After getting iOS 11 into your iOS device, users can report bugs and issues to Apple through the included Feedback app.

Just follow the on-screen instructions and iOS 11 public beta will be downloaded to your phone. Apple has a full tutorial on how to do so here. If you don't have one, you can create one first.

As Beta software are prone to crashes and bugs, Apple suggests users to install it on a secondary device and not their primary devices.

Apple announced the all new iOS 11 update for its range of devices earlier this month. Of course, you won't be able to install iOS 11 when it rolls out this fall, as the new operating system requires at least an iPhone 5s or later. Also, it means that you can now download the update and experience the features hands-on.

But should you? iOS 11 comes with lots of new features and improvements, which we'll give an overview of below, but it's also still in beta, which means there are various potential problems to be aware of.

Sprint rises on wireless partnership talks with Charter, Comcast
Comcast slid 17 cents, or 0.4 percent, to $39.42, while Charter dipped $1.12, or 0.3 percent, to $331.53. For now, this appears to put on hold negotiations between Sprint and competitor T-Mobile .


iOS 11 brings with it fresh features like the ability to send money to friends via iMessage and a "Do Not Disturb While Driving" tool which bans all notifications, calls and texts when the iPhone detects a person is driving. As long as you have a valid Apple ID, you can participate. The beta update is obviously not a final product.

The software will be available from Apple's public preview site. The official release of iOS 11 is not going to be until sometime later this year, likely September.

Installing the operating system works similarly to installing regular software updates. Select the iOS 11 Beta Software Profile, tap Delete and confirm you want to remove the public beta.

Apple is rolling out the first iOS 11 public beta build for everyone owning an iOS device. The dock has a set of apps that the user has selected to stick as well as a set of recently opened apps. Once the download is complete, the latest iOS will be installed on your device automatically. The company also includes deeper Apple Pencil integration, a specialized Files app for file management, powerful augmented reality features and more. However, should you take the beta version and try the new version?

To download the update, head over to beta.apple.com/profile to download the configuration profile for your device.
