Download iOS 12 Beta 3 Without Developer Account Right Away
Can't wait for the second Public Beta to arrive? Here's how you can download and install iOS 12 Beta 3 right now without a developer account.
Developers Get First Dibs on Betas - We'll Show You How You Can Install iOS 12 Beta 3 Before Anyone Else
It's no secret at this point that developers get the freshest releases of software followed by those enrolled in the Beta Software Program. Sure, the Beta Software Program is absolutely free, giving users the ability to try out beta software without having to spend a dime, but let's face it: the delivery of updates is a tad bit slower compared to what you'd get if you were a registered developer.
Today, Apple released iOS 12 Beta 3 and developers are already enjoying what the company has packed into this release. Eventually, public beta testers will be able to grab the update, hopefully in a few hours or maybe a day if we're lucky. But if you wish to download and install iOS 12 Beta 3 right now, then grabbing hold of the developer configuration profile is the way to go at this point. You can learn more about the process by going here.
Remember one thing though: if you already have the public beta installed on your device, then do not bother with this method as it only works if you have iOS 11 installed on your device since the profile pushes the developer version of the iOS 12 Beta update to you over the air. Also, before you go ahead with the download, please make sure that you have backed up everything to a safe and secure location such as iTunes or iCloud. This method of installing updates is clearly not sanctioned by Apple and there's no telling when the company would end up thwarting updates like these, therefore precaution will take you an extra mile in a lot of ways.
To be quite honest, I wouldn't risk my device in any way just to try out a beta earlier than those enrolled in the public beta program. Both builds are going to be absolutely the same, except that they are seeded at different time periods.
