Here’s how to download iOS 12 beta 1 Configuration Profile without having a registered UDID or developer account on Apple Developer Program portal.
By now you all know that Apple has officially pushed iOS 12 beta 1 out into the development community. That release means all registered members can get their hands on the initial pre-release seed of iOS 12 right now.
Anyone who doesn’t have access to a developer account, or who don’t have their device UDID registered with Apple, can also get access to it without having to wait for Apple to push the update for public testers to Apple Beta Software Program later this month. This is a specific process that you need to understand right away.
This installation method involves the conjunction of a verified Apple Configuration Profile that triggers an OTA update to the beta firmware. Fair things to do before any and all beta build installations, backup your device to iCloud or iTunes before starting. And also. Make sure you have secured your data in case something goes wrong in any matter or you decide to go for a fresh restore later on.
This official confirmation means that Apple can finally drop support for a number of devices leaving the final list of supported iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to 64-bit hardware only. Check if your device is compatible with iOS 11 installation:
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 5s
iPad Pro (9.7-inch)
iPad Pro (12.9-inch)
- 2017 iPad Pro (12.9-inch)
- 2017 iPad Pro (10.5-inch)
iPad mini 4
iPad mini 3
iPad mini 2
iPad Air 2
- iPod touch 6th generation
That’s what you need to do right now.
Step 1: On your iOS device you want to run iOS 12 beta 1 (I used iPhone SE), launch Safari, and open this downloadable link: ufile.io/ntrih
Step 2: You should notice that there is the download button. Tap on that to begin the process of downloading the iOS beta configuration profile file to your iPhone or iPad. Once when prompted about a device you would like to install the profile on, select “iPhone.”
Step 3: You will now be taken to an Install Profile screen. Select Install in the top corner to perform the installation. Once that’s done completely, your device will automatically reboot itself. This is expected and a normal behavior of the procedure. If it doesn’t automatically reboot, make sure you manually do a reboot.
Step 4: After reboot, your device will regain control, launch the native Settings app and navigate to General > Software Update. Now, thanks to the fact that you have just installed an active beta configuration profile, the system should display iOS 12 beta 1 as an available download & Install (OTA) firmware update.
Step 5: You can simply select the button at the bottom of that view to initiating the process. Sit back having a coffee on hand, and wait for that iOS 12 goodness to be installed on your device.
Remember, once the process has completed and the device has rebooted back to the lock screen, you will be running the initial beta version of iOS 12 build, so make sure that you put it through its paces and test everything that Apple has introduced during the opening WWDC keynote. Happy testing!
