Today's beta new changes include Music widget in Control Center displays the Music app icon, when no content is playing, as well as unlocking with Touch ID is a lot faster now. According to Apple's release notes there's a new known issue that causes user upgrading iOS 11 beta 5 to beta 6 or later to see their updates stall indefinitely. The fix is to delete the update from Settings > General > iPhone storage and then re-install.

Aside from releasing iOS 11 beta 7, Apple today also seeded macOS 10.13 beta 7, which is also known as macOS High Sierra, a week after seeding beta 6. Developers who registered from Apple Developer Center can update the software by going to the Mac App Store.
