iOS 11 Public Beta 3

Apple Seeds iOS 11 Public Beta 3

Apple's Software
July 25, 2017

Anyone interested can now download the third iOS 11 public beta directly from Apple. It arrives one day after iOS 11 beta 4 was seeded to registered developers.

Once you sign up on Apple’s site, you’ll download a special certificate to your device and then download the software.

Here are some of the changes and improvements public beta tester should expect:

  • On the Notification Center page, you can swipe right to open an individual notification or swipe left to close it.
  • The icons for Notes, Contacts, and Reminders have slightly been altered.
  • There is a new introductory screen when opening Notes and Photos that detail some of the changes.

If you’re interested, you can read and see more about the changes here.

You can take a look at our how-to and find out what to expect if you join the public program. And while the idea of downloading pre-release software might sound fun, there are a number of caveats to consider.

The software will officially land to the public sometime this fall. Take a look at our special section to read more about the changes in iOS 11.

Apple also released the third beta version of tvOS 11 and macOS High Sierra.
