    Following the conclusion of today's keynote event where Apple introduced new versions of its iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS software, Apple has provided the first beta to developers, kicking off the iOS 11 beta testing period.

    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.

    Apple is calling iOS 11 its biggest software release ever for the iPad, thanks to the myriad iPad features it includes, like a new dock that supports improved multitasking, a Files app for better managing files, improved Apple Pencil support, a new App Switcher, and system-wide drag and drop.

    iOS 11 also includes many features for both the iPhone and the iPad. There's an incredible ARKit API that's going to let developers build all kinds of new augmented reality apps, and there's also a CoreML machine learning API that's going to allow apps to become a whole lot smarter.

    Peer-to-peer Apple Pay payments are being introduced, Messages is gaining a new App Drawer that makes it easier to access apps and stickers, a Do Not Disturb feature that mutes notifications will make it easier for drivers to stay focused on the road, and Siri, Photos, and the Camera app are gaining huge improvements.

    The iOS 11 beta is only available for registered developers at this time. As it has done in the past, Apple will provide a public beta for public beta testers later this summer, and the software will see an official release in the fall alongside new iPhones.

    Downloaded the full file for iPhone and profile for iPad, both took about 3-4 minutes for 2.7 and 2.0 (approx) respectively. Servers are relatively clear at the moment then lol.

    Anyone notice in the screenshots that the signal strength dots have reverted back to the old-style bars?

    Preferred the dots tbh, signal bars are old fashioned, unless its a debugging feature or something.

    Tempting but downloading right before heading out of town doesn't sound like a good idea. I'll wait a bit.

    Mixed emotions for me. Love that the stupid dots are gone for single strength..... control center looks like a "we have no idea where to put this shyt"

    It's Definitely different. I think in order for me to make a judgment call, I need to get hands on it first. But I agree, it's nothing what I expected and it seems very clustered like.

    Files also comes pre-installed on iPhone, despite it not being mentioned (that I could see).
