    Was half tempted to install the dev beta/public. What would you recommend?For my new iPad Pro, needs to be stable enough but don't mind minor bugs.

    If you have any doubt, don't install it. No-one has tried the beta that just dropped and it may have critical bugs. This isn't "it's a beta" snark or anything. Serious answer. If you have a shred of doubt, don't do it.

    edit: I should clarify that this is my opinion and I'm not under the impression it's a universally correct answer (or that there even is one)

    Take this with an obvious grain of salt but I feel at this stage you’d be alright

    Do you have another device that you can use the hotspot on? I just used my iPad Pro to update my phone and then used the phone to update the iPad :D

    Never. Update sizes are too big. People may blow through their entire month's data in one update. Also, WiFi is typically a lot more stable. Or you can use the Hotspot workaround as mentioned by Roncito.

    Last beta was stable enough for both my iPhone and iPad Pro 9.7”. Just some minor bugs that you’d expect with any beta release. Battery life was definitely worse than iOS 10 if that’s an issue for you though. I would hope todays build will be even better.

    Downloading IPSW now!

    Looks like "The “Messages in iCloud” feature has been removed in iOS 11 beta 5 and will ship in a future software update to iOS 11. Users can continue to receive and store messages on each device, and they can continue to backup and restore messages using iCloud Backup."

    Best bet is to stick with 10.3.3 until enough people have run this for at least a few days at least to find most of the potential showstopper bugs. There are a number of apps that don't play nice with 11 so far, so it's better to find out through someone else's misfortune than your own. ;)

    I was back on beta 1 on my iPhone, but was wondering if these later betas are closer to their final release.

    6, maybe 7. Most X.0 beta's stop around 5-6.

    It would be very hard to argue that later betas aren't closer to final release than Beta 1.

    Yes, but there may be regressions and new problems in them.

    This preparing update bug on my Air 2 is driving me crazy. Keeps getting stuck, having to reboot, then it gets stuck again.

    Reminders icon still flipped, settings icon is darker inside the gear. Camera icon looks a bit different perhaps.
