Apple’s annual software bash, WWDC 2021, is underway, and the keynote has highlighted the biggest new changes in Apple’s software for 2021. Usually big events at Apple, and those we really digest the full range of Apple devices, but it was in iOS 15 that one of the biggest impacts occurred.
A weighty update to iOS, iOS 15-to prevent the FaceTime improvements, a new Focus mode, upgraded to the notifications, but also a deeper embedding of artificial intelligence to enable Apple’s iPhone or iPad.
It will be some time before we see that iOS 15 has an official release, but what it would take to announce is that Apple needs to make a number of changes before the final release. But, that doesn’t mean you can get your hands on it today, regardless of whether you’re a qualified part of an Apple developer account and have a little patience. Here’s how to download the iOS 15 beta version.
Unfortunately, this is only for developers, right now
Please continue, we have some bad news, now, the iOS 15 beta is a developer beta. This means that they are mainly intended to help him with the goal of getting his app to work during the iOS release, and not for mass oyatmışdı. In addition to that, you’ll need an Apple developer account to sign in for it, and the price-was was a strong $ 99.
There is a lot to pay money for in order to get the beta version, in particular, there is a free beta version that will most likely be announced soon. If you don’t have an Apple Developer account, we don’t recommend that you do it just to access the beta version.
But while you’re waiting, check out the guide on how to sign up for the iOS beta, and be sure that you’ll need to sign up in order to get your next iOS beta. But once again, please note that you are likely to encounter errors that were made during the beta testing of the software, so you do not need to install it if you are afraid of losing your data.
The good news is that you don’t need a particularly new iPhone to access the iOS 15 beta. True to form, Apple has included a bunch of devices in the beta program, with the iPhone 6s continuing to impress with its longevity.
You can access the iOS 15 beta on the following devices:
- iPod Touch (7th generation)
- iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and iPhone SE (1st generation)
- iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone X
- iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max
- iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max
- iPhone SE (2020)
- iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max
Note: The beta version of stripes may have some bugs. That’s why we didn’t release the beta version of the main block either. I’m here very often during beta testing, and it’s quite possible that you’ll end up losing your valuable data or, in the worst-case scenario, bricking your phone and moving it to the side. So, we recommend using spare parts or a spare device to make all beta versions, and this is a risk, it is a daily driver.
Back up before you begin
So, you’ve got your $99 Developer subscription and eligible iPhone ready — but before you start on the iOS 15 road, make sure to back your device up first. That way, if data is lost, you can quickly and easily restore it with your backup. We have a guide on how to back up an iPhone, but we’ve also put these instructions down below.
Backing up using iCloud
iCloud is probably the easiest way to back up your iPhone because you don’t need to attach any cables. All you need is an internet connection.
Step one: Connect to a Wi-Fi network.
Step two: Head to your Settings app, then select your name.
Step three: Tap iCloud. If you’re on iOS 10.2 or earlier, you’ll have to scroll down and tap iCloud.
Step four: Scroll down and select iCloud Backup > Back Up Now. If you’re on iOS 10.2 or earlier, just tap Backup and it’ll work its magic.
You can check the backup by heading to Settings, hitting iCloud > iCloud Storage > Manage Storage, and tapping on your device from the list.
Backing up on a Mac running macOS Catalina and newer
MacOS 10.15 Catalina did away with iTunes, but backing up on Mac is still easy.
Step one: Connect your iPhone or iPod Touch to your Mac.
Step two: Follow the on-screen instructions to enter your device passcode or Trust This Computer.
Step three: Open Finder, and use the sidebar to select your iPhone.
Step four: Hit General > Back Up Now to manually back up.
Backing up on a Mac or PC with iTunes
If you’re using an older Mac or a Windows PC, you’ll have to use iTunes to back up your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Step one: Make sure iTunes is up-to-date and connect your device.
Step two: Follow the on-screen instructions to Trust This Computer or enter your device passcode.
Step three: Select your iPhone or iPod Touch from the iTunes menu.
Step four: Hit Back Up Now to save your data.
Downloading and installing the iOS 15 developer beta
Done all of that? Thankfully, actually downloading and installing the beta is relatively easy. Gone are the days you needed to manually download a bunch of tools and flash the beta onto your phone. Instead, now all you have to do is access the Apple Developer area on your beta device and download the beta profile. Once it’s finished downloading, go to Settings > General > Profile, and activate the beta.
