iOS 11 Public Beta 2 rolling out to iPhones and iPads now

Three days after releasing the Developer Preview Beta 3 for iOS 11, Apple has now started rolling out Public Beta 2 to all enrolled devices. There is nothing major in the new update, just minor tweaks and fixes. Some users are reporting an improvement in battery life, while others are claiming that it's “still bad” for them.

Yeah, basically, it's a beta and it's not the best idea to have it installed on your daily driver. But if you are feeling a bit daredevilish and can't wait to test out the cool new control center, the file manager, and all the other nifty features of iOS 11, you can enroll for the public beta by following these simple steps.

If you've been on iOS 11 for a while now, let us know how your experience has been. Is Beta 2 treating you better than the previous build?

I’ve noticed a lot of improvements, but it did kill my visual voicemail.

I have been on the developer Beta and oh God does it sucks. Both my iPad mini battery ran out so fast and froze. Put on charger for hours and does nothing sometime. Sometime it take overnight to finally start charging and I was able to reboot. Wished I never touch this beta crabs.

iOS 11 beta is one of the greatest betas (and I had them since 8); if one is OK with worse battery life, lag and some crashes, one can surely use the beta (I would recommend to those that never used a beta before to wait for the 4th developer or the 3rd public beta). Enjoy!
