How to Install the Public Betas of iOS 16 and iPad 16

The first public betas of iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 are now available, and if you can't wait until the official release to try out those cool lockscreen customization features, you can do so now – at your own peril, of course. Once the beta software is available for your device, here's how to install it on your iPhone or iPad.

Before we begin, a word of caution: beta software is inherently incomplete and may contain flaws. Although Apple's public betas are normally fairly reliable, you should exercise caution before downloading them on any device on which you rely. They may not have all of the features that will be included in the final version. Depending on the applications you use, your experience may differ from that of others. Finally, if you do decide to install, we recommend backing up your device's data in case something goes wrong.

WHAT NEW FEATURES ARE INCLUDED IN IOS 16?

iOS 16 will include a plethora of new features, such as the ability to customize your lock screen with new fonts, colors, and widgets; the ability to link your lock screen to your Focus app; rolling notifications; major updates to Messages, such as the ability to edit a text after you've sent it; Live Text for videos, and a plethora of other features and updates.

The iOS 16 beta should be compatible with the following devices:

  • iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Mini, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max

HOW TO DOWNLOAD THE IOS 16 BETA

  • Login up for or sign in to Apple's beta software portal using your phone's Safari browser.
  • If you haven't already, enroll your iOS device. This entails accepting a comprehensive set of Terms and Conditions. Did we mention it was entirely at your own risk?
  • After enrolling, scroll down to a reminder to build a backup of your phone's content in case you need to restore to a prior state.
  • Scroll down until you see a button that reads Download profile, then press it. This will display a warning stating that the website is attempting to download a configuration profile. Allow should be selected. A pop-up window will appear stating that you may establish the new profile from the Settings app.
  • Launch the Settings app. Near the top, a new area named Profile Downloaded should be included. Select that, and you'll be able to download the beta program.
  • In the upper right corner, click Install. By tapping Install again, you'll have to re-enter your password and agree to the customary lengthy agreement statement.
  • To activate the profile, you may need to restart your phone.
  • Once that is completed, you may update your software as usual by navigating to Settings > General > Software Update. You should notice the iOS 16 update there; click Download and Install and then follow the on-screen instructions.

  • Scroll down until you see the Download profile button, then click it. This may result in a warning stating that the website is attempting to download a configuration profile. Allow should be selected. You'll see a pop-up window stating that you may create the new profile in the Settings app.
  • When you open the Settings app, a new area named Profile Downloaded should appear towards the top. Select that, and you should be able to download the beta program. It is possible that you may need to restart your iPad first.
