  • iOS 11 Beta 2 New Features, Changes, And Installation Tips

Apple just launched the iOS 11 public beta for the whole world to try, and holy heck, don't get too excited yet.

The release of the public version of Apple's iOS 11 beta 2 should be available soon enough.

With the public beta program, you can download and install iOS 11 to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch.

Before you install the beta, though, you have to understand that this is pre-release software. The Cupertino, Calif. -based tech giant released the update Monday, allowing the general public to test the software before its official debut later this year. It contains an all-new Control Center, notifications work differently, drag and drop, and there's a new Files app.

Are you interested in installing iOS 11 public beta on your device? Available to the public in autumn and as a developer preview today, iOS 11 improves the Photos app by adding the ability to loop Live Photos, and to create long-exposure pictures as well as implementing a new compression method known as HEIF that offers higher quality images at half the storage size on devices.

You just head to the Beta Software Program page and express interest by signing in with your Apple ID and password.

Apple has flung open the doors to early birds for access to its latest iPhone and iPad software. If you forget to tap on the thumbnail then iOS 11 will automatically save the screenshot to the camera roll like before. But updating it is easy-you can update over the air in the Settings app, or use iTunes.

First off, not all Apple devices will run iOS 11.

iOS 11 features a ton of improvements for the iPad. It requires erasing your device first, so you better believe you'll need a backup.

When does the final version ship?

Are you excited about trying out the new features coming up with iOS 11.

In the fall-typically it's right around the time the new iPhones come out, which has traditionally been the second week of September.
