1. To get an iOS developer account, you must visit the Apple website and purchase a developer account. The cost is $99 a year for an Apple developer's account.

2. You will also need to register your developer device in the iOS Development Center to authenticate the device.

3. Before downloading the iOS 11 Beta 1, back up your files on iTunes. This is a precaution in case the device crashes during beta installation. The backup will allow you to preserve your data.

4. Once you satisfied all of the above requirements and procedures, you’re ready to start downloading and installing iOS 11 beta 1.

WARNING:  Keep in mind that when preparing to test a beta version of the iOS 11 software, you will want to use an alternate device - not your main or personal device. Bugs in the beta can cause crashes or even "bricking" of the device.
