Apple releases iOS 11.4.1 & macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 beta 5
In the early morning of July 3, Apple released the fifth beta of iOS 11.4.1 and macOS High Sierra 10.13.6. The last developer beta was published in the early morning of June 25, one week later. This is more than a month after the release of iOS 11.4.
If you are a developer and have a developer account, the full firmware package for the new beta system for all operating systems is available for download through the Apple Developer Center. Of course, devices that are already in the developer’s beta state can be updated with OTA if the correct configuration file installed. As for the public beta version, it will usually be available a few days after the developer preview release, the fastest one day apart.
The build version number of the fifth developer beta for iOS 11.4.1 is 15G5077a, while the version number of the previous beta is 15G5074a.
For macOS High Sierra 10.13.6, the fifth developer beta version build number is 17G62a, while the last version beta number is 17G54a.
However, whether it is iOS or macOS, these two developer beta updates do not contain any new features or update points worthy of attention. Apple’s version update log has only a few update details, so this update is updated. The content is most likely composed of regular bug fixes and performance improvements.
Currently, Apple also provides developer beta and public beta versions of the “big version” of these two operating systems, namely iOS 12 and macOS Mojave 10.14. It is certain that the official version of this new system will wait until the fall. Will be released.
Anyway, any beta of iOS is as described in its name, and everything is still in beta. In most cases, the performance may not be as good as the official version, and even very unstable or data loss, so if your The device is the primary device for daily use, and it is not recommended to try it. But if you are interested in beta testing, or if this is your non-main machine, it’s best to back up critical data before you try it.
