What it is: Apple released iOS 12 beta 11 just three days after releasing beta 10.
Want to know when the next iPhone is coming out? It’s as simple as tracking Apple’s iOS beta program. On Friday, Appel released iOS 12 beta 10. Now on Monday, just three days later, Apple released iOS 12 beta 11. With such a rapid uptake in beta versions, it’s safe to say that Apple is readying iOS 12 for the public after ironing out the major bugs.
Since Apple is releasing iOS 12 betas so rapidly, it might be tempting to install the beta. Don’t, unless you have a spare device. Just because a beta is getting close to release doesn’t mean that it’s actually stable. You don’t want to lose your current data such as photographs or messages. Backup your iPhone or iPad and then install the beta if you must, but with so many betas coming out in rapid succession, that means the final release is due soon, possibly as early as the first week of September.
Therefore it pays to wait and not rush into using iOS 12 beta just to get a week’s advance notice before the final version comes out. If you’re really tempted, simply read about the latest features and then install the final version of iOS 12 when it’s available. You’ll spare yourself heartache by skipping the betas but even then, always make backups. Your backups are the only lifeline you have keeping you from total disaster.
