Apple releases iOS 11.4 beta 5 for testing purposes

Apple iOS is getting smarter every year. Last year, Apple celebrated the 10th anniversary of its iPhone by releasing iOS 11, the latest version of the iOS operating system. iOS 11 is not a huge update like iOS 10, but there are still a lot of new things that encourage you to upgrade.

iOS 11 has been through several major updates since the launch day in an attempt to add up to a better user experience. Earlier this week, Apple officially released the fourth public beta of iOS 11.4 for testing purposes. iOS 11.4 beta 4 mostly focuses on bug fixes and security enhancements.

However, iOS 11.4 beta 4 still includes some errors that may ruin your day. That’s where iOS 11.4 beta 5 comes to the rescue. The Cupertino company today seeded the fifth beta of iOS 11.4 to developers. The beta was initially aimed for developers only, but the public beta came out just hours later.

Like the public beta 4, the fifth beta comes with a number of bug fixes, while improving the overall performance. If you have already enrolled in Apple’s beta testing program, then you can get the update now by heading to the Settings > General > Software Update. Once you are in, install any available updates.

iOS 11.4 beta 5 includes the fixes for the volume slider not working in the Control Center issue. This is one of most common issues in iOS 11.4, and users were dying for a permanent fix. In reality, Apple previously acknowledged the issue and promised to offer the fix. However, it was nowhere to be found in previous beta versions.

iOS 11.4 public beta 4 received mostly negative reviews from users and tech experts worldwide. We have heard some of the issues iPhone owners are facing with Apple’s iOS 11.4 beta 4, ranging from 3D Touch not working to duplicated settings results. The beta 5 is expected to satisfy iPhone and iPad owners worldwide.

The final build of iOS 11.4 will be debuted at this year’s WWDC event. The new software update is expected to bring back Messages on iCloud and AirPlay 2, two features that were once a part of iOS 11.
