Apple to launch first-ever public betas for new iOS updates

Apple is going to be more proactive in eliminating bugs from new iOS updates and reportedly plans to launch its first-ever public beta program.

Apparently, Apple intends to release the upcoming iOS 8.3 as a public beta in mid-March. 9to5Mac’s sources say that it will be made available via the existing AppleSeed program alongside the third iOS 8.3 beta for developers. Apple will follow this up by making iOS 9 available as a public beta sometime during the summer with a final release scheduled for the fall.

The iOS 8.3 beta will give users a look at some of the new features and fixes. Included in iOS 8.3 is Wireless CarPlay support, an upgraded Emoji keyboard, an enhanced voice for Siri, and simpler login for Google services. The public beta will reportedly be limited to 100,000 people.

Users will be able to quickly report bugs from a dedicated app. Apple will be hoping that this beta gives its team plenty of time to fix the most pressing bugs and issues ahead of the full launch.
