First time in the history of Apple Inc. the Cupertino giant has opened its iOS 8.3 beta testing doors for normal users to better address bugs and service issues. Through its new initiative called the public beta program Apple is trying to test its next updated version of iOS 8 before it becomes officially available for public.
You can download the iOS 8.3 beta version by signing up for the Apple Beta Software Program on the Apple Seed website by using your Apple ID.
After installing the beta version on your Apple device you can start using the new version which comes with a handful of new features like the long coming diverse emojis, support to Apple vehicle assistant software CarPlay and bug fixes.
It’s notable that Apple has just released its new Software iOS 8.2 last week and it might be weeks or months before we see iOS 8.3 officially rolling out for users. However, if you want to have a firsthand experience on the futuristic software and participate in the trial and error process to make iOS the early taste of Apple latest the updates hassle free the chance is your to grab.
Although, the early taste of iOS 8.3 comes with a fair warning as the beta version will not be as sophisticated as usual official updates. Chances are that you might run into some bugs or face some service problem that may take a long time to fix while using the trial version.
Apple posted a clear advisory message for all users who wish to participate in the beta testing program “Before you install beta software, please be sure to back up your Mac using Time Machine or your iOS device with iTunes. The public beta software is still in development, which means some applications and services may not work as expected.”
As the risk of encountering a bug runs high in beta version Apple also advise business users to better wait for the official iOS8.3 update.
“You should not install beta software on production or business-critical systems. We strongly recommend installing on a secondary system or device or on a secondary partition on your Mac.” The blog on Apple’s website reads.
