The tutorial is applicable to all iOS 16.x.x public beta and developer beta releases. A guide for iPadOS 16 beta profile is available at the bottom of this article. I’ve published this article for informational and educational purposes only.
Apple unveiled iOS 16 at WWDC 2022. This version of iOS looks very sleek in my opinion. For example, iOS 15 makes FaceTime calls more natural, introduces SharePlay for shared experiences, helps users focus and be in the moment with new ways to manage notifications, and brings more intelligence to photos and search to quickly access information.
However, iOS 16 beta previews are only available to the developer community for the time being. Meaning, you need to have a developer account to download and install iOS beta 16.x on your iOS devices.
Luckily, there are workarounds to install iOS 16 beta previews without a developer account. All you have to do is install an iOS 16 Beta Profile.
How To Install iOS 16.x Without Developer Account?
There are a lot of distracting blogs out there; I’ll be specific, and you can finish the whole iOS 16 beta installation process in a couple of minutes. The compatibility list is available at the bottom of the article.
- Open the following website on your iPhone.
Visit this URL from your iPhone or iPad and tap “allow.” Then visit the settings app to review and install the profile. Look for a mini-notification within the settings app or find the downloaded profile at the Settings -> General -> Profiles section. The device will prompt you to restart after installing the profile. Just do it.
- Go to General -> Software Update.
You’ll see iOS 16 developer beta as an over-the-air (OTA) firmware update.
- Download iOS 16 beta on your iPhone.
Now wait for your device to prepare the update. The download time and size may vary according to your WiFi connection and device model.
- Tap on “Install Now”.
Install when you’re ready. Happy testing!
