Install iOS 13 Beta

UPDATE: iOS 13 Beta 2 profile available click here to download!

Hello Everyone,

Just like many of you, I was disappointed with Apple’s decision to only allow iOS 13 Developer Beta to be installed via a .ipsw file and you either had to have a Mac running X-Code 11 Beta or MacOS 10.15 Beta. 


– This method is not supported by Apple and I take zero responsibility to any issues/damage which may be caused to your device by using this method.

– With that said, it’s HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you BACK UP your device before updating to iOS 13.

Let’s get started. First, you will need to download the .ipsw file for your device. I recommend this site as I have been using them for several years now. *NOTE: The .ipsw files are uploaded to Google Drive. Google Drive has a download limit and if these files reach that limit, simply clone the file to your Drive and download from there.

Alternative Direct Download Link :

To download from drive:

  1. Select file of your device with the help of this iPhone / iPad
  2. Add it to your own drive
  3. Make a Copy
  4. Download

Once the .ipsw file has downloaded. Move it to your desktop for easy access.

You will need to download this file here and once downloaded, extract the libimobile2019-master folder to your desktop for easy access as well.

Alternative downlod link: libimobile2019-master

Move the .ipsw file for your device into this folder and rename the file to “restore.ipsw”

Open Command Prompt & type:

cd (drag the libimobile2019-master folder here and press enter)

Now type:

idevicerestore -d restore.ipsw

That’s it! Just let it do it’s thing and don’t touch your device. You will see some messages like “failed” or “no data”. Don’t touch anything and just give it time.

Common issues faced while installing:


  1. Check if your installed itunes is from windows store?
  2. If yes, Download itunes from apple website Link:-
  3. Keep the itunes open for the whole process


  1. Install 3uTools (latest version!) & open it. Connect your phone and head to the Flash & JB tab
  2. Under Easy Flash, select 13beta & download or import your existing IPSW.
  3. Uncheck “Retain user’s data while flashing” for a clean flash. (According to different users retain user data also works)
  4. Click Flash. Backup if needed & confirm.

You are done I guess your Face ID should work now.
