Apple at the WWDC 2018 event few hours back introduced the iOS 12- next major software upgrade to iPhones, iPads. While the official stable roll out starts from September and public beta starts later this month, the company has made the first beta update available to developers to collect feedback and improve the OS for stability. However, there is a way to install the iOS 12 beta update without having a developers account.
Before you start, do note that this process is something that isn’t sanctioned by Apple, so things can change at any moment if Apple decides to pull the plugs. Since this is a beta update, there might be bugs and can be unstable to use as daily driver. Then again, you can downgrade back to stable iOS 11.4, but you will lose your data and settings, so performing a backup using iTunes or iCloud is a good idea. So, let’s get started.
How to install iOS 12 Beta without developer account
- Firstly, make sure you are using an iOS 12 compatible Apple device; iPhone 5s and later, all iPad Air and iPad Pro models, iPad 5th generation, iPad mini 2 and later and iPod touch 6th generation support iOS 12
- Next, you will have to install an iOS beta developers profile, for that head over to the link here, and tap on iOS 12 download button.
- It will then redirect you to install an iOS beta software profile; click on Install
- Tap on Install, and it will ask you to enter the lock screen passcode to verify, and once you have entered, it will ask you for your consent, click on ‘Install.’
- At this point, you need to restart your iOS device, and once you restart it, head over to settings>general>software update and check for updates
- You will now see iOS 12 update and the size of it depends on the model you are using. We are using an iPhone 7 Plus, and the update size is 1.43GB.
- Once the update is downloaded, tap install, and the phone will do its job and will restart to iOS 12. You can check out the features of the iOS 12 here.
This update is strictly for those who are desperate to try out the iOS 12 right away, but we suggest you wait till the public beta rolls out which would be more stable compared to the developers beta.
Warning disclaimer: Please back up your important data before installing the beta update. Beta ROM will have bugs so; it might be unstable. FoneArena is not responsible for any damage caused to your device.
