    Apple today seeded the eighth beta of iOS 11 to developers for testing purposes, one week after releasing the seventh beta and more than two months after introducing the new update at the Worldwide Developers Conference.

    Registered developers can download the new iOS 11 beta from the Apple Developer Center or over-the-air once the proper configuration profile has been installed.

    iOS 11 brings quite a few design changes, including a customizable Control Center and a new Lock screen that's been merged with the Notification Center. Peer-to-peer Apple Pay payments are coming in the Messages app, which is also gaining a new App Drawer, and there's a Do Not Disturb While Driving feature that's meant to help drivers stay focused on the road. Siri, Photos, the Camera app, and more are also gaining new features and refinements.


    ARKit for developers will bring a range of new augmented reality apps and games to iOS devices, and a new Core ML SDK will let developers build smarter apps. iOS 11 is also the biggest update 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 a system-wide drag and drop feature.


    iOS 11 is available for both registered developers and public beta testers and be released to the public in September alongside new iPhones. We are getting closer to the end of the beta testing process and should see a golden master release candidate in approximately a week.

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

    Update: Apple has released iOS 11 beta 7 for public beta testers.

    Well, the battery life on my iPhone 7Plus 128GB was horrible in the previous beta. So I hope things will revert a bit now.

    I'd almost forgotten Monday was now Weekly Beta Day.
    Yup. That's how these usually go. Let's hope there's no show stoppers.

    I'm just wondering how the are going to update the ios of all iphone 8 already produced... I mean, let's imagine they already started the production, they should have what, 300'000 unit awaiting latest ios version to be flashed... I'm curious to see how they are doing it, remote control using OTA?

    I’m on public beta on my iPad Pro and have random instances where I tap and nothing happens or I’m unable to scroll in Safari. I hope this text beta fixes that.

    Will the Golden Master build be the same as the public build?

    For the iPhone 7, there was a day 1 update. I think it was 10.0.1 or something like that. Depends how late in the process they have to box these for shipping.

    I doubt it's already installed, but they sometimes issue updates post-production that are available to download from release day.

    That's what the GM name implies. In the old days it referred to the gold-coloured CD master carrying the final build sent off to manufacturing.

    Nobody knows. But I think that it won't be the same.

    The GM is often times the same as the one the public gets a week later. But if I recall correctly, this wasn't the case last year.
