Yesterday, Apple has officially introduced its latest iOS operating system with a number of new upgrade and features. iOS 13 version comes with the specific Dark Mode, which is very helpful for AMOLED-display iPhone models like iPhone X, XS, XS Max. If you are eager to the new iOS version and would like to experience the great features of iOS 13, you can now update your iPhone/iPad to the iOS 13 beta 1 version.

When Apple releases later updates, I will also post them in this post. Now, let’s start updating your iPhone/iPad to the iOS 13 beta version.

Install iOS 13 Beta On iPhone/iPad

Before proceeding, you should first backup the data on your iPhone/iPad since the process will wipe everything on your device.

Back Up Your iPhone/iPad

Updating to iOS 13 beta will delete data on your iPhone/iPad, so you should back up it first in case you want to downgrade to iOS 12 version.


If you backup your iPhone after updating iOS 13 version, then this backup will not be possible to use on older iOS 12 version, so you should keep in mind this.

  • On your iPhone/iPad, go to Settings > Your Apple ID > iCloud and enable iCloud backup.
  • If you use iTunes to backup your file, make sure your computer is already installed the latest version of iTunes. After that, plug your iOS device into the computer, wait for it to recognize your device. Click on Summary tab and select Back Up Now
