Just like last year, Apple has released the first developer beta of iOS 13 for developers and advanced users. iOS 13 comes with a number of new features and its likely that many users would like to try out the release now in its unfinished state instead of waiting until September for the public release. If you are looking to install iOS 13 beta on your iPhone or iPad but don’t have a developer account, worry not. Follow this guide to install the iOS 13 beta on your iPhone right away.
Download and Install iOS 13 – iOS 13.7 Wirelessly Before you start the download, connect your device to a power source so that the battery doesn’t drain during the update process. It can take anywhere from a few mins to an hour for the update to download and install, depending on how Apple’s servers are handling the load and your internet.
Apple’s developer account has a yearly fee of $99. Having a subscription makes sense for developers who publish apps on the App Store but otherwise, for advanced users, it is nothing but a waste of money. Luckily, you don’t really need a developer account to install the first iOS 13 Developer beta. Wondering how? Follow the steps below.
Do note that unlike the last few years, Apple is no longer offering an iOS beta configuration file. This means you will have to download and install the iOS 13 beta IPSW file using iTunes. You simply cannot use the beta profile on your iPhone to get the iOS 13 beta OTA update.
How to Install iOS 13 Beta 8 on iPhone
Your Mac must have Xcode 11 beta or macOS 10.15 beta installed.
Step 1: Download the iOS 13 beta 8 IPSW for your iPhone.
Step 2: Open iTunes and connect your iPhone to your Mac. If you are connecting your iPhone for the first time, accept the prompt on the device and enter the passcode.
On macOS Catalina, your iPhone will show up in Finder’s sidebar like a removable drive. Click on it and the UI you will get should be similar to one of iTunes.
Step 3: Your iPhone should then be detected by iTunes. Tap on the iPhone logo on the top-right corner of the sidebar.
Step 4: From the Summary panel, hold the Option key and click the Check for Update button. In the window that opens, select the iOS 13 beta 8 IPSW file you downloaded in step 1.
Step 5: The installation process will now start. Your iPhone will restart during the process. Once done, go through the initial setup process and set up your iPhone again. Make sure your iPhone is connected to the internet for activation purposes.
Since this is the first developer beta of iOS 13, you are likely to run into compatibility issues with third-party apps. You are also likely to encounter some stability and performance issues which would be taken care of by Apple in future releases. Do make sure to file bug reports for any bugs or issues that you come across to Apple.

Q: What is checkra1n Windows?
A: checkra1n is a community project for windows to provide a high-quality semi-tethered jailbreak to all, based on the ‘checkm8’ bootrom exploit.
Q: How does it work?
A: Magic hax.
Q: Why was the beta release delayed?
A: We didn't want the release quality to end up like iOS 13.2, you deserve better.
Q: wen eta?
A: bruh we're past that.
Q: How do I use it?
A: Open the checkra1n app, and follow the instructions to put your device into DFU mode. Hax happens auto-magically from that point and the device will boot into jailbroken mode. If you reboot the device without checkra1n, it will revert to stock iOS, and you will not be able to use any 3rd party software installed until you enter DFU and checkra1n the device again.

Q: ugh, I don't like GUI?
A: ok, you can use './checkra1n.exe/Contents/WinOS/checkra1n' from the console.
Q: Is it safe to jailbreak? Can it harm my device / wipe my data?
A: We believe jailbreaking is safe and take precautions to avoid data loss. However, as with any software, bugs can happen and *no warranty is provided*. We do recommend you backup your device before running checkra1n.
Q: I have a problem or issue to report after jailbreaking.
A: Many problems and bootloops can be caused by buggy or incompatible tweaks. Remember many tweaks never saw iOS 13 in the pre-checkra1n era. If you suspect a recently installed tweak, you may attempt to enter no-substrate mode by holding vol-up during boot (starting with Apple logo until boot completes). If the issue goes away, a bad tweak is very likely the culprit, and you should contact the tweak developers.
Q: I have a problem or issue to report and I don't think it's related to a bad tweak.
A: Please check here and follow the bug report template.
Q: I lost my passcode. Can checkra1n decrypt my data or get access to a locked device?

Q: Can I ssh into my device?
A: Yes! An SSH server is deployed on port 44 on localhost only. You can expose it on your local machine using iproxy via USB.
Q: I love the project! Can I donate?
A: Thanks, we love it too! The project does not currently take any donations. If anyone asks for donations, it's a scam.
Q: Where are the sources? I want to write a dark-mode theme and publish the jailbreak as my own.
A: checkra1n is released in binary form only at this stage. We plan to open-source later in 2020.
Q: Why do I still have jailbreak apps present after I used the 'Restore System' option in the checkra1n app and rebooted?
A: This is a known issue with how this functionality works. The apps are not installed anymore, but their icons may stay on the homescreen until iOS rebuilds its icon cache (which we have no control over in non-jailbroken mode).
Q: The checkra1n app doesn't open inside the Windows Package!
A: Follow the instructions in the Package file and drag the app to the Applications folder.
