What’s new in iOS 11.2 beta 1?
Surprisingly, this new update comes at a time when iOS 11.1 is still in beta stage. With five beta versions out already, Apple still hasn’t made it public yet.
Firstly, this update fixes the calculator bug, which results in erroneous calculations of the simplest arithmetic operations.
A weird animation bug present in the calculator has also been fixed. It resulted in numbers being skipped due to the speed of the animation. This animation has now been removed completely. The user no longer needs to pause after pressing each digit.
Secondly, it also fixes an emoji keyboard bug.
Registered developers can download it from the Apple Developer Center or via an appropriate OTA profile. If you don’t have access to any of these, you can download the IPSW file or OTA profile using the links given below.

Will you update?
This new version still doesn’t come with the highly anticipated Apple Pay Cash feature. It seems like Apple is still testing it rigorously and hence, it is available only for testing to Apple employees.
As far as safety is concerned, you can update to iOS 11.2 beta 1 freely. There’s no jailbreak update for iOS 11 firmware yet and it will surely be compatible with the upcoming versions.
Will you update to iOS 11.1 beta 2 or stay on iOS 10.3.3? Let us know in the comments section below.

I stay on 10.3.3 as the version expects jailbeak
That’s nice, Sandeep, but I don’t think that version will get a jailbreak.
