Apple iOS 11 unveiling
Next to the sixth public beta, Apple also unleashed the iOS 11 beta 7 aimed at developers. The anticipated release date of the final version remains in September when the next-gen iPhone should arrive.

Yesterday, Apple seeded the seventh beta of iOS 11 to developers. Next to it, the sixth build for public testing also surfaced. These builds arrive just one week after the sixth beta for developers became available and more than two months after Tim Cook introduced iOS 11 at the Worldwide Developers Conference.

The new beta replaces the placeholder iPhone image in the Control Center with a new Apple Music icon that can be spotted when no music is playing. Unfortunately, a new issue has been discovered and users upgrading from beta 5 to beta 6 or 7 would not be able to complete the update. The fix available at this time requires them to delete the update from Settings > General > iPhone storage and then re-install it.

The long list of major changes that iOS 11 is expected to bring once it launches includes peer-to-peer Apple Pay, Do Not Disturb driving mode, a refreshed Control Center, updated design elements, various improvements to Siri, and much more. It should arrive with the new iPhones this fall.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
