The latest beta 5 build of iOS 11.3 is here. Apple has seeded it to registered developers and here’s how you can download it without a developer account.
What’s new in iOS 11.3 beta 5?
Labeled 15E5211a, the latest beta build of iOS 11.3 beta 5 firmware doesn’t come with a lot of new improvements. Its release notes are almost exactly the same as that of 11.3 beta 4.
A lot of bugs and glitches in the stock Music app are now fixed. Unfortunately, the 3D Touch user interface bug is still present in iOS, which indicates Apple hasn’t implemented bug fixes properly.
This update weighs just over 250MB and, hence, it is clearly not the Golden Master update. Surprisingly, iPhone 7 users have a received a special update that is around 700MB!
The next beta update will hopefully be the GM build of iOS 11.3. Until that happens, you can give the latest update a whirl on your device.
Just press the OTA download link below and get cracking. Alternatively, you can also download the IPSW firmware file for a clean upgrade.

Is updating worth it?
Obviously, there’s no point in updating just yet because this is a minor update.
I believe Apple will roll out the GM version sometime during the last week of March or in early April.
As for jailbreak enthusiasts, I would recommend sticking with the lowest possible version, just like always.
