iOS 11.4 Beta 3 is Now Available – Here’s How to Download it for Free
Apple released iOS 11.4 Beta 3 to developers yesterday and you can download it for free even if you don't have a developer account with the company. Here's how.
Download iOS 11.4 Public Beta 3 and Test Out the Latest Beta from Apple for Free
iOS 11.4 is slowly progressing towards the final release and Apple is currently seeding beta builds to developers so that they can try out the update ahead of time and tune their apps and games accordingly. However, even if you are not a developer, you can test out Apple's beta software using the company's official Beta Software Program. And luckily for us, iOS 11.4 Beta is available to download straight off it.
Once you sign up by going to beta.apple.com using your iOS device, you can simply download a profile onto your device after which the latest beta will become available to you for download over the air (Settings > General > Software Update). Since the update is available over the air therefore you won't lose your files and settings once the installation is complete. However, we will still advise users to backup everything either using iTunes or iCloud. Whichever route seems easy for you, go ahead with that.
If you do encounter bugs and crashes in iOS 11.4 Public Beta 3, which won't be surprising at all since it's unfinished software, you have the complete option of downgrading your device back to the current public release, which is iOS 11.3.1. But remember, once you downgrade, you will lose all your data and files. Think twice before going ahead with the downgrade process. Everything must be backed up properly if you are planning to revert back to the public release.
iOS 11.4 is a minor update compared to iOS 11.3. It adds AirPlay 2 and Messages in iCloud to the list of features, something which were supposed to be a part of iOS 11.3. Hopefully, by the time iOS 11.4 is available to download for everyone, Apple won't change its mind once again regarding the aforementioned features and actually make them available for every single supported device out there.
