Officially presented at WWDC 2019, iOS 13 is already available for download in a first beta version. Intended for developers, this release allows you to test all the latest features announced by Apple. However, this year, the procedure for installing it on your iPhone is a bit different than in previous years. Find out how to install iOS 13 on your iPhone below.

First of all, it is worth noting that if you don’t know what you are doing, you should avoid installing this version as it may be unstable and make your device difficult to use. Apple itself warns users of this danger:
Who can install this beta?
Not everyone can get the beta. Only iPhone 6s or later, iPad Air 2 or later, all models of iPad Pro, iPad 5th generation or later, and iPad Mini 4 or later are compatible with iOS 13.
Finally, you need to have a developer account to download and install the beta version.
How to install iOS 13
To the surprise of regular customers, Apple has changed the method of downloading the new iOS beta. Previously, it was possible to install the beta version directly from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. This is no longer possible, as you now need to use a Mac, as you first need to download and install the beta version of Xcode 11, the application builder. Then, open iTunes (whose death was announced yesterday) to install iOS 13, which you will have downloaded earlier.
An alternative method allows you to do without the Xcode 11 beta, but you need to download the beta version of Catalina for macOS 10.15. Again a Mac is required. Just plug in your iPhone, open Finder and install iOS 13.
Either way, we recommend that you make a backup of your data, so that in the event of a problem, you can go back to iOS 12.
Finally, please note that the public beta will be available in June, so you will need to register your device here and install the OTA update.
Are you going to try iOS 13 immediately or will you wait for the final version?
