Apple announced iOS 13 on June 3rd, and released the developer beta that same day. We usually have to wait a few weeks for the public beta to be released, and today is that very day, the same as last year when the public iOS 12 beta landed on June 25th.
You can now download the iOS 13 public beta for your compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, starting the process by heading over to beta.apple.com. The first thing that you will need to do is enroll your devices in Apple’s beta program.
You will then want to backup your iOS device via iTunes just in case you want to downgrade back to iOS 12 and retain your data. If you are on macOS Catalina already, select your device from Locations in the Finder sidebar. Create a backup then click Manage Backups to Archive your backup.
Keep in mind that you should only install the public beta if you are comfortable with experiencing bugs in normal usage of your phone.
How to get the iOS 13 public beta:
Do a full iTunes backup of your data since you’re about to install beta software.
Open Appl’s public beta page on the device on which you’re about to install the iOS 13 beta.
Enroll your device by downloading the beta profile, which can be found here.
Head to Settings > General > Software update and then you should see the iOS 13 beta available for download. Press the “Download and Install” button.
After the beta has been downloaded, your device will reboot. Once it boots up again, it will be running the beta software.
How to downgrade from iOS 13 public beta:
Remember that backup we made you do? Well, it’s the cornerstone of downgrading from iOS 13.
Connect your device to a computer and launch iTunes.
Put your phone into recovery mode:
On an iPhone XS/Max/XR/X, iPhone 8, or iPhone 8 Plus: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Then, press and hold the Side button until you see the recovery-mode screen.
On an iPhone 6s and earlier, iPad, or iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time. Don’t release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Keep holding both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen.
iTunes will prompt you to restore your device and therefore reset it back to its factory defaults.
Once your device has been restored, sign up with your Apple ID and restore the full iTunes backup you hopefully have lying around.
