iOS 13

But, there is a catch, this is only available for the developers. Moreover, the Public Beta will be available for mass testing only after July. This is done to avoid any kind of issues or harm done to your iPhone while testing the beta version as the Public Beta is more suitable for people who just want to try out. So, it is advised that if you do not know your way around an iPhone then, do not install this.

You can learn about all the new features of iOS 13 here.

Besides, speaking of issues, the beta versions of anything will be full of issues and bugs so, it is advised to make a complete backup of each and everything in your smartphone before you proceed with installing the beta iOS 13 on your device.

How To Download And Install iOS 13 on Your iPhone Right Now

The below methods and steps are taken from Gadgethacks website.

Mojave Method

For the Mojave method, using the following instructions. However, note that you can skip downloading Xcode itself, which is over 7 GB, and just install the mobiledevice.pkg from Xcode instead, which should also do the trick. It’s a resource package hidden within Xcode’s contents, and it’s all you need to install iOS 13 in Mojave. If you do that, open up the package and install it, then skip all Xcode-related steps below;

  1. Register your iPhone’s UDID with your dev account, if not done so already.
  2. Visit developer.apple.com/download and sign in to your Developer account. If you have two-factor authentication enabled on your account, following the verification instructions.
  3. Under the iOS 13 section, choose “View all.”
  4. Download the IPSW file for the appropriate model iPhone.
  5. Still, in the “Downloads” webpage, select the “Applications” tab and download “Xcode 11 beta.” Xcode is a huge file, so it will take some time to download.
  6. Unpack the Xcode XIP file, which may take some time. Afterward, you will have Xcode installed.
  7. Open up the Xcode 11 beta app and follow the on-screen instructions to install any additional tools needed.
  8. Make sure you have the newest iTunes version on your computer. On macOS, you can check via the “Update” tab in the Mac App Store. For Windows, use “Check for Updates” in the “Help” menu in iTunes; If that isn’t there, you can check for updates from the Microsoft Store. However, Xcode is not available for Windows so PC users are left out this time, so you can stop right here if that’s you.
  9. Connect your iPhone to the computer with your Lightning to USB cable or Lightning to USB-C cable.
  10. If you see an “Unlock iPhone to Use Accessories” notification appear on your iPhone, unlock your iPhone using Face ID, Touch ID, or your passcode to proceed.
  11. Tap “Trust This Computer” if prompted on your iPhone, and follow the on-screen steps to trust it. You can always untrust the computer later if need be later.
  12. Open iTunes if it’s not already opened.
  13. If not already logged in, sign in to your Apple account in iTunes.
  14. Select the iPhone in iTunes and make sure you’re in the “Summary” tab.
  15. Back up and archive it for safe-keeping, if not already done. Make sure to use the encrypted backup option if you want to carry on Health and Activity data.
  16. Hold down the Option key on Mac or Shift key on Windows, then click on “Update” or “Check for Update” in iTunes to initiate the process. (Note: Some users may have issues doing it this way, so try entering DFU mode on your iPhone instead, then hold the Option key and click on “Restore” when prompted in iTunes.)
  17. From the selection window in iTunes, choose the IPSW to restore an image that you downloaded to your computer. Then, select “Open” to begin the installation.
  18. Once iTunes finishes installing the image, your iPhone will restart.
  19. Now, all that’s left to do is follow the instructions on your iPhone to activate and set up iOS 13.

It’s important to note that all iOS devices you wish to install the iOS 13 dev beta you need to be registered by adding their UDIDs to the dev site. If you want to try to get around this process, or you don’t want to pay $99 for the developer’s license, you can try using Betaprofiles.com to download the iOS 13 profile when it goes live. We can’t guarantee this link will work, but it’s a service that Redditors have found useful.

Catalina Method

If you’ve updated to the macOS 10.15 Catalina beta already, which you may have if you couldn’t get the above Mojave method to work, the process is actually pretty easy. And since there’s no iTunes anymore, all of the work is done right inside the Finder app, since iOS devices mount similar to external hard drives.

  1. Register your iPhone’s UDID with your dev account, if not done so already.
  2. Visit developer.apple.com/download and sign in to your Developer account. If you have two-factor authentication enabled on your account, following the verification instructions.
  3. Under the iOS 13 section, choose “View all.”
  4. Download the IPSW file for the appropriate model iPhone.
  5. Connect your iPhone to the computer with your Lightning to USB cable or Lightning to USB-C cable.
  6. If you see an “Unlock iPhone to Use Accessories” notification appear on your iPhone, unlock your iPhone using Face ID, Touch ID, or your passcode to proceed.
  7. Tap “Trust This Computer” if prompted on your iPhone, and follow the on-screen steps to trust it. You can always untrust the computer later if need be later.
  8. Open Finder if it’s not already opened.
  9. Select the name of your iPhone in the sidebar under Locations.
  10. Back up and archive your last iOS 12 version for safe-keeping, if not already done. Doing so is just like in iTunes, where you manually back up in the Finder window, but instead of going in any preferences menu, click the “Manage Backups” button. Next, right-click your last backup and hit “Archive.” Make sure to use the encrypted backup option if you want to carry on Health and Activity data.
  11. Hold down the Option key then click on “Check for Update” in Finder to initiate the process.
  12. From the selection window in iTunes, choose the IPSW to restore the image that you downloaded to your computer, then click on “Open.”
  13. Click on “Update” when prompted to let your Mac contact Apple to verify and install iOS 13.
  14. During the install, you will have to enter the passcode on your iPhone.
  15. Once Finder finishes installing the image, your iPhone will restart.
  16. Now, all that’s left to do is follow the instructions on your iPhone to activate and set up iOS 13. It may already be ready to go, though, so no additional setup may be necessary.
