1. Beta versions of operating systems are often pre-release versions intended for testing. They may have bugs, performance issues, and unexpected behavior that could threaten the stability of your device.

2. Beta installations may occasionally result in data loss or corruption. Before installing a beta operating system, it is highly recommended to backup your device to another Mac or PC to avoid losing important data.

3. Apple’s official support may be limited to beta versions.

4. Some third-party accessories or devices may not work properly.

With good care, however, they are a good way to test and preview new functions.

Now that you know the cons, you might want to go one step further! To do this, you must first sign up for the Apple Beta program. Please note that your iPhone must be running iOS 16.4 or later.
