The iOS 11 third beta has been released by Apple today – What’s new?

Apple today released a third developer beta of iOS 11 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

To get the new beta you need to be registered developer and member of the Apple Developer Program.

To deploy iOS 11 beta 3 (build number 15A5318g), use the Software Update mechanism in the Settings app on your device with an appropriate configuration profile installed.

The profile can be obtained from Dev Center.

What new features are implemented in the new iOS 11 beta?

The biggest modifications have been done to the Control Center, which is significantly changed from iOS 10. The new iOS 11 third beta Control Center is consolidated into one tab, rather than the three we’ve previously been used to. Making it smaller some functionality has been lost.

Another new feature, the Notification Center, also got a nice boost in the iOS 11 third beta. You now get all of your notifications with a single swipe down, unlike before, when you had to swipe once to get the notification screen, and a second time to actually see all your notifications.

The Compass App has seen a small improvement to make more of your phone’s built-in sensors. There’s a small crosshair inside the compass dial that shows you how your phone is sitting relative to completely flat. It should help make the compass more usable and accurate, and also makes using your phone as a makeshift level that little bit better.

For Developers:

ARKit for developers will result in a wide range of new augmented reality apps, while a Core ML SDK will allow apps to become a whole lot smarter. iOS 11 is also the biggest update ever for the iPad, with a new Dock that introduces much-improved multitasking, a Files app for better managing files, improved Apple Pencil support, a revamped App Switcher, and system-wide drag and drop.

That’s all that we discovered in the new released today by Apple.
