Apple rolled the first beta version of iOS yesterday at the WDC Keynote event for the 64-bit iOS devices. This release is just aimed at giving developers the chance to start updating their app for the next version of the OS when it officially drops this September.
However, as this is the first beta, so comes with a range of bugs and stability issues. If you are intending to update your iPhone/iPad to iOS 11, here are some bugs you should note to help you decide if this developer beta version will be worth using.
Bugs Found on iOS 11
- Auto brightness does not work on the iPhone.
- Launching third-party apps needs longer time than usual.
- The ‘Clear All’ button disappears in the notification center when swiping down from the home screen.
- Sharing functionality in the Messages app currently gets crashed.

iOS 11 brings a great change but the first iOS 11 developer beta still exists a lot of issues relating to performance. iPhone 7 and iPad Pro users even say that they feel the operations on their device are very slow. Apple will fix the majority of the bugs in the next updates before the public iOS version rolled out in September.
