IOS 11 Public Beta Available for iPhone and iPad

The software will be available from Apple's public preview site.

Apart from a new feature or two, tvOS 11 focuses majorly on fixing bugs and boosting credentials of the Apple TV 4 in the performance department.

Apple actually makes downloading iOS 11 really easy, but there are a few steps you should do first. The software is now out and ready to download for users. However, as mentioned earlier, tvOS 11 is the first time that company's public testing pool has been extended to include the Apple TV's underlying firmware.

iOS 11 is compatible with iPhone 5S and above, iPad 5th generation and above and iPod Touch 6th generation devices. However, need not worry, as you can easily un-enrol yourself from the public beta program whenever you want.

Apple releases the software in beta to get feedback from its army of testers. And if your device is at risk, that means all your data is at risk, including whatever Health data you might have on your iPhone. Users will then have to install a configuration profile and restart their device. You can read about the 11 biggest features coming to iOS 11 here. You'll just connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac, put it in recovery mode, and restore it to the backup you made before you installed iOS 11. Now, the public betas for both the new software versions have gone live, and can be experienced right away. Apple recommends connecting it to iTunes and creating a local backup. Translation support was also added. There's also a new, redesigned App Switcher to make things even easier.

A new app dock: The dock is now everywhere. Just tap on Settings General Software Update and install any new beta update.

There are also new filters, and Portrait photos on the iPhone 7 Plus have been improved too. More than that, though, with an iPad you get access to the App Store, with its superior suite of software compared to Android tablet offerings. These new formats promise to halve the size of every photo and video taken on the iPhone 7, drastically reducing the amount of device and cloud storage used.

Augmented Reality: Using the built-in camera and motion sensors, Apple is helping developers to integrate high-quality AR experience for iPhone and iPad.

You'll also get an email inviting you to download the iOS 11 public beta. You'll then provide an Apple ID and other information. The official release of iOS 11 is not going to be until sometime later this year, likely September.

Here's everything you need to know about the iOS 11 launch, including how to get the update NOW. It looks a lot like Android's brief thumbnail that's displayed after a screenshot is taken, but Apple is making it functional.

One of the biggest changes will be to Apple's long-running Siri virtual assistant.

iOS 11 brings with it fresh features like the ability to send money to friends via iMessage and a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" tool which bans all notifications, calls and texts when the iPhone detects a person is driving.

Siri has become more natural and more intelligent, and now offers Translation into Chinese, Spanish, French, German or Italian.
