Daily tip: How to install a beta version of iOS via XCode or iTunes beta [Mac only]

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/images/stories/2011/06/Screen-shot-2011-06-06-at-10.54.46-AM.png" alt="" title="Screen shot 2011-06-06 at 10.54.46 AM" width="365" height="250" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-64941"

Here is a tip for developers on how to install a beta for iOS using XCode or iTunes. One of the coolest things about being an iOS developer is being able to check out new versions of iOS before they're publicly released. With WWDC 2011 upon us, we should see a beta of iOS 5 soon. If you're a new developer, or you're testing for a current developer, you'll want to make sure you install beta firmware correctly. If you don't, this can lead to problems when upgrading to official or later versions of iOS.

As a forewarning, betas are only intended for developers and testers. Don't expect a beta to be flawless, expect the opposite. I also recommend installing betas on a test device when you can in case something goes wrong.

So if you're new to this process, hit the jump for a walkthrough of how to provision your device and install a beta version of iOS. And obviously, betas are Mac only.
