Apple Pushes New iOS 11 Beta to Developers
Apple today seeded the third beta of iOS 11 to application developers. This beta is not yet available to public beta testers, though Apple typically releases new public betas shortly after it updates the developer code. Apple continues to refine iOS 11 and add features based on developer feedback. The company did not call out any specific changes concerning iOS 11 Beta 3. Apple will release more betas, generally once every other week, ahead of the expected final release in September. iOS 11 targets the iPad more than the iPhone, but both platforms gain expanded Control Center tools, a refreshed App Store, new camera features, Siri improvements, as well as updates to iMessage, the Keyboard, files, and more. Apple today also released new beta builds of tvOS 11, macOS High Sierra 10.13, and Xcode 9.
