It is important to start backing up your iPhone data now before doing anything. If you go straight to iOS 16 and then something goes wrong, downgrading to the latest stable iOS 15 will cause you to lose all your data. So I do an iCloud Backup or store the backup locally on my computer through iTunes which is the preferred method. Where you connect the iPhone to the computer and then launch the iTunes program. Next, click on the iPhone mini icon at the top, then press the Back Up Now button and select whether you want to save an encrypted or non-encrypted backup (it is preferable to choose the encrypted version to make sure all data is backed up), and wait for the process to finish.

The easiest way to update your iPhone to iOS 16 is by downloading the developer beta profile. But access to this file, in addition to the developer software package, requires a developer account to be created on the Apple Developer Center site and membership costs $99 per year. However, registration with a developer account is not necessary as there is an “unofficial” but trusted site called Beta Profiles that allows you to download the iOS 16 beta profile as well as iPadOS 16 and others for free.

So, the first step after backing up your data is to open the Safari browser on your iPhone. And here I mean Safari specifically and not any other browser, as it is only possible to download profiles on the iPhone through Safari. Next, go to betaprofiles.com and scroll down and click on the "Install Profile" button under the iOS 16 Download section. When a confirmation message appears, press Allow to begin downloading the file immediately.

After that, the text of Apple's license and terms regarding the iOS Beta version will appear. If you agree, press the "Install" button and confirm the command by pressing Install again to start the installation process of the profile. Seconds later, a pop-up message will appear asking to restart the iPhone to apply the changes, press the "Restart" button and wait for the phone to restart again.
