Multymeter.com – Apple officially unveiled the latest operating system for iPhone, namely iOS 17. Not long after its release, now users can test iOS 17 on iPhone. However, the iOS 17 that can be tested now is not the final version of iOS 17. iOS 17 is the developer beta version of iOS 17, that is, the developer beta version of iOS 17 that was released for the developer users to test them and give them feedback to improve the final version of iOS 17.
Before the final version of iOS or commonly called iOS Stable is released, at least two versions of the test operating system were first released, i.e. in the early stages, iOS Developer Beta, followed by iOS Public Beta. In earlier iOS, to access iOS Developer Beta, users must be registered as a developer in the Apple Developer Program.
To use iOS, registration is required with a subscription fee of USD 99 per year. iOS Developer Beta was not made for general users to access easily, but the access mechanism for iOS Developer Beta seems to have changed now. Users can now get iOS 17 Developer Beta more easily and for free, without having to pay subscription fees.
The ease of accessing iOS 17 Developer Beta can be both encouraging and dangerous news, as there are several risks that it is impossible for all users to know iOS Developer Beta, including iOS 17 Developer Beta.
So what are the risks of installing iOS 17 Developer Beta?
Before general users, non-developer users or anyone who is not familiar with the test version of the operating system, you should first understand all the risks of installing iOS 17 Developer Beta on your iPhone.
Risks of installing iOS 17 Developer Beta As mentioned above, iOS 17 Developer Beta is an operating system that is still in the testing and development stage, which is not really intended for public users, but for developers.
Because it is still in the testing phase, the risk of installing iOS 17 Developer Beta is that users are likely to encounter some major bugs or glitches in the iPhone’s operation.
Operating system bugs that are still in the testing phase, for example, some apps on the iPhone, such as banking apps or utility apps, may suddenly shut down. This is because the app is not compatible with iOS 17 Developer Beta.
The risk of installing the upcoming iOS 17 Developer Beta is that there are bugs that prevent iPhone features from working. For example, the iPhone cannot access the WiFi network, Bluetooth is turned off, or the cellular network is turned off. It is also very likely that a bug in iOS 17 Developer Beta causes the iPhone to be unable to load the operating system when it restarts and the process ends up stuck at the Apple logo.
The number and intensity of bugs in iOS 17 Developer Beta is likely to be higher than in iOS 17 Public Beta. The risk of installing iOS 17 Developer Beta in this manner, if you don’t understand it first, will disrupt the activities of ordinary non-developer users.
Developer level users ideally should know the consequences that will result from using iOS 17 Developer Beta. They will use iOS 17 Developer Beta as testing material and report bugs to help improve iOS 17. iOS 17 Developer Beta was basically not released to be used to operate the iPhone on a daily basis.
Apple itself warns that if you want to test iOS 17 Beta, users should use an iPhone that is actually used as a special test device. In other words, users are not recommended to use an iPhone that is used on a daily basis to test iOS 17 Developer Beta.
Those are the risks of installing iOS 17 Developer Beta on iPhone that you need to know. If you are not prepared for the risks, it is strongly recommended not to test iOS 17 Developer Beta and wait until the final version is released.***
