Apple has started rolling out the fifth developer betas of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 with important bug fixes, according to Apple’s Developer Webpage. These updates come a little over a week after the re-release of iOS 17 & iPadOS 17 beta 4 with an updated build. Along with the re-release of beta 4 last week, Apple also rolled out the second public betas of iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14 Sonoma, tvOS 17, and watchOS 10. We can expect the third Public Beta for these versions to be released within the next 24 Hours.
iOS 17 brings in a ton of new features and changes including a new Live Voicemail Feature, personalized Contact Posters, NameDrop Interactive Widgets, Standby Mode, precise search filters, and more. On the other hand, iPadOS 17 includes a new Lock Screen, a new PDF Experience, Health App, and more.
The build number of these updates is 21A5303d and you can expect the size of the update to be around 1.0 GB -1.2 GB on your iPhone & iPad. The size of the update depends upon the device that you have and the software version you’re updating from.
Users who are registered as a developer on www.developer.apple.com can opt-in to receive beta updates by going into Settings>General>Software Update>Beta Updates and selecting iOS 17 Developer Beta or iPadOS 17 Developer Beta. Do note that these versions are not stable and are meant for testing purposes.
Users can also sign up as a Public Beta Tester for iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 on www.beta.apple.com to install the beta software.
Along with iOS 17 & iPadOS 17 Beta 5, Apple also released the fifth developer betas of macOS 14 Sonoma, tvOS 17, and watchOS 10. The final versions of these will be released to the public this fall, most likely in September.
