    So, iOS 13 doesn’t have a Dev Profile for OTA download and install,

    Does anyone know if this will likely be the case for the public beta?

    Public beta has always been through a profile so I assume that will continue to be the case.

    Like mentioned above Public beta has always been OTA profile, I think the only reason they didn't release one for developers is that they either have some major changes that required iTunes or that they are trying to prevent the public using this version as there is a note on the developer portal warning thrill seekers to avoid until public beta not that it stoped me or many others

    But then you can easily just download Mac and Xcode beta and get 13.

    Like it’s so easily to do ...

    It might be easy to do but it will put some people off but those who really want the software would find a way no matter what

    Very odd that they did not release a profile for it.

    Not odd at all. It's how they used to do it, before they used profiles. And it's a much better way for them to control who has access to it. It's not as much fun, certainly. And there will be a profile for future rounds, either at the public round or even before. But for these first initial betas... no go.

    I understand that is how it used to be, but not what they did recently and they did release profiles for some of the beta versions today, but not all of them. Just not very consistent in their approach.

    They released NO profiles for iOS 13 today. None.

    Interesting, I saw a tweet from somebody where they had mentioned that there were some released. Fake news!

    Technically, they did. A profile is needed to legitimately download macOS and for tvOS for the Apple TV 4K which is an OTA update as there's no other practical way to do it.
