Cupertino tech giant Apple has seeded the third beta of its upcoming iOS 11.4 update to developers on May 1. The company has seeded the third beta just after two weeks of seeding the second beta. Apple has released it's iOS 11.3 last month in April, it was a major update as it addresses several bugs and offers new features.
This new beta release is for registered developers. So if you are a registered developer then you can download the new iOS 11.4 beta from Apple's Developer Centre or you can also look for the OTA (over-the-air) update once the proper configuration profile has been installed from the Developer Center.
The iOS 11.4 beta update comes with a new ClassKit framework (The ClassKit framework is used to privately and securely share student progress with teachers on activities assigned in school-managed environments and should be used only for educational purposes.)for educational institutions, it will support the new features which was announced at Apple's March 27 event.
IOS 11.4 update will bring features which were originally present in the previous iOS 11.3 beta, but unfortunately, it was removed ahead of the release. The features include supports for Messages on iCloud, which is designed to store the messages in the iCloude rather than saving it on the device. This new feature will improve the syncing capabilities.
Right now, the messages which are sent or received on the iPhone units are saved in the devices, even though the user has signed in to their Apple ID, there is no cross-device syncing.
Messages on iCloud will allow users to download all of their iMessages on any Apple devices according to his/her convenience. A message which is deleted from one device will remove it on all devices. Older messages and attachments are also stored in iCloud. This will help in saving the valuable storage space on your iPhone.
The new update will bring the support for AirPlay 2 feature, which will allow users to play the same music on different devices. Also, add the Apple TV and speakers connected to AirPort Express to the Home app.
