iOS 18 beta and iPadOS 18 beta

Apple has released the second beta version of iOS 18 for iPhone and iPadOS 18 for iPad.

iOS 18 beta 2 and iPadOS 18 beta 2 are available to download now for those registered in the Apple Developer beta testing programs. Technically speaking, anyone can install iOS 18 beta on iPhone or iPadOS 18 beta on iPad, but this is really only appropriate for advanced users.

iOS 18 and iPadOS 18 feature some intriguing new capabilities, like Dark Mode icons and color hued icons, Control Center customizations, Apple Intelligence AI features, changes to Photos app, and much more.

Separately, beta testers can also find beta 2 for macOS Sequoia, tvOS 18, watchOS 11, and visionOS 2 as well.

How to Download & Install iOS 18 Beta 2 / iPadOS 18 Beta 2

As usual, be sure you backup iPhone or iPad to iCloud and your computer.

  1. Open “Settings” app on the device
  2. Go to “General” and then select “Software Update”
  3. Choose “Update Now” to download and install iOS 18 beta 2 / iPadOS 18 beta 2 onto your device

A restart is required to complete installation.

Beta versions continue to offer refinement to operating systems that are under active development, but are much buggier and less reliable than final stable builds.

Apple has said the final version of iOS 18 for iPhone will be released this fall, along with iPadOS 18 for iPad.

Separate from the beta releases of system software, the final stable builds of operating systems for Apple devices are currently iOS 17.5.1 for iPhone, iPadOS 17.5.1 for iPad, macOS Sonoma 14.5 for Mac, macOS Ventura 13.6.7, and macOS Monterey 12.7.5 for Macs, watchOS 10.5 for Apple Watch, tvOS 17.5 for Apple TV, and iOS 16.7.8 and iPadOS 16.7.8 for select older model iPhone and iPad devices.
