What you need to know before installing beta software on your device

Here’s what you need to know before signing up for the Apple Public Beta Program.

Most of us here at iMore are what you would call an ”early adopter.” That means we love all the shiny new hardware and software that comes out every year and don’t want to wait around to get our hands on it. And for some of us, even if this wasn’t our job, we still would want to get our hands on beta operating systems from Apple as soon as they come out. Because who likes to wait?

For a few years now, Apple has split up its beta operating systems into Developer Beta and Public Beta. The Developer Beta requires a developer account, of course, but the latter can be obtained by anyone who signs up for it over at beta.apple.com.

Right now, all of the beta software that was introduced at WWDC 2019 is only available as a Developer Beta. The Public Beta will be coming sometime in July. If you’re wondering whether or not you should sign up, we have some words of advice for you to consider.

Here’s how to make a sweet Memoji sticker in iOS 13 (no Face ID necessary)!

New sticker packs are arriving on your mobile devices

First, there were Animoji, then there were Memoji. Now, Apple’s introducing Memoji stickers. Based on those original creations, these digital stickers are usable across your iPhone and iPad apps just like any other sticker pack that lives in your keyboard. Memoji stickers launch this fall on iOS 13 and iPadOS 13.

Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac (sadly, no public beta for the Apple Watch). While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That’s why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final releas…
