Ok, so you got excited about all the goodies the new iOS 13 has up its sleeve, but how can you install it on your device today, effectively skipping the line?
The new iOS 13 comes with an abundance of features such as dark mode, which allows users to make the screen easier on the eyes by switching all lights off. Then, a powerful camera upgrade, allowing instant changes in intensity of lighting in portrait mode, couple with a more curated view of the moments (aka pictures) on your phone. Most importantly the new iOS 13 offers single sign on options, by using your Apple ID.
The list doesn’t end there and there are a lot of reasons why anyone would choose to bypass the waiting line and go straight to the beta preview of the new iOS. So if you are an iPhone SE, iPhone 6S (and newer) and iPod touch (7th-generation) user, you will have access to the new iOS as an over-the-air update.
Installing the new iOS can be a relatively easy task, as long as you’re willing to take a few necessary steps to ensure that you have access to a recent backup of your device. You can do so via iTunes or iCloud, depending on whether you’re wired or wireless, respectively.
For starters, you will need to register at Apple Beta Software Program. Once done, you should access beta.apple.com/profile from your iOS device. Open Settings, tap the profile and follow the onscreen instructions to allow installation. The last step requires you to tap Settings > General > Software Update to install any available beta software.
That’s it! You should be able to enjoy the new features of iOS 13, while also providing valuable feedback regarding the features that come with the latest software update.
For everyone else reluctant to try out the beta version, the new stable iOS 13 will be publicly available probably some time around September, traditionally when new iPhone devices become available as well.
