It won’t be much longer until Apple finally pulls back the curtain on iPadOS, the very first operating system made specifically with the iPad in mind. It’s going to bring a lot of huge improvements to the iPad experience, and many can’t wait to get their hands on it. Some have the ability to do that early thanks to the beta, and this article will let you know how you can get into it.
If you have any interest in getting into the iPadOS beta that is currently ongoing, you need to sign up for Apple’s beta software program. Once you’ve done that you will get the iPadOS/iOS 13.1 beta over-the-air once you’ve installed the proper certificate on an iOS device. Signing up for this program will also give you access to macOS and tvOS betas, which is a great way to get try out new operating systems before they release officially.
Of course, as is the case with any beta testing program, you need to be very careful when testing this unfinished OS and must be aware of the risks. Considering that Apple is still tweaking this OS, there will undoubtedly be some bugs and some of them may be serious. Just to be safe, make sure you back up your current settings on your device in case something really bad happens and you need to restore. This is unlikely to happen, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
An official release date has not yet been announced for this OS, with Apple simply saying that it will come this fall. However, it is very likely that the company will release the new OS shortly after the release of their new product launches, which will happen in just a couple of weeks. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
