Have you signed up for the iOS 15 or iPadOS 15 public beta yet? The updates are available for those who are willing and brave enough to install the unfinished software to get an early look at all of the new features coming to Apple’s devices later this year. As long as you have a compatible iPhone or iPad (there’s a list at the bottom of this post), you can sign up and install the new software. Just remember, you need to be willing to live with software that may not work 100% of the time. This public beta means you’re free to tinker with the iOS 15 preview to your heart’s content.
iOS 15 is here. Well, almost. We’ll tell you everything you need to know.
The update brings plenty of new features to both devices. For example, there are new FaceTime features (allowing Android and PC users to take part for the first time) and iMessage improvements that make it easier to track links and photos your friends have sent. The iPad is getting a complete home screen revamp, and multitasking is finally receiving the boost it’s needed for years.
Before you rush on to the installation steps below, take a minute to create a backup of your iPhone or iPad on your computer. You can go back to iOS 14 if you decide iOS 15 isn’t stable enough for you, but any iCloud backups made on iOS 15 can’t be used to restore a device on iOS 14. By creating a backup on your computer before enrolling in the public beta, you’ll have a restore point. With the boring part out of the way, let’s dive into the installation process.

The public beta launched at the end of June, and we’ve seen Apple stick its traditional schedule of releasing a beta update roughly every two weeks.
