Following the first seed of iOS 11.1 beta to developers, Apple is following up with the same release for public beta testers.
Apple today seeded the first public beta for iOS 11.1 to public testers. This follows the public launch of iOS 11.0.1, which released recently, as a minor upgrade to the mobile operating system. IF you are already registered as part of the public beta program, you can keep an eye out for the new beta seed through the software update utility, in the Settings app.
If are not signed up for the public beta, but want to be, you can sign up through Apple’s dedicated site right here.
If you want to see what’s new in iOS 11.1, you can check out our round up right here. 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.
The first public beta is the same software as the first developer beta, so there should not be any additional features discovered in this release. However, if anything new is found in this beta, we will update this post accordingly. And, as usual, keep in mind that it is pre-release software, so it will probably be buggy, so be wary of installing it on your daily driver.
