How to test the public beta versions of iOS 13, iPadOS 13, macOS Catalina 10.15, and tvOS 13

The first public beta versions of iOS 13, of iPadOS 13, of macOS Catalina 10.15 It's from tvOS 13 are among us even earlier than expected. Even so, one caveat here is important.

Such public beta versions are equivalent to the second test versions available to developers. And, at least with respect to iOS / iPadOS 13, Apple makes it clear how “dangerous” they are by giving the following warning:

Important note for those who like emotions: If you are interested in living on the edge and trying out the latest new features in iOS 13, we strongly recommend waiting for the many bugfixes and refinements that will arrive public beta next month.

The big problem, as I said above, is that these versions are basically equivalent, so apparently there weren't many bugfixes and refinements. Many are even questioning Apple about the rush to release these public releases before the deadline. It would be far more prudent to stick to the deadline and release more round / refined public beta versions, perhaps alongside third-party developer testing a week from now.

For developers, even the news is not very good: as thousands (or even millions) of people will use an unstable operating system (and establish this as reality), many developers will start to receive a flood of criticism for not yet having their properly prepared applications optimized for new OSs.

Did you understand the message even though Apple didn't, anyway? Do you want to install? a right of yours, but every little care. The developer Guilherme Rambo, for example, it was clear:

Just a reminder that the iOS 13 public beta released today is the same iOS 13 developer beta, which is buggy, especially with AirPods and things related to AirPlay. NO install.

Still do you want to take the risk? So at least follow the recommendations below.

How to prepare to test iOS / iPadOS 13

The first thing you need to do is see if your iPhone / iPad is compatible with future operating systems and you can do that in this article.

compatible? If so, then proceed to make a backup. Many apps and services may not work as expected and your data, once you use iOS / iPadOS 13, may not be compatible with previous versions of the system. So make sure you back up your iOS device Apple itself recommends making a local backup using iTunes (if you are using macOS Mojave or earlier).

If you are using macOS Catalina, the process is the same, but Finder does, since the future system will not have iTunes.

The company even suggests that you archive the backup so you don't risk writing a new backup over it using iOS / iPadOS 13 and losing iOS 12 compatible data.

In addition to being prepared for potential app / service issues, be aware that your battery will most likely last a lot less when using such an OS for testing, due to a number of factors one of the main things Apple monitors for aspects of the system to capture. relevant information which may assist in its development, for example.

Be aware, too, that some features of iOS / iPadOS 13 are not yet working as they should in this first test release, and that you will have to deal with a device that crashes and restarts on its own because of these many issues involving a beta version.

Finally, I need to sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program. After that, visit beta.apple/profile on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to download the setup profile; on the device, go to General Settings Software Update to install the beta version.

Okay, good headache good fun! Please note that you will now receive all public beta updates that Apple releases (usually one every two weeks).

How to prepare to test macOS Catalina

Although they are different systems, the recommendations are the same. After you sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program, make sure your Mac is compatible with macOS Catalina.

Then back up your data and files before installing the public beta Time Machine can be a great ally; If you have two or more Macs, Apple recommends installing on a secondary system.

If you, like most, have only one Mac, I suggest installing macOS Catalina on a second partition Apple itself teaches you how to do this if you have using Apple File System (APFS) or other formats like Mac OS Extended, MS-DOS ( FAT) and ExFAT.

After downloading the public beta of macOS, the installer automatically launches for you to install; If you plan to install in a second partition, pay attention to choosing it at the appropriate time. Otherwise, the installation will be done in your main partition, where you are running macOS Mojave, High Sierra or earlier.

Remembering that, from this installation, you will receive all MacOS public updates until the operating system is officially released to the general public in September / October.

How to prepare to test tvOS 13

TvOS 13 is undoubtedly the simplest to test and most likely the roundest operating system, as changes are few. There is no doubt here: if you have an Apple TV HD (fourth generation) or an Apple TV 4K (fifth generation), you can run tvOS 13.

Once properly registered with the Apple Beta Software Program, go to Accounts Adjustments on your Apple TV. Under “Apple ID,” sign up for at least one of your account options (iCloud, iTunes, and App Store or Game Center) with the same Apple ID you used to sign up for the Apple Beta Software Program.
