Apple has just released beta update for its next major smartphone and tablet firmware. This iOS 11 Beta 5 update is mainly for developers. So, if you are a registered member of Apple’s developer program, download iOS 11 Beta 5 IPSW or OTA update for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch by logging in to Apple’s developer page using your developer account details. Here are the details about the update.
iOS 11 is being dubbed as Apple’s biggest leap in years when it comes to the overhaul of mobile and tablet software. Mostly, beta 5 updates for the next major firmware update release are rather incremental but this is not the case with the iOS 11 beta 5. It’s the fifth developer seed of iOS 11, that brings important new changes to the mobile platform. Global release of the iOS 11 is scheduled to drop at the back end of September for public.
Although the release date is still far away, but as anyone with the experience with software development would tell you that time is always on short supply to get every aspect of the major firmware update in perfect order before the release to general public. Often times, big software update is accompanied by issues particularly on devices sporting older hardware. Therefore, all care has to be taken before pushing firmware that works seamlessly on both old and new hardware. That’s why Apple regularly releases beta versions of the next major firmware update so that developers get the chance to test the software firsthand and help the company spot glitches in the day-to-day working of the operating system. We expect iOS 11 to be fully ready by the time of it arrives the next month.
Apple introduced many critical improvements in its previous iOS 11 beta 4 update. The company seems to be heading in the right direction with iOS 11 development process. In the last beta 4 update, fixes for issues related to AirPlay working were pushed forward, moreover, it also addressed nagging issues with the 3D touch. Furthermore, improvements to the basic functioning of the ARKit framework were also made a part of the overall beta update improvements. This new ARKit framework will take the app usage experience on the iOS devices to a whole new level. Also, brace yourself for a wave of new stock app icons in the upcoming iOS 11 update.
This new Beta 5 update, just like the previous beta 4 update, had brought features that are intended to streamline the end-user experience by bringing much needed fast performance and improvements in power efficiency of devices on which its installed.
