Apple opened its first look at iOS 12 at WWDC 2018 on June 4th. If you want to try out all the new features before everyone else gets the stable version in September, you can install one of the beta versions on your iPhone
First published to developers over eight and a half months after iOS 11 conquered all users' devices in September of last year iOS 12 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch will be made available to the public through Apple's beta software program. Whether you're a registered Apple developer or someone who wants to install public beta, we'll cover both methods below.
Before you jump the gun and set up your iPhone with the latest and best from Apple, However, there are some housekeeping that you need to look out for first. Although not necessary skipping an archived backup can cause more problems than the time it takes to complete. Unless, of course, you enjoy losing all your data.
Apple's new mobile operating system has actually broken only update cycle records, as this is the sixth major iOS version of the iPhone 5S. Previously, the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 had a total of five major operating system versions.
- iPhone 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, SE, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus, X
- iPad Air, Air 2, Mini 2, Mini 3, Mini 4, Pro (12 , 9 inches), Pro (9.7 inches), iPad (9.7 inches), Pro (10.5 inches)
- iPod touch (6th generation)
In this guide, we assume that You are upgrading an iPhone, but the operation is the same for all compatible iOS devices, ie for a compatible iPad and iPod touch.
Archive an iOS 11 Backup
If Your Experience Because iOS 11 was flawed, you may want these days to be far behind you. We get it. But if you dive into the beta version of iOS 12, you should make a backup of your iPhone, as it currently looks. If something goes wrong with the beta test and you have no backup, you can not go back to iOS 11 without losing everything on your iPhone.
After backing up with iTunes, select "iTunes" in the menu bar, followed by "Settings," then click on the "Devices" tab. Right-click on your backup in the list and select "Archive" to protect it. Now, backing up your iPhone with iOS 12 will save that backup separately, leaving your archived iOS 11 backup untouched and recoverable should something happen.
Of course, this method only makes sense as long as Apple iOS 11 is signed. Once Apple declares iOS 11 a relic of the past that will be around in October 2018, your archive is almost gone – unless you back up your SHSH2 blobs. This method allows you to outsmart iTunes so that you can restore an iPhone to an unsigned version of iOS. It's a bit more intense than the above step, but it better protects your archive.
