    I'm confused. Where are the Profiles??

    The only way to install is through iTunes...

    Probably either aren’t up yet or Apple is cutting down on non/developer installs.

    I don’t know. There is also a new note telling people to only install it on development machines and to wait for the public beta if you are a ‘thrill seeker’.

    I wonder if this is their way of trying to limit the number of installs on non development machines.

    Either that or maybe they just haven’t put them up yet and they’ll show up in a little while.

    I think Apple wants to stop people who are not developers from installing the betas.

    But why would they restrict iOS and iPadOS but not macOS, watchOS, or tvOS?

    Probably just a numbers game. There are more iPhones and iPads out there than Macs, Apple Watches, and Apples TVs. My guess is it's to manage this initial onslaught on their download servers

    7299FDD8-0955-497B-9CE1-9FDF07A3130D.jpeg Apple probably doesn’t want people to use the first beta. It’s probably very buggy.

    They made a quirky note in the downloads page

    But wouldn't that make it easier for people to just share the ipsw file online? or do you need to authenticate as a developer when installing via itunes?

    Guys, could you remind me how to update via iTunes? Haven’t do that in a while. What buttons do you press? I remember there was some kinda button trick. With profiles, you could update with your eyes closed, it was that easy.

    A lot of people in a different thread are having issues doing the update option. Seems like you will have to do a backup and do a clean install

    Yup. Apple on their high horse again telling people how to use their phones. I’ve been installing betas on my devices for years and years. I know the risk involved and there’s always a way to restore back to normal if issues arise.

    But this year looks different. Apple now wants full control over who does what. I was already convinced to go back to Android for my phone purposes but was intrigued with the show today especially for iPadOS.

    Now they want you to have the beta MacOS and the beta Xcode to install iOS? What a joke.

    I’ve been doing this since iOS 5. Always had my UDID registered and downloaded the IPSW. Then they went to OTA which was even better. Now? They lock all that out. Very very frustrating

    I used option+update to select the ispw but required Xcode 11 first

    Saw a few apple devs tweet that you really shouldnt install on your daily driver this year until public beta - supposedly that’s why they made it harder again

    Not sure why?

    Looks like it. Let's hope this isn't how every dev beta update is. :(

    They probably know how unstable it is. Plus, beta access became too easy for everyone with profiles. Maybe those things combined, they didn't want EVERYONE accessing an unstable build. Idk.

    The first build of the beta is probably really unstable, so they don't want people using it who aren't hardcore developers. That's probably why they have the "thrill seeker" note. The public beta will be stable enough for people who aren't hardcore developers.

    This was likely done so people weren't 'sharing' their beta profiles, so you have to register your UDID again and so Apple knows that only Registered Devs are using the betas. Actually it was very smart by Apple, they're protecting those who pay the $99 per year. I'm not gonna say it's easy to upgrade now, but it's protects both Apple & Devs.

    So this seems to screw us Dev's that are on Windows, and using Xamarin. Golf clap.

    For Windows users, this may be the end, with the death and separation of iTunes, unless Apple releases the new apps for Windows, this may be their way of ending support and forcing Windows users to Mac or even iPad only (non-beta).

    I am on the MacOS Catalina beta and I can't figure out how to install the iOS 13 beta. I have downloaded the file, but iTunes is gone and has been replaced with Music. Music shows the phone but has no buttons....don't know what to do.
