Apple’s much-awaited iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 are both launching on the 20th of September, but currently, their public beta variations are available for those who want early access to exploring the all-new software (with the risk of facing a few bugs here and there).
Before we get started since the software is still in the public beta phase, it is advisable to take a back-up of your data- just to be safe. Coming to the devices that will be able to support the all-new software- the ability to update to iOS 15 will be available for iPhone SE as well as all iPhones from 6S and 6S Plus onwards.
To get started with the installation, get to Apple’s beta software portal from your phone’s Safari browser and agree to sign in with your Apple ID. Next up, select “Enroll Your Devices” within the drop-down menu at the top right of the webpage, if it automatically doesn’t route you there. Then select “iOS,” which is the left-most option on the next page. Doing so will reveal a reminder to make sure that you’ve sent a backup of your phone’s content to your macOS computer, in case you need to revert to a previous state.
Scroll down until you find a button that says “Download profile,” then tap on it. This will bring up a warning that says the website is trying to download a configuration profile. Select “Allow.” You will get a pop-up window that says you can set the new profile from the Settings app.
Lastly, open the Settings app. A new section called “Profile Downloaded” should be added near the top. Select it, and you’ll have access to the beta software download. You may need to restart your phone for the profile to activate.
