Apple Seeds iOS 11 Public Beta 4

Apple's Software
August 8, 2017

Anyone interested can now download iOS 11 public beta 4 directly from Apple. It arrives one day after iOS 11 beta 5 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:

  • The Messages in iCloud feature has been removed and will return in a future iOS 11 update. That feature allowed users to sync all of their messages in iCloud.
  • Both the Camera and Settings icons have been tweaked.
  • A new icon in the Now Playing portion of Control Center allows users to quickly select audio sources.

The removal of Messages in iCloud was definitely interesting as Apple even took the time to highlight the feature during the WWDC keynote in June.

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 fourth beta version of tvOS 11 and macOS High Sierra.
