Apple introduced iOS 11 to the world at its WWDC 2017 keynote. Following the event Apple has released Developer Betas. Before you go ahead to download and install iOS 11 beta, you should be aware that this is the first beta of a major version, which means there are going to be tons of bugs. Hence, there are a few things you should consider before you start the installation process.

1. Backup Everything

As you are going to run a beta software on your device, it could be unstable and you may lose some data. Therefore, it is very important to back up everything beforehand in order to restore back to an earlier stable version when needed. You can either use iTunes or iCloud to do this. Or you can selectively back up important files using third-party software iCareFone.

2. Free Up Enough Space for iOS 11

If you’d like to install iOS 11 beta over-the-air (OTA), you’ll need to make sure there is enough available space on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. We suggest that you free up at least 2GB space for the new iOS so that everything goes smoothly.
