iOS 11 Beta was just open to developers on 6 June and many users already can't wait to have their first taste of the fancy new feature of iOS 11. Since the public beta version of iOS 11 won't be available until late June, here we will show you two ways to install iOS 11 Beta on your iPhone without developer account. The methods are free and easy-to-use. Anyone can get iOS Developer beta on their iPhone 7/7 Plus or older models without being a developer.


Preparation Before Installing iOS 11 Beta

Before rushing into anything, you may want to pay attention to several things:

  1. Avoid installing iOS 11 developer beta on your main iPhone. It is better that you try the beta version on your secondary iPhone. After all, the developer beta version is not stable enough.

  2. Make a full backup of your iPhone before installing iOS 11 beta into it. A backup to iCloud or computer is essential to avoid data loss.

  3. Get your iPhone fully charged before the installation.

  4. Make sure that there are enough free space on your iPhone (at least 1GB).
