  • Apple has seeded iOS 17.5 beta 3 to iPhone users enrolled in its developer program.
  • Previous iOS 17.5 betas introduced a new Quartiles game, support for downloading apps from the web in the EU, and more.
  • Users with compatible iPhones can expect the stable iOS 17.5 build to become available sometime next month.

iOS 17.5 beta 3 is now available to iPhone users through the developer beta channel. Those enrolled in Apple’s developer program can proceed to download and install the pre-release update. Otherwise, iPhone users running the stable OS can expect the final iOS 17.5 build to launch in mid-May — right before the iOS 18 preview in June.

What’s new in iOS 17.5 beta

iOS X.5 releases tend to be relatively minor, as they launch towards the end of the operating system’s cycle. Despite that, iOS 17.5 still packs some welcome and notable additions that improve the overall experience. With iOS 17.5 betas 1 and 2, Apple News Plus subscribers in eligible regions got a new Quartiles puzzle game.
