    Apple today seeded the seventh beta of iOS 11 to developers for testing purposes, just a week after releasing the sixth beta and over two months after introducing the new update at the Worldwide Developers Conference.

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

    Today's beta introduces a new Apple Music icon in the Control Center when no music is playing. It used to be a placeholder iPhone image.

    Apple's release notes say there's a new known issue that could cause users upgrading from iOS 11 beta 5 to beta 6 or later to see their updates stall indefinitely. The fix is to delete the update from Settings > General > iPhone storage and then re-install.

    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 will see a few more weeks of testing ahead of a prospective September release date alongside new iPhones. We are getting closer to the end of the beta testing process and should see a golden master release candidate in just a couple weeks.

    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 also released a new iOS 11 public beta for its public beta testers. iOS 11 Public Beta 6 can be downloaded over-the-air immediately.

    Good! Beta 6 was less stable than 5. Hopefully many bugs fixed!

    Can iPad "Mission Control" stop crashing now?

    Can Safari be compatible with the new Smart Invert?

    More seeds than the bottom of my budgie's cage. They may have dropped the ball over the past couple of years but when it comes to chucking out seeds, Apple would put any garden centres to shame ...

    We're officially into the weeklies. Let's hope it keeps up. Surprised we don't have a date for the conference yet.

    But the real question is, are there more emojis?

    Guys don't bother. I just now downloaded it, and can attest that it's littered with bugs. Stay away! I repeat stay away!

    Circle Sept 6th on your calendar. I think you'll need it to be free.
