Apple has released the public version of iOS 13, and now it is a perfect time to prepare our iPhone or iPad for this official release of iOS 13. Killing all the rumors and spoiler alerts, iOS 13 has packed in a bunch of all new features and enhancements. Therefore, it would indeed be great to put our hands on iOS.

How to Prepare your iPhone and iPad for iOS 13 and iPadOS

#1. Keep Compatibility In Mind As Well

In what could be hugely disappointing news for many iPhone and iPad users, iOS 13 won’t support many devices that were compatible with iOS 12. To find out whether or not your iPhone will be able to run the latest iOS version, make sure to check out our post.  

#2. Never Forget to Back Up Your Device Via iTunes or iCloud

Before venturing into the public profile, never forget to back up your device thoroughly. You might even lose your sensitive data and have to downgrade to the previous iOS version.

So, ensure that your entire data has been safeguarded so that if any unfortunate events gatecrash your party, you will have the safety measure to fall back on.

Moreover, get rid of all the clutters by wiping out the redundant files so that your device has enough space to accommodate the operating system. To kickstart the mission clean up, follow this complete hands-on guide.

While using iTunes to back up your iPhone or iPad data, you should click on Encrypted Backup. This will include your Health data also. Since Health data is device-specific, iCloud is not able to back up. In this situation, you can back up your Health data to iTunes.

#3. Carrier Updates

While iOS updates improve the performance of your device, carrier updates positively influence the network and cellular performance on your iPhone or iPad. Your carrier will send you fresh updates once you update your device to the latest iOS. You can check these updates here: Settings → General → About → Carrier.

A Piece of Advice: Install the iOS 13 or iPadOS On Your Secondary Device

While iOS 13 offers you a great chance to have a go at the latest features, it can turn out to be really annoying not just for your iPhone but also for your patience.

From what I’ve experienced, I would recommend you to avoid installing the operating system on your daily driver. If it’s possible, find a secondary device and use it for experimentation. It would ensure your main usage won’t be affected.
