You must hear about it everywhere, the new OS (operating system) of our apple devices will be released this fall. Therefore, as usual, Apple makes available beta versions. You can download and install them on your devices, including iPhone.
As of the end of the WWDC 2019 keynote, that is June 3, the developer beta of all devices was available. The public beta version of macOS Catalina, iOS 13, iPadOS and tvOS 13 has been available since June 24. Thus, all users can now install them, especially those impatient to see the new features.
To install the bta diOS 13 diPadOS versions, the process is (very) much the same.
Information to know before installing the bta
First of all, you should know that a bta is not finalized. It potentially has malfunctions which can lead to bugs, restarts, freeze, incompatibility problems of application or even loss of data.
This is why it is advisable to make a backup of your device before going to beta.
Bta users send as much information as possible so that corrections arrive little by little up to an (almost) perfect version.
It is therefore not recommended to install btas on main or production tools.
You can install the bta profile even on a device that cannot install iOS 13 or iPadOS. The beta profile allows you to download the beta version. If your device is not compatible, it will not be able to install the beta version.
To take advantage of the bOS diOS 13 you must have at least an iPhone 6s / 6s Plus or an iPod touch 7th generation.
Regarding iPads on iPadOS, these will be those from iPad Air 2.
step 1: perform an archive backup
It should not be forgotten that a beta version is a test. It is highly recommended to perform an archive backup.
A classic backup with iTunes or iCloud will automatically overwrite, replace the last one, that's why you only have one. An archive backup will not be overwritten.
Note: in this explanation, we assume that you have not installed the version of macOS Catalina, thus keeping the current iTunes features.
1.1. Connect your iPhone to your computer;

1.8. Right click on the backup of your choice (choosing with the backup date and the name of the device;
1.9. Click on Archive.
An archive backup indicates, next to the device name, the date and time of the archive in addition to those of the backup in the other column.
Now that you have made an archive backup, you will be able to install the profile of the public beta version. It is deliberately easy to set up so that as many users as possible can benefit from it.
