Get Familiar with the Installation Process

Get Familiar with the Installation Process

If you're new to the iOS beta process you'll want to take some time to familiarize yourself with the installation process. If you find it intimidating, you might want to hold off on the iOS 10.3.3 beta until you get comfortable with it all. 

We've put together a quick guide that will take you through the iOS beta installation process. It'll hold your hand through all of the steps you need to take.

Run down the steps and see if you feel comfortable. If you don't, it might be worth holding off for a few days, a few weeks, or longer.

Again, most of you are probably better off waiting for the official iOS 10.3.3 update to arrive.

    You should note that doing a backup through the cloud will not be of any use. If you encounter some major hiccups and/or can’t use iOS 10, you will need to roll back your operating system to the latest public iOS from Apple (iOS 9.3.4). You CANNOT role back from iOS 10 to iOS 9 using your backups stored in the cloud. You need to make an “archived backup” before proceeding to upgrade to the iOS 10 Beta. This is really easy and I will name the steps here:

    How to make an Archived Backup on iTunes:
    1. Connect your phone to whichever computer is running your iTunes.
    2. Under “Backups” choose “This Computer”
    3. Underneath that, click “Encrypted” (Note: this is essential if you want to save all your passwords, HomeKit and Health info. Not selecting this will wipe all of this data)
    4. Click “Backup Now” and wait for it to finish
    5. Once finished, click on iTunes menu and then “Preferences”
    6. Go to the “Devices” tab and highlight the backup you just completed
    7. Right click that backup and choose “Archive” and you are all done!
    Note: To know whether you have successfully archived a backup, it will have the date and time next to it of when this archive took place. And remember, you cannot simply archive a backup through an “iCloud Backup.”

    Hopefully not, but if for some reason you need to restore to previous version, simply google how to downgrade and restore iOS on whichever device you are using. You will have to do this is “recovery” mode and is fairly simple if you follow those instructions correctly. Hope this helps! :)

    “Early software is extremely unpredictable and it can (and probably will) cause problems on your device.”

    I’ve already transfer my photos, podcast, music, video to my PC in case I lost them when updating with WinX MediaTrans

    Thank you, Adam, very useful. But I need to know what other problems it is likely to cause on my iPhone…

    I have had iOS 10 Beta for two weeks and it is VERY stable. I’m actually really impressed by how stable and compatible with my apps it’s being.

    ADITYA: Downloading any Apple beta software from Apple does NOT void your warranty. It says it right on their website.

      Why would you need to download what you already have? When IOS 10 comes out for everyone you will not even notice. You will already have iOS 10 and won’t have to do anything.

    Most worthless post from the most worthless website on the entire internet. This entire site is one giant native ad.

      Haha so true, yet we find ourselves here for some reason? I think my first comment above (Chris) has more useful information than this entire “article.”
