Today, 26th June 2017 Apple Released the new version of iOS 11 for selected devices. It is strange because they only release the beta versions with similar names, but now they named the new update as iOS 11 beta 2 Update 1. The new update is mainly targeted on older devices like iPad 12.9, iPhone 5S and iPhone SE because some people reported that they had some issues when downgrading from iOS 11 to iOS 10. When they try to downgrade from iOS 11, it will be stuck in the recovery mode. In the latest update, they fixed this issue along with an update of iOS 11 public beta 1 for beta testers. Now everyone can easily test the iOS 11 for free.
