Using beta versions of iOS or iPadOS requires a degree of patience in dealing with errors, low battery life, and features that simply do not work. If you've recently decided to install iOS 13 or iPadOS when Apple launched public beta to repent it a few days later, despite all ( sometimes hidden ] ) new features – there are good and (potentially) bad news.
The good news is that you can return to the current official release of iOS 12, and the process is not overly complicated or difficult. Bad news depends on whether or not you made a backup of your iPhone or iPad before installing Beta.
Schedule an hour (longer if your Internet connection is slow) to return to iOS 12.  http://www.cnet.com/ "height =" 110 "width =" 196 “/>

The best tricks for iOS 13 Beta
You made a backup, right?
I hope you have backed up your device before installing the public beta. Without a backup, you need to set up your device as a new one before venturing into iOS 13.
Why? A backup created on iOS 13 can not be used to restore a device running iOS 12. To leave the beta and return to the latest official iOS release, iOS 12 must be installed in recovery mode. The downside is that if you use iOS 13 for several weeks, you will lose all the new data that has been accumulating on your device since your last backup.
Enough errors, it's time to return to iOS 12.
Before you begin, make sure that your computer has the latest version of iTunes installed. If you are not sure, start iTunes and you should be prompted to refresh if it is out of date.
Next, open iTunes and connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer with the appropriate cable. For the next step, the device must be put in recovery mode. This is a bit tricky because it varies depending on the device.
iPhone 8 or later : Press the volume up button, then the volume down button, and then press and hold the side button. Hold down the side key until the recovery mode screen appears.
iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus : Press and hold the standby button and the volume button at the same time. Hold down both buttons until the recovery mode screen is displayed.
iPhone 6S or older or an iPod touch : You need to hold down the standby button and the home button at the same time. Hold down both buttons until the recovery mode screen is displayed.
iPad user : Press and hold the standby button and the home button at the same time. If you have a new iPad Pro with Face ID, you must first increase the volume, then decrease the volume and then hold down the side key.
When iTunes detects a device in recovery mode, it prompts you to restore or update the device. Click Restore followed by Restore and Update .
The rest of the process is done by iTunes. Just follow the instructions. Your device will be restarted several times throughout the process. Do not disconnect the phone from your computer until you are advised that this is safe.
After iTunes has the latest version of iOS 12 installed, you can restore it from a backup, whether it's on iTunes or through iCloud.
