Should I update my iPad to iPadOS 16 Beta?

You must now be debating whether to update your supported devices to iPadOS 16 beta. As is well known, beta software frequently has problems with erratic reboots, battery consumption, app crashes, and even crashes.

Therefore, exercise caution and test new features on a backup device rather than your primary one.

Additionally, make sure to completely backup your device before installing the beta profile to prevent data loss. The most recent backup will be very useful if you ever lose data or decide to go back to an earlier version of iPadOS.
