Apple releases iOS 17 developer beta 5

Release those software updates folks, iOS 17 beta 5 is now available. Fifth developer betas of iPadOS 17, tvOS 17, watchOS 10, and macOS Sonoma are also available today.

Apple unveiled iOS 17 at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference on June 5, teasing new features coming to iPhone including StandBy, direct voicemail, AirDrop updates, and more.

iOS 17 has been available as a pre-release version since early June. Starting last month, Apple expanded testing of iOS 17 through its public beta program as well.

This year, Apple made it available to developers to join the beta program without paying the $99 yearly fee. The only difference between developer and public beta now is the availability of new versions.

Early beta builds are released to developers a lot of the time to make sure there are no significant breaks for public beta users. However, both versions become closer to release at the same time.

We expect iOS 17 to be ready for prime time next month. Apple should announce the official launch date in September during the iPhone 15 event. We expect the next Apple event to be held around September 13th. In the meantime, follow our coverage to stay up to date.
