Apple Releases iOS 17.5 Public Beta 3 Ahead Of Final Release

Apple has today made the iOS 17.5 beta available to the public a day after it was also released to developers. This move comes a week after the second betas were also released to public beta testers.

Public beta testers who are registered for such things can now download the new beta via the Settings app and then ensuring that the have beta updates enabled.

The update is then performed via the usual mechanism. However, we would always recommend that people only install the betas on a test device and not one that they rely on.

The iOS 17.5 beta isn’t one that will bring a raft of new features to users, especially outside the European Union. Those inside the bloc will be able to download apps from developers’ websites for the very first time, although those developers must meet strict criteria in order for Apple to allow that.

This is the latest impact of the EU’s Digital Markets Act, a move that also required Apple to allow the use of third-party app marketplaces in the same region.

Apple hasn’t yet confirmed when we can expect the iOS 17.5 software update to be made available to the public, but we expect that it will happen within weeks. Beyond that, Apple is set to preview the iOS 18 software update at the WWDC event that will kick off on June 10.
