How To Install iOS 11.2.5 Beta 1 On Any Compatible iPhone And iPad

iOS 11.2.5 Developer beta.

iOS 11.2.5 Developer beta.

After rolling out iOS 11.2.1 with a fix for the HomeKit remote sharing issue, Apple has also started seeding another Beta testing stage. It’s not iOS 11.3 as you might have thought, but a smaller upcoming upgrade labeled iOS 11.2.5. We can only assume that the Cupertino-based tech giant has jumped to this version, in order to keep the iOS 11.2.2, iOS 11.2.3 and iOS 11.2.4 denominations reserved if any other unexpected bug surfaces, that requires a software updated before iOS 11.2.5 is ready to be released. This makes sense, considering the amount of glitches that have required fixes since the launch of iOS 11.

iOS 11.2.5 Beta 1 is currently only available to registered Apple Developers. Nevertheless, there is a trick that you can apply and install this test version on any compatible iPhone and iPad even if you don’t own a Developer account. All that you have to do is follow the info available below.
