iOS 13 public beta 1 has been released today. This public beta has the same features and build number as the iOS 13 developer beta 2 and is installed as a profile. Here’s how you install iOS 13 public beta 1 to your iPhone.
iOS 13 public beta 1 does not require a $99 yearly developer membership and a computer, as it’s not an IPSW file and available to download easily from your iOS device. To do this, all you need is your iPhone, Lightning cable and power adapter (optional), a smooth WiFi connection, your Apple ID and 5-30 minutes of your extra time.
Start off by going on your iPhone, and to the Apple Beta Program website here. Ensure that your iPhone is at least 50% or higher in battery life. If your iPhone is lower than that, plug it into a power source!
Next, on the Apple Beta Program website click on Sign Up if you never used iOS public betas before. If not, click on Sign In. Enter your Apple ID login credentials, then tap on iOS on the Apple Public Betas Guide webpage. You will be given information, tips and instructions to install the iOS 13 beta.
Now, here comes the fun part. You’re going to install the mightiest and awesome iOS 13 beta profile into your iPhone! While on the iOS 13 public beta information webpage, scroll down to the “Get Started” section. Click on “Enroll your iOS device” for the iOS 13 public beta profile and installation directions. Back up your iPhone to iCloud or iTunes, then archive the backup if it’s done via iTunes or Finder! Go back to the website and scroll down to step #2 and press the “Download Profile” button. If you’re unable to install the profile via the button, then enter in the following link in Safari: beta.apple.com/profile.
Head to Settings on your iPhone and tap on General, then Software Update. The update should pop up on your iPhone once it’s on WiFi. Tap on “Download and Install”, enter on your iPhone passcode, accept the iOS beta terms and conditions and wind down and relax for several minutes. After 5-30 minutes, your iPhone will be on iOS 13 public beta 1!
That wasn’t hard to install the iOS 13 public beta, right? Now you can enjoy the latest features, from Dark Mode, Memoji Stickers and latest features on your iPhone, ahead of its official release!
