Beta 3 of iOS 11.2.5 and macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 beta

Apple has released beta 3 of iOS 11.2.5, macOS High Sierra 10.13.3, tvOS 11.2.5, and watchOS 4.2.2 for users participating in the beta testing programs.


The new beta versions of system software are available now for developers, with public beta releases typically followed soon after.

No major new features are expected in iOS 11.2.5, macOS High Sierra 10.13.3, tvOS 11.2.5, or watchOS 4.2.2, suggesting the minor software updates will instead focus on bug fixes, security enhancements, and other smaller improvements to the Apple operating system lineup. Because the software is currently in active beta development, this may change by the time the final versions are released to the general public.

Users enrolled in the beta testing programs can find the software updates available now.

iOS 11.2.5 beta 3 is available as an update now from the Settings app Software Update mechanism.

macOS 10.13.3 beta 3 can be downloaded via the Mac App Store Updates tab.

The betas of watchOS and tvOS updates available through their respective Settings apps as well.

The numerical versioning schemes for iOS 11.2.5 and tvOS 11.2.5 are a bit curious, with a notable gap between existing final stable builds (11.2.1) and the current beta releases (11.2.5). This may suggest some interim software updates could be unveiled in the coming weeks.

The most recent final stable builds of system software include iOS 11.2.1 for iPhone and iPad, macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 for Mac, tvOS 11.2.1 for Apple TV, and watchOS 4.2 for Apple Watch.
