Step 2) To free storage space for the new OS.

iOS 11 Offload Settings iPhone Storage
Check from Settings > General > iPhone Storage, to ensure you have enough storage for iOS 17 & iPadOS 17.

Make sure your iPhone or iPad has enough room for the new iOS 17 / iPadOS 17 to install. Although since iOS 11, Apple has a way to install new iOS with limited space, but do spare whenever possible at minimum 6-7 GB to speed up the whole installation process. To backup without a computer and to overcome iCloud storage limit, you may want to consider this option mentioned here: Clean and clear up iPhone storage space at JILAXZONE.

Step 3) To backup your device.

Back up your iOS device and back up your photos, videos. Before backing-up your iOS device, it’s always good to delete any unused or rarely used app. If you think you may need the app data/game save in the future, use offloading method to preserve their app data/game save. Check “Offload – free iPhone storage without losing saved data at JILAXZONE” to see how you can do it. If you found out that your iCloud doesn’t have enough space to backup your whole photos and videos collection, do check this as the alternative: Apple One vs Google One at JILAXZONE.

Step 4) To Register yourself as Apple Public Beta Tester for iOS 17 and iPadOS 17.

This is to enable you to install the new iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 right before Apple release it to the public (typically in September / October). The link shared below is a registration process that will enroll you as a public beta tester (don’t worry, it’s official from Apple and cost nothing) that enable your iPhone or iPad to install the public beta version of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17. However, depends on when you click the registration link, if you register just right after WWDC 2023 event, you may still see all the writing is for iOS 16 and iPadOS 16, instead of iOS 17 and iPadOS 17, but that’s ok, you are opening the correct URL anyway. Typically after a week or two after WWDC event, Apple will then officially release iOS 17 and iPadOS 17 Public beta for the masses to try. Register early to avoid the crowds!
