iOS 11 beta 7 is out: Here's what's new


Android 8.0 Oreo is now officially-official, but Apple is not lagging much behind – while we still have some time before iOS 11 officially arrives, there's always room for a new beta version of that one to arrive. Guess what, iOS 11 beta 7 is now out, introducing a tiny slew of new features to the mix that are quite likely  ending up in the official iOS 11 version sometime next month.

So, what's new in this update. Suffice to say that it's a rather incremental one with few novelties:

  • Volume slider now has a yellow "too loud" section in Control Center (EU only);
  • Smaller clock on the lock screen;
  • New Apple Music icon in the Now Playing section of Control Center;
  • 30-pin-to-Lightning adapter now working as intended;
  • Cellular data stats will reset each month;
  • iPad multitasking will show previews of the resized window panes;
  • Touch ID will be disabled while entering Emergency mode;
  • New podcasts will no longer get automatically downloaded if you haven't listen to the old ones in a while;
  • Numerous bug fixes and other minor interface improvements.

You can check out if the latest beta is available for your device by heading to Settings > General > Software update. This, of course, will only happen if you have enrolled your device in the developer or the public beta.
