Apple just released IOS 11 Beta 4 for developers

    Hello guys, apple recently released a new beta of iOS 11 ahead of the final iOS 11 release in September. You can try the new updates to test see the new features and updates stated below. And one draw backs is that the beta 4 is only available if you’re a registered developer. While Apple also has a public beta program, the company usually waits a few days before releasing new developer betas in the public beta channel. But i don't think it could be a good idea to download the updates when it's still in beta version. I have stated some of the features of IOS 4 below.

    Note;But if you’re currently testing iOS 11, head over to the Settings app of your iPhone or iPad to update. macOS High Sierra, watchOS 4 and tvOS 11 also received a beta update today.
    Also, the upcoming operating system is a huge step forward for the iPad. It feels like you’re using a completely new device as you can drag and drop files, app icons and more across the operating system. There’s even a dock, a new app switcher, and a Files app so that you can launch apps and manage your documents more easily.

    And if you don’t have an iPad, the most striking change for the iPhone is the completely redesigned Control Center. You can now customize your shortcuts. There are a ton of small and big changes under the hood as well.

    Below are some of the New Features of IOS 11, everything you should know and how it works.
    • The notification screen has been redesigned and looks like the lock screen. It’s confusing at first.
    • There’s a new app drawer in the Messages app. I’m not a fan of the new design as there hasn’t been any killer iMessage app so far. But you can now send money to your friends using Apple Pay in a conversation thread.
    • Siri has a more natural voice. More importantly, you can type your query if you’re in a loud environment or it’s late at night and everybody is asleep.
    • The Photos app now supports GIFs! You can even create GIF-like looping videos and Boomerang-like videos. The Memories tab and face detection are getting a big update.
    • If you have an iPhone 7 or an iPhone 7 Plus, you’re going to capture photos and videos in HEIF and HEVC. It means that you’ll be able to store a ton more photos and videos on your device. If you share something, iOS will convert the file to JPG or H.264 (unless you’re sharing it with someone running iOS 11).
    • There will be indoor maps for airports and malls in Apple Maps. The company is slowly adding those maps right now.
    • You can’t test AirPlay 2 just yet as there isn’t any speaker with AirPlay 2 support. But it still works the same way — your phone sends lossless audio to your speaker using your Wi-Fi network. Apple has improved latency, added multi-room support and phone calls are no longer going to interrupt your music.
    • The redesign of the App Store looks great. But let’s see if it improves discovery and developers are happy about it.
    • If you’ve enabled iCloud, the iMessage database automatically gets uploaded to iCloud — your messages stay encrypted. Some users have 5GB or 10GB of messages, photos and videos, so it should free up some space. But iOS backups are still not end-to-end encrypted on iCloud. Apple still has the key.
    • Similarly, if you don’t have a ton of space on your phone, iOS can automatically purge your unused apps. Your settings and data stay on your device. But the next time you’re going to open a purged app, your device is going to redownload it first.
    • If somebody tries to join your Wi-Fi network and has an iOS device, you get a prompt asking if you want to share your Wi-Fi password.
    These are just a few things stated as there are much to be covered. Apple keeps on bring new things that iPhone and iPad users can benefit from. It's your choice to try out this new beta updates and you can give them your reviews. Comment below and let me know what you think.
