What’s new in iOS 11.4 beta 5?
Unlike previous beta versions, this update, too, brings major improvements judging by its size.
Its build number of this version is 15F5077a and its size is 2.19GB on iPhone X and around 2GB on other Apple devices.
Even though its size runs into gigabytes, it is not a GM (Golden Master) update.
The reason behind this is that Apple never adds letters at the end of the build number of GM updates.
AirPlay 2 and Messages in iCloud are still present in this update, as are a few bugs and glitches. Some users have reported that the black dot iMessage crash bug is yet to be fixed.
You can download this version onto your Apple device using the IPSW firmware file via iTunes.
Alternatively, you can just install the OTA profile and install the update directly from Apple’s servers.

Should you update?
The GM update is just around the corner so there’s absolutely no point in upgrading at this point.
According to me, Apple will seed the Golden Master by the next week or just before the WWDC, which is due to be held in June.
Moreover, this looks like a minor update that offers little to no improvements to the user despite its size.
