The iOS 11 release date probably won’t land until the fall but you should be able to try the iOS 11 update long before its official release.
Apple’s still publicly focused on iOS 10 and its upcoming iOS 10.3.3 update but we expect focus to shift to the next version of iOS in a few short days.
iOS 11 rumors are starting to heat up as we push toward the summer. Apple isn’t talking about its next operating system but all signs point to a launch next week at WWDC 2017.
Assuming Apple sticks to its release protocol, an early version of the iOS 11 update should be released next month giving select iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users the chance to hop off the iOS 10 update.
Apple hasn’t confirmed an iOS 11 beta but we don’t expect the company to close off early access to developers and iOS users taking part in the Beta Software Program.
There’s a very good chance Apple will release an early version of the iOS 11 update in June and today we want to walk you through some things you can expect from Apple’s iOS 11 beta release for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Our predictions will help you set your own expectations (especially if this will be your first time trying an iOS beta) as we push toward WWDC 2017 and the rumored iOS 11 launch.
iOS 11 Beta Release Date
If Apple releases an iOS 11 beta, and we're confident it will, you can expect the company to confirm the release during its WWDC 2017 keynote on June 5th.
On June 5th, Tim Cook and other Apple executives will take the stage to address developers and thousands of Apple enthusiasts and consumers watching around the world.
We expect Apple will use the stage time to talk about upcoming software updates including iOS 11 and new versions of macOS, tvOS, and watchOS. We also expect it to briefly talk about beta updates for the new operating systems.
If Apple sticks to the protocol its used for several years now, you can expect an iOS 11 beta release shortly after the conclusion of the WWDC 2017 keynote on June 5th.
