Apple has rolled iOS 11 public beta to allow iPad and iPhone users to try their new iOS, which came with some good features like Screen Recording, P2P money transfer, customized control center and more. As it’s not officially released out for general users you can update your iOS by using their beta program. I would recommend you to install iOS beta on your secondary device as it might have some bugs. Follow this step by step guide to install iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad.
First of all, check whether your apple device is compatible with new iOS or not. Check out the below list.

You are about to install a beta program, there is always a chance that something will go wrong. So it’s better to keep a backup. You can take backup by connecting your device to iTunes. Once you took the backup, archive it. You can do it by going to iTunes -> Preferences -> Devices
