How to Download iOS 17 Public Beta on your iPhone

Apple has officially launched iOS 17 Public Beta for compatible iPhones. The Public Beta is the best option for anyone who wants to try out iOS 17 but would rather not deal with any serious issues.

Since Apple has been beta testing iOS 17 for a month, the current beta version is far more stable than the three betas before it. As a result, those who value consistent functionality will find the iOS 17 Public Beta to be an ideal alternative.

Everything that has been included in previous developer betas of iOS 17 is now available in the public beta. More enhancements and adjustments are anticipated for the forthcoming public betas leading up to the Fall release of iOS 17.

If you’re interested in testing iOS 17 on a nearly stable platform, all you need is a compatible smartphone. In case you were wondering, these are the iPhone models that are compatible with iOS 17.

How to Install iOS 17 Public Beta

Anyone who has an iPhone that meets the requirements can now download the Public Beta of iOS 17. There is no special preparation required, unlike developer betas, and no need to sign up for a developer account.

Despite the fact that the iOS 17 Public Beta is more stable than the developer betas, it’s important to note that it’s still beta software and may have flaws. The iOS 17 Public Beta should be tried at your own risk.

Take a Backup of your iPhone

You should take this precaution before installing the iOS 17 Public Beta. A backup is a copy of your computer’s hard drive. When upgrading to a beta, there’s always a danger that some of your data will be lost in the process. You should back up your data before installing the iOS 17 beta, since if you decide you don’t like it, you’ll need to revert.

You can make a local copy of your data using iTunes or Finder, or you can use iCloud. I suggest keeping copies of your data locally, where you can access them quickly and make any necessary changes.
