iOS 15, which includes new FaceTime capability, an overhauled notification system, and offline Siri support, is currently available to test in beta form ahead of its final release later this year. What’s the catch? The beta isn’t open to everyone – not yet, at least.
We strongly advise you not to test this beta on a vital device. Yes, you can revert to iOS or iPadOS 14, but it’s not a quick or painless procedure, and you can lose some of the data you haven’t backed up or saved in the cloud.
How to download the iOS 15 Developer Beta Profile
Right now, the only way to obtain iOS 15 on your iPhone is if you’re an Apple developer. Here’s how to get the iOS 15 beta once you’ve enrolled as an iOS developer:

- A pop-up window will open, asking if you want to download the profile to your iPhone. Tap Accept.
- Go to the Settings app and select Profile Downloaded from the drop-down menu. If the iOS 15 beta profile does not appear, go to General > Profile and select it.
- To install the iOS 15 beta profile, tap Install in the top-right corner.
