Apple to Release Public Beta Builds of iOS

/ 9 years ago


Beginning with iOS 8.3, Apple will start releasing public beta builds of its mobile operating system, according to Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac. Gurman’s report says that Apple will extend this policy to iOS 9 after its introduction at the 2015 Worldwide Developers Conference.

Apple has already initiated a public beta program with its desktop operating system OS X, which began in April last year with OS X 10.9.3, the third Mavericks update, followed by the public beta of OS X Yosemite. The Yosemite build was restricted to the first million sign-ups, but Gurman reports that the iOS betas will be capped at 100,000 users “to maintain a higher level of exclusivity.”

If Gurman’s prediction comes true, then the public beta build of iOS 8.3 will be made available this March.
