How to test iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, Chrome and other early beta versions
If the software makers have it become increasingly open to the idea of public beta: test races for new applications and operating systems that anyone can participate in. They test their code for free and we get to try out new features beforehand.
Getting started with these betas is easier than you think, and they are available on almost every platform, as we’ll explain below. It won’t cost you anything and you can exit the beta whenever you want.
Keep in mind, however, that betas are unfinished software, you take that step at your own risk. We do not recommend running beta code on devices that are very important to you, as errors, failures, and incompatibilities may appear.
It’s unlikely (but not impossible) that a beta will completely break your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop. Most betas are fairly stable and are nearing completion. But an app that you trust on a daily basis may stop working or some of your data may disappear.
iOS and iPadOS Betas
If you want to run your iPhone software in beta, you need to go to the address Apple Beta Software Program on the website. Continue Give your name link, enter your Apple ID credentials and open it iOS tab: You will see the beta version of the iOS version that is currently being tested.
Continue Register your iOS device link, and then note the instructions on the next page to back up your device. Once you’ve done that, you need to open it https://beta.apple.com/profile on your actual iPhone page, log in and download the submitted profile file.
Restart your phone, open the Settings app, and click General then Software update, where details of the latest beta update should appear. Choose to download and install the update, and when your phone restarts, it will run in beta rather than the standard iOS version.
It’s the same if you have an iPad, of course if you track it iPadOS and Register on your iPad the link, if applicable, instead of those related to iOS and iPhones. On both iPhones and iPads, you will continue to receive beta software updates until you leave the beta software program, which is as follows: General and Profiles From the Settings section, click the beta profile and select it Remove.
