As always, beta builds come with the tag of being a rather test piece of code, and it might not be stable enough to be used as a daily driver. Before exploring the world of betas, it’s recommended to make a backup of your device.
To backup your iOS device, connect it to your PC/Mac and launch iTunes. In the backups option, select the option to create a full backup to your computer and encrypt it.
Enroll Your iOS Device For iOS 11 Beta
Step-1 From your iOS device go to beta.apple.com/profile. Here, sign in using your Apple ID.
Step-2 Then, tap on the button that says “Download Profile”.
Step-3 After that, follow the instructions on the screen to install the profile. Once done, just restart your device to apply the changes.
Update Your Device to iOS 11 Public Beta
Step-1 Once the profile is installed, go to Settings and tap on General. Once there, tap on the Software Update option.
Step-2 The device will now check for updates. Your device would now show the available iOS 11 Public Beta Update; download and install it.
Note: The iOS device might restart multiple times during installation, but don’t worry, that is the normal procedure.
Step-3 And that’s pretty much it. Once your device boots up, your device would have been updated to the latest iOS 11 Public Beta 1.
