After Apple revealed the details of iOS 12 in WWDC 2018, and as usual, after releasing the first beta for users enrolled in the Apple Developer Program, it is likely that many are anxious by having in their hands the latest version of the mobile operating system. But those who are not registered in the Apple Developer Program, will have to wait a little longer, until July, when the first public beta is released.
If you simply can not wait to have your iPhone, iPad or iPod with the new iOS 12 beta, in this tutorial we will share the method to install iOS 12 beta without having to register to obtain a developer account. And yes, you do not have to have your UDID registered.
This method involves the installation of a verified Apple configuration profile that triggers an OTA update to the firmware beta. As is known, before any modification or beta installation, it is recommended that you make a backup of your device in iCloud or iTunes before starting. Make sure you backup your data in case something goes wrong or if you decide to restore later. In addition, it is a priority to check if your device is compatible with Apple’s iOS 12 beta.
Step 1: Open Safari on your iPhone, copy and open this link.
Step 2: Download the profile for the device by clicking on the top right button in “Direct download”.
Step 3: In the following screen will open the profile to install, now we give to Install. Once the profile is installed, the device will be restarted.
Step 4: Once the device has been rebooted, you go to Settings> General> Software Update and you will find the OTA update for iOS 12 as a Beta Developer.
Step 5: Start downloading and installing iOS 12 beta on your device, now you prepare a coffee, sit down and wait for it to end.
Once your iPhone has been updated, it must be restarted to show the first beta of iOS 12.
Even if you’re targeting app developers, you can also sign up at the Apple Developer Center to test a beta before anyone else, by the way, report any glitches in your testing phase.
Step 1. Make a backup, which is highly recommended especially for beta versions. From Apple remind us that we have two options: with iCloud or iTunes.
Step 2. Go to the Apple Developer Center.
Step 3. Click on Apple Developer Program and then “Enroll”. To subscribe you will need your Apple ID.
Step 4. Once inside, go to the version you want to install and download.
Step 5. The iOS 12 software profile will appear on your iPhone or iPad.
Step 6. Accept the terms and conditions.
Step 7. Mark “Install” in the upper right corner.
Step 8. Once the download process is complete, click on the Restart button to apply the changes and start the installation.
From this moment, every time a public beta is launched by Apple, it will be reflected in a balloon, exactly like the standard ones, so you will not have to do anything else again.
