Yesterday Apple released iOS 11 beta 9 for developers, marking the first time an iOS beta has reached number 9. It was also a quick turnaround release, since beta 8 was out just three days prior.
What’s new in iOS 11 beta 9? As expected, not a whole lot of new features, but rather bug fixes and performance improvements behind the scenes.
YouTube channel EverythingApplePro has again taken a look at iOS 11 beta 9 versus iOS 10.3.2, to note changes. He says a 3D Touch lag bug appears to be fixed, while iOS 11 beta seemingly hints at some ‘iPhone 8’ features, as spotted by beta testers. Specifically, one screenshot of the time moving to the upper left corner, as seen in iPhone 8 homescreen mockups, and another user seeing ‘rounded’ upper left and right corners, again hinting at upcoming design features from iPhone 8.
This ninth iOS beta also has a slightly higher Geekbench score compared to beta 8 and iOS 10.
