Preparing the device

Before installing a new version of the operating system, it is recommended to make a backup copy of the device. This is necessary in case something goes wrong during the installation, or you decide to roll back to iOS 11.

And remember: the backup copy of iOS 12 beta is not compatible with iOS 11.4 and below.

On the device itself

Step 1 . Go to Settings -> Apple ID -> iCloud -> Backup.

Step 2 . Turn on the iCloud Backup toggle and wait for the completion.

Via iTunes

Step 1 . Connect the iPhone or iPad to the computer on the wire and open iTunes.

Step 2 . Go to the top of the program in the section with your device.

Step 3 . In the Automatic Copy Creation section, select this computer .

Step 4 . Click Create a copy now and wait for the backup to finish.

That’s all, we are prepared for a bad outcome.

How to install iOS 12 Public Beta

Now it’s time to install iOS 12 Public Beta on your iOS device. We proceed.

Step 1 . We go to the site of beta testers Apple.

Step 2 . Click Register and enter the information from your Apple ID.

Step 3 . Next, we need to register your device for testing the new OS.

Click on this link and download the profile.

Step 4 . Reboot the device, go to Settings -> General -> Software Update .

Why do not I download the beta?

Most likely, the problem lies in the previously pre-installed profile for beta testing. It must be deleted.

Be sure to delete the old profile and reboot the device. It is located in the Settings -> General -> Profiles menu .

Then you can start downloading and installing iOS 12 beta.
