Apple’s Rolling Out Beta 8 of iOS 11 to Developers

After releasing the seventh developer build last week, Apple today began rolling out the eighth beta of iOS 11 for testing on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch before an initial rollout to the public. At this point, we’re likely not very far away from seeing the release of the update for iOS since this is beta 8, a number the company has rarely reached with its beta programs.

To install the new build, head over to Settings > General > Software Update. Tap “Download and install” next to the iOS 11 Developer beta 8 listing and you’ll be good to go. I recommend jumping on a Wi-Fi network first alongside plugging in your device beforehand as a) you don’t want data overcharges on your bill and b) you don’t want your phone or tablet to die during the installation process.

iOS 11 packs a revamped Control Center, redesigned notifications, improvements to Siri including an all-new voice, Do Not Disturb While Driving, and an all-new interface for the iPad with better productivity features, a macOS-style Dock, and a new multitasking view. There’s even an official Files app for all iOS devices that lets you access files stored on your device without having to hunt down a third-party service to do so.

We’ll update this article with any changes we find in the latest build.
