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 with an iOS 10.3.3 update still in the cards for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners. In a few weeks, company focus will likely shift to the next version of iOS.
iOS 11 rumors have started to heat up as we’ve pushed toward the summer. Apple isn’t talking about its next operating system but all signs point to a launch in June 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 suddenly close off early access for developers and iOS users taking part in the Beta Software Program.
There’s a very good chance Apple will release an early version of iOS 11 to developers and the general in a little over two weeks 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.
Expect an iOS 11 Beta Release Date in June
If Apple decides to release an iOS 11 beta, and we're very confident it will, you can expect the company to confirm the release during its WWDC 2017 keynote on June 5th.
On June 5th, we expect Tim Cook and other Apple executives to address developers in attendance and the thousands of Apple enthusiasts and consumers watching the keynote in countries around the world.
Apple isn't talking about the announcements it will make at the keynote but there's a very good chance it will use the stage time to talk about iOS 11, 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.
