As technology lovers we always want to be up to date with the latest news on our iPhone. There comes a point that we no longer need to update before anyone else, we want to try everything before anyone else. This is where betas are a great way to get early access to new features and improvements to iOS and all other operating systems.
It is important to note, however, that these trial versions may contain bugs and issues that have not yet been fixed, just the goal of a beta. Despite this, if we are willing to take the risk, there is a little trick that will allow us to have the latest iOS beta on our iPhone before anyone else.
A little patience and a little resource
As we just discussed, a beta version has bugs. That is exactly why it is released in beta format and not as a final update. In this sense, the recommendation is always to test these systems on devices that are not for daily use. An old iPhone or spare Mac is always helpful in this regard, especially if we are talking about the first betas that are released after WWDC. Then, as the development gets polished, we can take a chance on other devices. Of course, always with a backup in between.
Although now a large part of the system will change, the Settings app on our iPhone notifies us of the new versions of Software that appear. In stable versions, the system deliberately takes time to warn to scale the update globally. In the case of betas, the notice is faster, but not instant.
A search that has a trick
All we have to do to update to the latest iOS beta before anyone else is check for updates. As? Following these steps:
- We open the app Settings on our iPhone or iPad.
- We came in General.
- We came in Software update.
- We wait for the system to search for the update.
- To reload and force another search, we go back to General and we go back into Software update.
By repeating this process, the system will search for the beta feed and show it to us as soon as possible. Here a couple of tips. The first is that, If we have a VPN, we can try to change the server, not necessarily the country, to find a network cache that already has the update available. The second is that we don’t waste time trying to activate airplane mode and turning it off or restarting the iPhone, as these things have no effect on the availability of the update.
Beyond this, we only have to apply a little patience, although, in general, with these resources we can be one of the first to start downloading the beta. Something to keep in mind, then the download queue, especially when there is a lot of demand, can be considerable. Nothing like getting there first.
