You Can Download iOS 12 Beta Without Developer Account - We Don't Recommend it, But You May Go Ahead if You Want
Currently, only developers are download the iOS 12 Beta and you need a paid membership with Apple in order to do so as well. Thankfully, there is going to be a Public Beta of the software available some time at a later date which everyone can try out for free. But the problem with that is quite obvious: it will be available later. Not right now.
So, if you don't want to spend a dime and want to try out the new software right now, then there's a way you can follow to get in on the action. But remember, this is something which Apple does not sanction at all, and may even cause your device to stop functioning in case the Cupertino company decides to thwart the process completely. Sure, you can bring everything back to normal by simply performing a downgrade, but you will lose all your files and settings therefore take a backup of everything using iTunes or iCloud before you even think about going ahead.
At this point, it's safe to say that we will not be responsible if something does go wrong. You go beyond this point at your own risk.
- First and foremost, make sure your device is compatible with iOS 12 Beta: iOS 12 Beta Device Compatibility List
- Download this iOS 12 Configuration Profile straight onto your device and install it. The file is hosted on Dropbox.
- Restart your iPhone or iPad when asked.
- Connect to WiFi, head over to Settings > General > Software Update.
- Once you see the iOS 12 software update, tap on Download and Install.
- If all goes well, you can start using iOS 12 Beta normally on your device.
Remember, if you wish to go back to iOS 11.x, you will lose your files and settings since the process involves a clean restore of the iOS 11.x firmware using iTunes.
On a serious note, though how desperate you might be to try out iOS 12 Beta, I would suggest waiting for the Public Beta to arrive first. it will be a more stable build compared to what is available to developers right now and it's a truly legit way of trying out preview software without signing up with Apple.
