iOS 11 Release: 4 Things to Expect & 4 Things Not To

iOS 11 Release: 4 Things to Expect & 4 Things Not To is a post by Adam Mills from Gotta Be Mobile.

Apple’s iOS 11 release plans are extremely vague so we want to help fill in some blanks.

The iOS 11 release date is confirmed for the fall. Apple hasn’t specified a date and it’ll probably be awhile before we get a firm day to look forward to.

The company’s also running an iOS 11 beta ahead of the update’s official release. We already know a lot about the iOS 11 beta but there are a few important details still missing in action.

As we push into the summer it’s important for iPhone and iPad users to set correct expectations about the iOS 11 beta and the final iOS 11 release later this year. For instance, we probably won’t get a new iOS 11 beta every week and we most likely won’t see Apple release the final version of iOS 11 in December.

Some parts of the iOS 11 release are difficult to predict. That said, we’re able to fill in some gaps using Apple’s iOS release protocol and our years of experience with iOS updates and betas.

This guide outlines what to expect from the iOS 11 release date, release time, and the beta. It also goes over a few things you shouldn’t expect from Apple.

These early predictions will help average iPhone and iPad users, people new to the iOS operating system, and those of who’ve never followed a beta set realistic expectations.

Expect iOS 11 Beta Problems to Extend Into the Final Release

Expect iOS 11 Beta Problems to Extend Into the Final Release

Let's start with a few things to expect from the iOS 11 beta release.

Expect iOS 11 beta problems to continue right up until Apple releases the official version of iOS 11. And expect some iOS 11 beta problems to carry over into the final release. 

Apple and its army of beta testers (us included) will squash tons of problems ahead of the official iOS 11 release in the fall. That said, problems always slip through the cracks into the final version.

When release day arrives you'll want to approach iOS 11 with caution. Many of you will come out of the installation unscathed, others will run into bugs and problems like battery drain, lag, and app compatibility issues. iOS software is never perfect. 

If you plan to try the iOS 11 beta and/or install the final version on your device, now would be a good time to start getting familiar with iOS 11 problems and fixes.

We've put together a guide to these problems and we've also put together a list of fixes to help you combat those problems should they appear on your device.
