Download And Install iOS 12 Beta 2 Without Developer Account

Update: Latest update is draining my iPhone 6s’ battery very fast. Not recommended.

Apple unveiled iOS 12 preview a few weeks ago. As of now, it is only available to the developer community for testing. Which means you need to have a developer account to download and install iOS beta 2 on your iOS devices.

iOS 12 is compatible with these devices.

  • iPhone X
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 5s
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2nd generation
  • 12.9-inch iPad Pro 1st generation
  • 10.5-inch iPad Pro

  • iPad 5th generation
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad Air
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 2
  • iPod touch 6th generation

But, luckily, there are workarounds to install iOS 12 previews without a developer account. All you have to do is install an ios_12_beta_profile.mobileconfig Profile.

So, I’m going to give it a try anyway.

And you; continue reading if you’re willing to take the risk.

Step 1: Visit “this link” from your iPhone or iPad and tap “allow”. Your device will prompt you to restart after installing the profile. Just do it.

Step 2: Go to General -> Software Update. You’d be able to see iOS 12 beta 2 as an available over-the-air (OTA) firmware update.

Step 3: Tap on Download and install and wait for your device to prepare the update. The download may take a few minutes, and it entirely depends on your WiFi connection and device model.

Step 4: Tap on “Install Now” when you’re ready. Happy testing!

Here are my comments on iOS 12 beta 2.

  1. My iPhone 6s performs faster comparing to iOS 11’s latest public release.
  2. I feel the animation is smooth.
  3. Screentime, Google has been doing it for years. But it’s good to see Apple adopting such an important feature.
  4. Grouped notifications, a much-needed feature!
