Note: Geekermag does not force anyone to install iOS 12, if you’re installing the iOS 12 Golden Master update, then you’re doing this at your own will.

Keep in mind:

Make sure to back up your device while it running iOS 11. There are two ways to do that, either use iCloud or iTunes methods. But I recommend you to it by iTunes. Its because if you choose the iCloud method, then it will overwrite the past iOS 11 back-ups with a brand-new iOS 12.

I know no one would like to open the iTunes but believe me its convenient and it hardly takes few seconds. You can check this support page for more help.

Here goes the first step for installing the iOS 12 on your iPhone and iPad:

1. On your iPhone or iPad open the Safari browser and visit this page (
