About beta testing
You can often run into problems when testing betas. First of all, not all features are usually available immediately, but will be added and expanded over time during the test period. You may also experience crashes or some apps may not work properly yet. So keep this in mind if you decide to test an iOS update. It is therefore not recommended to install a beta on a device that you use every day, because there can still be many problems in the beta. You can read more about problems caused by the iOS 16 betas in our separate article.
