Apple Seeds Fifth iOS 11.3, macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 & tvOS 11.3 Betas to Devs – Updated
Apple released today the fifth beta builds of its upcoming iOS 11.3, macOS High Sierra 10.13.4, and tvOS 11.3 operating systems to application developers enrolled in the company’s Apple Developer program.
Today’s iOS 11.3 beta 5 (15E5211a), macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 beta 5 (17E182a), and tvOS 11.3 beta 5 (15L5208a) come just a week after the fourth beta updates and are available for installation on your registered devices running a previous beta version via the OTA (Over-the-Air) update system.
Developers who haven’t yet managed to update their devices to the latest beta release offered by Apple can download the beta profiles right now from the Downloads section on their Apple Developer accounts to prepare their apps for the upcoming iOS 11.3, macOS High Sierra 10.13.4, and tvOS 11.3 operating systems.
Here’s what’s new in iOS 11.3, macOS 10.13.4, and tvOS 11.3 beta 5
As for the changes implemented in the new beta updates released by Apple today, we can only report that tvOS 11.3 beta 5 now shows a TV Provider sign-in prompt during the initial setup screen, and there’s no need for a remote to complete the upgrade process on a supervised device.
There doesn’t seem to be any important changes in the iOS 11.3 beta 5 and macOS High Sierra 10.13.4 beta 5 updates. Apple plans to release the final iOS 11.3, macOS High Sierra 10.13.4, tvOS 11.3, and watchOS 4.3 operating systems to the public in the spring, which could mean by the end of the month.
Until then, we expect Apple to release at least two more betas for the upcoming semi-major updates of its operating systems, starting with the watchOS 4.3 beta 5, which should be available tomorrow, March 13, 2018, along with the public beta versions of today’s iOS 11.3, macOS 10.13.4, and tvOS 11.3 beta 5 releases.
Update: Apple also released the fifth beta of the upcoming watchOS 4.3 operating system for Apple Watch developers, along with the fifth public beta builds of iOS 11.3, macOS High Sierra 10.13.4, and tvOS 11.3. Public beta testers who want to install them can find detaild installation instructions (here, here and here).
