Now that Apple has released the public version of iOS 13, users of iPhones and iPads would like to update their devices. I have been using the beta version of iOS 13, and now will be switching to the official release. Along with me, you can also move to the official version. Today, I am going to show you can remove iOS 13 beta and install the official release.
Before you go ahead, you need to check the compatibility of your devices. Note that if your current iPhone or iPad is not compatible with the latest Apple operating system, you cannot use its features. Without much ado, you can go ahead and exit the iOS 13 beta program first.
How to Update iPhone from iOS 13 Beta to Public Release
Before you update your device to the official version of iOS 13, you need to take a full backup of your data. During your migration from beta to the public, you may lose your precious data. To avoid this situation, you should back up your iPhone. Once you take back-up of your device, follow the steps given below. We have mentioned two methods: using iPhone/iPad and via iTunes on your Mac.
Step #1. Open Settings app on your device.
Step #2. Now tap on General.
Step #3. Next, tap on Profiles → Tap on iOS 13 & iPadOS 13 Beta Software Profile.
This option is seen only in those devices, which run iOS 13 beta. If you are using the official iOS 12, you won’t find Profiles on your device.
Step #4. Tap on Remove Profile (seen last in red fonts).
Step #5. Apple may ask you to enter your screen lock passcode; enter the passcode.
Step #6. A pop-up will swipe up from the bottom; this prompts you to tap on the Remove button. Finally, tap on the Remove button to get rid of iOS 13 beta profile from your device.
This is not yet done; you need to shut down your iPhone. To restart your iPhone, just hold down the power button for a few seconds until you see an Apple logo on the screen.
Once you have removed the beta profile of iOS 13 from your device, you can download and install the public version via an over-the-air update.
How to Update your iPhone/iPad to the Official Release of iOS 13 via iTunes on Mac/PC
Some users like to use iTunes to update their iOS devices to the latest official release of iOS. Here is the detailed method.
Step #1. First off, shut down your iPhone or iPad.
Step #2. Next, connect your device to your Mac or computer via lightning cable.
Step #3. Keep your device connected to the computer and press and hold sleep/wake and home buttons simultaneously. If you are using iPhone 7 or later, you need to hold down side and volume down buttons.
Note that you are not supposed to release the buttons even if you see an Apple logo; you have to hold the buttons until your device shows the Recovery mode symbol.
Step #4. On your computer, click on Update.
Step #5. Your computer will prompt you again to click the Update button to download and install the public profile of iOS 13.
Step #6. Finally, click on the Agree button to agree to the Terms and Conditions.
Put your iPhone 8 or later in Recovery Mode
If you own an iPhone 8 or later devices, you need to follow a bit different method.
Step #1. Close iTunes (if it is open on your Mac or computer).
Step #2. Now connect your device to the computer through lightning cable.
Step #3. Launch iTunes.
Step #4. Press and release the volume up and then press and release the volume down button; next press and hold the side button until recovery mode screen does not appear on your device.
You have done it! Your iOS device will download and install iOS 13 or iPadOS 13.
In case your device gives you two options of ‘Update’ and ‘Restore,’ you should choose the first one, i.e., Update. If you select Restore, it will delete all your device data. If you have already taken back-up of your device, you should not worry.
Is your device already running iOS 13.1?
Some users have updated their iPhones and iPads to iOS 13.1 beta; for them, using iOS 13 will be a downgrading experience. In other words, they have to downgrade their devices to iOS 13 official release from iOS 13.1 beta version. You can follow a simple method to downgrade from iOS 13 beta.
