How do I install the beta and which compatible devices?

During WWDC, Apple presented the new versions of iOS, iPadOS and macOS. While they are waiting for the stable version to be released in a few months, the Cupertino-based company is starting beta tests that provide an overview of the new functions.

Currently, you can only install iOS 15, iPadOS 15, or macOS Monterey if you have a developer profile. Still, the company plans to release beta versions of these updates for its operating systems to the general public in July. Even if you’re not a developer, there is still a chance to test out Apple’s new features before they are officially released.

Of course, you need a compatible device. And there is already a procedure in place to take advantage of these public betas when they are available.

In order to be able to participate in the Apple beta programs, you must first register with your Apple ID on the following page: https://beta.apple.com/sp/en/betaprogram/.

Once you have completed registration for the beta program, you can register your devices and follow the various instructions depending on the platform that interests you.
