After releasing the fifth build earlier this week, Apple today seeded beta testers with the sixth beta of iOS 11.3 for debugging on devices like the iPhone and iPad before an initial release to the public. This build comes in at just above 58MB, therefore indicating we’re nearing the end of the beta program for the upcoming software release.
To install the new build on your registered device, head over to Settings > General > Software Update. Tap “Download and install” next to the iOS 11.3 beta 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 11.3 includes new upgrades for ARKit such as 2D and vertical object detection alongside 1080p experiences. New Animoji are also here in the form of a lion, dragon, bear, and skull. We’re also getting our first glimpse at Business Chat for corporations alongside your own Health Records collected by the Health app. Music videos in Apple Music, improvements to the News app, better security for HomeKit, and support for Advanced Mobile Location (AML) are all also present.
iMessages in the cloud are also now being tested.
We’ll let you know of any further changes in today’s upgrade right here.
