Apple iPhone users, here’s how you can get ‘new features’ before others

NEW DELHI: Apple every year releases a new iOS update with new features and enhancements in almost every section for millions of iPhone and iPad users. Last year it released iOS 11 and this year it is widely expected to bring iOS 12. While the iOS version is introduced at WWDC 2018 in June, Apple starts rolling it out in September or October to end users. However, there is a way using which anybody can get access to upcoming iOS versions before they actually hit iPhones and iPads at the end of each year. It is by enrolling in the company’s Apple Beta Software Program.

Those enrolled in this program get access to iOS public beta versions a bit early than the rest of the crowd and can use the new features as well. Although these versions are not the final version, they do give you a fair idea of what the end product will look like. Here are some steps on how to become a member. Apple usually keeps such programs in order to get a feedback from users of any bugs or any other issues.

While today we’re only talking about iOS beta program, similar programs are there for macOS and tvOS as well.

Step 1: Visit https://beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/welcome and sign in to your account.

Step 2: Before installing the beta software, backup the data so that you don’t lose content in case things don’t go as planned.

Step 3: From the iOS device (iPhone or iPad), visit beta.apple.com/profile website to download the configuration profile.

Step 4: Once downloaded, the iOS device will prompt automatically to install it. Follow the instructions on the screen.

Step 5: After this the device will get an OTA update for the beta version of the latest iOS. You can tap to Settings > General > Software Update. And voila!

Apple is expected to introduce iOS 12 in June this year during the WWDC 2018 conference. The conference meant for developers will be taking place from June 4 through June 8. Apple will be holding the event at the McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, US.
