The Best iOS 11 Features We've Tried So Far

Apple on Monday, June 26 released the first public beta of iOS 11, offering iPhone and iPad with extra test devices the opportunity to sample the upcoming operating system prior to its debut this fall, AppleInsider reports.

In any case, if you want to try out the new iOS 11 features then you can visit this website and register your compatible iOS device for the Beta program. Ideally you should install the beta on a secondary device and keep in mind to back up your device data first. You might see bugs, your iPhone or iPad could crash more often, and some of your apps and services might not work. When done, your device will automatically restart, and you will have the iOS 11 Public Beta 1 installed on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. TechCrunch, for instance, said the operating system "feels like a completely new beast on the iPad".

iOS 11 also brings with it new Photos and camera features such as Loop and Bounce effects for Live photos that create continuous video loops and long exposure for capturing time and movement. The app is also available from the Help menu of any app.

If this doesn't work out either, the last option would be to not update your device to iOS 11 for the time being.

Once logged in, users will have to accept the agreement, select the device and download the iOS software. Once that's done, look for a software update, and you'll be running the first draft of iOS 11. The official release of iOS 11 is not going to be until sometime later this year, likely September. Apple executives like CEO Tim Cook have always been fans of augmented reality and the platform is expected to have a much higher profile through app developer support on iOS 11. Install it and you will be prompted to download and install iOS 11 shortly after.

But the best features for iOS 11 show up on the iPad, which has become far more Mac-like in iOS 11 thanks to several useful multitasking features.

What is the iOS 11 public beta? You too can join in on the "fun", if you really want. There are also a number of iPad-specific improvements, such as a new dock that allows you to fit many more apps on it, and a new way of implementing Slideover and Split View. Choose the installation file you downloaded before, and let iTunes do its thing. All you have to do is, just go to Settings General Software Update and install any new beta update that is rolled out during the course of testing.
