You can install iOS and/or watchOS betas on your devices without needing an active Apple Developer account. This is achieved via signed Profile Certificates that allow your device(s) to receive the OTA update (and to continue receiving them once the profile is installed).

Current Betas:
  • iOS 12.0 Developer Beta 2
  • watchOS 5.0 Developer Beta 2
iOS 12 Instructions:
  1. Download the iOS 12 beta profile (scan) on your iOS device.
  2. Click "Install" in the top right.
  3. Agree to the terms/conditions.
  4. Once the profile is installed and your device reboots, to to Settings -> General -> Software Update.
The profile must remain installed in order for you to continue receiving iOS 12 beta updates.

Implications:
  • iOS 12 is only for 64-bit devices.
  • When updating to iOS 12, from iOS 11 or lower, any backups you make of your device via iTunes or iCloud will NOT be usable if you downgrade to iOS 11 or lower. 32-bit applications do not work on iOS 12 betas. You will receive an error stating that the developer needs to update the application for iOS 12.
watchOS 5 Instructions:
  1. Download the watchOS 5 beta profile (scan) to the iPhone paired to your Apple Watch
  2. Install the watchOS 5 beta profile
  3. Open the Watch app:
    1. My Watch -> General -> Software Update -> Download & Install Update
    2. Enter your passcode
    3. Agree to the terms/conditions
    4. Click Install
  4. Wait for the update to download and install
Implications:
  • Please remember that you cannot manually downgrade your Apple Watch from Watch OS 4 beta. You will need to send it into an Apple Service Center in order to get it downgraded. You can read up on how to do so here. You may also need to have the iOS 12 beta installed on your iPhone for the watchOS 5 beta to install properly.
If you have any questions regarding the information provided in this thread, please feel free to ask. I'll do my best to provide an accurate answer.

You need to have your UDID registered to install it via the IPSW. That's why we're using the Configuration Profile. It will allow us to update via OTA without being registered.

Edit: just finished downloading, it's installing.

I'm obviously cooler. Nah, you probably had a download cap since you live in a crappy place :tongue: It downloaded nearly instantly for me, and installed instantly.

You guys will love it. As far as beta 1's go, it's nice and snappy and doesn't have battery life issues, from what I've seen anyway. Next thing on my list is WatchOS 3, then macOS Sierra.

Downloaded pretty fast, but was at Verifying for like 10 minutes ;-;.
