Apple Releases First Public Beta of iOS 11
Apple today made iOS 11 available to public beta testers. Those interested in testing the unfinished operating system can sign up for the program on Apple's web site. This first public beta is likely the same code that Apple released to developers earlier today. Public beta testers are expected to provide feedback on the operating system's performance and Apple installs a feedback app with the beta. Apple strongly recommends beta testers back their devices up before installing the test code. The company also notes that the public beta is not recommended for peoples' main phone or tablet and that it be reserved for a secondary device. iOS 11 targets usability and multitasking on the iPad more than the iPhone, but both the iPad and iPhone will see refreshed control center behaviors, new photo gallery tools, better iMessage app behaviors, and much more. Apple won't release a final version of iOS 11 until the fall.
