How to download and install iOS 11 public beta on your iPad

Apple has officially released the public beta of iOS 11 for testing purposes ahead of the final release this fall. This means that you can install Apple’s latest version of iOS on your iPhone or iPad without the need for a developer account. iOS 11 is not a significant software update to the OS, like iOS 10, but it comes with a lot of new things that makes what you have loved much better.

iOS 11 really shines on the iPad, thanks to a whole slew of exciting features, including a persistent Dock, Drag and Drop feature, a new Files app, and even more. If you now own an iPad, you can get the iOS 11 public beta right now.

In this step-by-step guide, we will go through the steps to install iOS 11 public beta on your iPad. Before we begin, keep in mind that iOS 11 won’t support all iPad models when it launches this fall, so make sure that you now have a compatible iPad model (iPad mini 2 or newer).
