How to install iOS 15 developer beta


At its highly anticipated WWDC session on Monday, June 7, Apple introduced a slew of new features for the upcoming update to its iOS mobile operating system: iOS 15. The developer beta is now available to anyone who wants to download it — and whoever is a registered developer.

First, the mandatory warning: this version of iOS 15 is going to be very new and very beta. If you’re a developer, you know all this, but it’s worth repeating: it’s best to install this on a phone that isn’t the one you rely on. In addition, remember that backups are your friend.

  • You can find the iOS 15 developer beta at Apple Developer Website. You do need to log in, of course (we assume you paid $99 for a developer account). You may be prompted to register your device if it is not already registered.
  • Locate the iOS 15 profile by choosing Downloads (either from the button in the top right corner, or by using the two-line drop-down menu in the top left).
  • Search for the iOS profile and allow the download.
  • Once the profile has been downloaded, go to the settings on your device, find ‘Profile downloaded’ and follow the instructions. You will eventually be told to reboot and then be able to install the update available in Settings > General > Software Update.

If you’re not enrolled as an Apple developer, don’t worry—a public beta will be available for download sometime in July. If it’s available, we’ll let you know where to find it and how to install it.
