The iOS 13 public beta is the only beta version that is available.  In order to access this beta you will need to enroll in Apple’s iOS beta program. If you have never enrolled in the beta program, you will have to click sign up. Once you click sign up, it’s pretty simple. Sign in with your Apple ID. Don’t have one it’s all gravy because you can click create one now to have one created.
