How to Download iOS 16 Beta

How to download iOS 16 Beta. Apple has released the iOS 16 developer beta and now you can install it on your iPhone. We're already using the beta on a few iPhones at the office and it's mostly stable with a few minor bugs and the usual slight drop in battery life. If you want, give it a try and see all the new iOS 16 features on your device. Of course, this is an early beta and won't be extremely stable software, so it makes sense to install this on a secondary device rather than your main device.

How to Download iOS 16 Beta?

With that in mind, the process of downloading and installing iOS 16 is actually pretty simple. Here's a quick breakdown:

How to install iOS 16 developer beta:

  • Start by taking a full iTunes backup of your data. Fortunately, you no longer need iTunes for this: connect your iPhone to your Mac via a cable and back up with Finder, or alternatively you can back up your iPhone to iCloud. This is important because you are about to install a beta software that is not quite final, so you may encounter bugs.
  • The iOS 16 developer beta is available on Apple's Developers Website. You must have a developer account to access it. Note that an Apple developer membership costs $99 per year and is required to be able to install the beta.

           *If you're not enrolled in the Apple Developer program, the good news is that the public iOS 16 beta is coming in July, so the wait shouldn't be long.

  • After logging in, you need to register your iPhone by downloading the iOS 16 beta profile. Tap Downloads with the button in the top right or use the dropdown on the left to find it.
  • Find the iOS 16 profile and make sure you have the download enabled.
  • Finally, go to Settings > General > Software update and then you should see the iOS 16 beta appear. Press the "Download and Install" button and the beta installation process will begin. After waiting a short while until it is installed, you will need to restart your device. Once rebooted, the device will run the iOS 16 beta and you're done!
