Initial recommendations

You must bear in mind that being a beta version is not free of errors and mistakes.  If you install this beta on your iPad you will notice these incidents, so the experience may not be the best. There are also certain incompatibilities with some third-party apps. You must be sure and in case you want to start the installation,  remember to make a manual backup or backup of your information.  So when you go back to the latest version of iOS 12, do it without a problem.

Concluding observations

Once downloaded, it will proceed to install and end in a reboot, similar to when an update is received via OTA. You will notice some changes in the initial configuration, one of them the dark mode.

Enjoy the beta and discover all the news that iPadOS 13 has for you. Remember that in mid-September, most likely the day of the Apple Event where the new iPhone XR 2, iPhone XI and XI Max will be presented along with the rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro iOS 13 will be officially launched.

If you want to report an error in iPadOS 13, the Feedback app will be useful. Did you dare to install the beta?
