You can now download iOS 17 beta 1 IPSW links, OTA update for your iPhone. Here are the details on this.
Apple today announced the iOS 17 software update for a range of iPhones and now developers can get their hands on the very first beta.
The new beta is only available to those who are registered developers and are signed in using their developer account.
Downloading the beta is managed via the Settings app, and developers will need to toggle the beta setting on if they want to download iOS 17.
Apple has also made the IPSW download files available from developer.apple.com, so those who prefer to install iOS 17 via the iTunes app on Windows or Finder on a Mac can do so. This is also a good way to make sure that you can update your iPhone even if Apple’s servers are struggling under the load, which they might well do during this beta season.
You can read our iOS 17 announcement post to see all of the features that are coming to iPhones later this year. We expect Apple to follow its usual pattern of a months-long beta program, making iOS 17 finally available to the public in or around September. The company is also expected to run a public beta program alongside the developer one, but that isn’t available just yet.
As always, we’d only suggest that people install iOS 17 on a device that is dedicated to beta testing, especially during the early betas. These big new updates can often break things including themselves, while third-party apps can often misbehave.
