It has been one week since Apple officially released iOS 11 to the public, and now Apple is moving right along with the next beta version for an upcoming update.
Apple today seeded the first developer beta for iOS 11.1. This follows the public launch of iOS 11.0.1, which released just yesterday, as a minor upgrade to the mobile operating system. As is par for the course with these types of seeds, registered developers can find the new software via Apple’s dedicated developers website. Once developers have the proper configuration profile on their device, they can also install the new software over-the-air.
As far as what is new in iOS 11.1, that remains unknown at this point. However, Apple has already confirmed that several different iOS 11 features would be available in a future update to the platform, so this first beta could be integrating them.
Those features include iCloud for Messages, Apple Pay Cash, which allows customers to quickly transfer money within iMessages, and Apple is also planning on rolling out new emoji characters in iOS 11 as well.
At the time of publication, the first developer beta has not revealed anything new, but, if any discoveries are made, we will update this post accordingly, so stay tuned.
Apple will surely be seeding a public beta of iOS 11.1 at some point in the near future, which will let even more people test out the pre-release software ahead of its public launch.
