How to Install iOS 12.1.2 Beta 1 on your iPhone or iPad

If you have a dev account, downloading and installing iOS 12.1.2 beta 1 on your iPhone and iPad will be quite straightforward. Head over to this complete guide to installing the pre-released iOS version so that you can continue to be in the beta testing mode!

Even though the official version of the iOS 12 is out, the beta testing will continue for the addition of new features and refinements. And if you are like me who always want to be the first to try out the upcoming features, you would like to install iOS 12.1.2 beta 1 on your iPhone and iPad the moment it’s rolled out.

As it’s always the case, if you have the registered developer account, downloading the beta will be quite straightforward. However, if you are not a developer but still wish to try out the dev beta on your secondary device to take a peek at the yet-to-be-released iOS version, you will have to take a slightly different route. Assuming you are an aspiring pro, let me walk you through the steps!

Before going ahead, ensure that you have fully backed up your iOS device. As iOS 12.1.2 beta 1 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.

Note: 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.

If you had turned on the automatic software update, then your device will already be on the latest beta.  Just in case, you are yet to have a go at the dev beta, follow the below steps.

How to register your account for the iOS 12.1.2 Beta 1

First things first, be sure you have a developer account with Apple as you won’t be able to get through if you don’t have the paid account. Currently, Apple charges $99 for Developer Program annually and $299 for Developer Enterprise Program annually.
