Nevertheless, there is something you’ll need to know about betas. A beta is not a complete system, this means that it is still in the testing phase. This also means that may come with a lot of bugs that could make it unusable for regular phone users. Developers and tech enthusiasts who are used to betas will not have many problems with it. However, if you are a regular iPhone user, you need to think this through before installing it. The installation process could cause data loss, thus, it is important to back up your data before installing it. Also, experiences on betas are sometimes significantly different depending on the apps that are in use.

The new iOS 18 comes with a long list of new features Apple Intelligence, a redesigned Home Screen, Lock Screen, and Control Center. The Message app and Mail app also have new upgrades. Other updates include RCS support, a new Calculator app for the iPad, and enhancements to the Notes, Calendar, and Reminders apps.

Devices compatible with iOS 18

Yesterday, Apple officially announced the devices that are compatible with iOS 18 and iPadOS 18. Thus, before we discuss how to install the beta, it is important to check the list below if your device supports the system. However, note that Apple Intelligence is not available at the moment. Apple says that it will arrive this fall. When it arrives, it will only work in US English on the iPhone 15 Pro, the iPhone 15 Pro Max, and the iPad and Mac with M1 and later.
