We can understand the desperation some people have to try out iOS 6 before the new iPhone 5 launches, Apple event invites were just sent out, and this is thanks to some users not sure if iOS 6 would be enough, so it makes sense they’d want to get hands-on as soon as possible. This isn’t a problem for developers, and they’ve had access to iOS 6 for a few months now, but how can average iPhone users give the new software a try before an official release date?
There is a way and it has been explained in a video below this article, which goes into detail for around 7 minutes. The video creator explains that you’ll need 3 downloads, which include iOS 5.1.1, iTunes 10.6.3, and iOS 6 beta 4. You will need an iPhone 3GS and upwards to install iOS 6, although this might seem a lot of hassle to some people considering the new software should launch later this month.
iOS 6 beta bypass unneeded — we know a number of iPhone users still want to try the iOS 6 beta, and they are not developers, but considering the iPhone 5 will be revealed running iOS 6 in 7 days time, is it really worth it at this late stage?
The chances are iOS 6 will go live for everyone right after the event, or there about, which is due to Apple learning a big lesson about launching a new iPhone and new software on the same day. You can count on iOS 6 going live before the new iPhone launch, so this will be before Sept 21. In our opinion iOS 6 will go live next week, which then allows a gap between the new software and hardware launches.
Would you still bother with the iOS 6 beta bypass for non-developers? If you want to do it, then see the video below and let us know how you get on. As normal we always recommend you wait for official updates that you’re entitled to, so perform this kind of update at your own risk.
