Before we dive into the process of showing you how to install iOS 10 Public Beta, there are a few things which should be made clear.

2. Make a complete backup of your data using iCloud and iTunes.
3. Head over to beta.apple.com from your iPhone or iPad on which you wish to install iOS 10 Public Beta.
4. Assuming you've already signed up for Apple's Beta Program, click on the 'Sign In' button at the top right hand corner. If you haven't, then click on 'Sign Up,' which can be located scrolling down a little on the main page.
5. Once signed in, tap on 'Enroll Your Device' then select 'iOS.'
6. Scroll down a little and look for a blue 'Download Profile' button. Once found, tap on it.
Pro tip: simply visit beta.apple.com/profile to go directly to the profile page.
7. Follow the on-screen instructions for installing the profile on your 'iPhone' not anywhere else then head over to Settings > General > Software Update to download and install iOS 10 Public Beta.
Your device will restart at this point and you'll boot into iOS 10 Public Beta after a few minutes. Your data will remain unchanged and you won't lose anything at all during the installation process. But that does not mean you skip the process of creating a backup of everything as we mentioned in step 2 of the guide.
