Should I Install iPadOS 16 Beta on my iPad?

It is a tricky question because there have been numerous instances where it has brought hassle instead of ease. It infiltrates buggy and runny features that make usage more difficult than before.

It can cause battery drain, random rebooting, bricking, and app crashing. Therefore, it is better to use a secondary device to install the Beta version. Moreover, you should ensure a complete data backup because installing the Beta version can cause data loss.

Data backup is essential for installing the Beta versions as it allows users to have safe data storage if they decide to switch back to the previous iPadOS version.
