Apple Beta Program – How To Join And Test?
Apple releases the newer version of the IOS a bit late and if you are an early bird and can’t wait then, apple beta program is for you. Apple beta program is one of the way apple tests it’s new software through their users.
Every year at WWDC apple brings out newer features for your Iphone and sometimes you can’t just wait for the official release. So, you can just join the beta program and get the features before the official ios release.
I love improvisation. It’s quite exciting.
Also if you want to become apple beta tester then you can enrol into the public beta program. Initially, Apple beta testing program was paid and the developers had to give 99$/year. Recently, it set the beta program to public and anyone can get access to apple beta software for free for most of them.
For sure you wouldn’t like to wreck your device as beta software is buggy and unstable. So, the public beta program in my opinion is to be tested on dummy Iphones. Beta software on apple is available not only for Iphones but also for Apple TV, IPad, Ipods and MacOs.
