iOS 13 beta 2 for developers shifts to OTA delivery, but you need to install the profile first on your iPhone or iPad before the update will show up. As Apple noted for the first beta, it continues to include the following warning for beta 2:
Important Note for Thrill Seekers: If you’re interested in living on the edge and trying out the great new features in iOS 13, we strongly advise waiting for the many bug fixes and refinements coming to the public beta next month
