First public beta of iOS 12 released

If you've tried out early versions of Apple software before, you can sign in using the same account.

Again though, it's a beta, and you should proceed with caution. Of note, Siri Shortcuts, arguably one of the most useful features of iOS 12, is absent. So it sounds like the first public beta is more or less the same build as the second developer build.

In all honesty, iOS 12 beta 1 was extremely stable, so we expect this to be a seamless and impressive development period ahead of September release. After, from your iOS device, visit beta.apple.com/profile, and download the iOS Beta Configuration Profile. Screen Time also lets users limit access to specific apps.

For Apple users willing to try the beta, it's good idea to back up your device on iTunes before installing the software. The update will be available on all the same devices that received iOS 11.




Developers who regularly build software for Apple's iPhone and iPad hardware now have access to the second pre-release seed of iOS 12, iOS 12 beta 2.

But if you have an iPad or iPhone you don't need, here's how to download it. Don't release the buttons when you see the Apple logo.

If our predictions are accurate, then iOS 12 will have a huge testing community paying attention to it very soon.

The other big theme of the year is new features to help you spend less time using your phone. These include better performance, an overhauled notification system - notifications are finally grouped in iOS 12 - and of course, there's the new Memoji, which allows you to customise your own character. Developers will be able to take advantage of a new file format for augmented reality and new features in ARKit 2.0. The roster of Animoji characters that first debuted with the iPhone X has also expanded with a ghost, koala, tiger, and tyrannosaurus rex.
