Update, August 16, 2018: Apple had released iOS 12 beta 7 a few days back. But the tech giant had to pull back the beta due to performance issues. Though Apple calls it beta 8, you can consider it just the refined version of beta 7.
Before going ahead, ensure that you have fully backed up your iOS device. As iOS 12 is still in beta, you need to be fully prepared to encounter common hazards like unexpected battery draining and the crashing of apps. Therefore, I would suggest you install the beta on your secondary device so that your daily driver doesn’t get plagued by the bugs.
Update: If you had downloaded the previous iOS 12 beta on your device, you will be able to update it with ease. Simply open Settings → General → Software Update and then install the beta as usual.
