How To Update To iOS 16

iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 are currently available for testing. Betas can be downloaded throughout the entire summer, with the official releases expected mid-September.

In these very early stages you need an iOS 16 Developer Profile to be able to install iOS 16 or iPadOS 16 Beta on your device. These configuration profiles can be downloaded by registered (paying) Apple developers from their Apple Developer accounts.

iOS 16 Developer Beta can be also installed from third-party sources (not recommended).
