iOS 15 is all over the news. It’s Apple’s most advanced operating system to date, and it’s expected to bring a lot of new features. The first beta of iOS 15 is accessible by registered developers only. But why forgo the goodness when you can use a workaround to install iOS 15 beta 1 directly using an iOS 15 configuration profile, and that too without a computer? This article will show you how to do exactly that and test iOS 15 on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
iOS 15 comes with several new upgrades like better directions in Maps, convenient sharing in iMessage and spatial audio for FaceTime. Apple Maps also offers new ways to explore your surroundings, while the Weather app has been overhauled to include new ‘graphical displays’ featuring data. You also get new privacy controls for Mail, Siri, and other places across the OS.
Before we proceed, it’s a good idea to create a backup of your device to iCloud or via iTunes to keep your information safe. Once you do that, follow the steps below to install iOS 15 beta 1 through the OTA software update.
