You asked for it and it's here. iOS 13 public beta for iPhone and iPadOS 13 public beta for iPad is now available.
Apple has released the public betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 for iPhone and iPad users, respectively. What this means is that you don't have to fiddle around with an Apple Developer Program membership in order to install these betas onto your devices as the Beta Software Program from Apple is absolutely free.
Before you go ahead and download the iOS 13 public beta and iPadOS 13 public beta, please keep in mind that these updates carry the same changes as its developer-only counterpart. If you believe that this beta might be 'missing' some features, then you'd be mistaken. Also, unlike the developer beta, the public betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS 13 are available as over the air downloads only.
Last but not the least, we will highly recommend that you go ahead and take a backup of everything right now using iTunes or iCloud. You won't lose your files or settings after you have installed the beta, but it's a good idea to keep your precious data all backed up in case something does go wrong or you decide to perform a downgrade down the line.
