The iOS 17 developer beta has been officially launched and this time installing on the iPhone is more complicated.
Apple has presented iOS 17 for the iPhone with many new features and the odd surprise, for example that of the compatible models. The iPhones that are compatible with iOS 17 are not the same as those that were compatible with iOS 16. The release date in iOS 17 seems clear and Apple has revealed that the iOS 17 developer beta is now available for download.
Downloading a beta on an iPhone is not highly recommended if it is your main device, may contain serious errors that affect its operation. There may be a lot of apps that don’t work properly, so we only recommend installing these early betas of iOS 17 to developers who want to test their apps.
Install the iOS 17 developer beta on your iPhone
To install the beta for iOS 17 developers you must be registered as a developer. He iOS 17 developer profile no longer exists as such, so its installation is more difficult this year. Popular websites like betaprofiles will not work with iOS 17 and it seems that only those with a developer account will be able to beta test the system.
- Access the Apple Beta Developer Program and become a member.
- Open the Settings app on your iPad.
- Go to the General section.
- Then enter the Software Update section.
- Finally access Beta Updates.
- Select iOS 17 beta.
Installing a beta can generate problems in your devices. There may be glitches and errors, as well as applications that do not work because they are not compatible with the new system. On previous occasions, bank apps have given problems, even WhatsApp has stopped working in some beta of the system.
Therefore, install the iOS 17 beta at your own risk. To go back to iOS 16 you will need to restore your device and use an iOS 16 backup, as iOS 17 backups are not compatible with iOS 16.
