iOS 11 Public Beta 2 Release Date

Posted on the 12 July 2017 by Tokitechie @tokitechie
iOS 11 Developer Beta 3 The iOS 11 Public Beta 2 is about to be released after iOS Beta 3 was seeded by Apple yesterday for Developer's review and assessment. There is no specific date of the release just yet but we know for sure that after the release of developer beta, the public beta will come out next. Based on my observations of the gap between the developer's preview and public beta release dates, we can expect Apple to seed the iOS 11 Public Beta 2 within the fourth week of July so if you're a Public Beta tester, there's nothing you can do about it but to wait until the iOS 11 Public Beta 2 arrives to your device. But if you haven't installed any of the iOS 11 Betas, you can go ahead and install the developer's preview (iOS 11 Developer Beta 3) but make sure you know what you are doing as the developer's previews are intended for developers use only while the public betas are refined versions of the developer's previews. The public beta previews are intended for non-developers [and existing developers] who participated in the Apple Beta Software Program. To know how to install iOS 11 Beta, follow this link: How to download and install iOS 11 Public Beta the Tokitechie way? iOS 11 Updated Dock Here are the latest changes and new features of iOS 11 based on the iOS 11 developer Beta 3: The following contents are borrowed from 9to5mac as I don't have access to the developer betas. While we wait for the iOS 11 Public Beta 2, here are the changes we expect that we might get from the Public Beta 2. I will be posting screenshots when the iOS Public Beta 2 becomes available.
