Apple has released the third beta of the upcoming iOS 11.4 update to developers, over a month after the release of iOS 11.3 with several new features. The third beta update comes just two weeks after the release of the second beta. All registered developers can download the new iOS 11.4 beta from Apple’s Developer Center or over-the-air after installing the proper configuration profile.

The new iOS 11.4 beta update brings a new ClassKit framework for educational institutions, the features that were first introduced at company’s March 27 educational event, where it launched a cheaper 9.7-inch iPad with Apple Pencil support. The update also adds features that were originally present in the early iOS 11.3 beta but were dropped ahead of the final release.

The update includes support for messages on iCloud that will now allow iOS users to store their iMessages on Apple cloud instead of storing them on the device. It also brings improved syncing capabilities and most importantly, it allows users to download all of their iMessages on new devices with iCloud sync feature. A message deleted on one device will remove it on all devices. The feature will also allow users to save some storage from their device since it migrates all messages and attachments to the cloud.

The update also brings AirPlay 2 features with the Apple TV once again available in the Home app, notes MacRumors. With AirPlay 2, the same audio content can be played in multiple rooms on devices that support AirPlay 2 such as the new HomePod smart speaker.

Those installing the iOS 11.4 beta 4 on the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus will get a new (PRODUCT) RED wallpaper but it is now available on iPhone X. There is also a new public beta of iOS 11.4 available via the public beta channel.

To recall, Apple had released iOS 11.3 with new features like Battery Health for monitoring the status of your iPhone’s battery last month. The feature also enabled Business Chat for iMessage and ARKit 1.5 with improvements to augmented reality. The iOS 11.3 also brought new Animoji to iPhone X and health records from participating medical providers.
