Those who aren’t registered developers can test-drive iOS 18 and the new Apple Intelligence features when a public iPhone beta drops in July.

The June 10 WWDC keynote just wrapped up, and we learned about Apple Intelligence and other improvements coming to iOS 18 and more this fall.

Apple will release the first iOS 18 beta when the State of the Union address wraps up in the afternoon (this is a keynote for developers providing a technical deep dive).

Unless you’re a registered Apple developer, you won’t be able to install and use the developer beta of iOS 18 until a public beta arrives.

The developer beta is available through the Apple Developer Program at starting today, while a public beta will launch through the Apple Beta Software Program next month at

The latter will host public betas for iOS 18, iPadOS 18, macOS Sequoia, tvOS 18, HomePod software 18 and watchOS 11. In addition, you’ll be able to install and test AirPods beta firmwares. visionOS is unavailable in public beta capacity.

When is the iOS 18 public beta available?

The system requirements for iOS 18 have remained unchanged so that’s a good thing. You still need at least an 2018 iPhone or later, like an iPhone XR or iPhone XS.

The Apple Intelligence AI features across iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia require at least an A17 Pro or M1 chip so you’ll need an iPhone 15 Pro or iPhone 15 Pro Max, or an iPad or Mac with M1 and later, to test them.

Apple has said that iOS 18, iPadOS 18, macOS 15 Sequoia, watchOS 11, tvOS 18 and visionOS 2 will be released to all users in the fall. iOS 18 and watchOS 11 should launch ahead of new iPhones in September, but other updates may arrive a week later as Apple could might hold an event in October to unleash new iPads and Macs.
