Before you begin you must be aware of a few things. Installing the iOS 18 developer beta is easier than installing previous betas. This is because, with iOS 17’s release, Apple has changed the way users install betas on their devices. You no longer need a file called iOS 18 Beta Configuration Profile to download the beta on your device.

All you need is an Apple ID that is enrolled with the Apple Developer Program. You can sign into your device with the enrolled Apple ID and get the option to download iOS 18 developer beta on your device.
