Reasons Not to Install iOS 11 Beta & 5 Reasons You Should

Apple's HomePod speaker pumps up the volume on tech rivals (+ video)

"By blending digital objects and information with the environment around you, ARKit takes apps beyond the screen, freeing them to interact with the real world in entirely new ways", according to Apple. You can read about some of them in this post.

A developer beta version of iOS 11 was released yesterday. After that, a version of the IPSW file will be pushed to your device over the air.

If an app has been delisted, hasn't been updated in years, or if the developer itself has said there are no plans to update it, then you might need to find something to take its place. And that's because this method of accessing iOS 11 Beta does not require you to have one.

The biggest change is likely to see banking apps allow users to make payments from within their apps and London's Oyster card offered as a direct payment option on iPhone, bypassing Apple Pay altogether.

Warning: If Apple somehow manages to close this loophole after you've completed the below tutorial.

If you've disabled auto-downloading of apps in Settings iTunes & App Store on any of your devices, you'll need to follow this tutorial on each device to be certain you aren't overlooking an app that's on your iPhone 7, say, but not your iPad Pro. If that is the case, here's how to do that. To access your software update page, simply choose Settings General Software Update.

Apple won't make iOS 11 available through its public beta program until next month, but now is as good a time as any to join and get ready for iOS 11. If still not there repeat the above process.

Have you ever installed a new iOS update only to discover problems on board your device?

In addition to the warning upon opening an app, iOS 10.3 can show you a list of all affected apps that are now installed.

The company showed off a new 10.5-inch iPad Pro alongside a refreshed 12.9-inch model at the WWDC event, and both are set to get iOS 11 when it launches in autumn this year. So, if by that time you still want to try out this new OS early, you can do so.
