IOS 11 beta 9 was released today for registered developers and public beta testers. The latest update comes only three days after the iOS 11 beta 8 update which leaves room for speculation that Apple wants to fix some problem that was supposedly passed on to developers and testers through the last update. However, there have been no reports whatsoever of any irregularities.
The OTA update does not list any changes that will be introduced from the latest update except for bug fixes and performance enhancements.
iPhone and iPad users can download the developer's beta and public beta update of iOS 11 via an OTA update. Registered developers can head to Apple's developer portal, developer.apple.com, and update their iOS devices.
Public Beta update can be received by joining the Public Beta Testing Program by logging on to beta.apple.com using your Apple ID and password from Safari web browser. Once you've signed up for the Public Beta Testing Program, go to Settings > General > Software update > Download and install. Agree to the terms and conditions. Once the update has been downloaded, tap on install now to finish the installation.
Apple has sent out invitations for iPhone launch event for September 12, 2017. The confirmation of launch date also means that the latest smartphones will hit shelves soon. Apple will also roll out iOS 11 in full swing in a couple of weeks.
It is still not certain if Apple will release more beta updates before finally launching the iOS 11 or not.
