How to get the beta previews for iOS 12 and macOS Mojave

Apple’s WWDC keynote saw the announcements of iOS 12 and macOS Mojave. Each received pretty great updates like grouped Notifications and Dark Mode (macOS only) that should greatly improve the usability of the iPhone and Mac. If you’re one of the few who can’t wait until the fall to get their hands on the latest software of the iPhone, iPad and Mac, here’s how you can download the beta previews.

There are two ways to get your hands on a beta preview: having a developer account or signing up for the public beta testing.

The fastest way to get your hands on iOS 12 and macOS Mojave is through a developer preview, but it’s also the hardest. You’ll need a developer account, which costs a hefty $99. Once you have a developer account, you can sign in here and download the preview today.

The second way is much easier but you won’t be able to download the betas today. Public beta testers can begin signing up for the program starting now through Apple’s site, but the betas won’t be rolled out for a few weeks. Apple will send you an email notification when the public beta versions are available.

All of those who dare to sign up for the beta previews, be warned: Beta versions are notoriously unstable and should only be downloaded on a secondary device. Downloading it on a primary device is just asking for trouble.

Good luck trying out all the features of iOS 12 and macOS Mojave.
