The iOS 11.4 update is currently brewing under the beta channel for all supported iPhone models including the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Only recently the update reached beta stage level 3, and by the looks of things, it seems to be right on track for a public release anytime soon.
Apple will be holding the WWDC 2018 event on June 4th in Canada. The company will probably release the developer preview of iOS 12 at the event alongside the launch of new MacBooks. So, we’re only about a month away from the reveal of the most significant iOS update. But before that, you may get the iOS 11.4 very soon on supported iPhone models.
The iPhone 6 didn’t take the iOS 11.3 update very well. Ever since it released, iPhone 6 users have been complaining about the slow performance on their phones and slightly poor battery life. But thanks to the recently released iOS 11.3.1 update, the device’s performance seems to have restored to normal for many users.
So whether the public release of iPhone 6 iOS 11.4 update will slow down its performance or keep things healthy remains to be seen. But as far as we can tell from the public beta releases of iOS 11.4, it’s going to be an excellent release.
If you’re okay running public beta builds on your iPhone 6, you can get the iOS 11.4 beta installed on your phone right now. All you’ve to do is enroll your device into the beta program, and you’ll get the iOS 11.4 beta 3 OTA update instantly on your iPhone 6.
