Apple Releases Eleventh iOS 12 Beta for Testing

After releasing the tenth build last week, Apple today seeded developers with the eleventh beta of iOS 12 for testing on the iPhone and iPad. Meanwhile, the ninth build of the new software has begun rolling out to public testers.

To install the beta on your registered iPhone or iPad, head over to Settings > General > Software update. From there, you’ll see the listing for the build. Just tap “Download and install” and wait for your phone or tablet to complete the process. I recommend plugging in your device beforehand so you don’t run out of power before the installation is complete.

The eleventh beta of iOS 12 will build on top of the foundation Apple laid for the software back at WWDC 2018, likely by including further stability improvements and security enhancements. The new operating system will provide much better performance for devices stretching back to the iPhone 5s, offer better notification management, let you know how much time you’re spending on your device, enable Siri Shortcuts, and more. iOS 12 is focusing more on refinement over a bunch of new features, but that isn’t exactly bad all things considered.
