What plenty of people don’t know, though, is that the company has an iPadOS beta program that allows you to get your hands on upcoming features before the general public. Here’s how to enroll your iPad and get your hands on the latest and greatest software additions.

How to install iPadOS 15 beta

Before you install an iPadOS beta on your iPad, you should know that there are risks in doing so. Features and/or apps may break partially or completely. And, as a worst-case scenario, your iPad itself may be bricked if things go wrong. So if you depend on your iPad for work or studies, you might want to stick to stable releases. If you decide to proceed, follow the steps below:

  • Using Safari on your iPad, visit developer.apple.com or beta.apple.com and download the iPadOS beta profile. The former link requires an Apple Developer account and gives you access to developer beta builds. The latter program is free for all users to join, but public beta builds tend to land a while after developer betas.
