Apple pushes iOS 11.2.5 second beta with bug fixes

iOS 11.2.5

Apple released the iOS 11.2.5 second public beta. The iPhone manufacturer has added the beta release to the public beta testing group. Interestingly, the company released iOS 11.2.1 just one week before the second beta release. The release of the iOS 11.2.1 was a big breakthrough since it addressed a security vulnerability on the HomeKit.

The iOS 11.2.5 will be made available for beta testers via over the air (OTA) and who are members of Apple’s beta testing program. However, you need to install the relevant certificate on an iOS device. If you are interested to join the beta testing program, you need to register on the Apple’s beta testing website. After registration, you will be granted access to iOS, macOS and tvOS beta versions.

It is to be noted that iOS beta releases won’t be stable as the final release. Hence, you should install only on those devices which don’t contain important files. If you would like to install the beta release on your existing iPhone, you need to first capture a backup of the files, which includes images and videos including contacts.

The latest iOS 11.2.5 will include not only bug fixes but also security improvements and feature enhancements. However, we don’t have any information about the exact features included with the build. The release is oriented for developers and hence the beta build will mainly feature several bug fixes.

Before proceeding to install iOS 11.2.5, you need to capture a backup of all files and charge the device up to 100 percent. If the charging level is low, you need to connect the device to AC power adapter.
