In this week’s top stories: iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra public betas, iPhone 8 leaks, ARKit apps, the iPhone’s 10th anniversary, and much more.

This week we get started with the release of public betas for iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra, giving the public its first chance to try out the new releases ahead of an official launch later this year in the fall. We give you the rundown on how to install iOS 11 public beta on your eligible iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. And we also explore some of the new features in iOS 11 and what hints they give us about the iPhone 8.

To celebrate Apple’s 10th anniversary of iPhone this week, we compare the past 10 years of iPhones, including a purported iPhone 8 dummy unit. We also look back at how iOS has transformed over the years alongside the revolutionary device. The latest iPhone 8 leaks and supply chain reports arrive. And we roundup some of the best ARKit examples so far, including some impressive tape measure apps, a Falcon 9 landing, Minecraft, a ‘Van Gogh bedroom tour’, and more.

You might have also noticed a brand new look for 9to5Mac and our other sites this week as we officially rolled out our latest redesign across 9to5Mac, 9to5Google, 9to5Toys and Electrek.
