If your Apple devices are running on iOS 11, macOS High Sierra or tvOS 11 beta, it’s time to check for an update. Apple recently released the third public beta for these operating systems, bringing some improvements and small features.
Apple has already released beta 4 for iOS 11 developers. Of course, public beta updates are usually more stable hence the slower update. So, what’s new with iOS 11 beta 3? According to 9to5Mac, iOS 11 public beta 3 finally brings back the ability to force close apps by swiping up. Previously, iOS 11 require users to long press, and then press the little “x” button located next to each app. Other notable changes include the ability to add apps into a folder located in the dock, ability to view older notifications in Notifications Center, improved “dark mode”, and more. Check out 9to5Mac’s video for the full update.
For those of you who are interested in testing out public beta software from Apple, you may register your device(s) at the company’s beta program website. You can register your compatible iOS device (iPad is recommended since the most notable changes are on the iPad), macOS High Sierra (available for macOS Sierra devices), and tvOS.
Do proceed with caution because while public beta software are a lot more stable than what developers get, you might still run into bugs and errors. Apple discourages users from using their primary devices to test out public beta software versions.
