iOS 17 is finally available in public beta, how to install the update on your iPhone

That’s it, Apple has released the first betas of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 to public beta testers, opening up the new software to the general public for the first time since June’s Worldwide Developers Conference.

After several weeks of waiting, Apple has finally released iOS 17 public beta, and it’s easy to install the preview on your iPhone. This is your opportunity toexplore new features a few months before the stable release arrives of the OS in the fall, at the same time as the next iPhone 15.

Those enrolled in the developer program have so far been able to gain access to the dedicated developer builds, but these initial builds tend to be irritating and unstable, and can even crash your device. The public versions are much more stable, but however, they are not without problems.. Then install the new beta knowingly, and preferably on a secondary device.

  • Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad running at least iOS 16.4.
