What’s new in iOS 11.2 beta 3?
Apple has also seeded the beta 3 version of macOS 10.13.2, watchOS 4.2 for Apple Watch, and tvOS 11.2 for Apple TV.
Just like its predecessors, it focuses mainly on bug fixes rather than introducing revolutionary new features.
The beta 3 fixes the extremely annoying audio bug that prevents an app from playing audio in case something interrupts it. For example, a call would stop music playback in Spotify until the user restarts it.
It also fixes the freeze issue that happened when a user plays videos on sites such as YouTube or Twitter. With this update, you will no longer experience a freeze when watching video content.
Unfortunately, battery life is still an issue and hasn’t been improved yet.
If you are a registered developer, you can grab the appropriate IPSW and beta profile from Apple Developer Center. If you are a normal user, use the download links given below.

Should I update?
Yes, you should update if you are sitting on an earlier version. Since there’s no jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1-10.3.3, you can upgrade to experience the cool new features of iOS 11 firmware.
iOS 11 does have a jailbreak but it’s private. Therefore, iOS 11 is more likely to get a jailbreak and that is why I recommend updating.
Will you be upgrading your iPhone or stay on iOS 10? Let us know in the comments section below.
