Here’s how to download the iOS 13 developer beta, but be careful: it’s onerous to install it. Similarly, the developer beta version (and even the iOS 13 public beta after it) is not guaranteed to be fully stable.
Some apps may not work with the iOS 13 beta until the final release (we’ve already experimented with it in previous beta versions of iOS). If you want to minimize risk and/or irritation, you can wait for the iOS 13 public beta to reach all iPhone users in July.
Before you get iOS 13 beta, back up your iPhone
If you want to try the iOS 13 developer beta but aren’t enrolled in the Apple developer program, go to the Apple Developer Program subscription page and follow the instructions.
You’ll need to provide your Apple ID along with your basic personal information. Remember that registration costs 100 dollars (about 69 pounds, 140 aus dollars) to register as a new developer. But you’ll also have early access to macOS and other beta software.
Do you have your own developer account? Great. First, go to the Apple Developer page here. Click the “Operating Systems” tab at the top. Now, you guessed it, scroll down to the section marked ‘iOS 13 beta.’
Then choose to install using the beta version of macOS 10.15 (which is another beta developer at this point) or through the xcode 11 beta, and you will actually install it via iTunes.
Now you can choose from a list of phones to choose which iPhone you’re uploading iOS 13 beta. Note that there is a new minimum threshold: anything older than the iPhone SE, iPhone 6S or iPod Touch (7th generation) will not be able to be upgraded to this version of iOS.
That’s all. Enjoy the iOS 13 beta and keep checking if a new version is ready to download.
