    Apple today released the first public beta of iOS 11.1 to its public beta testing group, just a day after seeding the beta to developers and a little over a week after releasing the iOS 11 update to the public.

    Beta testers who have signed up for Apple's beta testing program will receive the iOS 11 beta update over-the-air after installing the proper certificate on an iOS device.

    Those who want to join the beta testing program can sign up on Apple's beta testing website, which gives users access to iOS, macOS, and tvOS betas. iOS betas are not always stable and should not be installed on a primary device.

    While Apple has promised that some major features like peer-to-peer Apple Pay payments and iCloud support for Messages are coming in beta updates, those features are not present in the iOS 11.1 beta.

    iOS 11.1 seems to feature only small changes like a tweak to add multiple emoji suggestions to the predictive text options on the built-in keyboard. There's also an updated camera icon under Restrictions, a new animation when tapping the status bar to scroll upwards, and a faster unlock animation.

    iOS 11 is a major update to the iOS operating system, introducing significant design changes, a revamped Lock screen experience, a new Control Center, ARKit for developers, new app features, a new App Store, and an entirely reimagined interface for the iPad that includes a Dock, Drag and Drop support, and a new App Switcher for better than ever multitasking.

    I think it said it was 1.95GB OTA, does that seem high?

    Some random bugs, fixed some previous ones though. One of the really nasty ones on Ipad's.. landscape mode within an app, turn back to portrait.. crash.. So that's not a fun one. Sometimes it won't crash right away, just lock up for 30 seconds then work. That's a combo of IOS bug and application, obviously depending on the app. On the phones.. haven't noticed any huge bugs, just more minor ones. You won't notice much of a change compared to 11.0 really.

    1.96 for me on my 7! Not high though, when you go from public release to a beta it downloads the full-sized software image.

    I hope this fixes the Carplay issue of no longer working with Siri.

    My iPhone 6 has crawled to a glacial pace since I updated to iOS 11. Even 11.0.1 didn't help. My phone hard crashes 3-5 times a day. I hope 11.1 fixes that.

    Huh. I just used Siri this morning to queue up an album to play on the way to work. Didn’t have an issue. Does it not work at all for you?

    Get ready for a Tsunami of revisions.

    Maybe they will get it fixed in about 6 to 8 months after a half dozen versions :rolleyes:

    If anyone figures out the interaction with apps during a phone call bug, please let me know.

    Oh yes, the emojis will make up for the lack of a clear GUI, display problems and battery drain.
    It's all make-up. :)

    Was ios11 supposed to offer a performance boost? If not, given how ios8 was the original for Iph6, I hear folks say that you should update no more than one major version of iOS, perhaps 2, in order to prevent... well, such performance hits.

    There aren't any particular "rules" in place. People decide for themselves basically.

    I've seen the Siri bug when trying to get access while plugged into my sux audio port. No response. Turned off all Siri functions, restarted and turned them on and it seems to be working ok... for now. Cheers

    I'm having the same issue. Siri works with CarPlay though and when my iPhone's plugged in through USB, but if it's not plugged in, Siri doesn't work over bluetooth, even though my phone is connected through bluetooth. I tried un-pairing and repairing bluetooth, but it still doesn't work. I hope Apple release a fix for this and I hope it's not going to be on the car manufacturers' end to release an update for this, else that will never happen.

    iOS 11 GM was end of the line for me, I'm afraid. These incremental updates are seldom exciting enough to be running beta software everyday.

    When I do the five finger app close, all the app icons on desktop are gone... on iPad Air2 and 10.5” Pro... home button close method works fine...

    Already submitted feedback.

    Apple responded... works okaywith_ the [Reduce Motion] setting off...
