    Hi everyone,

    I have found a couple links and youtube videos that show how to install the iOS 10 beta without being a developer. The person who created the video provides the developer profile on the video to download and then you are able to install the beta as a developer. Is this safe to do?

    Why not just wait a couple weeks for the public beta? It will be available next month.

    As long as profile is legit, then it is safe.
    But yeah, wait for public beta is better for you.

    It's safe but not always recommended as reverting back may not be as easy for some as it is for seasoned testers or users. So judging from you asking the question in the first place, you may wanna wait until beta 2 or the public beta. Those will likely be less buggy and the chances of you being displeased and needing to roll back to iOS 9.3.2 will be lessened. Beta 1 is mostly stable, but does have bugs that some people may find annoying or a barrier when it comes to using it on a daily driver main device. The early betas are meant to be deployed on test devices so daily users aren't impacted negatively.

    Technically posting the developer profile is against policy but nobody's going to tell him to take it down. Wait for public beta, it'll be a bit more stable for you.

    Again, if you have to ask, then no, its not safe. Wait for the public beta.

    It's fine. It will make your device more frustrating to use though, so I would wait.

    This is true, its in a buggy state just hoping Beta 2 can fix some issues, wait until Public beta there will obviously be more fixes in that version.

    It's working fine for me. As long as the profile is legit you should have no issues. Just keep in mind what you're signing up for, the beta has a lot of annoying little bugs
