When will iOS 18 Public Beta be released?

The iOS 18 Developer Beta was released on June 10 at WWDC24, bringing many improvements and upgrades to the iPhone, including Home Screen customization, a redesigned Control Center, and a preview of Apple Intelligence. Apple has announced that the iOS 18 Public Beta will be released in July, but what is the exact date? Let’s find out.

iOS 18 Expected Release Date

iOS 18 Developer Beta 4

Both iOS 17 Beta 4 and iOS 16 Beta 4 were released in late July:

  • iOS 17 Beta 4: Tuesday, July 25, 2023
  • iOS 16 Beta 4: Wednesday, July 27, 2022

So I expect iOS 18 Beta 4 to be released around July 22-24, 2024.

iOS 18 Public Beta 1

Update: iOS 18 Public Beta was released on July 15, 2024.

Apple has confirmed that the iOS 18 Public Beta will be released in July. There is no specific date, but we can make an educated guess based on past release patterns.

This is a past release schedule:

  • iOS 17 Public Beta 1: July 12, 2023 (37 days from when Developer Beta 1 is released)
  • iOS 16 Public Beta 1: July 11, 2022 (35 days from when Developer Beta 1 is released)
  • iOS 15 Public Beta 1: June 30, 2021 (23 days from when Developer Beta 1 is released)

Based on this schedule, I expect iOS 18 Public Beta to be released this week.

iOS 18 Official Release

iOS 18 will be officially released in September, about a week after the iPhone 16 is unveiled. So it will be around September 16-23.

This is a past release schedule:

  • iOS 17: September 18, 2023 (after September 12 event)
  • iOS 16: September 16, 2022 (after September 7 event)
  • iOS 15: September 20, 2021 (after September 14 event)

What’s Next?

Following the official iOS 18 release, Apple will continue rolling out iOS 18.1 Developer Beta in September. Based on past release patterns, we can expect the first iOS 18.1 Developer Beta to arrive around mid to late September.

  • iOS 17.1 Developer Beta 1: September 27, 2023
  • iOS 16.1 Developer Beta 1: September 14, 2023
  • iOS 15.1 Developer Beta 1: September 21, 2022

Yes, I’m actually liking IOS 18, and as they are implemented everything they talked about at WWDC will be very positive today I have discovered an option that I didn’t have before and if I had no idea what it was:

Enable Emergency Bypass for phone calls

1.- Open the Contacts application and select the contact/person you want to include in the whitelist of Silence and Focus mode restrictions.

2.- Select Edit in the upper right corner.

3.- Tap the Ringtone field.

4.- Activate Emergency Bypass.

5.- Made in the upper right corner.

6.- You should see a message “Emergency cancellation activated” in the “Calltone” field. Done again in the upper right corner to save the changes.

Let’s see what you think?, I’m sure I’m the last to find out about this option, jajajajaja
