However, there are many risks involved that can potentially leave you with an unstable iPhone. So, here's what you need to know before you enroll yourself in the iOS 16 Beta Program.

Apple offers iOS Beta programs for people who wish to try the upcoming operating systems before their public launch. You can enroll in the program which will allow you to install iOS 16 on your iPhone before its launch to the public.

Should you be enrolling for the iOS 16 Beta program?

Beta programs are often used by Apple to enable public testing of its newest operating systems to find out any deal-breaking bugs or glitches. Therefore, Beta programs are often unstable which can cause a variety of glitches on your iPhone. You are strongly advised to not enroll in such programs if you use your iPhone device as your primary device.

Various issues such as performance issues, app glitches, unusual battery drain, apps not working properly, etc. are often seen in Beta versions of iOS. That means if you update your iPhone 13, iPhone 12 or any other eligible iPhone, then be prepared for trouble. So, in case you do decide to enroll, you should definitely backup your data to your PC or the iCloud.

Usually, these issues are a deal-breaker for people and they tend to stick to their current iOS in favour of stability over new features. But if you really want to try out these features, you can enroll yourself in the Beta program.

So, if you're willing to deal with bugs in favour of new features, then go ahead and enroll yourself in the iOS 16 Beta program! Otherwise, you just need to wait till September to get the stable iOS 16 update.
