iOS 15 Beta: Should You Upgrade to iOS 15 Beta and How to Do it
Apple's iOS 15 beta software is officially available to the public. It's a given that people are excited anytime a new iOS comes out, especially considering all the amazing new features Apple is thinking up every year. With each new iOS, just when we think technology has reached new and unbeatable heights, it is surpassed with new updates, new apps, new features, and more convenient ways to use your devices.
So, it is no surprise the number of people who jump to upgrade to beta software the moment it's released. In fact, I love upgrading to betas. It's a great opportunity as a techy to get a head start on the new iOS, give feedback, and be truly involved in the process of that iOS release.
However, upgrading to beta software is absolutely not for everyone. In fact, it isn't recommended by Apple to upgrade to their iOS beta software, and I wouldn't recommend it either unless you understand the risks and have realistic expectations of the process.
In this guide, I help you determine if upgrading to Apple's newest iOS beta software is right for you by giving you all the facts, risks, time, and energy that comes with upgrading to beta.
To be compatible with the iOS 15 beta you must have an iPhone 6s Plus or later, an iPhone SE (first or second generation will work here), or an iPod Touch (seventh generation).
Note: In this guide, I am specifically referencing iOS and iPadOS devices. However, many factors can similar in regards to Mac products. Make sure you take the necessary steps to protect your data and your Apple devices. Also, this guide can reference any beta release. The risks to upgrade to beta do not generally change per launch and have remained the same for years, though some iOS betas have different bugs than others, of course.
