Want to see what the next iOS update has to offer? To do this, you need to register for the public beta of it. Here we explain how to do this.
Do you like living on a razor's edge, or want to see if the next version of iOS fixes some of the bugs you're suffering from right now? Why not take a ride with the current public beta of iOS? It's actually quite simple to do and you can go back at any time.
The first thing you need is a local backup, on your Mac or PC (not an iCloud backup). Apple has step-by-step instructions on how to do this on Mac, and on PC. Next, head over to the Apple Beta program home page, using Safari on the iPhone you want to beta. Then you will have to register. Betas are available here for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS.
From here you can register the device and download a profile to your iPhone. Once it's registered (it only takes a few seconds), go to settings, touch the profile and follow the onscreen instructions to install it. Once it's done, go to Settings> General> Software Update to download the beta. Please be patient, this is a full download and will therefore take some time.
Please note, installing a public beta does not affect your warranty. To exit the beta, you will need to unregister your device and then perform a software update to download the latest version of iOS. And for those who are having trouble with the latest iOS 14.2 update, here's how to do it as well.
