iOS 11 Beta Download: As we all know, Apple launches an updated version of their exclusive mobile operating system, known as the iOS, every year. Originally launched in 2007 alongside the iPhone, the iOS has come a long way. The newest version, the iOS 10, was announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2016 and finally released in September just days before the iPjone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus’s unveiling. As was expected from it, the iOS 10 took Apple fans by storm when it first surfaced, thanks to the host of new features that reintroduced several existing apps in a brand new avatar. Its integration with the new 3D Touch technology in the iPhone 7 was also extremely well-received.
But before we go into the downloading bit, there are a few queries that we’d like to clarify. We’d recommend you to go through them before you decide to jump on the bandwagon.
What is UDID?
To sign up for the iOS 11 Beta program, you will have to provide us the Unique Device Identifier (UDID) of whatever Apple device that you are using. It’s worth mentioning that the UDID is 40-characters long and is a unique combination of numbers and alphabets. As for wondering what exactly do you need the id, the fact is that the UDID helps Apple track your device and sends crash and bug reports that’ll end up helping iOS become better.
How find my UDID?
There are two ways of going about it. One is when you copy it from Xcode, and the other involves copying it from iTunes. We recommend you don’t make a mistake with the steps. It’s probably worth mentioning that this currently the single way to find an Apple Watch’s UDID.
Step 1: Connect your Apple device to your Mac and launch Xcode.
Step 2: Now open Windows, then go to Devices and select your device from the options shown.
Step 3: There should be a 40 character UDID string in the Identifier field. Make sure you copy it.
1# Connect your iOS device with Mac and open iTunes.
2# Select your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch when it appears in iTunes.
3# Click on the “serial number” that appears on the left to switch to UDID.
4# Now copy the UDID using either Edit menu or ⌘C.
How To Install iOS 11 Beta Using UDID?
Here we have got four simple steps to follow. Nothing too intimidating but we’d recommend you first understand these and the follow these carefully.
1. Like we mentioned before, you’d need to backup your device before installing the new OS.
2: Go to the official Apple beta registration page and sign up with your unique device identifier code, or UDID.
Note: Signing up for an Apple Developer Beta Account generally costs users a substantial amount of money. In case you wish to get your Beta registration in a much more convenient manner, all you have to do is to fill in the form provided below with your UDID and additional details. In this way, you can get your developer beta account for much cheaper without having to go through the arduous process. We will take care of the entire business for you, but make sure you have your UDID ready.
3. Next, download the iOS 11 Configuration Profile into your iOS device. At this point, you’ll have to follow the installation instructions as they appear.
3. After that go to Settings > General > Software Update.
4. And in the last step, a number of prompts to download and install the beta software would appear, simply follow them, but carefully without making any mistakes.
How does the iOS 11 Beta work?
As mentioned before, Apple makes the Beta versions available a few months prior to the actual release date. All Apple users can participate in the public beta program and provide valuable feedback to the company while using the Beta, and the iOS 11 Download will be no different. As someone who is new to the testing, you can begin your participation in the Apple Beta Software Program by signing up for it on Apple’s official page (you can find all the details below). After you sign up, you need to enroll your Apple device (with the help of its unique identification code) to be granted access to all the public betas of the macOS or the iOS. Giving feedback is easy as well, as each public beta comes coupled with its own Feedback Assistant application via which you can report issues directly to Apple that you may come across.
