Developer betas aren’t advised for everyday usage since they might have flaws and make your phone more challenging to operate. They need an Apple Developer Program registration, which costs $100 per year.

Back up your phone before you begin 

It might be exciting to get your hands on beta software, but there are safety measures you must take while updating. You should back up your smartphone in case you choose to change back to iOS 15 since all prerelease software, including the iOS 16 beta, may include bugs and other problems that make your device more challenging to operate.    

Every time your iPhone is plugged into power and Wi-Fi during your typical sleeping hours, it should automatically do a backup. If this backup option is turned off, you may still backup your smartphone by navigating to Settings > Your Name > iCloud > iCloud Backup and then selecting Back Up Now.
