How to Fix iPadOS 16 Not Showing Up in Settings

If you’re excited about the latest features and improvements on the new iPadOS 16 but can’t seem to find it when you check for software updates, don’t worry. There’s a way to fix that. In this guide, we’ll show you how to get iPadOS 16 even if it’s not showing up in your settings.

First, you need to know that if your device isn’t supported or iPadOS 16 isn’t out yet, you won’t see it in your settings. However, you can install a profile to get iPadOS 16 early. Ensure that your iPad is supported for the profile to work.

To get the profile, open your preferred browser, preferably Safari, and search for iPadOS beta apple. You should see the official Apple beta software program. The latest beta of iPadOS 16 is the same version that will release to the general public. So, installing this version means you won’t need to do two software updates, just one.

Once you find the official Apple beta software program, scroll down and sign up with your Apple ID information. If you’ve already signed up before, sign in to your account. Then select the iPadOS and enroll your iPad. Download the profile and tap on “allow” and close.

After that, go to Settings, tap on General, then VPN and device management. Tap on downloaded profile, select install, and enter your passcode. Then go back to the software update view to check if iPadOS 16 is available. If it’s available, download and install it.

However, if iPadOS 16 still doesn’t show up, it means your iPad model doesn’t support it. That’s just how it is. Knowing this will save you time and frustration.

In conclusion, you’ve seen how to get iPadOS 16 on your iPad even if it’s not showing up in settings. With these steps, you can enjoy all the new features and improvements that come with iPadOS 16.
