Want to get iOS 13 beta 1 IPSW link as public download before public beta arrives? Here’s a workaround for it.

Apple has an internal iOS 13 roadmap which includes allowing members of the general public to get amongst the testing action once the company decides to release the firmware onto the Public Beta release track sometime in July. However, if you are simply the type of tech fan who cannot exercise patience and is chomping at the bit to get face-to-face with iOS 13 beta 1, then we have a workaround for you which lets you get it on your device right now.

Keep in mind that under normal circumstances you would need to have access to a valid Apple Developer Account in order to be able to download iOS 13 beta 1 at this stage in its lifecycle. With that said, this is 2019, which means that there are always ways and means to achieve what is not meant to be achieved.

If you are happy to get iOS 13 beta 1 installed on your device ahead of Apple’s official public beta release, and happily accept all of the foibles that come with an early beta of this type, then you can follow the process below to grab the IPSW for your device right now without needing access to an active developer account:

Step 1: Fire up your web browser of choice and navigate to the following address: http://ios.scylla.fun/

Step 2: From that home page, select the Downloads button from the center of the screen.

Step 3: You will be presented with a Downloads folder which is essentially a directory within a Google Drive account. Double click into the Drive folder.

Step 4: Use the directory structure provided to find the file relating to your device. So, as an example, if you have an iPhone X, then you will need: iOS > iPhone X.ipsw

Step 5: Right click on the file and select “Add to my Drive.” Head into the My Drive tab from the left-hand side, right-click the file and select Make a copy.

Step 6: Now, you are able to download the file that you just made a copy of in your own Drive.

Once you follow the process above, you are left with an IPSW file specific to your device which you can restore to your smartphone. Keep in mind previous warnings that this will leave you with Apple’s very first beta of iOS 13 on your device, which, historically speaking, is generally by far the worst release and will be full of immediately noticeable issues and performance woes.
