Now that the suspense is uncovered about the features of iOS 13 and iPadOS, Google search is flooded with users looking to download and install the latest version of iOS on their supported device. Thankfully, with the release of iOS 13 beta 8 and iPadOS 13 beta 8, Apple has enabled OTA updates. You just need a developer profile installed on your device to get it done.
In this post, we will guide you step-by-step along with a download link to the beta profile. So let’s get started.
- None of the devices we tried had suffered any data loss, but we encourage you to have a complete backup before proceeding.
- If in case you end up with the mess, you can always revert back to iOS 12 using iTunes. But you’ll lose all your data.
- Most importantly, it is highly recommended to try iOS 13 or iPadOS 13 on the secondary device. So even if something goes wrong, your primary device is safe.
