Apple today seeded a third beta of iOS 11 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch to its registered developers and members of the Apple Developer Program. To deploy iOS 11 beta 3 (build number 15A5318g), use the Software Update mechanism in the Settings app on your device with an appropriate configuration profile installed, which can be obtained from Dev Center.

iOS 11 was originally released as a developer-only preview at WWDC in June, followed by iOS 11 beta 2 on June 21 and the iOS 11 public beta on June 26. The first public beta of iOS 11 has the same features as developer-only iOS 11 beta 2.

Here’s Andrew’s hands-on walkthrough of the changes in the previous beta.

iOS 11 sports a redesigned App Store, new iPad multitasking features with the Dock and drag and drop, a Files app, AirPlay 2 with multi-room audio, new Siri capabilities, visual refinements, a customizable Control Center, a redesigned app drawer in Messages and much, much more.

    • Casey Talbert

      They came out and said this is removed

      • Oscar

      • Rohit Jain

        Can anybody tell me ? I have ios 11 beta 2 installed in my phone but now i have checked for beta 3 but it is showing your software is up to date

      • Patrick K

        You’ll have to wait for a couple of days to receive the P.B.3! See as you are a public beta tester. Same here! it should hit you at around 14-17

      • Rohit Jain

        But i have installed developer beta 1 and 2 in my phone …but beta is not showing

      • Patrick K

        That’s the only explanation I can think off. You should recheck your profile configuration then.

      • Rohit Jain

        How to check profile configuration ?

      • Patrick K

        Did you get it from Dev apple or? is it apple signed?

      • Rohit Jain

        Yes now what should i do 🙁 please help

      • Patrick K

        Try deleting the profile, restart the device and reinstall the profile back then check for update,

      • Rohit Jain

        I have already done this but its not working 🙁

      • Patrick K

        Have you tried resetting the phone?

      • Rohit Jain

        No

      • Rohit Jain

        It is showing now … someone helped

      • Patrick K

        Cool

      • Nathan

        Someone filed it as a ‘bug’ to Apple and they replied saying it was intentionally removed.

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    Best news of today!!! Hopefully the connecting to car is fixed. That bugged the shit out of me!

  • zebonaut

    What is the version number?

    • moeman

      15A5318g

  • Unfortunately I am still having issues in logging in to some of my Google accounts. I was really hoping beta 3 would fix this.

    • Michał

      where did you find beta 3 profile?
      ps: im dev apple

  • Abhijeet Gupta

    There’s now UI in health app

  • Oscar

    You can finally swipe away apps for closing them on the iPad. So much better than the system before!

  • Jose Rivera

    I really hope this beta is better than the last two. I had to completely skip out on them because of how bad it was. The first beta completely bricked my 7 Plus and i had to replace it. It wouldn’t restore to anything anymore…

    • altin

      Yep. The only IOS I could bring my iPhone back was the beta 10.3.3

  • Wilber Alexander Flores

    I can now scrobble through Spotify on the lock screen

    • Pierre Heurtebise

      That’s not iOS 11 b3

      • Wilber Alexander Flores

        I tried it earlier on beta 2 and it didn’t work

      • Pierre Heurtebise

        Since Spotify 7.6.0.1136, all premium users can now control their music from lockscreen

      • Y2J: Keeper of the List

        They didn’t even read your first comment lol

      • RobDigital413

        Lol who writes this stuff lol

  • Robert Mathews

    I hate that the lock screen is the notification center, and that the app store is revamped.

  • Can someone please tell me how I can deter iOS from adding every single open app to the new dock?! Having to remove them all manually is becoming pretty tedious and for some reason I can’t find a setting dedicated to this “feature”.

  • Rohit Jain

    Can anybody tell me ? I have ios 11 beta 2 installed in my phone but now i have checked for beta 3 but it is showing your software is up to date

    • Michał

      same

      • Rohit Jain

        I want to update my phone but how can i fix this problem please someone help me out …of this problem

      • Jose Rivera

        The iPhone Wiki has the IPSW for iOS 11 if you’d rather update via a much faster and better method… You can do a clean install of iOS 11 from there too!

      • Rohit Jain

        But why is it not showing in ota ?

      • Jose Rivera

        Sometimes I have a feeling that Apple releases the beta in phases so that way they don’t strain the servers with the beta users.

    • Same. I just went and downloaded the dev profile again on my phone and checked for updates and it did it. Lost emojis know on keyboard.

  • pnh

    Barring any disasters hopefully this will be public beta 2 in a few days.

  • Chris Longden

    Does anybody know if the “Cannot connect to App Store” has been fixed…?

  • Patrick K

    Can anyone tell me about the battery life in beta 3. Did apple fix the battery draining issue?

    • BlackPantherK

      Apparently not…

    • askep3

      You know it’s not an “issue” right, like it’s not s single thing causing it. It’s just s part of the beta that will get gradually better as they optimize it with each update.

  • RobDigital413

    This is the WORST of the iOS 11 betas……lag…..freeze slow UI. I think we will get a beta 4 fast

    iPhone 7 Plus 256 GB

    • T.L. Hall

      Agree. Horrible

  • RobDigital413

    Every time my phone freezes I have to reboot and when it comes on it takes 30 seconds for the screen to be responsive then I unlock and all my iMessage notifications from the past 2 weeks pop up…..

  • Khalouda Trad

    My Touch ID/ home button stopped working after this beta on iPhone 7 Plus. Does anyone have the same issue? I tried everything to fix it but it’s not working 🙁

    • RobDigital413

      My doesn’t work in the lock screen and my phone respirings lags freezes it the worst
      iPhone 7plus 256GB

    • RobDigital413

      I’m going to back it up to the pc…..restore to iOS 10.3 and update to iOS 11 then restore from back up

      • Khalouda Trad

        Thank you Rob I’ll try it when I get home.

      • RobDigital413

        Time consuming but I love my Apple shit man lol unlike most people I use my phone for EVERYTHING

      • RobDigital413

        Before that I would charge it to see for some weird reason it a factor…..but before you restore …..BACK UP TO ITUNES. Icloud won’t back everything up iTunes is thee best backup. And restore from backup AFTER you update from iOS 10.3 to iOS 11

  • RobDigital413

    So I restored my phone but the iTunes downloaded 10.3.2 would not let restore at all. I downloaded 10.3.3 beta shift+restore and boom it worked …..then update OTA TO IOS 11 beta 1…..and not going to update til beat 4 lol https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/df7565f10641c771177b618875622742225f7088e0a13621a6c7f6e3fcf8567e.jpg

    I downloaded iOS 11 beta 3 on my iPhone 7 through Safari using a public configuration profile!! but it was very buggy so i took a 3rd party developer profile and installed it replacing the public one! I tried both ways still not showing me update on OTA and i noticed something strange in my About Version is “11.0 (15A5327g)” How can i have this build number if i am on beta 3? beta 3 has a build number of (15A5318g)
