Want to know how to install iOS 15 before it’s publicly available? Check here
If you have an iPhone or iPad and can’t wait to try out iOS 15, Apple’s latest mobile operating system, you can install the public beta now. Announced at WWDC 2021, iOS 15 won’t be fully released to the public until the fall, but that doesn’t mean you can’t run it now.
Before you rush to install the beta version of iOS 15, just know that it’s pretty stable from my testing so far, you might not want to run it on your main device. Apps you trust are not working, from random reboots, to AirPods issues, everything can happen when it’s in beta stages, so make sure you agree with that before proceeding.
If you’re okay with a few (potential) iOS outages in the next few months, here’s how to install the iOS 15 beta on your device.
How to Install iOS 15 Beta
As always, the first step is to make sure that your device is compatible with iOS 15. This year, any device that can run iOS 14 is also compatible with iOS 15, which means something newer than the iPhone 6S. Then it’s time to back up your device to iCloud, in case you need to go back to iOS 14 in the future.
Back up your things:
- Open Settings > Tap your Apple ID at the top of the screen
- Once inside your account, go to iCloud > Scroll down to iCloud Backup and activate the option
- Then, tap Back up now
Now that you’ve backed up your valuable data, it’s time to get the beta.
