Apple has released the first public beta version of iOS and iPadOS 15 and we are going to show how to install it. Even though it is still in beta and contains bugs, Apple wanted to deliver it beyond developers. If you are looking forward to trying iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, keep reading.
How to install the public beta of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15?
Before starting the process we always recommend users create a backup of important files. If something goes wrong you can save all of your private data this way. And you better use Finder because the backups that the system automatically makes in iCloud replace the old ones, and the backups made in iOS 15 are not compatible with iOS 14. Now you can follow these steps:
- We open the Apple public beta website on our iPhone or iPad.
- If we are already registered we tap Sign in to log in.
- If we have not already done so tap Sign up to register.
- Let’s fill in our username and password and access the website.
- Go to the iOS or iPadOS section.
- Scroll down slightly. Next, go to the Get started heading tap.
- Click on Download profile and Allow download.
- When we are informed that the profile has been downloaded, click OK.
- Open the Settings app.
- At the top, next to our name, tap on Downloaded profile.
- Tap Install and enter your iPhone passcode.
- Tap Install to accept the conditions.
- Tap Install again to confirm.
- We touch Done or, if prompted to Restart.
- We enter Settings > General.
- We enter Software Update.
- When the public beta appears we tap Download and Install and enter the device code.
It’s that easy. Once we have started the installation process our iPhone or iPad will download all the necessary software and install it on the device. If not, we can go to Settings > Software Update to install the version manually. Remember that it is always a good idea to keep the phone plugged in during the process.
Apple’s public beta program attracts the attention of many users, so in these first hours, the download speed may be a little bit slow. Once our iPhone or iPad is on iOS or iPadOS 15 the following updates will occur via OTA, ie in Settings > General > Software Update.
