iOS 11: Apple releases latest public test version of new software

Apple has released the third version of its publicly available, work-in-progress version of iOS 11, just days after developers got a sneak peek at a series of major improvements to the overhauled operating system.

Although iOS 11 is not officially due out until September, Apple is once again offering owners of compatible iPhones and iPads to chance to sign up to its public testing programme and install the software ahead of time.

Not up to speed with iOS 11 yet? Here's five key things you need to know.

This latest public edition fixes a series of bugs and errors found in earlier releases.

The line-up of features iOS 11 adds to iGadgets includes improved lock screen, an enhanced control centre, more natural-sounding Siri and the long–awaited Files app for turning your iPhone into something more akin to a Mac.

But enticing as all that sounds, it should be loaded onto devices with caution.

If you value your iPhone working snappily and aren’t comfortable with incomplete software, then the iOS 11 beta is best avoided.

However, if you can’t wait until September, head to Apple’s sign up page and you’ll soon be trying out functionality that the rest of the world won’t get their hands on for months.
