Apple has just released the iOS 11.2 Public Beta and it is now available for download. The public beta comes 3 days after Apple released iOS 11.2 developer beta for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. With this public beta release non-developers who don’t have access to paid Developer Account will be able to download and install the iOS 11.2 beta on their devices.
