Update: This beta is now safe to install from beta 2 onwards

The iOS 11 Public Beta finally dropped on Monday night and for users in the UK at least it appears to contain a pretty serious issue that is enough to make you have seconds thoughts about upgrading for the time being…

Upgrade Not Appearing…

After a couple of hours of trying to get the installer to appear I finally got the message I wanted ‘iOS 11 Public beta. Download & Install’. Myself and several other users are reporting issues even getting to the download stage. This appears to be something to do with the old iOS 10 beta profile that users had installed. The way to get the update to appear if you really want to install it is as follows:

So what you need to do is go to and follow the instructions to remove yourself from the beta program. Once you’ve done this make sure you remove the profile from your device too. Head back to and re-register for the beta program, download the beta profile, restart your device and then you should now have the update!

“Cannot Connect to….”


Before you take the plunge please heed this warning ⚠️ – The App Store, iTunes Store, Podcast Store, Home Sharing, Apple Music & Beats 1 are not available for a high number of users in the UK. It doesn’t however appear to be affecting iPads, only iPhones.


As you can see bug reports have been submitted by several users however I have not heard anything back from Apple Developer Relations more than 24 hours after reporting the issue. If there are any updates then I’ll post them on here but for the time being don’t install iOS 11 unless you really want to.
