Note: Before installing the iOS 15 / iPadOS 15 public beta, please back up your iPhone or iPad. Since the beta version is not yet complete, and that means you’ll likely run into bugs, glitches and even crashes that leave you locked out of various areas of your iPhone or iPad. Without an archived backup, you won’t be able to restore from a backup if you decide to go back to iOS 14, due to Apple not supporting restore data from newer software updates. Essentially, if you back up your iPhone running iOS 15, you won’t be able to restore from that backup if you want to go back to iOS 14. Therefore, backup is essential.
