Have you found yourself frustrated with any bugs in some of the recent releases of iOS? Well, fear not, Apple is said to be launching a Public Beta program for iOS 8.3 and iOS 9. There is room for about 100,000 participants for the beta program prior to the release of the updates. The iOS 8.3 beta program will begin in March and iOS 9 beta program after iOS 9 is debuted in June.
Last year, Mac OS X Public Beta program was a massive success prior to the release of OS X Yosemite. With the iOS Public Beta program, Apple hopes to eliminate bugs ahead of their general releases.
iOS 8.3 has been in developers’ hands since early February and according to 9to5Mac “includes support for Wireless CarPlay, an upgraded Emoji keyboard, an enhanced voice for Siri, and simpler login for Google services.” Additionally, the general release for iOS 9–scheduled for fall 2015—will be more focused on fixing bugs, maintaining stability, and boosting performance for the new operating system, as opposed to only focusing on delivering major new feature additions.
If you take part in either of these upcoming Public Beta programs, be sure to let your friends here at Echo know! We love getting tease Tweets from you! And we’ll reciprocate.
