announced recently at the WWDC event. It is available now for being downloaded in a beta version, before the actual release that will take place later in 2017. But how can you install it? Read on to find out the necessary steps for doing so!
Before getting to install the actual software, you might want to know whether your device is compatible or not. The models that can upgrade to this beta version are the following: iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 6, 6 Plus, SE and 5s. Regarding the tablets, the first and second generation of the 12.9-inches iPad Pro version, the 10.5-inches and the 9.7-inches ones are also compatible, as well as iPad Air 2, iPar Air, iPad (2017), the iPad mini series and the iPod Touch 6th gen.
Step by Step Guide
If you want to test out the beta version, obviously you have to be registered as an Apple developer. This means that the developers get a chance to use the OS before the official release. The public beta version will actually be available sometime by the end of this month. The version addresses people who are interested in trying out the new iOS 11 version, despite the fact that most likely it will come together with lots of glitches, bugs and issues.
You can sign up for becoming a beta tester anytime, but you have to check the official website to see if the team released the version from time to time. Once it will become available, you have to log in to the Beta Software Program, enroll your iOS device and then follow the instructions you will see on the screen.
If you don’t want to become a beta tester, then the safest option is to wait until the official release this year.
