Apple plans to unveil iOS 13 next month in the WWDC keynote, and we should expect a lot of features and the dark mode from it. If you have an iPhone or an iPad and you wish to install the iOS 13 beta on your device, we can help you. You must start preparing for the software update so that everything goes right from the first day.
Here is what you have to know and what you have to do.
- Device Compatibility – this factor is essential, and some rumors are saying that iOS 13 will support only several devices. The devices rumored are iPhone 6, iPhone 5s, iPhone SE, iPad Air, and iPad Mini 2. Only if you have one of these devices, it is safe to consider an upgrade.
- iTunes and Xcode – for the restore process of your data, iTunes and Xcode are needed. So because betas aren’t nice with the absence of the latter software, you have to download Xcode from the Mac App Store. Xcode can be downloaded for free, and for not running into problems, keep both apps updated. Windows users will have some difficulties at the restore process for the device to iOS 13 beta. The restore process isn’t possible using Microsoft desktop OS, because Apple doesn’t have Xcode for it. To resolve the problem, you have to use the over the air route for installation.
- Back Up Your Data to iTunes or iCloud – one of the vital steps is to back up your data. Use iTunes or iCloud for the backing up your data with what method you prefer. In case of problems with the new beta, you can downgrade to iOS 12 and have all of your data.
- No 32-bit Support – unfortunately, Apple isn’t given support for 32-bit iPhones and iPads anymore, so it’s clear that iOS 13 beta will not be available on old devices such as iPhone 5 or iPad Mini.
Finally, if all our advice is done, then you have to wait for iOS 13 Beta to arrive in the WWDC 2019 from June 3.
