Apple Is Already Testing iOS 17.1 Ahead Of iOS 17 Release
Apple hasn’t yet released iOS 17 to the public but it’s been reported that the company is already testing iOS 17.1 ahead of time.
Apple announced iOS 17 during its WWDC event on June 5 and it’s been in developer beta ever since.
A public beta program is also available for those who can’t wait for the expected September release, but it appears that Apple is already looking to what comes next.
9to5Mac now reports that devices running iOS 17.1 are already starting to show up in the website’s analytics, suggesting that people inside Apple are using those devices right now.
There’s no saying when Apple will announce iOS 17.1 or make it available to the public, however. And it isn’t yet clear what it will bring to the table, either.
Before then, Apple is expected to release iOS 16.7 as soon as next month. The update isn’t available in beta form right now however, and it’s unlikely that it will add any big new features considering the imminent arrival of iOS 17.
Apple is expected to release iOS 17 in the middle of September, likely just before the iPhone 15 series of devices go on sale.
New software updates for the iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV are also expected to arrive around the same time give or take a week or three in the case of macOS Sonoma.
