The release of iOS 13 is only just around the corner now and it’s on track to be a very promising update for iPhone users. Some of the new features and changes include speed and performance improvements, the long anticipated dark mode, Siri enhancements and updates to many of the built-in apps. It’s easy to see why so many people are eager to jump in now and experience the update for themselves.
The official release of iOS 13 will be on Sept. 10, along with announcements of the new iPhones, so if you’re not desperate to install it now you might want to simply wait until then. Any iPhone from the iPhone 6s onward can run iOS 13, including the iPhone SE. Ideally it would be best to install the update on a spare device if you have one laying around, especially if you need your phone to remain perfectly operational and unaffected by possible bugs.
First and foremost, it’s a good idea to make an archived backup of your device in iTunes so you can use it to restore your device if anything goes wrong while you’re using the public beta. Once you’ve backed up your device follow the steps below to install the iOS 13 public beta:
Step 1: On your iPhone, go to Apple’s Beta Program page. Log in with your Apple ID and agree to abide by the terms and conditions.
Step 2: Under the Getting Started section, tap the link to enroll your iOS device in the iOS 13 beta.
Step 3: Once the profile installation webpage shows up, tap the Download profile button.
Step 4: Tap Allow when your phone asks if you’d like to allow the beta profile to be installed.
Step 5: Now you need to enable the profile you just downloaded. Go to Settings, and there will be an alert at the top of the screen that a profile is ready to be installed. Tap Profile Downloaded.
Step 6: On the following screen, tap Install near the profile you just downloaded and then follow the prompts to restart your phone.
Once your device restarts, the beta will automatically begin downloading. You can check the download progress in General in Settings, just like how you’d check the progress of a normal iOS update.
If at any point you want to remove the public beta from your device, simply return to the profile page in Settings and tap the Remove Profile button. You will then receive a new software update that will roll your device back to the most recent iOS 12 update.
