4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 11 Beta & 9 Reasons You Should

The final iOS 11 beta fixes problems from previous versions but most of you are better off staying put on an official version of iOS with the iOS 11 release date as close as it is.

Update: The official version of iOS 11 is here. Check out the link below for a list of reasons to, and not to, install Apple’s official iOS 11 update.

4 Reasons Not to Install iOS 11 & 9 Reasons You Should

Apple will officially release iOS 11 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch on September 19th but you can try the final version of the update right now if you can’t wait.

The company’s released an iOS 11 Gold Master for developers. The GM should mirror the final version that’s released for the general public on Tuesday. Apple’s also released a public iOS 11 beta into the Beta Software Program which means anyone with an Apple ID can try iOS 11 for free.

Your testing will help Apple improve future versions of iOS 11. It also gives you a chance to test out some of iOS 11’s most exciting features (Siri Voice Translation, screen recording, Do Not Disturb While Driving, etc) before everyone else.

That said, there are some reasons to avoid the iOS 11 beta especially now that we have an official iOS 11 release date. It’ll break your jailbreak and it’s still pretty buggy.

Apple’s closed off the iOS 10.3.2 update which means that once you make the move to iOS 11 beta, your only option is to downgrade to the iOS 10.3.3 update. If you move your iPhone 5s or another device from iOS 10.2.1 or iOS 9, you won’t be able to go back to that version of iOS.

This change puts a little more pressure on those of you trying to decide if the iOS 11 beta is worth the trouble. For most of you, it isn’t.

If you’re currently on the fence about the iOS 11 beta, dig into this guide. It’ll walk you through the best reasons to try, and avoid, the iOS 11 beta for your device in September.

Install If You Want to Improve iOS 11

Have you ever installed a new iOS update only to discover problems on board your device? If you've experienced frustrating iOS problems, you might want to give the iOS 11 beta a shot. 

The iOS 11 beta lets you try out new features but it also helps Apple improve the software. Fixes for the issues you report might not make it into the final version but we could see them emerge in future iOS 11 releases.  

If you're sick and tired of running into problems with iOS updates, do something about it. Download the iOS 11 beta and hunt for bugs. 

If you find something lurking in the latest iOS 11 beta, make sure you report it to Apple

    I’ve installed the developer beta on an iPhone, and it’s working adequately, but when the public beta comes out I’ll want to switch to that instead. In order to move successfully from a developer beta to the public beta, how should I prepare? For example, should I delete the developer beta profile before enrolling in the public beta program and downloading the public beta profile? Will bad things happen to my phone if I do this — or will bad things happened to my phone if I DON’T delete the developer beta profile, but I just install the public beta profile over it? Please let me know what is best.
