Apple has been testing iOS 11.4.1 for just over a month, and so far there is nothing to show except for unknown "bug fixes" and "under the hood improvements". And that's still true with the release of iOS 11.4.1 Beta 5 on Monday, July 2, which comes exactly one week after Beta 4. Now the question arises, when will the stable update be shared with everyone?
According to the build number for iOS 11.4.1 Beta 5 it is still unclear whether this will be the last beta before a public release on iPhones and other iOS devices. Traditionally, at the end of build numbers, Apple adds an "a" indicating that they are beta builds, and the last beta before a wide version omits the "a", suggesting it's likely the last beta version or "Golden Master" is. Of course, Apple has thrown out stable releases so far without an obvious golden master.
But overall, iOS 1
If you & # 39; If you want to stay in the beta version of iOS 11.4.1, you must be a developer or public beta tester with a valid configuration profile to upgrade to iOS 11.4.1 beta 5. Then open Settings, tap "General" and select "Software Update". Then follow the instructions on the screen to download and install iOS 11.4.1 Beta 5 on your iPhone.
If you prefer to jump to the beta version of iOS 12, which is open to both developers and public beta testers, it's quite easy to do, and you'll actually have something new to play. While some of your apps may crash and the overall system may be slow, sometimes unresponsive or self-crashing, it's worth the risk if you want to try everything Apple has to offer first.
