Sign up for Apple's Beta Software Program and take an earlier test run of iOS 13. Although the full, public version of iOS 13 will be available in September, users can now install it on their iPhone.

If you've never installed a beta version of iOS or Android, please consider the following;

  • Beta versions typically see far more bugs and glitches than the official public release.
  • Features that are available during beta may function differently or be missing entirely once the full version is available.
  • It is highly recommended that you perform a full backup via iTunes on your Mac or PC.

*** IMPORTANT ***

The following devices support iOS 13:

  • iPhone XS/XS Max
  • iPhone XR
  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8/8 Plus
  • iPhone 7/7 Plus
  • iPhone 6S/6S Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPod Touch (7th gen)
