Apple released the first public beta for iOS 13, meaning eager iPhone users can download and install the new version of iPhone software to try out all the cool new features that are coming in the fall. New software (especially ones in beta) can mean that certain apps don't function properly, meaning it if you really love a certain app or certain game, there's a chance if you install the beta it might not work properly. The good news is we can confirm that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is working on the iOS 13 public beta.
Apple occasionally offers updates to iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS as closed developer previews or public betas for iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and Mac (sadly, no public beta for the Apple Watch). While the betas contain new features, they also contain pre-release bugs that can prevent the normal use of your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, Apple TV, or Mac, and are not intended for everyday use on a primary device. That's why we strongly recommend staying away from developer previews unless you need them for software development, and using the public betas with caution. If you depend on your devices, wait for the final release.
How to download iOS 13 public beta 1 to your iPhone
The public beta for iOS 13 is new and exciting, but don't forget that the software is a work in progress and things can go awry when dealing with beta software. We highly suggest not putting the beta on your primary device, especially if you depend on certain apps functioning.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is still new
It's true, I have been using Harry Potter: Wizards Unite on the developer beta 2 of iOS 13 (which is the same build as the public beta 1), and I haven't encounter any major issues. Of course, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is still new and has known issues of its own that can cause the game to crash even when you're not running beta software, so proceed with caution and know that you may run into some hiccups with the game anyway.
Have you encounter issues with Harry Potter: Wizards Unite on the new iOS 13 beta?
