    How do I go about downloading iOS 13 public beta to my iPhone 7?
    I have tried to do it from Apple‘s website, but it just sits there and loads and loads and loads, but goes nowhere.
    Thanks in advance.

    As far as I remember, I also had problems getting the Beta profile to my devices. I think the site displayed something like “not eligible” once. I’ve logged out and in again, then tried the link once more, and it worked.
    There’s no other way to download iOS 13 Public beta, you have to do it via Apple’s site:

    If you’re trying to download the beta shortly after it’s released you’ll find it can take quite a bit of time or it won’t even start downloading. This is because the Apple public beta download site is being hammered by millions of users from around the world, all trying to download the beta at the same time.

    Well, I logged out, and logged back in, and it seems to have fixed the problem.
    Thank you!

    I haven’t seen any difference. Hope the wifi issues I’ve had are addressed.

    The one difference I’ve seen so far is that my banking app works in iOS 13.1. It hasn’t worked in the last few betas of iOS 13.0.

    Anyone that has loaded 13.1, have you noticed a lot of battery drain?? I seem to have a faster battery drain since the download. Maybe it will settle down after a day or two.

    So far, for me, Siri, and voice to text seem very buggy.

    I can honestly say I don’t use Siri or voice to text very often if at all. But I have noticed a spike in battery drainage. Maybe it will calm down after a little while.

    I've been running beta software on my iPhones since 2012 and have never had the battery drain issues reported by many users.
