    Apple today seeded a revised version of the second iOS 11 beta to developers for testing. The new version has a build number of 15A304j, compared to 15A304i for the original second beta, which was released last Wednesday.

    The software update appears to be available for select iPhone and iPad models. It's unclear what revisions have been made at this point.

    Registered developers can download the iOS 11 beta from Apple's Developer Center, or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed. A public beta will be released later this month.

    iOS 11 is Apple's biggest software release ever for the iPad, with a new Dock that introduces much improved multitasking, a Files app for better managing files, improved Apple Pencil support, a revamped App Switcher, and system-wide drag and drop.


    The update also includes many features for both the iPhone and the iPad, including a redesigned and customizable Control Center, a new Lock screen that's merged with the Notification Center. Peer-to-peer Apple Pay payments are being introduced in the Messages app, which is also gaining a new App Drawer, and there's a new Do Not Disturb feature that is designed to help drivers stay focused on the road. Siri, Photos, the Camera app, and more are also gaining significant improvements.


    ARKit for developers will result in a wide range of new augmented reality apps, while a Core ML SDK will allow apps to become a whole lot smarter.

    For full details on all of the new features included in iOS 11, make sure to check out our extensive iOS 11 roundup.

    So, B2 will be PB1 - I figured this much. Some were thinking B3 will be PB1. I'm guessing Apple fixed the downgrade issue.

    It's likely this is the sole reason for the re-release. Can't be seeding public testers with software that they can't back out of.

    Can you imagine the forum threads!

    We have what... 13-14 pages of a thread dedicated to just that now and it's only the "developers" installing it.

    There might be pitchforks and lanterns at the doors of the spaceship if they couldn't downgrade.

    I think you can stop saying the public beta will come out later this month. We're on the last week of the month. It's now later this week. :)

    I'm guessing those of us on the "older" b2 will have to download the ipsw and alt-click - update in iTunes?

    This update gave me the same stuck on "preparing update" as iOS 11B1 -> B2 did. It just sits there until you exit software update and go back.

    Wonder if I need to download a new profile? My devices say that my iOS is up to date.

    Think I'll be waiting till PB2, and reading comments a few days after it comes out before install. And even then it will be on non critical iPad.

    iPhone 6 at 30MB. B2 broke my bluetooth. Airpods constantly disconnect and my AW2 has been disconnecting. Hopefully this will fix those issues.

    Incidentally, under b2, my Airpod firmware finally updated 3.7.2, but I don't have controls for individual pods.

    Are you getting these sizes from an OTA update from the current 11 b2? I'm not seeing an OTA for this version :(

    It probably wont. Its the same build number with one revision. Probably only fixes one issue, the downgrade problem.

    Yes. Its only available for certain devices which is very weird. Seems to be 22/35 devices that get iOS 11.
